Cisco Inc. certifications are universally recognized as the industry standard for network design and support, demonstrating high-level expertise and credibility. Firms employing Cisco-certified staff are well positioned to maximize their network investment, stay ahead of the technology curve and anticipate, not just respond to, market factors. Authorized training to obtain a Cisco certification and prepare individuals for real-world networking environments is offered only by Cisco Learning Partners and their Sponsored Organizations. There are five steps to obtaining and maintaining a Cisco certification. There are numerous training options available to prepare them for the exams, including on-the-job training, e-learning, classroom-based training or a combination of these, offered by Cisco Learning Partners. After passing their first exam, they can log on to the Cisco Career Certifications Tracking System to view certification progress and opt to receive the latest updates from Cisco.
