To be honest, I started last year July and finished in December. That was only because I was working full time at the same time and even during work, I’d fine down times to log in to Coursera and watch some videos or finish some assignments. So it depends on your circumstance.

I completed this course within a month. I was doing about 6-8 hours a day because I was recently layoff.

I did it in 6 weeks. I invested 5 hours a day to complete the dense weeks. I work full time and have a 3 hour commute. So I went to bed a midnight or 1 am several nights to get it done. So I paid one $49 fee before I completing course.

Hey there, certainly it is very possible provided you are dedicated to set timetables and heavy commitment in completing it. I did it in a month and that is with a work schedule of 8am to 8pm schedule. I did maximize the Saturdays and Sundays i got.

For me;

Course 1, Technical Support Fundamentals: 18 hours
  • I did complete this course in 2 days
Course 2, The Bits and Bytes of Computer Networking: 24 hours
  • This course took me 10 days as i would wanted to grab the fundamentals strongly
Course 3, Operating Systems and You: Becoming a Power User: 24 hours
  • The windows part was good whilst i struggled slightly with Linux. I managed to complete this course in 9 days
Course 4, System Administration and IT Infrastructure Services: 15 hours
  • This took me about 5 days to complete
Course 5, IT Security: Defense against the digital dark arts: 18 hours
  • It basics to intermediate here and I managed to complete it in 3 days

Sure you can. I had completed it in a month. If you are dedicated and passionate about it you can do it in a month. Just try to complete the courses which have 'Peer review assignments'. Review and grading from others take time. So complete those first. Rest you can do it on your own pace.
