    Just took the application test and hit 80%. Pass mark is 75% so I assume I move onto the final stage.

    Has anyone else applied or taken the course? I have a subscription to Safari Books so I will probably watch the first course and then read the official press before the course starts. (Think its a suggested start date of 28 December).

    Meant to be a 4 month course for both Exams, but if I can get a head start, hoping I can have it done within 3 months.

    Well done fella :) I've filled out the 3rd section and am awaiting to hear back. I've gone for the 28th too, but means I will need to halt my other studies if I get in as I don't think I'm very good at studying for multiple certs.

    In essence yes mate. You get access to the forums, training material and access to instructor lead classes. They also provide Vouchers for the exams.

    I'm 99.9% sure I am In, just waiting on the confirmation email. Soon as I get that, I will hit Safari Books for the online course and ready in time for the actual course to start.

    The government need more pentesters to get involved in cyber warfare. Can't really see how comptia would be relevant.

    Well, work have setup some sort of apprenticeship scheme via the government with Learn Direct. It's kinds of like learning on the job.

    I've applied for the Network Engineer which include CCNA (ICND 1+ 2, Sec+ and CCNA Sec). I've been told I have been selected, just need to work out the training plan now.

    Congratulations @Jaron78 , I'm sure you'll learn a lot. Hopefully you can chuck a few discussions into the Cisco area on what you're studying and anything cool you come across on your travels

    Cheers Jim. Really looking forward to it. Will keep everyone updated on how it's going. Going to hit Safari Books before the course so I have a head start.

    Wow, congrats. that's so much going on for you these coming months. Good luck! I'm nervous about completing just the cyber ops ones in 4 months. I hope I can extend this if I need more time as sometimes I need to restudy certain areas that I have difficulty with.

    Also, when you pass your Cyber ops then officially you will have the CCNA - was the plan to do a CCNP afterwards?

    I'm really not sure in all honesty.

    I think it depends on how interesting I find the course. I'm torn between Network Ops and Cyber Sec.

    Will complete Cyber Ops then straight I to the Network Ops apprentice scheme through work and see what I enjoy most I think mate.
