Wher to find a course similar to this one?

Hi,
I'm a Mathematics teacher with a BSC in Mathematics and I was looking to switch my current career to a Cisco network administrator (with great knowledge also on administering Microsoft Windows Server). I searched the internet and found this 1-year study in Australia labeled "Graduate Diploma of Networking"http://courses.swinburne.edu.au/Courses/Graduate-Diploma-of-Science-%28Network-Systems%29-S059/postgrad#aboutthecourse


which suits me almost perfectly but my main problem is the cost of accommodation in Australia is pretty expensive for me since 1 AUD = 1/5 1 unit of my currency (even if I'm going to use a hostel).

Is there any closer study to the aforementioned one, in Switzerland, in English, that I can join? (because my aunt is a Swiss citizen living in Geneva and she offered me the accommodation, thus relieving me from a great financial stress).

Thanks a lot in advance

In two years I think it's OK to change the direction of your life, no? That other post was from 2009. I looked too.

Ok, now to help the OP. I found these two learning centers with Cisco courses in Geneva. I don't know if they have the exact class you want though. Google for some reviews. I'm sure some are better than others.

What about online study is that an option?

OK, so I'll also be positive - what qualification is the OP seeking?

Are they looking for Cisco certification, or "something"? What is that "something"?

Slightly less than 2.5s with google found this, which I would have thought to be very relevant, especially with a cost-sensitive person who sees Ozz as expensive. Aber, aber...

I think you are still sleepy. lol.

The OP has family in GVA. That means free food, housing & entertainment. It could also mean free use of the family car, pocket money, etc. depending on the family of course. Sounds like a good deal to me!

Oh, I'm always sleepy - that's just the way I am.

So when I sleepily read something like "looking to switch my current career to a Cisco network administrator", I sleepily think that it would be useful to know what sleepy Cisco certification the other sleepy person might think is appropriate to pursuing their sleepy goal(s), otherwise sleepy wee me might think there were other sleepy wee hidden agendas hiding there behind sleepy wee terminological inexactitudes.

The only sleepy thing the sleepy OP mentioned was having a sleepy aunt in sleepy geneva, and that therefore his/her sleepy acccomodation costs would be sleepily covered - anything else would be pure sleepy conjecture...


btw since I'm currently working to gmt-8 and you're gmt-3 so my time is 11pm-ish to your 3am, I wonder who's really the sleepy one, given that I'm the one who's off for a night's sleep soon ?

Plz, 3am is early for Buenos Aires! You seem to know more about the career he is looking into, so go on, give the kid some realistic suggestions.

Re: Wher to find a course similar to this one?

saying the obvious: If the OP is looking for a cost efficient education as life n Australia is expensive - then Switzerland is probably the wrong place to look. "Cisco certified" is a badge and hardly any employer would look where the course took place. I'd bet that the cheapest courses in English are probably in India.
