Certification? What is a certification?

A person gets certified after taking a exam offered by a vendor in a test centre.

The  Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) are the entry level certifications to become a networking professional.

Why should I take the certification exam?

You might want to formalise or extend your present knowledge.

Holding a valid certification exam in the proof of your knowledge. It can be scary to take the exams, as they are fast paced and not easy – that is what make their value after all! With the correct preparation, you should be able to clear them easily!

Cisco certifications are recognised worldwide and lead students into starting roles for businesses operating a Cisco network. They are also a starting point towards higher certification or certification in other networking area, such as network security, wireless…

There is a lot of demand for Networking specialists!
