Cisco Certification

By cboehle ·
I am looking for someone who is Cisco Certified to help guide me on my way to a certification. Please Help. I have been an admin for a while, but with no credentials and no one to guide me in the right direction. Any assistance you could give me would be greatly appreciated, i.e. take a course, use study guides, etc. My e-mail address is cboehle@precision-camera.com. Thank You.

Certification

by dangles In reply to Cisco Certification

I am assuming that you have no prior networking experience other than admin. I would suggest you take the Cisco CCNA course and progress up the ladder, assuming the Cisco certification route is the way you want to proceed. If you find that this course of action suits you, then go on to the CCNP or CCDP and if you really feel froggy try the CCIE.

Certification...

by Cisco_Guy In reply to Certification

If Cisco is the way you want to go, then you really have no choice but to start with the CCNA course and work your way up from there. However, not knowing your experience level, If you aren't that network savvy, and/or have never seen a router before, the CCNA exam will not be very easy and may even seem intimidating to you. If this is the case, I would suggest starting with an A+ or Network+ exam to familarize yourself with the technologies you will no doubt be faced with on the CCNA exam. Just an opinion.

I agree with Cisco_Guy. I am currently CCNP certified and will sit for the CCDP at the end of May. I have 10 years experience in the networking field. I took the CCNA test twice but passed the 4 CCNP exams the first time. It would help to know alittle about your background and where you see yourself in a year.

How I got my CCNA

by Aldanatech In reply to Cisco Certification

If you have been an admin for a while, you probably know to basics on networking concepts. If you want to start your Cisco track, then it would be helpful to have some background on the basics of computer hardware and networking. If not, that's ok, first semester will cover this but you will have to put your best effort in to this. Otherwise it will get a little intimidating for you.

Probably your first step is to go to Cisco Training and Certification page (http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/10/wwtraining/). It will give you everything you need to know, including details about the certifications, locate a center near you, etc.

After you finish, you should get a study guide to prepare yourself for the exam. Some of them can even make your study time easy and fun such as CCNA for Dummies. They focus on what you need to know for the exam, but again I highly recommend you through the Cisco courses first. After all your performance after passing the exam is what really counts.
