CCENT® Certification

The CCENT Certification validates the skills required for entry-level network support positions, the starting point for many successful careers in networking. CCENT certified professionals have the knowledge and skill to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small enterprise branch network, including basic network security. CCENT Certification is the first step toward achieving CCNA, which covers medium size enterprise branch networks with more complex connections.
