Well, i wont say i'm surprised or not but these are the kinda things you'll need God's intervention for, its similar to a 1st class graduate looking for job. A proper deliverance is needed, i'll advice the guy to go for 3 or 7 days deliverance at MFM.
In reasonable countries you don't need to go for any deliverance to get a decent job with all the qualifications this guy has. Only here in Africa.

So how does a medical person who wants to go into the ICT world benefit from this?

How can I explain this now? smiley

Let's see...

ICT is a field that gives you advantages such as;

1) Another source of income

2) Advantage over your peers who has just their single certificate to show

3) Makes you adapt fully in a world that is gearing towards ICT

There are so many reasons to pick up an ICT skill. The question is why do you feel you want to?

Are you a working medical personnel with any knowledge of IC3 (International core computation)? Then you need to learn it.

Are you a Medical personnel and you don't have good knowledge of how to use Microsoft and other applications extensively? Then you have to learn it.

The reasons are so many to say, so I implore you visit us and we will talk at length. Thanks.

Well you're right sir @ niggi4life...the physical training aspect is more important than bagging the certificates. The trunking ethernet cables, the fishing through walls, the passing through ceilings, the punching of the cables to its different colour codes on the face plate and on the patch panel, the positioning of the network radio to get the appropriate signal on a tower or mast (sometimes you can stay there for more than an hour and the signal strength is not still good enough), the rigging and the likes all these takes time and they are the most important. I have a two year training experience and i'm looking forward to advance my career in another establishment.

Really like your analysis @niggi4life, you're the kind of person i would love to learn more from. Please how can i get in touch with you sir? My email address is emmanueljimoh@gmail.com, phone number is 08064126498. I anticipate your response sir!

Well, it's not as easy as it is been written, likewise the pay.
Nowadays most IT companies do not only rely on your certifications, they want it being practical, like ; what can you really do either in isolation or within a team.

I know lots of peeps here with certifications all over.. go to LinkedIn you will see them flocking around with certs without any experience.

I am a Senior network engineer, it took me years of practices: trial and error to get there. I have a Lab at home where i simulate network scenarios during my off days.

You need devoted time to become an IT professional and then you start seeing the money flowing like water.

As an IT consultant you can't earn lesser than 500K a month except you don't know what you are doing.

God bless!!




Nice one sir!

True...

And to add, all these shouting cisco upandan, CCNA, CCNP etec, all that is just rubbish..you can do that and may not even get a job, clocking 8-5, thats fact. Infact, you most likely wont, because those are certifications even little kids are wielding.

If you want to be useful to yourself, first become a network technician before you metamorphose to a network engineer, if you want. that way, you know everything- in a new construction with a blueprint or floor plans, you can set up your entire data network from access points, comm rooms, cables, racks, switches and all. You can punch down, terminate your RJ 45 on modules and fix them on face plates, install them on walls, where a user will set up his computer. In the equipment, you know exactly where each wire or cable is going, you can tone to locate cables and patch them in, set up everything and genrally do plenty of management in there

To be a network technician, you are basically an electrician- albeit a low voltage one- you can set up data networks from cartons of cables doing cable runs- fishing cables through celings and walls, terminating them on patch panels, installing servers, and switches and installing and mounting racks, doing cable management and all- inshort you can integrate a data centre.

So interms of nomenclature, what are you? You are a low voltage technician/engineer, you are a telecom technician/engineer too (doing voice, video and data), meaning like i said, you can plan and design and install a data network, you can troubleshoot phones (66 and 110 blocks), do Voice over IP, install and configure IP Cameras (be it in shoprite, Next, or traffic cameras).

Knowing this prepares you to be a business man, doing cisco or all those certifications prepares you to be an employee- a big organization must have a network for you to manage, or administer, right? KNowing what i said above makes you confiddent- you can put in for any bid, or tell any developer developing, say- a hotel- 'hey, leave all your low voltage needs to me, i will setup your data network. For a small 50room hotel, you can collect N7m- labor, not materials.

You can put in for any bid- if EFCC are building their 23 storey headquaters, you put in for the bid- imagine running cables on 23 floors, installing access points, all over, communications cabinets on every floor, dropping everything down a main or central equipment room? If you have the capacity, you can collect N600m from there.

The only person competiting with you in Nigeria will be Huawei, but let Huawei take the big jobs of N500m or N1.2b, you will be pretty busy with all the small jobs within your neiborhood of N5m, N10m

How does being CCNA or CCNE help you? Can that help you fish a cat5 cable or fibre, through a hollow wall? or concrete wall for that matter? Or through a ceiling? Or mount a rack? Or install blade servers with hundreds of wires running underneath the floors? You must do all this before you go and start troubleshooting and subnetting and creating subnet masks, no? We are talking practical knowledge here.

And there are certifcations for this- level 1 installer, level II installer, copper, or installer fibre and the likes, then you move to OSP- Outside plant. Where the real big money is- those who run fibre optic cables outside- on poles or underground.

Learn all this, thank me later

Pls sir, how can I be a network technician ?
