Introduction

With three decades of leading industrial service, Cisco is the world’s largest global networking

organization. The company has successfully developed, manufactured, and provided industries

and organizations with networking hardware, equipment, and other high-technology products,

services, trainings, and solutions.

Cisco trainings and solutions are industry standard benchmarks designed to help both

is not just beneficial for the workforce and IT practitioners, but is also useful for employers.

These globally recognized networking and telecommunications certifications show one’s

mastery in the designated fields and help the learner achieve better career opportunities,

salary, and recognition.

Understanding Cisco Certifications

Cisco offers a comprehensive range of certifications. These certifications are designed in such

a manner that anyone from entry level to highly experienced can take advantage and enhance

their skills and understanding. Cisco certifications are classified as under five levels: entry,

associate, professional, expert and architect, based on a rising scale of difficulty. Going for a

higher certification requires a thorough understanding of the previous one.

Cisco certificates for beginners provide novice professionals with an in-depth understanding

of necessary topics. Progressing from one certification to another, one carries a complete

understanding of the previous course to the next level. Cisco courses are focused on insightful

learning and overall development. Let’s take a look at the three most popular Cisco certification

tracks:
