Here we have all of our career paths listed. But let's go up to the difficulty
01:07
and select beginner, intermediate or advanced.
01:11
I'm gonna go ahead and select beginner. Do we have a number of career paths here on and they're all going to cover slightly different content.
01:19
So again, depending on what work role that you're trying to go into,
01:23
they will differ

01:48
Each one can cover different certifications, things like that.
01:53
So again, kind of a really most entry level information security fundamentals, kind of a step up from there, has become a system administrator
02:01
and then become a network engineer, and we still find a number of individuals that can jump in at an entry level and go right into something like become a network engineer, really? Just depends on what you're comfortable with.
02:13
All right, at the top. I'm going to now sort by intermediate.
02:15
