Dear Sir, I am BE(mech) guy.I had exposure to electronics field to the extent that I gad taken 2 years Vocational course in Electronics during my 11th and 12th standard education. Also I have completed Japanese Language proficiency Test(JLPT-Level 3) So being a BE(mech) guy would i be able to do CCNA course? More importantly would I get job in IT industry with CCNA course compeletion and that the IT Industry should not ignore me thinking that this BE(mech) guy with CCNA does not have any Hardware or Electronics background? Kindly answer me and give me direction. I would appreciate your suggestions.

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

The CCNA will far outweigh the BE. My CCNA got me here with an AS, and at a pay grade higher than a EE I know with no network experience

*****************************************
BE (Mech) and CCNA is not at all a bad combination, any engineering stream people do well in CCNA and beyond. You can go for it.
