    Hi, I'm Leon from Brooklyn. I'm a licensed NY attorney and work as a Litigation Support Project Manager. I don't have a technical background (apart from on-the-job training in Litigation discovery tools). The more I work in this industry the more I feel like I need fundamental training in IT. I just got a Groupon offer for a Cisco Network training package. I signed up for it because it was cheap but I have no idea if it is good/useful. My goal is to eventually be able to write code, e.g to write awesome queries and edit modules in MS Access

    @Leonbc welcome talk about jumping in at the deep end with your training but I'm afraid it seems like you've picked the wrong sort of training with regards to your goals and Access specific training would be better.

    Hi Ben, thanks for replying. I do sound confused. I partly took the networking course with the goal to be more technically competent in the long term. Access has nothing to do with that. Aside from the networking course, one of my goals is to be more competent at programming, including knowing VBA

    @Leonbc - i was in Brooklyn a few weeks ago, watched the Nets play the Trailblazers.
    CISCO stuff apart from the utter basics tends to be quite advanced and very specific. You'd probably do better with a more generic networking or IT course. All the same if you have an interest and an aptitude it might be useful, but if it's really in depth it may well scare you away.

    I just want to say that I'm grateful to get the replies I have gotten so far. I expect you are right that it is too advanced. However, I don't know what my starting point is without doing an undergraduate degree or attending night school ( I don't have much free time to attend night school - but I have more free time to do online courses. The problem with free online courses that don't offer the potential hint/glimmer of certification is that I lack motivation to complete them.

    @Leonbc
    Firstly, welcome!
    Secondly - can you write a bit more about what your current level of expertise is, and put a bit more flesh on the bones of what you want to do. I suggest you start a new thread, possibly in general chat, to do this so that our wider membership can see it and respond.
    We have some seriously clever and experienced people on here and I am sure they can help you decide the steps you need to take to achieve your goals and what to do to start the ball rolling

    Hi y'all! I've been lurking for a while now but I've only really started posting "properly" recently so I thought I'd better post in the welcome thread! I can't say who I work for or I'll get in trouble, but you've probably heard of us. I'm mostly registering so I can try and get an idea of what being a Network Manager in a school is like, as this is where I want to eventually end up in my career. I did teacher training for a while before realising that I was much better at supporting teachers than actually teaching myself, and I was already a pretty big computer nerd, so moving into Network Management/teching just seems like a smart idea. I'm currently doing a CCNA course (passed part 1 on monday, booyah!) and after that I'm going to look into doing some microsoft AD qualifications too.

    So uh yeah, hi!

    Howdy Y'all,

    Been on here a few months now, but never formally introduced myself through this thread! So, Howdy! I'm Liam, 18 and from a small town call Stourport. I'm working as a apprentice ICT Technician in the Midlands. I've completed my course and passed both exams, finally in the last leg of being an "Apprentice". Which makes me CompTIA A+ Qualified.
