Self-paced e-Learning from Global Knowledge...
Has anybody used the self-paced e-learning from Global Knowledge for Cisco Certification Courses? I was checking them and they seem different than what they offer for virtual-classroom e-learning or instruction-led.
What are your thoughts on this?
Nothing beats reading, hands on and asking questions for true knowledge. The cert may get you an interview somewhere but the knowledge gets you the job. Ya I am one of them that does the interviews and I am continuously amazed at the lack of technical understanding by so many (make that most) of the candidates. The market is full of cerified people but lacking in understanding.
I have to look at CCNPs to get even basic network knowledge and even then some can't spell EIGRP.
This isn't a slam against the CCNP cert because I was unqualified to work on a major network when I first got mine, but they recognized my drive to learn more and hired me anyway and now I recommend the new hires. Guess what I look for during interviews.
