I'm currently freelancing graphic design as my "day job" while working on learning IM on here as my most recent endeavor. I was looking at taking some courses offered at a local technical school. The course is called "CISCO/ Networking Academies" but the website hasn't been updated in some time and is woefully brief on what the class actually entails. Three major questions for BHW: * Anyone have a guess what the course might actually entail, and what skills I might need going into it? (good at math, whatever) * Any idea what a resulting job likely entails? * Is a certification (which is what they are offering) enough to actually land an entry level position in said profession? Or am I wasting my time if I'm not going after a degree? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
