Hi: I'm being offered Networking courses on academies here in Madrid but I find the course programmes too extensive for my needs.
I intend to set up a computer technical service in Africa (Equatorial Guinea). A small shop where I can sell computers, repair them, and set up small networks for small companies, perhaps 10 computers maximum.
I know how to set up a small network (peer to peer) using three computers with Windows 7/8, but I intend to learn Client-server networking.
Here's the programme for one of these courses, please give me an opinion:
PART 1: Layer models. TCP. UDP. ipv4 addresses. Ethernet hubs and switches. CISCO device setup. Theory and practice.
PART 2: Network administration Windows Server 2008 to 20012. Theory and practice.
Duration: 75 hours.
I'm thinking of self-studying what I can of part 1 and then attend Part 2 in the academy, which is cheaper. What do you think? Do I need to know all that stuff in part 1?.
Thanks for attending my post.
