Hi Guys,

My Company have just announced that they will be doing "Apprenticeships". Basically, they are offering training courses, but they pay for everything. I have applied for Network Engineer which is 3 Stages. Stage 1, you are given the option of CCNA, N+ or entry level Juniper.

Now I already have the N+, and hope to have the CCNA soon so my only option is Juniper, Juniper JNCIA - Junus and then Juniper JNCIS - Ent.

Ive done some research and it seems quite high in demand, what are your thoughts please? Will the CCNA put me in good stead for the Juniper courses?

    Go for it. The CLI is very different, and takes some getting used to. You would probably understand it immediately after using Cisco, but it's a lot more to type. I've only read the book for the service provider track, not the enterprise one. I noticed right away that BGP, MPLS, and IS-IS were included, which are not on CCNA routing and switching, but the bulk of it is the same concepts applied with a different vendor. If nothing else, you'd get a good review of protocols from a different perspective. I didn't test in it yet. I'll schedule that once the CCNP is done. Just did some reading to help with the Junipers I use at work.
