    I agree on the CCNP side of things, if you have the various CCNA's why not improve on them with the CCNP?

    Especially now the recent changes require you only to sit 3 of the exams to certify in CCNP (Previously 4)

    Since you have the CCNA r/s; voice; and soon security, I guess you're involved in all of the aspects. Which one is more prime at the moment? Obtain that professional track.

    If it helps, people have told me it makes sense to get the CCNP before the CCVP. The CCNP seems to better prepare you (in terms of foundations) for the CCVP.

    Thanks for all the advice,, i will do a cisco and a microsoft one in turn, i do voip at the moment but not cisco... bit too expensive for our customers - but the architecture is similar, and will need to administer an entire network, not just the routing. Have to fit this in with 250miles a day looking after our existing customers.. but i guess no pain...............
