How would the CCNA certification help me?

Requires Free Membership to View

The CCNA is an entry-level, single certification exam. It's the best stepping stone into more advanced Cisco certifications at the Professional (CCNP, CCDP, CCSP, CCIP, and CCVP) level, as well as for the company's numerous specialist level certifications. But other than helping you make sure you've got a good basic background in general networking concepts, tools, and technologies, the CCNA isn't really worth that much in and of itself. Most experts agree that the CCNA matters more because of where it can get you, and the follow-on program pre-requisites it helps you to meet, than because of its intrinsic value in helping individual CCNA holders find work on the strength of that credential alone.
