Which is better to have the CCNA or the A+, Net+

By rebelweems ·
Which is better to have the CCNA or the A+, Net+ I've heard that the A+ is ok but it can hinder your advancement, but I have heard the CCNA is a great one for the Cisco cert track.

Suggestions?

Your experience

In my opinion, CCNA is more prestigious. it
is not an easy exam, which adds credibility
to the title. A+, Net+ are interesting but
their generic nature erodes some of the
serious experience required in IT skills. in
that sense
i would be at more ease hiring a person with
a CCNA. More confident definitely.

but

certification does not substitute experience,
and no matter what acronyms you have attached
to your name, "no experience" is easy to
spot.

i hope this helps.

CCNA > A and Net

The CCNA goes well above and beyond anything on the network+ test. The upside to getting the Net+ is that it is vendor neutral... However, the CCNA covers everything that the Net+ does and goes into much more detail.

IMO : The A+ is a good certification for a 16-17 year old to be able to step into some sort of tech support position, but I really don't look at the A+ as being a very important certification if you have plenty of job experience.
