Most of the topics covered on this site deal with Ethical Hacking topics, but a solid graps of general security is a must. This board covers those more general credentials from CompTIA, ISC2, SANS, etc.

Instead of CHFI you could do an Encase cert.
Good alternatives for LPT would be: eCPPT or OSCP

Furthermore I agree with above poster, a lack of jobs. For example the country where I live right now does not have any computercrime laws. Forensics would be useless here but pentesting is something that could take off in the near future.
If you work for a CERT/CIRT I would recommend the CHFI though as it would give you at least basic knowledge of obtaining and handing evidence.
Well, whatever you choose please write a review on this site. I'd like to read it.
