Beyond CCNA: Into the Server Room with Jeremy Cioara



Start your free week with CBT Nuggets. https://cbt.gg/2LZhF9F

In this video, Jeremy Cioara covers the fastest and most effective ways to learn the technical, applied knowledge needed for IT careers. There is a chasm with institutional knowledge from college and certifying courses on one side and real-life ability on the other — here’s how to bridge it.

There are two worlds: the world of ideas, and the world of doing, and it’s unwise to live exclusively in only one of those worlds. Institutional knowledge and training that you can get from college courses and certification exams are closer to the world of ideas. Meanwhile, the cables, switches, routers and network devices you need to do your job are all closer to the world of doing. This recorded webinar features Jeremy’s suggestions for bridging the two worlds in order to maximize your knowledge as well as your abilities. The IT Expertise series features opportunities to learn about concepts and get practical understanding of them — introducing a series of videos that show, first-hand, the process of running and installing cabling, creating campus networks, implementing wireless and more.

    16:20 i really had chills and goosebumps; coming from Cameroon and that extends to Africa in general ; there exist soo much FREE applications/technologies/cheap Raspberry pi ; projects / old PC which CAN ACCOMPLISH so many things!! I remember going to main hospital in my town and see doctors running around to deliver news and reports, by hand and mouth!! Men, a simple opensource linux voip server with raspi can save lives. Guess what ? Every year, you hear of ENGINEERS graduating in the country. That goes across the board; terrible bridges across a 20feet or 6 meters stream collapses and people die but Structural engineers graduate with flying colors but cant ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING.

    This is absolutely dead on. This is how I approached college as well, having no idea whether to choose the cisco or Microsoft route. Wish these videos were around then.

    is this like a recurring thing for IT people to hate school until they're older? lol. I too had a similar story to yours, hated HS, parents and counselors were trying to find anything to get me to go to class in college, but I just wasn't feeling it — i just wanted to program mods for games & build web sites.. Took me six years to go back, but when I did I double majored in marketing & economics, and now have a great job where I am exploring computer technology I depend on every day to do my job. I write code, i work on racks, and recently i've started wondering if I need the certifications or not, as currently, it is not my every day type roll — my primary responsibility is the overseeing the execution of all marketing activities involving digital channels.

    Is there a timeline for the release dates of the expertise series?

    Good points, I love the idea of practical education!
    Things like setting up a VPN for outside access, and attaching NAS and using it as a music streaming service, might be redundant these days but is both harder and easier than it sounds and can be analogous to business support objectives.
    Other things I like to do is play with business tools, it is easy and relatively inexpensive to set up a basic website with hosting, connect it to an Office 365 E3 trial, update DNS to support your own domain. Want another challenge? Try setting up Exchange Server mailboxes on VMware, then migrate them to your new Office 365 environment. Don't worry if it goes wrong, that is what makes stuff stick, but if you can show this to potential employers they should see your potential.

    Thanks Jeremy for this video.
    I actually agree with all said on your video. I had no Networking experience until I joined the military and my team chief introduced me to the military network, routing protocols, Vlans, switching and all the great stuff that routing and switching have to offer. A little after learning this I began getting acquainted and more comfortable with networking, that I started acquiring equipment for my home lab in order to practice and strengthen my weaknesses. I ended up creating a full network at my home and taking this experience back to my unit and providing this knowledge to my soldiers. Now I'm a civilian working for the military as a contractor occupying the position of Network Administrator and implementing my knowledge at this organization. The person that was in this position had 17 years and never upgraded equipment or the network infrastructure, so now that has been my task for the last few months. That is why I have to agree with 1. Non- Technical Objectives and 2. Use your Home.

    I really enjoy Jeremy's trainings. This topic is incredibly relevant. I have seen so many certified IT professionals with no real-world experience and no real understanding of how all the various systems in the IT realm interact and function together.
