Hi folks,

I have got a nephew of mine just out of high school who wants to pursue a career in Computing-to do a CISCO course to be specific (coz one of his mates's mate has done it and is doing well!-so he argues).

Is this kind of course any good at all,careerwise,personal development etc?

Is this the 'best' way to get into this kind of industry? I believed all along Cisco to be some kind of networking systems-right?? If so is just doing a CISCO course not rather too limited in scope than doing an all-encompassing Networking course-am thinking along the lines of A+ or C+ networking courses?

Please advise accordingly!

Thanks in advance.

Please note-I have reposted same topic thread under the Networking column-having realised a wee bit later that it might be more appropriate there!

My apologies for the duplication!

Cheers and lloking forward to reading your comments.

Sikefu.
