So what do I do for training?

Yes, I realize, it’s 12:30 at night, typically not the first time that you sit and ask yourself, “What should I do for a training course?”
Well, I’m thinking that either I will go and take another in class Cisco course (BCRAN) or a SANS course at SANS Washington DC 2005. Any thoughts?

  1. Wow, you get actual technical training? Amazing… I had “Problem Solving Through Synergy” this week. Whatever you go for, have fun!

  2. Joe, the firm for which I am a consultant gives us 40 hours a year of time to take for training and $2,500 for certification courses. Or you can get up to $5,000 for college tuition. Debating what to do…

  3. Again, wow. We’re required to get 40 hours of training, but approval for the tech training is rather difficult to get. So we end up in November/December taking “Office Yoga” and “Navigating Change” (the irony of which is that our company *doesn’t* change – I write about 60% of my code in IBM Series/1 Assembler, circa 1979 – I feel *so* marketable right now). Being able to trade out for college tuition would be extremely nice, seeing how I, er, partied out of Clemson, and I’ve got a family now, and probably won’t make it back to finish up without some sort of outside influence. We get 1/2 tuition reimbursement, but that’s still a chunk of money… Ah well, my supervisor says she’s trying to arrange a couple of technical classes for us, so I guess we’ll see how that goes. Still needing another 35 hours this year : /

  4. It’s still a toss up. There’s actually a course out there that deals with one of the technologies I use for work, however both bootcamps are located out in Anaheim, CA and I just don’t know if I could do that to myself 😉

    There is an interesting three day Wireless Auditing class that the SANS Institute is putting on in August that I’m thinking about as well. First things first though, finishing out the CCNA and getting registered for classes at George Mason University.
