Passed my CCNP Routing exam


Recommended Posts

As above (Its a computer networking qualification). Been working my ars* off for months so glad I managed to pass it. Got the switching exam in a few weeks and then have to study for the remote access and trouble shooting ones. Should mean a good payrise next year whether at this company or another.

If you already do some Soho type networking and understand ip addressing its a good start mate. Have you done any other certifications? lots of people tend to do the microsoft stuff and then move into Cisco. They do it by getting into a job that is primarily network/desktop troubleshooting or building with a little cisco in there as well. Then start to specialise in the cisco after passing the CCNA.

CCNA is the way in, its harder than the microsoft exams but if you can get your head around advanced ip addressing (just requires a bit of practice) then you are half the way to passing the exam. I did this when I left the Marines and got myself a specialist network engineer job and started working towards my CCNP. I've put a huge amount of time into studying over the past year and a half . Quite literally every single day. I passed my MCSA and CCNA last year before leaving the Marines (each one in about 3mths) and have been working on the CCNP stuff since then. I find it fascinating but maybe I'm just a bit of a geek!

Was considering that Andy, Should have the full CCNP by the winter, and I've got some firewall work that I'm doing in a couple of weeks so it'll be good to get more into that side of things. I'll probably be getting VOIP work soon as we are offering it to clients worldwide now. I'll probably decide which direction to go once the CCNP is finished, but security is the most likely. VOIP will be handy experience to have on top.
