January 10th, 2010

If Cisco training is your aspiration, but you’ve no practical experience with network switches or routers, we’d recommend taking the CCNA training.

The internet is constructed from huge numbers of routers, and big organisations with many locations also utilise routers to keep their networks in touch.

You must have a basic grasp of networks prior to starting your Cisco training or the chances are you’ll fall behind. When you’ve qualified and are on the job market, companies will expect good networking skills in addition to the CCNA.
