Curtis Schongalla A+, Network+, Security+, MCSA, & CCNP


CCNA Certified

Today I passed the CCNA exam. It was a lot of work and required more studying and practice than any of the previous exams I have taken, but it was worth it and I am excited to have passed the exam. I learned a lot of new things along the way and I hope to be able to apply them in my new position as the Network Systems Administrator at WAMU. Up until now most of my studies and experience have focused on Systems Administration tasks so this is my first real networking certification. The Network+ is really more of an entry level certification.

Next I will be setting up another ESXi lab and working on upgrading my MCSA to MCITP:SA, which hopefully will not take too long  as I only would need to take a single exam upgrade the certification. The MCITP:SA covers Windows Server 2008, whereas the MCSA focuses mainly on Server 2003. After that I plan on venturing back into the networking world and working on a CCNA specialization like security.
