    Hey guys..doing a bit career change in my mid 30s towards something I have always wanted to do... I just passed my network + and my 801 for a+ doing 802 this week... I am starting CCNA next... I always wanted to get this going and I would start studying and than I would just stop after a few weeks.. So I did one of those schools to get the ball rolling.. But Im glad I did it... I have always loved computers and networking..Is everyone in here from England? I didnt see any guys from America lol...But Im glad I found this forum cuz I want to keep getting more and more certs...Hope to find a pretty ok entry level job with a+ network + and ccna under my belt...and hopefully I can get some help on what direction to go next... Nice to meet you all..

    Welcome :)

    I think there's a few guys on here from the states, makes no difference as the qualifications are all the same.

    Nice work on the A+ & N+ - one thing i would say, is going straight in with a CCNA, without prior workplace experience, may not necessarily work in your favor when going for jobs, but the CCENT may be a better stepping stone, and then onto the CCNA.

    Some employers may class you as "Overqualified" for an entry level job with a CCNA.

    Of course others may not, but in experience i have seen this before

    Good luck with the studying either way :)

    I was thinking that too with the ccna but I figured I'd give it a shot. With the school I'm in they had a deal with taking those 3 courses so I went for it. I was hoping with the 3 certs and the fact that I took the classes would look good on my resume. I know the CCNA is going to be pretty hard but I think I'll do well. Thanks for replying. I'm glad I found this forum
