Hi all,

I did Comptia A+ and enjoyed it. I'm now thinking of going mainstream in IT and doing some of the Cisco Courses. Has anyone done CCNA? What are the pre-reqs for it? Can you recommend some other providers too?

Thanks,

I've never heard of Comptia A+ But I did Cert II in I.T back in high school. If you do well at school I'd recommend choosing a degree in I.T. If not just do some certificates or go to TAFE / private college.

I'm in year 12 currently, however I know a lot of IT professionals who have shared with me their eduction and career experiences. Next year I plan to do either a Bachelor of Information Technology or a Bachelor of Computer Science. Whilst in uni, I plan to do a couple of CompTIA courses, maybe MCSE or MCP and CCNA. Having a uni degree gets your foot in the door, normally helps you jump to the front of the pack when applying for a job. It won't always get you the job though, having the other certifications under your belt proves your experience in specialised areas.

I plan on working towards network administration, so naturally Cisco is important, and in addition I plan on doing CompTIA Network+.

Also take note that in the IT sector, most professionals will have these or similar certifications. The more education you can get the better.

I wish you good luck in whatever you choose to pursue. Are you currently working in IT already?
