Becoming an expert in CCNA CCNP & CCIE
Cisco Collaboration (CCNA CCNP & CCIE)
Cisco Collaboration (CCNA CCNP & CCIE): New collaboration technologies allow us to interact in ways we never have before, and enterprises can use automation to expand and protect their collaboration solutions using intent-based networking. Your options to help achieve that potential is limitless with the CCNA CCNP & CCIE Collaboration certification. Simply inquire of hiring managers: Certifications improve their confidence in an applicant’s ability, according to 71% of them. The CCIE Collaboration certification was created to help you establish yourself as a technical leader in the ever-changing collaboration technology field. The certification certifies your end-to-end lifecycle skills in complex collaboration solutions, from planning and design to operating and optimizing, and covers major technology domains. CCIE is one of the most generally recognized and regarded certifications in the industry, signaling to the rest of the world that you know what you’re talking about. Furthermore, passing a CCIE certification qualifying exam grants you a Cisco ® Specialist certification, allowing you to be acknowledged for your achievements.
These are four very respected and needed certificates. I will try to make it simple and brief.
We can directly compare between only two of these “CCNA and CCNP”
-Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching is a certification program for entry-level network engineers that helps maximize your investment in foundational networking knowledge and increase the value of your employer’s network.
-Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) validates the ability to plan, implement, verify and troubleshoot local and wide-area enterprise networks and work collaboratively with specialists on advanced security, voice, wireless, and video solutions.
So basically CCNP is the next step (next advanced level) you get after CCNA. So it’s obviously better and harder.
You need these certificates if you are interested in networks. (Network Engineer)
*** There are many tracks for Cisco certificates for example:
– Routing and switch
– ……. etc
MCSA (Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate) is a certification program intended for people who seek entry-level jobs in an IT (information technology) environment. MCSA is a prerequisite for more advanced Microsoft certifications.
MCSA intends to teach you working with windows servers. (System Engineer/Admin) .. MCSE is like the CCNP for the CCNA.
There are many tracks for MCSA as well. MCSA Windows server is the most popular.
CRISC (Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control) certification is designed for IT professionals who have hands-on experience with risk identification, assessment, evaluation, response, and monitoring.
CRISC-certified professionals manage risk, design and oversee response measures, monitor systems for risk, and ensure the organization’s risk management strategies are met. Organizations look for employees with the CRISC credential for jobs such as IT security analyst, security engineer or architect, information assurance program manager, and senior IT auditor.
The best certification is the one that focuses on the technology that you are passionate about.
Look if you are passionate about sales and you are good, you can then sell Snow to a white man while sell sand to an Arab.
Focus on technologies that you can make sure become your passion and hobby. When you become a subject matter expertise and brand yourself to be an expert in that field, you will find opportunities.
Good MCSE/MCSA guys are still highly in demand providing they are experts in their field.
But you must show that expertise by blogging about it, providing free resources to others, helping others learn from you, making video tutorials, and publishing it with your name
As people start to watch or read your blogs, your name starts to become popular and invest in you and your knowledge.
Don’t just focus on certifications. Focus on yourself and how you can make yourself known to others along getting certifications
