Well a one-day course will make you one of the most highly trained,regarded,and experienced IT specialists in the world so if NASA or MI5 doesn’t snap you up I am sure a F1 team would.

I tend to keep one eye open with deals like this as there are some shockingly bad Cisco CCNA course providers, such as OpenITTraining, whom I won't be using again. I've checked multiple sources and am confident that these training providers are legit

I did a lot of free stuff with CommSupport a few years back (while I was out-of-work).

They are really good courses, great people and Jo knows his stuff. They are shown through Citrix with live chat and sometimes video and happy to chat afterwards. A lot of the previous free courses were late into the night (10pm finishing around 2am).

Will be doing this as a catchup even though, I didn't end up going the Cisco route for employment but learnt loads and something to look at in the future!

Agreed, these are very good and from an IT support POV , very useful to help troubleshoot

Yeah, I work for a company that integrates with Cisoco telecomms systems. I end up doing more of the the supposed telecomms 'engineers' work then my own.

Really funny when you start telling them how their own Cisco solution plugs together and what IPs route where etc...

Are these clowns still teaching how ISDN works, and suggesting small company networks need subnetting?

Interesting...might have to check this one out!
heat added!

This is only possible after CCIE

Does the UK employers value CCNA certification ?

If your referring to the 'sharing' stuff, they are a small team of people so every little helps.

Not CCNA unless its changed since I did it is all theory and can be learnt from the CCNA book and the test taken without attending any training sessions

Each to their own I realise some people like Instructor Led Training I'm not knocking the offfer I'm just saying

Employers value experience. You can do all the certs you like but experience is crucial. So you'll typically start on a low wage position and work your way up. It's very easy to find out what employers want by looking for the job position you realistically want and read what their requirements are. If you're 16-18 you can get on the apprentice scheme and the employer gets £1000. If you're over 18 and typically under 24 then the employer contributes to your apprenticeship. If you're older then you need to look for trainee positions and see what they require. There's no way you can do a cert and go straight in for the higher paid jobs unless you're an expert bull sniffer.

If you still need help then look on Indeed and Monster and other job sites and look for trainee positions and more advanced ones so you get a contrast and you'll see what they require in terms of experience and qualifications. Also remember that you might start out thinking you want to be a network engineer but it's not all it's cracked up to be. The trick is if that happens, you just make sure whilst your employed you take advantage of more training courses and get all the experience you can so you can jump ship to a new position.

I've been in to computers and hacking since I was 12, I'm now nearly 47, I fur king hate computers now, I love coming home and putting on my own PC knowing I probably don't have to fix it. I have a load of computers in my house, I've done the geek thing, I can't wait for it all to end to be honest.

Well said, been in computers for about 30 years myself, not to your level, but got into comms over this last 6 years and love it , though still lots to learn.

Like you love going home and not having to fix any computer based problems.

Can this be downloaded? As away at moment but would like to have a look.

good if you can get the points for the class (voted hot)

if you get the one day I assume it will be:
tcp/ip
sausage pizza
syn/ack
csmacd
ping

then, oh you need the other 5 days :-)

Joe Spotto from commsupport is the king of CCNA CCNP and nearly a king of the CCIE training. What this man does not know is not worth knowing. A legend in his own right, just don't get him started on politics.

He got me to CCNP and I am now on £43000k + pension + 27 days holiday.

sorry but you statements just shows what you know. Of course you need to learn ISDN and subnetting

only thing I'll say is you wont learn nothing in a single day, to get a CCNA 12 week and CCNP 36 weeks. Is what I'd say is needed

Why? in three years you won't even be able to buy an ISDN line, and name one reason why the average small company needs subnetting.
I'm, sure there's a Cobol application running on token ring right now, but that's what old people with beards are for.

Wow! They pay 43 Million £'s a year for CCNP.!? Thats pretty good going.

Seems like a type of pyramid marketing:
You've got to get seven people to actually sign up to the course to get just the one day course! I suppose they could be "virtual" people.
The five day course seems like what used to be Comptia A++ course (I think it was called) hardware based, you didn't learn much. Not very useful.

Its also just a 'Intro to Networking' not a full course...

These are ideal for trying out the company and this type of distance learning.

I personally get on well with tutor lead/classroom based learning as opposed to just reading a book so these were a really helpful addition to learning. Add in a couple of books for reference and YouTube along with GNS and you have all you need.

Its also just an alternative incentive with nothing stating you have to share and invite people to gain access to anything. Unlike pyramid schemes.

Is this an online course?

If you do this and want more, Cybrary is a good source for free training. I posted this back in February...

Certs cost obviously.
