                            [body] => Cisco Certification Guide: Overview and Career PathsEd Tittel and Mary KyleUpdated Apr 04, 2019Cisco Systems Inc. specializes in networking and communications products and services. The company is probably best known for its business routing and switching products, which direct data, voice, and video traffic across networks around the world. However, Cisco also offers storage networking, applications for unified communications, telepresence and collaboration (WebEx), and an array of services from simple product support to complete solutions for data centers and cloud management.To ensure that IT professionals have the skills and knowledge necessary to support Cisco products and solve customers' technology problems on many fronts, the Cisco Career Certification program is all-embracing. That is, it begins at the entry level, then advances to associate, professional, and expert levels, and (in some certification areas) caps things off at the architect level.Each level offers one or more credentials. Obtaining a credential usually involves passing one or more certification exams. Most Cisco exams are delivered by Pearson VUE. For higher-level credentials, candidates must also prove they meet necessary prerequisites. The higher the level of certification, the more credentials and prerequisites one needs to meet those requirements.Cisco certification program overview. Certifications within Cisco's portfolio include the following credentials:Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT)Cisco Certified Technician (CCT)Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA)Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA)Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP)Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP)Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE)Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE)Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr)There are many certifications and paths one can take in Cisco's career program. That said, its two main paths cover network operation and network design. A typical Cisco networking certification ladder begins with the entry-level CCENT credential, moves up to the CCNA, onto the CCNP and culminates with the CCIE. The design-oriented might instead consider starting with the CCENT, moving up to the CCDA, then the professional-level CCDP, followed by the CCDE, and finish the program with the CCAr.The Cisco Career Certification program also includes a number of specializations. These certifications acknowledge a professional's skills in a specific Cisco technology, such as data center application services, voicemail and messaging or rich media. Cisco specializations are organized into two primary categories: one targeting technical specialists and another targeting digital transformation specialists. Between these two categories, there are currently 15 specializations among which IT pros can choose.The Technical Specialist category includes specializations across six subcategories:CollaborationData Center (FlexPod)Network ProgrammabilityOperating System SoftwareService ProviderInternet of things (IoT)Digital Transformation Specialists includes credentials geared to Business Architecture and Customer Success.Achieving a specialist credential generally requires passing one or two exams. Some credentials also impose prerequisites.Entry-, associate- and professional-level credentials are valid for three years, CCIE and specialist certifications are valid for two years and the CCAr is valid for five years. To keep certifications current, Cisco professionals need to recertify by passing a recertification exam or advancing to a higher level in Cisco's certification hierarchy.Cisco's entry-level certifications. Cisco has two entry-level credentials: the Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) and the Cisco Certified Technician (CCT). No prerequisites are needed to obtain either the CCENT or CCT credential, and candidates must pass a single exam to earn each credential.CCENT certified professionals install, maintain and troubleshoot small networks or a branch of an enterprise network, and implement basic network security. The CCENT credential is a prerequisite for some associate-level CCNA solution track credentials and the CCDA.CCTs work onsite at customer locations, diagnosing issues and repairing or replacing network-related equipment. A CCT can choose one of several specialty tracks, which currently includes Data Center and Routing and Switching.CertificationExamsNumber of QuestionsTime to CompleteCCENT100-105 ICND145-5590 minutesCCT Data Center010-151 DCTECH65-7590 minutesCCT Routing & Switching640-692 RSTECH60-7090 minutesLearn more about Cisco ICND1 from UdemyLearn more about CCIE Routing & Switching from UdemyCisco's associate-Level Certifications. Cisco's associate-level certifications include the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) and the Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA). One must pass one or two certification exams to achieve a CCNA or CCDA credential, depending on the track you choose.The CCNA recognizes basic skills in installing, supporting, and troubleshooting wired and/or wireless networks. One can choose from several tracks, including Cloud, Collaboration, Cyber Ops, Data Center, Industrial, Routing and Switching, Security, Service Provider and Wireless. The CCNA is a prerequisite for the professional-level CCNP certification. Prerequisites for the CCNA vary depending on the solution track chosen as do the number of required exams. All solution tracks require either one or two exams.Cisco created the CCDA to identify individuals who can design basic wired and wireless networks, and incorporate security and voice solutions. The CCDA is a prerequisite for the CCDP certification. To obtain the CCDA, candidates must possess either a valid CCENT, CCNA Routing and Switching (or any CCIE certification), and pass a single additional exam.CertificationExamsNumber of QuestionsTime to CompleteCCDA200-310 DESGN55-6575 minutesCCNA Cloud210-451 CLDFND55-6590 minutes210-455 CLDADM55-6590 minutesCCNA Collaboration210-060 CICD55-6575 minutes210-065 CIVND55-6575 minutesCCNA Cyber Ops210-250 SECFND55-6090 minutes210-255 SECOPS60-7090 minutesCCNA Data Center200-150 DCICN55-6590 minutes200-155 DCICT65-75120 minutesCCNA Industrial200-601 IMINS265-7590 minutesCCNA Routing and Switching**200-125 CCNA60-7090 minutes100-105 ICND145-5590 minutes200-105 ICND255-6590 minutesCCNA Security210-260 IINS60-7090 minutesCCNA Service Provider640-875 SPNGN165-7590 minutes640-878 SPNGN265-7590 minutesCCNA Wireless200-355 WIFUND60-7090 minutes**Candidates for the CCNA Routing and Switching may take exam 200-125 OR exam 100-105 plus 200-105.Learn more about Cisco CCDA from UdemyLearn more about Cisco CCNA Cyber Ops UdemyLearn more about iPexpert's CCNA DCICN from UdemyCisco's professional-level certifications. Cisco's professional-level credentials include two main programs: the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) and the Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP). To obtain the CCDP, one must pass three certification exams and possess both the CCDA and CCNA Routing and Switching credentials or any Cisco CCIE or CCDE certification.All CCNP solution tracks, except Routing and Switching, require candidates to pass four exams. Only three exams are required for the CCNP: Routing and Switching credential. Prerequisites for all CCNP solution tracks include either the lower-level CCNA credential or any CCIE credential. The CCNP: Service Provider credential also accepts the Cisco Certified Internet Professional (CCIP) credential as a prerequisite (which retired in 2012).The CCNP credential recognizes professionals who plan, deploy, and troubleshoot local networks and wide area networks. The CCNP tracks are the same as those for the CCNA, except for Industrial and Cyber Ops, which are not offered in the CCNP track. The CCNP is recommended to climb up to the next step on the cert ladder – the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert.The CCDP identifies proficiency in designing and deploying scalable networks and multilayer-switched networks. From the CCDP, you can move on to the Cisco Certified Design Expert.CertificationExamsNumber of QuestionsTime to CompleteCCDP300-101 ROUTE45-65120 minutes300-115 SWITCH30-40120 minutes300-320 ARCH60-7075 minutesCCNP Cloud300-460 CLDINF55-6590 minutes300-465 CLDDES55-6590 minutes300-470 CLDAUT55-6590 minutes300-475 CLDACI55-6590 minutesCCNP Collaboration300-070 CIPTV165-7575 minutes300-075 CIPTV250-6075 minutes300-080 CTCOLLAB55-6575 minutes300-085 CAPPS55-6575 minutesCCNP Data Center**300-175 DCUCI55-6590 minutes300-165 DCII55-6590 minutes300-170 DCVAI55-6590 minutes300-160 DCID55-6590 minutes300-180 DCIT70-8090 minutesCCNP Routing and Switching300-101 ROUTE45-65120 minutes300-115 SWITCH30-40120 minutes300-135 TSHOOT15-25120 minutesCCNP Security300-208 SISAS55-6590 minutes300-206 SENSS65-7590 minutes300-209 SIMOS65-7590 minutes300-210 SITCS65-7590 minutesCCNP Service Provider642-883 SPROUTE65-7590 minutes642-885 SPADVROUTE65-7590 minutes642-887 SPCORE65-7590 minutes642-889 SPEDGE65-7590 minutesCCNP Wireless300-360 WIDESIGN55-6590 minutes300-365 WIDEPLOY55-6590 minutes300-370 WITSHOOT55-6590 minutes300-375 WISECURE55-6590 minutes**CCNP Data Center may take either the 300-160 or 300-180 exam.Cisco's expert-level certifications. Cisco's expert-level credentials embrace two primary certifications: the coveted Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) and the Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE). Neither certification imposes prerequisites, but one must pass a written exam and a rigorous practical exam to earn either of these credentials.Beginning in July 2016, Cisco updated its expert-level exams to include an evolving technologies domain. This new domain targets cloud, network programmability and the IoT, and it accounts for 10 percent of the total exam score. Cisco may change the topics included in this domain to reflect emerging technologies as they reach strong enough commercial interest, potential and presence to make them examworthy. The company describes this mechanism as a way to help future-proof its certifications so that employers may assume that those who hold current credentials are also up to speed on important new networking technologies.For many network-track professionals, achieving the CCIE is the highlight of their careers. A CCIE has expert technical skills and knowledge of Cisco network products and solutions in one of the CCIE technical tracks, which currently include Collaboration, Data Center, Routing and Switching, Security, Service Provider, and Wireless.The CCDE identifies experts who design infrastructure solutions for large enterprise environments, which include technological, operational, business and budget aspects of a project.Cisco's architect-level certifications. For persons seeking positions such as network architect or data center architect, a smart move is to acquire the Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) certification. The CCAr is like the Ph.D. of the Cisco Career Certification program – it's the highest level of certification that Cisco offers. This credential validates the skills of a senior network infrastructure architect, someone who can plan and design IT infrastructures based on business strategies. Many people consider the CCAr the most difficult tech certification to achieve.To earn the CCDE certification, you must design a network solution to implement an assigned strategy; then, you must appear before a Cisco-appointed panel to explain and defend that solution.Related jobs and careers. Whether you're following a network operations or network design career path, Cisco certifications are uniquely positioned to assist IT professionals as they prepare to fulfill various Cisco-related career roles. Regardless of your chosen career path, job opportunities are plentiful for skilled Cisco professionals. A simple search for Cisco CCNA professionals on two popular job boards – SimplyHired and Indeed – yielded between 7,500 and 9,500 job postings each.Job opportunities vary by factors, such as experience and whether you're focused on network operations or network design.

Going Down The CCNA Career Path. The CCNA is a great entry point for individuals interested in operating computer networks. Even if you aren’t working with Cisco gear most of the time, you’ll almost certainly come into touch with it, and they’re frequently in the majority. Companies often demand certification; therefore, you may not be able to fill a position unless you have the appropriate industry credential. It’s still useful when applying for a position, even if it isn’t necessary. Even though there will be a more significant number of CCNA-level professionals on the market, mainly due to Cisco Networking Academy’s training, not everyone gets the credential. The CCNA, on the other hand, is strongly advised to grasp the basics before moving on (for example, how to achieve the CCNP or even the CCIE level). Although this isn’t a formal requirement for the CCNP level, Cisco advises that you have considerable expertise before taking professional-level tests. If you’ve already completed a lot of regularity in Cisco’s test system, it’s easier to pass certification exams. Is The CCNA Certification Worth It? The most frequent answer is that Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is definitely worth it. It’s an acronym for Cisco Certified Network Associate, and it’s the entrance point to the company’s certification program. The name of the examination that must be passed to obtain CCNA is Creating and Maintaining Cisco Solutions. The CCNA was revised in 2020, as have most Cisco certifications.

These include routing and switching technologies, WANs (wide area networks) and wireless networks, security, and other crucial networking topics, including programmability and automation. You only need to pass one exam in this new version. The CCNA is a Cisco-sponsored credential. This company produces a range of network equipment and standards and protocols associated with networks and has been in operation for almost 30 years. They’ve already established a strong brand and dominated the industry in network routing and switching for a long time (since 1984). The CCNA certification used to be available in two ways: a difficult exam or two separate tests. This new version has only one test, which is more user-friendly and transparent. After your fundamental certificate, you might go down several alternative pathways (security, design, voice, wireless, and so on), but it was still at the CCNA level. There is only one curriculum and at least one exam for the associate level now. You may take extra courses on the CCNP level if you wish to have a greater specific knowledge of certain subjects. This new approach aims to make certification choices clearer and easier for network engineers who have not yet achieved CCENT. Second, they want software developers to communicate and collaborate more efficiently with network engineers who hold CCNA credentials. As technology advances, network engineers will require additional abilities, and the new CCNA curriculum addresses that. Recent Changes to the CCNA Series. As of February 24, 2020, Cisco has made the CCNA easier and more comprehensive at the same time. Candidates who wish to work as Cisco network experts only have to pass one exam: the Cisco Certified Network Associate (200-301 CCNA). It’s designed to evaluate a candidate’s technical understanding and competence in a broad range of abilities and expertise. These include security, networking fundamentals, programmability, and automation. The Cisco CCNA certification is available to anybody, regardless of experience, and the exam is easy enough for any candidate. However, Cisco advises that applicants have a minimum of a year of expertise in Cisco solutions and a basic understanding of IP addressing. They should also be able to explain fundamental networking concepts. The following certifications have been discontinued as of February 2020, owing to Cisco’s new policies: CCNA Routing and SwitchingCCNA SecurityCCNA Data CenterCCNA Service ProviderCCNA CollaborationCCNA CloudCCNA IndustrialCCNA Wireless What Is Included In the New Cisco CCNA Examination? The new CCNA credential: Cisco’s 200-301 exam has seen a significant change in the curriculum. Cisco has added wireless networking, security, and network automation to the curriculum to keep up with the ever-changing IT development. This revised curriculum is meant to help IT professionals deal with increasingly tech-oriented job demands in an ever more technology-savvy world. The Cisco 200-301 certification exam is a 120-minute multiple-choice test that may be taken in either English or Japanese. It contains the following components: IP connectivity (25%): The exam will evaluate your ability to generate, validate, and troubleshoot basic routing using a variety of routing protocols, including static IP/VPN/DMZ routing. It will include topics such as BGP, vRouter, dynamic routing protocols (RIPv1 and RIPv2), OSPF V3, EIGRP vNext, PBR, redistribution (of IGPs into EIGRP and RIP, of static routes into OSPF), policy-based path control (PBR).Network access (20%): Students will also be evaluated on their grasp of the following topics: VLANs, Interswitch connectivity, Layer 2 discovery protocols, and EtherChannel; Spanning Tree Protocol operations; Wireless LAN architecture, deployment methods, physical WLAN components used in Cisco network devices, AP and WLC management access connections.Network fundamentals (20%): Understanding the network architecture is critical for detecting vulnerabilities. Firewalls, intrusion prevention systems (IPSs), and authentication technologies are all examples of endpoint devices that may be utilized to secure data in transit or at rest. Firewalls, IPSs, and other security appliances provide varying amounts of cyber-security risks through various physical connections and media connectivity as well as IP address assignment. Although focusing on static network features may be sufficient for some organizations, many others face complex, non-routine IP configuration problems. When assessing data security risks, it’s essential to examine network configurations like (IP fragmentation), routing tables, MTU, and simple parameters such as IP addresses and port numbers.Security fundamentals (15%): Authentication, access control, data center security policies, physical access controls, password rules, access control lists, Layer 2 security features, wireless transmission protocols are just a few of the crucial security levels that IT professionals utilize to identify assets and users.IP services (10%): Learn and test the components of a VPN connection, such as finding public DNS servers to resolve hostnames with incorrect or no addresses; understanding NTP, NAT, and NTP configuration; inspecting DHCP, DNS, SNMP, and Syslog functionality; examining per-hop behavior; using SSH; TFTP/FTP description.Automation and programmability (10%): This book will teach you how to compare traditional networks with controller-based ones, provide automation suggestions, and interpret JSON data to get the most out of your switching systems. Obtaining a job is not difficult. You simply must meet specific criteria to an employer and be hired. It’s also proof of your networking skills for the position since you completed the certifications. The CCNA credential is valid worldwide for three years after it has been earned, which means it’s accepted everywhere. You may renew your CCNA certification by taking another CCN exam or obtaining any of the higher-level professional credentials (CCNP). The CCNA certification is one of the most popular CISCO certifications, and it does not require any prior knowledge. It will give you a solid base for your network administration expertise.

                            [body] => The Ultimate Guide to Cisco Certifications – Overview & Career Paths May 10, 2018 by Preetam Kaushik Share: Cisco Systems is arguably most known for its business routing and switching products that can handle direct data, voice and video traffic across networks around the globe. However, the company also deals in storage networking, unified communications applications, telepresence and collaboration, and many other services ranging from basic product support to complete data center solutions and cloud management. The company offers some of the most coveted certifications in the industry, including certifications for every level of IT practitioner: entry-level, intermediate, specialist or even expert-level credentials. Cisco understands IT professionals need to stay up to date when it comes to mastering the skills necessary to support its products and solve customers’ technology queries at all times. This is why the Cisco Career Certification program commences at the entry level, then evolves to associate, professional and expert levels, and for particular certifications, takes you further up to the architect level. Each certification level offers one or more credentials, and getting one of those credentials usually involves clearing one or more exams. To earn higher-level credentials, you need to prove you have cleared some prerequisite levels. As the certification level goes higher, you need to have more credentials and prerequisites. The Cisco certification programs include the following levels: Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP) Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE) Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) Although there are multiple certifications and paths you can choose to undertake in Cisco’s career program, the two primary paths are Network Design and Network Operation. Your typical network operation certification road map starts at the entry level with the CCENT credential. Next up is the CCNA, then the CCNP and, finally, the CCIE. If your goal is expertise in network design, then you might want to move to CCDA after earning your CCNA. Next, you could earn the more professional-level CCDP, followed by CCDE and later, the CCAr. The certification program at Cisco also offers a wide range of specializations. These are mainly designed to vouch for a professional’s skills in specific Cisco technologies, like rich media, data center application service, messaging or voicemail. All in all, there are roughly about twenty categories to choose from. Specialist credentials require you to pass one or more exams. And some of these also require prerequisites. Entry-Level Cisco Certifications There are two entry-level credentials at Cisco: Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) As the names suggest, obtaining the CCENT or CCT requires no prerequisites, and entrants are required to pass a single certification exam for each credential. A CCENT-certified professional installs, maintains and troubleshoots small networks or a branch of an enterprise network. Implementing basic network security is also a part of the job. This certification is also a prerequisite for associate-level credentials, like the CCNA and CCDA. On the other hand, a CCT-certified professional primarily works onsite wherever the customers are located, figuring out issues related to network-related gear and how to repair or replace them. Post-CCT, a professional can choose any of the network operation specializations like Routing and Switching or Data Center. Associate-Level Cisco Certifications Cisco’s associate-level certifications include: Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) Depending on the path you choose, you need to pass one or two certification exams to obtain a CCNA or CCDA. CCNA recognizes your basic skills in installing, maintaining and troubleshooting wired and/or wireless networks. Specialization options include: Cloud Collaboration Cyber Ops Data Center Industrial Routing and Switching Security Service Provider Wireless CCNA is also a prerequisite for the professional-level CCNP certification. Prerequisites and the number of required exams depend on which solution track you choose. All solution tracks require one or more exams. CCDA identifies individuals who can design simple wired and wireless networks, and incorporate voice and security solutions in them. It is a prerequisite for the CCDP certification. To achieve the CCDA, a person must possess either a valid CCENT, CCNA Routing and Switching, or any CCIE certification, and pass a single additional certification exam. Professional-Level Cisco Certifications Professional-level Cisco certifications include: Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP) To obtain the CCDP, you need to pass three certification exams and possess both CCDA and CCNA Routing and Switching credentials, or any Cisco CCIE certification. Barring Routing and Switching, all CCNP solution tracks require you to pass four exams, while only three are required for the CCNP: Routing and Switching credential. CCNP recognizes those who plan, deploy and troubleshoot local networks and wide area networks. CCNP tracks are the same as those for the CCNA, with the exception being Industrial and Cyber Ops, which are not part of the CCNP. CCNP is recommended for climbing the next step in the certification ladder — the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE). CCDP recognizes skills in designing and deploying scalable and multilayer-switched networks. From the CCDP, you can move on to the Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE). Expert-Level Cisco Certifications This level includes two main certifications: Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE) As of July 2016, Cisco’s expert-level exams include an evolving technologies domain that targets Cloud, network programmability and the Internet of Things (IoT). This section accounts for 10% of the total exam score. Achieving the CCIE is a career highlight for most network professionals. A CCIE has master-level technical knowledge of Cisco network products and solutions. Subsequently, CCDE identifies experts who design network infrastructure for large enterprise environments, which often include technological, operational, business and budget aspects of any given project within that environment. Architect-Level Cisco Certifications The Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) certification is perfect for those seeking key positions like network or data center architect. If you were to draw comparisons with traditional academia, a CCAr is like the PhD of the career program at Cisco. Many consider it one of the most difficult certifications to achieve. Maintaining Cisco Certification One of the most important things you need to know about these certifications is they are not valid forever. As the IT scene constantly evolves, certified professionals need to constantly stay abreast of all the new innovations in their respective fields. While the entry, associate and professional-level credentials are valid for three years, specialist certifications and the CCIE are each valid for two years. The CCAr is valid for five years. Certified Cisco professionals need to clear a recertification exam after these time periods to maintain certification or move on to the next level in the program hierarchy.

The board review then costs an additional $11,250. The total cost of exams for the CCAr is $15,000.Transitioning to the New Cisco Certifications. Cisco retired many certifications February 24, 2020. If you didn't finish your CCNP or CCIE prior to that deadline, you may receive the corresponding new certification. However, anyone partially done with CCENT or CCNA on that date will have to take the new exam.Here's how certifications migrated from the old program to the new program by certification level.What Happens to Your CCENT?If you had your CCENT prior to the February 2020 deadline, then you'll need to take the new exam to earn your CCNA certification.What Happens to Your CCNA?If you earned any CCNA (other than CCNA – CyberOps*) prior to the February deadline, then you received the new CCNA. If not, then you'll need to take the new exam. There has been no change to the CCNA – CyberOps certification.What Happens to Your CCNP?Because it used to require three or four exams to earn the former CCNP certification, Cisco has developed a series of migration tools to help you determine how to move forward with your certifications:CCDP Migration ToolCCNP Data Center Migration ToolCCNP Cloud Migration ToolCCNP Collaboration Migration ToolCCNP Routing and Switching Migration ToolCCNP Security Migration ToolCCNP Service Provider Migration ToolCCNP Wireless Migration ToolWhat Happens to Your CCIE?The CCIE migration path is the most straightforward. If you already had your CCIE R&S, then it was replaced by the CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure certification. The other certifications still map to the post-February 23 certifications.Do Cisco Certifications Expire?Currently, Cisco certifications expire in three or five years. Network architects must recertify their CCAr every five years. Cisco outlines different recertification requirements for each certification level.How to Recertify a Cisco Certification. CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE certifications must be recertified every three years. Cisco requires that networking professionals with CCNA or CCNP pass one exam from any CCNA, CCNP, CCIE, or specialist tracks.CCIEs have two options to recertify — continuing education or passing another CCIE exam. The Cisco Continuing Education Program has assigned point values for a number of recertification activities. Most continuing education options are training courses, but there are also Cisco Live sessions and even content authoring opportunities.The CCAr certification must be recertified every five years. Unlike the CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE certifications, the CCAr is a service-based recertification program. Certified Cisco Architects must create or refine exam content, or judge either one or two CCAr candidates. Architects can judge one successful CCAr candidate or two unsuccessful candidates.Cisco Certification Career & Salary Information. An IT professional who holds a CCNA can earn anywhere between $40,643 and $124,889, according to Payscale.com. There are a number of factors that play into salaries including professional experience, geography, and the company. It's also important to consider the cost of living when looking at national salary averages and ranges. Company industry and size are other determinants of salary. Larger companies typically pay more but have complicated, long hiring practices.Roles that are common for those holding a CCNA R&S certification include network engineer, network technician, network administrator, IT manager, and systems administrator. It's common for even IT professionals with specialized roles and certifications, like CCNA Wireless or Collaboration, to have a generic network engineer title. However, they may also have a specialized job title like wireless networking engineer, collaboration engineer, or a moniker specific to their role.Cisco Certification Training.

I’ve also designed multiple training courses for the largest service providers in the Asia Pacific region such as IBM, Verizon, and the Australian National Broadband Network. I’ve spent years distilling my decade’s worth of networking experience from the field into mentoring and supporting other systems engineers, and I’m passionate about passing my knowledge of Cisco networks onto others.

Fred S.976 courses4 reviewsRating: 5.0 out of 52 years agoVery thorough, covering all the material in an easy to digest, very well laid out, logical format. Better than most other 'CCNA' training I've seen, it is clear that Neil knows his stuff, and his teaching style and delivery are spot on.Show moreShow less Instructor. Neil AndersonBuilding your Cloud and Data Center career4.6 Instructor Rating68,867 Reviews300,784 Students10 CoursesHi, I'm Neil Anderson, and my mission is to build the best Cloud and Data Center systems engineers possible. I dropped out of school with no qualifications or future plans at the age of 15. When I got a little bit older and wiser I realised I should make a career for myself so I pulled myself up by learning about IT technologies through books and online resources. It’s my passion now to help you do the same. You know how some instructors seem to get a kick out of making things complicated to make themselves look smarter than you? I love to make things as easy to understand as possible and seeing you get that lightbulb moment. I'm proud of my 'Top Responder' tag on Udemy and unless I'm on an international flight I'll personally answer your questions within 24 hours. I genuinely care about giving you the best experience possible, both in the quality of my training and in ongoing support.  Nothing makes me feel better than hearing back from students who I've helped move on to the next level in their career. It gives me huge satisfaction to know I've played a part in you achieving your goals. My experience: For the last 9 years my main focus has been delivery of technical training and development of course content for large enterprise and service provider customers such as NetApp, Cisco, Verizon and IBM. I train the engineers who design and implement the largest Cloud and Data Center deployments throughout the Asia Pacific region and the rest of the world. I also provide consultancy to clients and mentoring for the systems engineers in the company I work for. Prior to focusing on training I worked in the field for over 10 years in a variety of systems and network engineering and IT management roles. If you have any questions about Cloud, NetApp, Cisco or VMware technologies, ping me a message and I'd love to help you out.  Specialities: NetApp StorageCisco CCIE #17108Cloud ComputingData CenterVMware VirtualizationCISSP SecurityPRINCE2 Project ManagementITIL CertifiedShow moreShow less

Cisco is one of the largest and most well-respected networking and communications companies in the world. As an industry leader, Cisco’s certifications can be a powerful tool for professionals looking to break into computing, covering a huge range of networking topics that can prepare you for a variety of different roles. Let’s take a look at the Cisco certifications path to see if it could be the option for you.Cisco Certification Path Overview. Cisco has worked extremely hard to create a set of certifications that cover just about everything you could want to know about networking. You don’t have to get all of their certifications to be able to get a job in networking or move onto the next level; the Cisco certifications path is highly modular, enabling you to specialize in a very specific area or branch out and learn as much as you can. You can find a Cisco certifications list below.Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT)Cisco Certified Technician (CCT)Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA)Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA)Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP)Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP)Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE)Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE)Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr)This article will cover each of these different certifications and their specific skill-level in more detail below. As you can see, though, Cisco provides the tools to leverage your talents as you become a networking expert.Cisco's Entry-Level Certifications. Cisco only offers two certifications that can be started without any entry-requirements; Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) and Cisco Certified Technician (CCT). These certifications only have one exam, making them highly accessible, and can prepare you to take the next steps towards becoming a network engineer. Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT): CCENT can enable you to get a role maintaining, troubleshooting, and handling installations on small networks or segments of larger ones. Cisco Certified Technician (CCT): A CCT certification will enable you to work onsite at customer locations, providing network repairs and replacements to ensure that their network-related equipment is functioning properly.Cisco's Associate-Level Certifications. Cisco also offers two separate Associate-Level certifications. Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) and Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) can be the next step in your networking journey, and you may have to take as many as two exams to get them.Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA): CCNA focuses on basic installations, support, and troubleshooting on both wired and wireless networks. You can choose to go down several tracks with a CCNA certificate, including Switching & Routing and Data Center management.Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA): CCDA is all about designing and building wired and wireless networks, and includes Cisco Voice certifications. You will need either a valid CCENT, CCNA Routing and Switching, or any CCIE certification, and pass a single additional exam before you can take this certification.Cisco's Professional-Level Certifications. As you get into Cisco’s professional-level certifications, you will start to see a swift increase in difficulty in each exam. Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) and Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP) are Cisco’s professional certificates, requiring more exams than the certificates at other levels.Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP): Much like CCNA, CCNP comes with a wide variety of tracks to choose from, enabling you to specialize even further. CCNP is designed to train professionals to plan, deploy, and troubleshoot local networks and wide area networks, and can be a stepping stone towards a Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert certificate.Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP): CCDP teaches professionals about designing and deploying scalable networks and multilayer-switched networks, making the perfect step before taking a Cisco Certified Design Expert exam.Cisco's Expert-Level Certifications. Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) and Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE) are the next step for many professionals and are Cisco’s expert-level certificates. These qualifications will distinguish you as a network expert amongst your peers.Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE): Getting a CCIE certificate can make a huge difference to your career prospects. Much like CCNA and CCNP before it, CCIE is designed to teach you about Cisco’s CCIE technical tracks, including Collaboration, Data Center, Routing and Switching, Security, Service Provider, and Wireless.Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE): CCDE provides you with the skills to design infrastructure solutions for large enterprise environments, including every aspect of a project like this.Cisco's Architect-Level Certification. The Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) is the highest-level Cisco qualification available at the moment. This certificate is one of the hardest tech certifications you can find on the modern market, giving you the skills to design and build enterprise-level networks while catering to a specific business’s needs. Unlike the other certificates offered by Cisco, you will have to design an example network based on a piece of coursework before presenting it to an official Cisco panel. This certificate could enable you to become a full-blown network architect.Cisco certifications have long been the gold-standard for networking professionals. They can often be one of the quickest routes into a role in this industry, providing you with the means to learn about networking from one of the industry’s leaders.Field Engineer hasCisco CertificationJobs Available.Become an On-Demand EngineerSign Up & Find JobsHire On-Demand FreelanceCisco Certificationfrom Largest Talent Network.Hire a Freelance EngineerGet StartedBack to skills directoryReady to get started?Download our app to sign up and get started

Cisco Systems employs over 70,000 people and is best known for routing and switching products that can be found in businesses across the globe.  The networking titan also manages one of the most comprehensive, relevant and respected certification programs in the IT world. Whether you’re new to networking or a respected master, you’ll consider achieving at least one Cisco certification – if not, you probably already hold that! Cisco certifications prove a professional’s skills and in-depth knowledge of Cisco equipment. As such, these qualifications can lead to higher earnings for professionals, especially contractors, and are a great route to achieve a senior high-paying job in networking. However, Cisco’s large certification program can be daunting. With that in mind, here’s your definitive guide to Cisco’s Career Certification program. Introduction. Cisco’s Career Certification program covers a wide range of networking disciplines across varying difficulty and experience levels. To achieve any of Cisco’s qualifications, professionals must pass one or more exams administered by Pearson VUE. These exams are tough and even the most basic levels will first require in-depth knowledge of the Cisco technologies being assessed. Most Cisco certifications align to clearly defined ranks listed in terms of experience and prerequisites required. Cisco offers five levels of network certification: Entry Associate Professional Expert Architect Each band typically includes a range of different certifications built for candidates to enhance their knowledge across distinct networking subtopics like routing&switching, cloud and security. Two paths for network professionals. There are two distinct paths within Cisco’s certification program – network operation and network design. While both tracks begin with the entry-level CCENT certification, the paths quickly diverge across separate certifications, skills and knowledge tested. Entry-level Cisco Certifications. This is the first step on Cisco’s certification ladder and two entry-level Cisco certifications are available:  Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) and Cisco Certified Technician (CCT). The CCENT builds and proves the skills required to perform entry-level network support roles – it’s also the first half of the CCNA. Training providers will often group both the ICND1 (CCENT’s certification exam) with the ICND2 (which qualifies professionals for the CCNA) into one course. The CCT certification builds the skills needed to diagnose, restore, repair and replace critical Cisco networking system devices onsite. It’s more hands-on than the CCENT and comes in two flavors: Data Center and Routing and Switching. The CCENT qualifies candidates to access the CCNA certification exam. However, the CCT certification will not qualify candidates to sit the CCNA exam. Associate-level Cisco Certifications. The majority of professionals who hold the CCENT certification will progress quickly onto Cisco’s associate-level certifications: Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) and Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA). Professionals following the network operation track will aim to achieve one of nine CCNA certifications available, each recognizing basic skills in the installation, support, and troubleshooting of wired and wireless networks. While Some CCNA certifications do not require the completion of the CCENT, it’s still highly recommended, especially if the candidate is lacking relevant on-the-job experience. CCENT holders will only need to pass one additional exam (ICND2) to achieve the industry-standard CCNA: Routing and Switching certification. The CCDA is the first certification on the network design track (but does require completion of the CCENT). This certification proves a professional’s ability to design basic wireless and wired networks, incorporating security and voice solutions. Once a CCNA or CCDA is attained, professionals will be qualified to attempt Cisco’s professional level certifications. Professional-level Cisco Certifications. The professional-level certifications include credentials across operations and design tracks: Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) and Cisco Certified Data Design Professional (CCDP). Much like the CCNA, there is a range of CCNP certifications covering a range of networking job roles, including Data Center, Cloud and Wireless. CCNP-level certifications validate a professional’s ability to deploy and troubleshoot local and wide-area enterprise networks while working with specialists in security, voice, wireless and video. CCNP holders also qualify themselves to work as network engineers, technicians and support engineers. One certification is available for professionals on the network design track – the CCDP. This certification proves a candidate’s ability to design and deploy scalable and multilayer switched networks. To gain the CCDP, candidates must complete three exams. To achieve these advanced certifications, candidates must possess valid CCNA or CCDA certifications as well as the in-depth and relevant knowledge required to pass the certification exams. Every CCNP certification (apart from the CCNP: Routing and Switching) requires the completion of four exams. Expert-level Cisco Certifications. Achieving the CCIE is an incredible milestone and a badge that every networking professional will wear with pride. In Cisco’s own words: “The Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) certification is accepted worldwide as the most prestigious networking certification in the industry.” There are seven expert-level certifications available, including one certification for the network design track: CCDE CCIE Collaboration CCIE Data Center CCIE Routing and Switching CCIE Security CCIE Service Provider CCIE Wireless CCIE holders possess expert technical knowledge of Cisco network products and solutions within the relevant CCIE technical track. The single design-focused CCDE certification singles out experts who design infrastructure solutions for large businesses and enterprise environments To achieve a CCIE certification, professionals must pass a rigorous multi-step certification exam, covering a two-hour written assessment and a prolonged eight-hour hands-on lab exam. And while Cisco does not demand any official prerequisites to undertake the exam, professionals are recommended to possess a relevant CCNP and masses of experience before attempting the CCIE. Introduced in July 2016, Cisco now includes an evolving technologies domain in their expert-level exams. As you might expect, this domain targets new technologies, like cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT) and accounts for 10% of the exam score. This is a mechanism from Cisco to ‘future proof’ their CCIE certifications, providing professionals with cutting-edge skills and giving employers the confidence that CCIE holders will be up-to-speed on new networking technologies. Architect-level Cisco Certifications. The network design track continues to Cisco’s Architect-level certification. Known as the Ph.D. of the Cisco Career Certification Program, the Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) is designed for network or data center architects. Specialist Cisco certifications. Outside of Cisco’s certification track sit several specialist certifications. By earning these specialist certifications, network pros can enhance their core networking knowledge in technologies across security, data center and video. The specialist certifications are divided between Technical Specialists and Digital Transformation Specialists. Many of these certifications also align with Cisco’s Partner Specialisation program, validating the Cisco skills and knowledge of entire businesses. How to study. Whether you’re following a career in network operations or network design, Cisco certifications are well positioned to help you perform in a networking role that uses Cisco’s networking equipment. Luckily for candidates, the popularity of  Cisco’s certification program has generated a wide breadth of guides, tutorials and resources designed to help networking pros achieve their certifications. Cisco’s Learning Network provides candidates with access to exam topics, live seminars, training videos, forums and study materials. Candidates can also get access to high-quality Cisco books available from Cisco Press, as well as other independent publishers. A quick search will reveal hundreds of free Cisco resources online; for help studying the popular CCNA course, take a look at this list of free CCNA resources. Students that need to get Cisco-certified fast can opt for instructor-led training from official Cisco learning partners. Official Cisco training is taught by Certified Cisco Systems Instructors and includes the latest Cisco networking equipment. Rate this post Alex Bennett .

Here are the top benefits to Cisco's new certification structure.  The ability to start where you want depending on your current level of expertise - no prerequisites to start earning your associate, specialist, professional or expert level certification. Continuing education credits for recertification and ongoing development are available for CCNA, Cisco Certified Specialist, CCNP and CCIE. Easier path to CCIE status. New Emeritus lifetime tenure for CCIE certifications maintained continuously for 20 years. Badging for completing training courses. No more continuing education administrative fee, as of February 24, 2020. The re-certification period for all certifications will be 3 years. Is CCNA Going Away? The Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) will be retired. At the Associate level will be the new CCNA, which is not going away. The new CCNA will validate a broad range of foundational knowledge and skills. It will have just one exam covering networking and security fundamentals, as well as automation and programmability. Previously, CCNA candidates typically had to take multiple exams to earn one of 10 different CCNA certifications. The new CCNA exam (#200-301) will replace these certifications: CCNA Cloud CCNA Collaboration CCNA Cyber Ops CCNA Data Center CCDA Design CCNA Industrial CCNA Routing and Switching CCNA Security CCNA Service Provider CCNA Wireless The training course for CCNA will cover the foundations covered in both ICND1 and ICND2, while the more advanced info in both of those courses will be moving to the new CCNP level courses. IS CCNA REQUIRED FOR CCNP? No. Passing any one of the CCNP exams will earn you the Cisco Certified Specialist title in that concentration. Then, passing the second exam will earn you the CCNP in that focus area. You will be required to pass 2 exams: a core exam and one concentration exam. Here’s the complete list of the new CCNPs: CCNP Enterprise CCNP Security CCNP Service Provider CCNP Colaboration CCNP Data Center Cisco Certified DevNet Professional The CCNP Enterprise replaces the CCNP Routing and Switching, CCNP Wireless, and CCDP certifications. What is Cisco DevNet Certification? The DevNet certification program validates the skills of software developers, DevOps engineers, automation specialists, and other software professionals. The DevNet track will combine programming (primarily with Python) and infrastructure. The program certifies key emerging technical skills for a new kind of IT professional, empowering organizations to embrace the potential of applications, automation, and infrastructure for the network, IoT, DevOps, and Cloud. The DevNet Associate, DevNet Specialist, DevNet Professional, and CCIE DevNet tracks validate skill sets in: software development programmability building and deploying applications understanding and using APIs network automation Is CCIE Still Worth It? Yes, the CCIE will no longer have dedicated CCIE written exams. Instead, candidates must pass the CCNP core exam and then take the 8-hour CCIE lab in the concentration of choice. For instance, to earn the CCIE Security you’d have to pass the CCNP Security core exam (SCOR 300-701) and then sit for the 8-hour lab, CCIE Security v6.0. That’s consistent across all the new CCIEs with the exception of CCIE Enterprise. In the case of the Enterprise track, you have two options: CCIE Enterprise Wireless and CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure. Both of these tracks adopt the CCNP Enterprise exam (ENCOR 300-401) as their written exam, and then diverge at the lab requirement. They each have a dedicated lab requirement specific to the track: CCIE Enterprise Wireless v1.0 and CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure v1.0. Here’s the complete list of the new CCIEs: CCIE Enterprise Wireless CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure CCIE Security CCIE Service Provider CCIE Collaboration CCIE Data Center How Much Does Cisco Training Cost?

                            [body] => A Guide to Cisco CertificationsView all blog posts under Articles | View all blog posts under MSCS Certifications, or certs, provide a way for network administrators to boost their employability and prove their proficiency in computer system networking. Computer network and systems administrators are generously compensated for their expertise. According to Payscale.com, a network administrator’s average salary is about $60,000, which reflects several years of experience. Entry-level positions can pay between $40,000 and $50,000, depending on variables such as employer and locality. Certifications, or certs, provide a way for network administrators to boost their employability and prove their proficiency in computer system networking. Cisco Systems, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of networking hardware, makes available its own series of third-party certification programs to administrators looking to advance their career. And Cisco certs are highly prized by employers seeking network professionals. Entry-level administrators with a Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) certification can see starting salaries around $60,000 per year, according to Centriq.com’s “Cisco Certification Salaries.” Additional certs can increase opportunities for raises or promotions beyond what may be open to comparable administrators who are not Cisco certified. An online cyber security master’s degree can help graduates position themselves for careers as system network administrators. They can, however, increase their attractiveness to potential employers by mastering other skill sets that can benefit cyber security. Information about Cisco certs is online.   Reasons for Getting Certified by Cisco. For many employers, education is only one aspect of identifying a qualified IT candidate. Certifications are used more in the IT field than in most others because they are a way to verify required competencies for a given position. Most job postings for IT-related fields also require or highly suggest technical certifications, such as those offered by Cisco. A full 60% of employers use certs to confirm subject-matter expertise in job candidates. And 72% require them for job openings where the skill set confirmed by the certification is necessary for success, according to CompTIA’s “5 Reasons Why Employees Look for IT Certifications.” Aside from verifying technical knowledge necessary for IT careers, certification can benefit network administrators in other ways, as Simplilearn.com details in “Is a Cisco Certification Worth It?” For example: Cisco certifications open new career advancement opportunities by making IT professionals more qualified for coveted positions. Cisco certification boosts network professionals’ salaries, not just in entry-level positions but in advanced positions as well. CCNA-certified architects, for example, can earn nearly $120,000 per year. Most employers respect Cisco’s reputation for certifying networking knowledge and skills, so they tend to prefer Cisco certs over other options. In fact, 66% of managers claim that a Cisco cert improves overall service and support. The future benefits of a Cisco certification outweigh the opportunity costs of the training and study needed to complete a Cisco certification track. IT professionals should take care to pursue the Cisco certs that are right for them. In its “Cisco Certification Salaries,” Centriq.com notes that some certs “have wider applications that others.” Pursuing an unrelated certification can involve a lot of time, work, and money for little career benefit.   Popular Cisco Certs. On its website, Cisco Systems offers a long list of certifications ranging from general networking knowledge to highly specialized programs directed at a narrow range of IT personnel. Cyber security professionals may not need a cert as an Operating System Software Specialist or a Network Programmability Developer Specialist, though the CCIE Security certification could benefit their careers. Certification progress from entry-level through associate, professional, expert, and architect levels. According to the “Why Get Cisco Certified” guide to Cisco certifications on the company’s website, the most popular certifications for the security field consist of: Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT): Completion of this cert verifies that the IT candidate can install, operate, and troubleshoot small enterprise branch networks and run basic network security. Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA): A cert in security CCNA proves that a candidate can successfully develop security infrastructure, recognize threats and vulnerabilities, and mitigate security threats. Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP): The CCNP Security program certifies that network professionals are reliably responsible for routers, switches, networking devices, and appliances. They can also choose, deploy, support, and troubleshoot firewalls, VPNs, and IDS/IPS solutions. Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE): Certified experts can architect, engineer, implement, troubleshoot, and support Cisco’s full suite of security technologies. They can also become masters of best practices associated with securing systems against threats and vulnerabilities. Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr): The most difficult and lofty certification available through Cisco is the CCAr. The select few who earn this certification prove that they are ready to be senior infrastructure architects capable of producing network technical specifications that support business objectives. Some cyber security professionals may work in specialized fields that make other Cisco certs worthwhile. For instance, security pros a data center may opt to get certified as a CCNA Data Center Associate as well as a Security Associate. Other tracks are offered in fields including wireless, collaboration, and service provider. The rising level of cyber-attacks and the growing need for security-savvy employees bodes well for job seekers, and security candidates with both a master’s in cyber security and Cisco certifications may well find their resumés at the top of the stack.   University of North Dakota’s Master of Science in Cyber Security Program.

A professional with a CCT certification is charged with working at customer locations to diagnose issues and repair or replace equipment associated with networks. A CCT professional can level up to one of the various speciality certification paths, including Data Center and Routing and Switching.   You May Also Like: Rising Cisco Networking Trends For 2021    Associate-Level Certifications. This certification level includes two of the best-known Cisco certifications: CCNA - Cisco Certified Network Associate CCDA - Cisco Certified Design Associate Depending on which certification track you choose, you will have to pass either one or two certification exams to earn the CCNA or CCDA credential.   A CCNA certification validates your skills and expertise to install, support and troubleshoot wired and wireless networks. You can choose from several career tracks such as: Collaboration Industrial Cloud Cyber Ops Data Center Routing and Switching Service Provider Security Wireless A CCNA certification is one of the prerequisites if you wish to get a CCNP certification, which is a professional level. Depending on the solution track you choose, the prerequisites for CCNA vary. Every solution track has either one exam or two, which you are required to clear.   The CCDA certification was created by Cisco, targeting experts capable of designing wired and wireless networks while incorporating voice and security solutions. The CCDA credential is required if you want to achieve a CCDP certification. To become CCDA certified, you should have a valid CCENT credential, a CCNA Routing and Switching certification or any CCIE credential. If you meet the prerequisites, you need only pass one exam to get certified.   Professional-Level Certifications. The professional certification level has two credentials: CCNP - Cisco Certified Network Professional CCDP - Cisco Certified Design Professional To get certified as a CCDP professional, you need to clear three exams. But before you can apply, you should have the CCDA and the CCNA Routing and Switching certifications. Alternatively, you can present a valid CCIE certification or a CCDE certification.   Every CCNP solution path (excluding Routing and Switching) demands that you should clear four exams. For the Routing and Switching certification, you need to pass three exams. For all CCNP tracks, the prerequisites comprise a CCNA credential from one of the previous levels or a CCIE certification. The Service Provider CCNP certification also counted a CCIP certification credential as a valid eligibility criterion removed in 2012.    The CCNP certification has been designed for IT professionals responsible for planning, deploying and troubleshooting LANs and WANs. The CCNP certification and solution tracks are identical to CCNA (excluding Cyber Ops and Industrial, which the CCNP certification track does not offer. CCNP is a highly recommended prerequisite for a CCIE certification, the following certification on the solution track.   The CCDP certification validates expertise concerning the design and deployment of scalable networks along with multilayer-switched networks. Once you achieve this credential, you can attempt the CCDE certification exam.   Expert-Level Certifications. It is one of the more advanced levels of Cisco certifications. It is made up of two outstanding credentials: CCIE - Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert CCDE - Cisco Certified Design Expert Even though these are among the most advanced certifications, neither CCIE nor CCDE has any prerequisites or eligibility criteria. However, the qualifying exams - one written and one practical - are challenging, and you must clear them both to earn the credential.   In 2016, Cisco added a new update to the exams within this certification level and added a domain related to evolving technologies. The evolving technologies domain deals with the cloud, IoT and network programmability and carries weightage worth 10% in your total exam score. Cisco can sometimes change some topics within this domain to focus on changing and growing technologies. When they achieve significant marketable interest and potential, it warrants studying them further. Cisco clarifies that this is their way of future-proofing Cisco certifications and assuring organisations that Cisco certification-holders are updated on any new technology that surfaces in the IT industry.   Most professionals in the IT domain recognise CCIE as the highest professional certification through their careers. The CCIE credential provides you with strong technical skills and a thorough understanding of Cisco’s products. The current CCIE solution tracks comprise  Collaboration Routing and Switching Data Center Wireless Service Provider The CCDE certification is targeted to professionals who excel in designing infrastructure solutions for larger enterprise environments, including various project domains like technology, operations, budgets, and business.   Also Read: Everything You Need to Know About Cisco CCNA Certification   Architect-Level Certifications.

An Entry-Level Networking CertificationWritten by Coursera • Updated on Dec 15, 2021The CCNA is an entry-level networking certification that can prepare you for networking roles in IT like network specialist, network administrator, and network engineer.What is the CCNA certification?The CCNA—which stands for Cisco Certified Network Associate—is an entry-level information technology (IT) certification issued by networking hardware company Cisco. The CCNA is designed to validate your knowledge on fundamental networking concepts often requested in networking roles in IT positions.Here’s a quick run down of key facts: To get the CCNA certification you’ll have to pass one exam, the 200-301 CCNA.Taking the CCNA exam costs $300, plus tax, as of June 2021.There are no prerequisites to take the exam, but training and some experience with computer networks are recommended.CCNA is a commonly requested IT certification, with over 6,000 job listings on Glassdoor and 12,000 on Indeed that mention the certification in the US, as of June 2021. Read more: 5 Essential IT Certifications: Entry-Level and BeginnerHow much is the CCNA exam?The CCNA exam costs $300, plus tax. You can also use Cisco Learning Credits to purchase the exam. These are prepaid credits a company might buy so that their employees can tailor how to spend the credits on the Cisco platform to their preferences.Trying to cut back on costs? If you think a CCNA certification can be beneficial to your employer, consider approaching your manager to see if the company will pay for the exam or exam training costs (or both).What salary could I earn with the CCNA certification?CCNA certifications can be useful in landing both entry-level and higher-level networking positions. Here are some of the job titles that can request CCNA certifications, and how much they make on average in the US. Salaries are collected from Glassdoor, and are accurate as of June 2021.PositionSalary (average US)IT support specialist$53,051Network specialist$64,430Network administrator$69,243Network engineer$85,822Senior network engineer$116,165Read more: What’s a Network Administrator? A Career GuideCCNA vs. CompTIA Network+. Like the CCNA, the CompTIA Network+ is a certification that will test you in your networking knowledge and is often acquired by professionals hoping to advance their networking skills. There are a few key differences.Unlike CCNA, the CompTIA Network+ certification is vendor neutral. This means that it’s designed to prepare you to work with any network device or system, regardless of what vendor it came from. The CCNA tests you exclusively on Cisco products and tools.The Network+ certification is considered by many to be more foundational than the CCNA. The CCNA is known to cover more topics and go deeper into network material than the Network+. So which should you choose? Many opt to take the CCNA despite it being vendor-specific to Cisco, because Cisco products largely dominate the networking market. Cisco had 47 percent of market share in Ethernet switches, and 33 percent of the combined SP and enterprise router market [1]. Because Cisco products are widely used, it can be useful to know them well. Many learners also find that the knowledge acquired by learning on Cisco products is applicable to networking products from other vendors.That said, because the Network+ focuses on the basics, it can be useful for those completely new to networking, or who find the CCNA too difficult or comprehensive for their needs. It’s completely possible to get the Network+ and go on to take the CCNA when you have more experience.What other Cisco network certifications are there?The Cisco Certification Technician (CCT) is another entry-level Cisco certification. The CCT is designed to equip you with the skills to do onsite support and maintenance of networking devices. It doesn’t delve into networking concepts however, which is likely part of the reason why it tends not to be as requested as the CCNA, even for entry-level IT positions.The Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) is the next level above CCNA. CCNP further has several specializations you can choose from depending on your desired career path.Read more: 6 Network Certifications for Your IT CareerWhat’s on the CCNA exam?The 200-301 CCNA exam takes 120 minutes, and is offered in English and Japanese.The CCNA exam breaks down as follows:Network fundamentals (20%): Network components like routers, switches, and access points; network topology architectures; physical interfaces and cabling types; IPv4 and IPv6 configuration; IP parameters; wireless, virtualization, and switching fundamentalsNetwork access (20%): Configuring and verifying VLANs, interswitch connectivity, Layer 2 discovery protocols, and EtherChannel; Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol operations; Cisco wireless architectures, AP modes, physical WLAN components, AP and WLC management access connections, and wireless LAN access IP connectivity (25%): Routing tables; router decision-making; configuring and verifying IPv4 and IPv6 static routing and single area OSPFv2; first hop redundancy protocolIP services (10%): Configuring and verifying NAT and NTP; describing DHCP, DNS, SNMP, and syslog features; per-hop behavior; using SSH; describing TFTP/FTPSecurity fundamentals (15%): Security concepts like threats and mitigation, physical access control; password policies; access control lists; Layer 2 security features; wireless security protocolsAutomation and programmability (10%): Comparing traditional networks with controller-based networks; automation concepts; interpreting JSON dataHow to get the CCNA certification. In order to become CCNA certified, you’ll have to take the 200-301 CCNA exam offered by Cisco. There are no prerequisites for the exam, but Cisco reports that CCNA candidates generally have the following experience prior to taking the exam:At least one year of using and implementing Cisco products and solutionsBasic knowledge of IP addressingKnowledge of network fundamentalsCCNA courses and training. There are many online courses you can choose from that will prepare you for the CCNA exam. There may also be in-person classes at your local community college that will do the same. Cisco offers an online course called Implementing and Administering Solutions that is designed to help you pass the CCNA exam. The course costs $800 as of June 2021 [2].You can take the Computer Communications specialization on Coursera for a full introduction to the world of networking, or take individual courses if you want to focus on specific skills, like TCP/IP, or packet switching networks. Though the specialization won’t explicitly prepare you for the CCNA, you’ll learn much of the fundamentals of computer networks.If you need a quick refresher on networks, or are still deciding if networking is for you, you might consider completing the Introduction to Networks and Cisco Devices guided project on Coursera. The project can be completed in under three hours.Looking to start a career in IT? If you’re hoping to learn more broadly about IT fundamentals, consider the Google IT Support Professional Certificate. You can learn job-ready skills in six months, including network fundamentals. Plus, it’ll prepare you for the CompTIA A+ exam—and you’ll get a free trial week.Next steps. If you’re just getting started in IT, it can be worth exploring other entry-level certifications to see your other options. Don’t forget that there are other network certifications that you can get as well.
