The Key to New Employment - QuickCert IT Training

An IT Certification may not always be a job requirement, but it is often a deciding factor between qualified candidates. In fact, technology is one of the most in-demand career fields, but recent graduates and professionals are both struggling to find new jobs or get promoted because they donʼt have a certification – a third-party validation of their skills.

Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching is one of the most sought-after career credentials in the tech industry. Tech professionals with this certification take home salaries that are, on average, 16.7 percent higher than their uncertified peers, according to a Fairfield Research study.

The core CCNA Certification can be obtained by passing a single 90-minute written exam. The exam has no prerequisites, although Cisco and other companies offer various formal training courses to help students prepare. Topics covered on the CCNA Exam include:

• LAN and WAN Design (including the OSI model)
• IP Addressing
• Routers and Routing Protocols (including OSPF, EIGRP and RIP) • VLAN (Virtual LAN) and WLAN (Wireless LAN)
• Network Security and Management (including ACLs)

QuickCertʼs CCNA Online IT Course provides the knowledge and skills required to successfully install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium size enterprise branch network. Increase your job chances and salary with an CCNA Certification Course from QuickCert.
