Cisco Entry Certifications

Cisco Entry Level

Entry-level Cisco certifications begin either with Cisco Certified Entry Level Technician (CCENT) certification as an interim step to the Associate-level, or a Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) certification. With a CCENT certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required for entry-level network operating and support positions - the starting point for many successful careers in networking. Cisco Certified Technicians have the skills to diagnose, restore, repair, and replace critical Cisco networking and system devices at customer sites.

Both of the following certification levels serve as entry points for individuals interested in starting a career as a network professional.

 

CCENT - Cisco Certified Technicians

Cisco Certified Technicians have the skills to diagnose, restore, repair, and replace critical Cisco networking and system devices at customer sites. Technicians work closely with the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) to quickly and efficiently resolve support incidents. Cisco authorsed training is available online and can be completed in multiple short sessions, enabling technicians to stay productive in the field. Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) certification is available in multiple technology tracks, providing an opportunity for Cisco support technicians to expand their area of expertise.
