Get On The Path To Success
We all want to succeed. Cisco certifications help IT networking professionals achieve this goal by laying out a clear pathway to success. The Cisco Career Certifications path encompasses five levels of network certification: Entry, Associate, Professional, Expert, and Architect, the highest level of accreditation within the Cisco Career Certifications program. Today I will focus on the first four levels. All of the certifications within these levels are designed around specific job roles, and help you build and validate expertise as you advance in your career.
The Entry-level CCENT® certification is the first step in your Cisco certification path. CCENT certification provides you with the foundational knowledge and skills that you need for success in an entry-level network administrator, network engineer, or network specialist position.
As you become more experienced in your career and want to delve into a more challenging job role, it is crucial to prove to your superiors, employer, and colleagues that you have what it takes to move up into that position. This is where continuing on the career path to the Associate level at 1-3 years of experience, and then Professional-level certifications at 3-5 years of experience, can help.
As you continue through the steps of your career, it is important to stay on the career path. At 7+ years of experience, people commonly want to move into a senior position at their company. In order to make this goal a reality, it is advisable to obtain an Expert-level certification. Competition is fierce, and becoming too comfortable at this stage of your career may lead to stagnancy. Being stagnant will not get you to the goal of a senior-level position. However, remaining on the Cisco certification path can keep you on the right track and ahead of the competition.
Give yourself and your career the knowledge, skills, and edge over the competition that you desire. It is never too early or too late to start. Visit the Certification Index and get on the path to success today.
