Bridging the Networking Skills Gap: Cisco’s New Entry-Level CCENT1 | 2 |
The goal is to provide a steady flow of qualified network technicians to the marketplace that parallels the continued rollout of new technologies. This underscores Cisco’s view of the increasingly critical role of networking technology in supporting business processes.
For those just entering the networking field, certification provides improved preparation for entry-level employment and superior training, the opportunity to differentiate skills to potential employers and, perhaps most important, a first step toward a lifelong career.
For those with work experience, certification provides continued skills development and the opportunity to advance and move in new directions. For employers, a better-prepared candidate at every level reduces business risk, improves productivity and maximizes technology investments.
