Network + versus CCNA

Some collegues who are software proficient want to learn the basics of networking.   We are mostly a Cisco shop, but I'm thinking the CCNA is too detailed for part-time learning.   Is Network+   a better course for beginners?

Network+ will give them a very good understanding of the basics, and it will enable them to better understand how everything ties together.

The CCNA would be the next level, where you take that understanding of how the network works, and apply it to some basic to mid-level routing and switching.

Thanks Matt, that's kinda what I thought, but I have never taken a Network+ course.
Good info.

CompTIA Network+ is a reputable introduction to networking.  It does not have the resume' weight that a CCNA has but is much more accessible.

I have both certifications.  Candidly, they are not even on the same par (as far as difficulty).
