I did mine at college where they have a Cisco Academy. Mine was a fully funded full time course for one year, we did some MCPs too.

I wouldn't touch an online course if I was you, if you're going to self study then do it yourself. You can download all the material to do it from the usual dodgy places or you can purchase the books. I would recommend the CBT Nugget videos in conjunction with the Cisco Press books and the Transcender test exams. You will need to download GSN3 and some IOSes to simulate the practical labs.

If you can actually go somewhere to do it then I would recommend that over self study. To get on the actual kit is invaluable and to be able to ask questions to the tutor is hugely helpful.

I will say if you have never done any sort of networking before it is very difficult, there's a sharp learning curve and dozens of acronyms to remember. I'm working my way through my CCNP now and I'm finding it easier than the CCNA!

You can go CCNA - CCNP - CCIE I believe, once you're CCIE you don't ned to recertify like when you're just CCNA or CCNP.

It was three days.

If you did a fast track course somewhere you could do it in five days but you'd pay over a grand to do it.

It got me my first job while I was studying for it but I was fortunate. Out of the 25 people on my course I'd say less than 10 of them got jobs immediately after the course so it's not a guarantee of job by a long shot. You'd still enter an IT job at the most junior level.

The CCNA gives you no real practical experience, you couldn't really apply anything you learn into a business but it shows you have the ability to learn a difficult skill and are computer literate.

Most of these qualifications are done in this way, your employer would send you on them. You would usually have a little experience on the subject before you go. They're very intensive!
