    Hi everyone,

    I am just about the start doing the CCNA by self-study and after reading some of the other threads thought that this would be a useful place to spend some time.

    I passed my A+ and N+ last summer and the N+ made me think about the possibility of a career change. I am an IT teacher but my degree is Chemistry so I want to get some serious qualifications and also some real work experience in the field.

    Anyway I am intent upon doing the CCNA and am also interested in Red Hat certs as I run Fedora 10 on my Desktop and also have set-up a LAMP platform running on Fedora, MySQL, PHP and Apache which is currently what I spend most of my time working on.

    Looking forward to reading and contributing to this forum.

    Cheers

    Welcome to CF :biggrin

    I agree with you 100% that you need a career change. You are far too qualified to be an IT Teacher. I've yet to come across an 'IT Teacher' with any sort of real technical knowledge. They certainly know their way around MS Office, but their abilities seem to end there. (I may just be unfortunate, but I'm basing this on about 14 different teachers)
