Having moved into an Engineer position, and work requirements really making Juniper and some Layer 2 technologies being more important for the time being, I'm going to back off the CCNP for a bit, and focus more on my overall Network engineering knowledge and education.
That said, I'm going to give a non-shameless plug again to www.coursera.org
I am starting the Rice University "An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python" again.
Class started Oct 6th, but I believe they may still be taking sign-ups.
One can now pay $49.99 and get a certificate from Rice University stating that you have taken the course.
I believe I could likely have it paid from our training fund at work, so I may do that.
