Re: CCNA Courses from a Good college online.

Silly me - I missed the online bit.

 

I think Cisco network acadamy are usually courses you attend in person.

 

When I first started, long long ago, I bought the Cisco Press study guide, and just did that.

No worries at all... 😀

Yes, that is the thing, With limited time. I would be better off following a online course. Udemy has many courses, but not sure if the validity is the same as coming from an online college or Uni. 

 

Haha, well some people are genius, just the cisco study guide huh.  👍.. Me.. not so much.. would definitely  need support 😅

CCNA is offered by the Open University CCNA Modules This might be better for anybody thinking of spending time in network engineering and management.

Re: CCNA Courses from a Good college online.

For CCNA R&S, I used CBT Nuggets, Wendell Odom's book, and Todd Lammle's book. For labs, I had Boson labs thru my school but I think you'd be fine with either some eBay gear or Packet-Tracer labs. 

 

For the new CCNA due in February 2020, there's already course materials out there and available. 

 

CBT Nuggets for me was Jeremy Cioara, who is really engaging! My partner (db admin) would eavesdrop and crack up.

 

Wendell Odom dives into detail more, but is very dry.

 

Lammle was a little more surface level, but more engaging.... to me. I've had coworkers tell me he's also dry, but networking is My Thing so I was pretty happy.

 

Pluralsight also has some older courses that still overlap with the new requirements. If I had to get one online training, I'd get CBT Nuggets.

Re: CCNA Courses from a Good college online.

I can recall doing a free on-line Juniper course that covered the fundamentals extremely well. JNCIA has several streams which would be of interest to a future professional, such as Dev-Ops, Enterprise Routing and Switching, Data Center, Service Provider and Cloud.

 

JNCIA is an introductory qualification, and need not be particularly product specific. Sometimes, it is useful to get an alternative view on a topic.

If you want to learn some about network reliability engineering and automation, Juniper helped create NRE Labs.

 

Very highly recommended.

Re: CCNA Courses from a Good college online.

You're not living under a rock. Unless you talk to people who've been there and done that, it's hard to know what training resources are considered solid. Your time is valuable, and there's no sense in wasting it on training materials that are missing just

 

huge huge chunks

 

of information, or are very badly written. Or have awful static and unpleasant speaking voices, lol.

Re: CCNA Courses from a Good college online.

Exactly, I agree 100% . If you are going to spend hours on a course, its best to reap from the best. Some try to help each other the best way possible with the experience they have gained . Asking this question here had given me many insights from You an everyone else who has commented here. Thank you Nash and everyone.
