Easy online study courses to obtain certs

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2020-04-08
So unfortunately because of the situation at hand I have been furloughed and already going stir crazy.   I've decided to try to switch my focus from Microsoft to Cisco.   I was wondering since I am at home right now if anyone could recommend some good online courses I can start off with to look at a CCNA.   I need to keep myself going and would like to cert track as much as possible to spend some time.   I don'`````````````````t know if this can be done sitting at home and learning without a firewall or router but I figured I would ask if anyone has tried this and had success.   ```````````````````````````````````````````If its too much trouble thats fine I am just looking to expand my learning.

The other possibility would be to try and look at Microsoft server 2019 or 2016 MCSE.   I am thinking it may be easier doing that.   Again this would have to be done from home so I would need some good tools.   Not sure if reading a book will work I will probably need access to virtual environments.    As always the assistance is appreciated.   I am hoping this furlough only lasts a month or so.  

THanks in advance.

udemy is offering some free online courses at the moment
if you are interested in networking, Cisco CCNA would be a good start that would provide you with lot of knowledge and understanding, definitely digging up on specific topics on google would also expand your knowledge
best of luck
