An individual can't afford their training.
So I'm studying for Junipers security track and was about to pull the trigger on their Junos Genius program ($250 - 12 month very reasonable) thinking it gives complete access to their on-demand catalog.
Boy was I wrong.
An on-demand course for an entry level certificate like the JNCIS-SEC is $4,000!
That's just a smidge unreasonable. Unless your employer is paying for this, there's no way in hell people are buying this on their own.
If we compare Junipers learning resources to Cisco, they stand no chance. One can go and buy official and third party books to study Cisco's courseware. With Juniper, they don't even have a hardcover on Amazon.
Junos offers amazing functionality. It's a shame that their locking everyone out of learning it. Oh, and that Genius program for $250 a year? It's for taking practice tests...
EDIT (In addition)
When starting out in this industry you learn Cisco.
If you want the CCNA (the de-facto entry level networking certificate) you can buy the hardcover for less than $50.00 off of Amazon.
This is my main gripe with Juniper. They have a similar certification program that directly matches Cisco in the naming convention yet they don't have the training or resources to back it up at a reasonable price structure.
Juniper: to have more people knowledge of your product is never a bad thing. Please make it more accessible and affordable.
