My Network+ Journey (2021)
My IT career has been an interesting one to say the least. When I first decided I wanted to be in IT, I went to do a networking course at a local college. Unfortunately, the instructor got sick and never showed up to a *single* lesson.
As a result of that, my networking knowledge never really got off the ground. I'm great with theory, but if you ask me to configure a Cisco/Juniper....nope. Not gonna happen. I got into security and got my WAPT, Pentest+, OSCP etc and luckily never really needed to configure a Cisco device.... but as I'm in the "2nd quarter" of my IT career, I've found that I was seeing more and more topologies, more IPv6, more IoT - it suddenly dawned on me that networking has been my achilles heel.
Last year I did my WAPT, Pentest+ in six months - I attempted AWAE but it was far, far too painful and too hard for me, as a non-programmer. So this year, I've got 2-3 more certs in mind: Network+ and eJPT. I wont explain my reasoning for eJPT here, but for now, I'll update this thread once per week as I've done with previous certs until the exam date!
