Networking is a topic that is often mentioned and discussed when people talk about high salary-providing, career opportunity-offering jobs. People who decide to follow the path towards becoming a network administrator or technician usually have their work cut out for them - these positions often require a lot of training & studying the subject, and quite a few certifications. The position is usually worth the work, however - networking professionals tend to have some of the best salaries out there. If you want to start working towards becoming a networking specialist, one of the very first steps will be to acquire the CCENT certification. And this course is going to help you do just that.
What is CCNET Certification?
If you’ve only studied the very basics of networking, you might not even know what the CCENT certification actually is. Even though it will be covered quite extensively within the course itself, I’ll give you a brief definition right now. CCENT stands for “Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician”. As the name implies, the Cisco CCENT certification is an entry-level examination process in becoming a certified network technician. Once you decide to take this examination and pass it, various other networking certifications “unlock” (most of them require you to have first passed the CCENT certification).
Now, why is this even important? Well, Cisco being the technology conglomerate that it is, most high-profile companies that deal with networking and that aim to hire qualified network technicians ask their potential employees to provide proof that they have passed some levels of the Cisco networking certifications - the Cisco CCENT certification being the most basic of them. If you are able to prove that you’re a Cisco certified networking technician, there’s little to no extra questions asked - you will most likely qualify for the job.
