How is Cisco preparation structured

In the competitive field of technology, obtaining a good job has become a challenge, especially in the past years, when the international economical situation has diminished young people’s changes. Nowadays, more and more students finish speciality faculties, which is why the university degrees have become almost irrelevant and added value is needed for a candidate to obtain a job. The employers look for promising people, eager to develop continuously, who also have some previous experience, not necessarily on the work market but also in terms of knowledge. In order to have an edge on other applicants, you should have an extra element, and in the technological field having a Cisco CCNA certification could be the advantage you have on the other candidates.  The classes are very structured, according to the needs and previous knowledge of the attendants. In addition to this, they are especially designed so that the participants take the best out of it, not only on the theoretical part, but also on the practical one.

How is Cisco preparation structured

The classes are easy to attend, and all you have to do is contact a Cisco representative, subscribe for the trainings and then attend them, for a few weeks. In case you do not have access to the place where the courses are held, Cisco also offers you the alternative of online webinars and support materials. The training is structured on many parts, to meet the expectations of all those who want to attend it. Firstly, there is entry level, consisting in the CCENT and the CCT, which represent the perfect starting point for those who have minimal knowledge but want to start their career in the professional networking field. Then there is the “associate” level, also known as CCNA, which usually begins with the preparation for network installation, and other basic operations specific to network design. This level represents the foundation of a future career in the field, offering the participants the opportunity to learn new things about network security, routing and switching, data centre or wireless devices. The next level is the professional one, which brings new advanced notions, in order to prove that those who obtain the certification have expertise as far as networking skills are concerned. It is also divided into many sub categories; each of them regards a different subarea, in order to prepare different needs of people who occupy various jobs, since the field is very dynamic.


The last two levels, dedicated to those with advanced knowledge, are expert and architect. A special aspect about the Cisco training is that they can be attended also by those who already work in the field, which is why there are these two advanced tracks of the preparation. While expert is one of the most famous certification in technology, architect level represents the most professional accreditation, ensuring the expertise of the participants in terms of complex network operations. Those who obtain certification in the architect level can easily work in multinational organizations and implement long term strategies to obtain technological evolution.
