Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If u r interested to work as Network specialist, it is better to go for CCNA. CCNA gives u extensive knowledge of networking/switch/router/hub
but before changing your field just consult with the right person

    You could need something like A+ Essentials and/or Network+ before going for CCNA. It would depend on how non-IT you are.

    A+ basically focuses on hardware.... where N+ focuses on networking, though u have basic knowledge of hardware & networking, so I think A+/N+ is not necessary to do. U can do CCNA for ur better career in Networking. Right now, I am not recommending for Red Hat, because before doing RH related course, extensive knowledge is required on Linux system. U didn't mention, for your linux knowledge. For basic Network course related info Here For various : Networking related courses

    You can always start with 1. CCNA [ networking in general from network vendor point of view ] 2. Unix / Linux Networking Basic HTH

    For networking, You can go the CCENT -> CCNA -> CCNA Specialty path.. The new CCENT gives you basically the same knowledge as the Network+, but lays the foundation for delving deeper into the Cisco Cert tracks. Once you get your CCNA, you cna branch out to Voice, Wireless, Security, Routing/Switching, or, like a lot of us, some of each... (R/S, Voice myself)
