CCNA Certified Training

01. Course Overview

CCNA certification helps one in internetworking jobs ensuring that employees of associate-level have the property to validate, to configure, to install, to operate and also help in network troubleshoots. It is quite an interesting program and most of the employees now days go for a certified course so as to get better promotions and better opportunities in the corporate world. But it is necessary to get certified from good institutions who promise a better tomorrow. This course at 9to5 Technologies will help you get better and allows one to achieve the best career opportunity.

02. What is CCNA?

The CCNA Certification has been formulated by Cisco and stands for Cisco Certified Network Associate. CCNA is the most popular certification in the Networking Industry; It builds as the initial bridge among all other certifications courses. CCNA is the most sought certification program for entry level Network Engineers.  CCNA certification builds the foundation knowledge in Networking. Because the certification opens the door wide into the world of IT networking, it is considered one of the best IT certifications.

03. CCNA Training in Punjab

We all are very busy building our careers. It is time to stink differently since normal graduations and post graduations won’t work these days. Even if when you are attached to a working space, an office or organization or any business, recruiters seek business and certified degrees that will help you establish your career. With this comes a specialized career course that not only adds value to your resume but also establishes yourself in your genre. CCNA training institute in 9to5 is one such space that provides you with unique CCNA training. It’s the genre of technology and data management and one has to be a pro at this. Those network engineers and data engineers working their best in industries, if they gain this certificate course, will not only be posted to a higher designation but some can even travel the world!

04. Job Scopes

Designation and job role of a CCNA certified candidate varies according to his track and knowledge of a candidate. Let’s discuss a few job roles that you can get after CCNA certifications.

  1. System Engineers (Computer Networking/ IT): The Prime responsibility of a system engineer is to install and manage different devices (systems) in an organization. That may include different hardware of PCs, routers, switches or other devices being used. For this, you will have to get a good knowledge of different hardware aspects of Router/ Switches.

  2. Technical Support Engineer: Key responsibility of TSE is to resolve customer issues over the phone or via remote access. IT Tech support monitors, maintains and troubleshoot computer system and network in an organization.

  3. Desktop / Network Support Engineer: It is more efficiently described as L1 and L2 support engineers. You will not get direct access to routers or switches but you will have to give proper support to engineers who have the access.

  4. Network Administrator: System Admins and Network Admins are two different job profiles but in some small scale companies, it could be same.

  5. Network Engineers: This is one of the most popular job roles in the networking field. They can work as a part of IT support team in an organization. Designing, Implementing, Maintaining and support of a company’s network are their core responsibilities. Cisco networking skills play a huge part in this job role.

  6. Network Security Associate: Perfect for candidates who want to make their career in Network Security. Job roles of a security associate include performing basic security vulnerability assessment to identify security threats. Please note that if you want to go for a job in security, you will have to do both CCNA Routing and Switching and CCNA Security.

  7. Other Job roles: Many other job roles are also available depending on the CCNA Track. For example, if someone has good knowledge of wireless fundamentals, he can easily get the job on that basis. Other job titles are like Network Support Technician, Data center Associate, Video and Voice Engineers etc.
