My buddy just signed up for the Google IT Coursera course (they offer a free 7-day trial) and it's pretty structured. You have weekly video series and have quizzes and grades that are due once a week. You can easily accelerate through everything, but if you think you're going to just pop in and out of this course you'll have a bad time.

Thinking about this myself, since I took a course eons ago that supposedly prepped me for A+ and Net+ (yet somehow couldn't spring for the exams, despite how much the school cost), and the additional security stuff would be nice. Structured is good - I'm terrible at self-paced/self-starting.

Wonder if it will have any effect on compTIA. They need some healthy competition in the entry level arena, because their current offerings are garbage tier BS, IMO. But I'm jaded because of the BS I have to put up with in the DoD/cleared sector.

Clearance, pulse, and a sec+. = Job regardless of whether you know anything or have a desire to learn.

Reeeeeaaaally. <Googles Security+> <contemplates the pain of dealing with government bullshit>.

This is an interesting thing I saw on Reddit. Google is putting out their own entry level IT support coursework because they feel the current certification environment is not providing them with enough qualified candidates. Might be an option for those debating the merits of A+ and MCSA stuff.

Could also be good for people with gaps in their fundamentals knowledge like IT Automation.

This might just be what I need. I don't think I have the discipline to self-learn from text on my own and work/personal stuff kept me from enrolling in an entry level IT program my local community college offers for the winter quarter.

So, uh, any of you guys deal in long haul fiber networks? MEF Carrier Ethernet Certs or anything like that?

This new network job is a world of difference from enterprise Cisco networking.
