    I am interested in doing the CNAP course, but not sure if its worth it, should I be doing the CCNA instead.

    If anyone has done the CNAP course or just want to chip in let me know please... :thumbleft

    i think you should do one course at a time, it will only confuse you... unless of course you are not studing the courses mentioned in your profile: btw: i havent heard of CNAP before, so i cant help you there... sorry

    you mean CCNP ... and to do the CCNP you HAVE TO have done CCNA first... but before you do CCNA i suggest you look at Network+.....

    CNAP could be Cisco Networking Academy Program, which are courses rather than just certs.

    Edit: See here.

    Thanks to all for your posts

    Cheeckmaster - Not yet studying any, appologies for misleading profile, trying to decide which is for me as i am looking to change career path.

    Zimbo - I do mean CNAP which Harry correctly ID'd as Cisco Networking Academy Program, but I don't know if its a worthwhile course or should I be looking at CCNA/P etc?

    Harry - Do you know if the CNAP course is worthwhile? My employer, an FE College, is running the academy but I don't really know if its anything close to doing the certs that Zimbo mentions.

    Man I'm getting confused with all these different certs and courses.

    I'd not heard of it until you mentioned it, so can't help on that.
    I know what you mean... :ohmy

    what the CNAP is a series of courses which help you attain the Cisco certification like CCNA and CCNP... One way of getting CCNA certified is through a CNAP... another way is to buy the books yourself and study that way..

    Hi again

    That's just what i wanted to hear, I might look into the SNAP some more then, option to take the certs at the end and some practical experience from what i can muster, thanks for the advice.

    zimbo,

    I read the threads in threaded view because that way, specific questions can be answered specifically. That's why I was replying to elmopants' original post. Sorry if I unintentionally came across as being "hardnosed" at you.

    CNAP is an excellent choice for anyone starting out in Networking. It will give you the fundamental background you need (which, believe me, although boring to start with will make so many concepts easier to understand first time later down the line) - and will also prepare you better for the CCNA exam as it covers the material in more depth.

    If you can take the CNAP route and are not already proficient in networking it is definitely recommended.

    That said, there's nothing you can't do without a load of old Cisco kit and some books - the Cisco official guides are actually really good (a breath of fresh air for anyone coming from the MS bog-paper)
