If you don’t see the certification or course you require, please ask! We can deliver closed and customized Cisco courses as required.
Cisco Entry Level Certifications
The first step in attaining a general certification with Cisco begins with either the Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT), as an interim step to Associate level, or directly to the Associate level outlined below, with CCNA for network operations or CCDA for network design.
CCENT validates the ability to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small enterprise branch network, including basic network security. With a CCENT, the network professional demonstrates the skills required for entry-level network support positions—the starting point for many successful careers in networking. CCENT is the first step towards achieving CCNA, which covers medium-size enterprise branch networks with more complex connections.
