Network engineers are in high demand today and that demand is only going to increase, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. The BLS notes that job opportunities here will grow by as much as 30% between 2008 and 2018*. However, in order to take advantage of this intense growth potential, prospective network engineers need the right education.
CCNA training through Cisco courses is perhaps the best route to take. Here are four reasons why CCNA training can improve your job prospects.
Get your Competitive Edge
Today’s IT field is incredibly competitive. Despite the significant growth in the industry, you still have to take steps to make yourself the most appealing job candidate possible. CCNA certifications do this for you. By taking CCNA classes, you will be able to project an image of professionalism, experience and expertise to set yourself apart from other candidates.
CCNA Classes Ensure You Learn the skills
Another important reason to invest in Cisco courses is to ensure that you have the knowledge required to stay on the cutting edge in the IT field. IT evolves constantly as new hardware and software come to market. CCNA classes not only provide you with a firm foundation in the basics of network engineering, but also help you stay ahead of the curve. CCNA certifications ensure that you have expertise and experience in common technology used today as well as what’s coming down the pipe in several key areas, including:
- Network fundamentals
- Routing protocols and concepts
- LAN switching and wireless technology
- WAN concepts and access
CCNA options: Take your pick of expertise
You will also find that Cisco certifications provide a range of options to help further your education. For example, you will find CCNA classes in CCNA Voice, CCNA Security and quite a few other classes that will help further your career as well as ensure that you comply with CISCO mandates for professional credentialing.
No More Procrastination! Find the Help You Need
Of course, taking CCNA classes is not as simple as making the decision and then doing it. You need to find a quality education provider to ensure that you have the understanding required to pass the CCNA exams. CCNA classes will help you prepare for these exams, but not all providers are the same. You must choose a provider that offers in-depth training, one-on-one tutoring, peer group study and more. A CCNA boot camp can provide exactly what you need, though students who prefer to attend something less rigorous will certainly find Cisco courses available that fit their needs, as well. In fact, the right provider will offer both accelerated and standard course options to fit the needs of every student.
