Re: Best Path to take... CCNA or MCSE or something else I guess
our network engineers are CCNA trained, they're still utterly useless at their job though.
For example we had a store with a router down, engineer was on site told us he'd done everything he could and it was semi working, when he left the internet was still down.
called out a BT engineer who went on site, reported that the power cable was not plugged in, plugged it in and charged nearly £300 for the visit.
Moral of the story: being certified don't mean squat if you're useless
IMHO, if you start up CCNA and move up to say, CCNP in the future; would be a good path. If you want to be a network guy obviously, CCNP/CCNA aren't that useful if you want to be a desktop support guy.
