Recently I've been tasked with training a colleague in the ways of the networker. The goal is to take him from a relatively modest background in help desk and systems administration to CCNA level within a couple months, and perhaps advance to CCNP level at some point in the future. While I have no doubt we can accomplish this, it got me wondering what structured training plans readers have used in their own workplaces.
I wonder because, aside from textbooks and documentation, I have little formal material on which to base classes. I do have access to Jeremy Cioara's excellent CBT Nuggets videos and a number of great books, but these are better-suited for self-study. Also, since I'm going to be helping out one person already I figured I'd try and expand my efforts to include a few of the other junior staff I work with. I'd like to setup weekly classes but would like some input before I attempt to develop a lesson plan. Can anyone share an approach they've taken in a similar situation?
