Cisco Certs

By stansburyjd ·
I am currently a network administrator in the Marine Corps, and I was wondering what cirtificatinos I should try to get. In order to persue a network admin job in the civilian sector when I get out. What I do currently is build and maintain networks in the tactical enviroment however we use all the typical cisco equipment. So any suggestions as to what I should do would be greatly appricated. Thanks.

Hi there
My suggestion is u start of with CCNA and then forcing your way up to CCNP THEN CNIE but if you are looking for a administrator kinda job then better get on the MCSE track cos, it will surely boost your image in that field

First of all, try to reconciliate stuff you know and have at work. For example, if you have Cisco routers and switches, do CCNA, and then, if you deeply involved in network configuration and planning, do CCNP. If you also involved into the Windows or UNIX management, after (or before) CCNA, take MCSE or UNIX/Linux certifications. But don't get too crazy about getting to the highest level - first get everything what will prove your current knowledge. Getting CCIE certification requires great dedication - you should be doing this 8x5x365, and only this. And after you get all certifications for your everyday stuff, start learning something new, but in the same area.

Good luck,

CCNP, CCDP, CCSP, Cisco Voice, MCSE W2K, MCSE+I, Security+, etc.
