Back to School

August 23, 2011 - 0 Comments

As summer rolls into fall, my kids are heading back to school.  It’s always an interesting transition but this year even more so with my daughter going away to college for the first time.   This has brought back a flood of memories from my own college education experiences. 

I have always had a passion for education and have a strong belief in continous learning. 

Today, so much is available on the web, through social media websites, and online video

In the world of technology and government, there is so much more to learn every day.  New technologies: cloud,  cybersecurity and virtualization, new delivery methods: virtual classrooms, online video, and collaboration, and new government requirements and certifications.

I recently came  across some useful learning resources including the Cisco CCNP Security Certification courseware and VMware/Cisco  network considerations for desktop virtualization.    

See below.   

The new Cisco CCNP Security Certification courseware meets the4013 training standard for Federal Curriculum Standards.  

The curriculum from Cisco helps plan, implement, verify and troubleshoot local and wide-area enterprise networks and work collaboratively with specialists on advanced security, voice, wireless and video solutions.

You can also learn move about Virtualization at VMworld next week. 

Where do you get your daily dose of education?  What is your preference?  Traditional classroom, online, industry event, combined?
