CISCO Certification for IT Professionals

At an early age of 7, I’m already aware of different computer activities and computer games. When my parents decided to put up a computer-related business at that time, I, too, was influenced by the nature of their work. Since then, I really dreamed of becoming a computer expert or an IT professional someday. Now, I’m taking up Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and I’m already in my 3rd year as an IT student.

Surprisingly, CISCO is part of our major subject this semester. We are currently using CISCO’s program in our Computer Networks class and I must say that it is indeed very helpful especially for aspiring IT professionals like me. CCNA or Cisco Certified Networking Associate is one of the programs that we are currently studying this now. This CISCO certification program equips us with necessary skills on how to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks. This program also includes basic mitigation of security threats, introduction to wireless networking concepts and terminology, and performance-based skills. We also had our lab exercises regarding IP addressing and network routing.

Considering the rapid growth of the IT industry nowadays, having a competent and advance knowledge in computer related stuffs is definitely an advantage especially when looking for jobs. Most companies often hire applicants who have great skills and expertise in computers. Aside from it, having certifications from a credible certification body, like CISCO, will also be a plus factor since this will assure companies about the applicant’s skills and potential which he/she can contribute to the business. Personally, I’m planning to get a CISCO certification someday after finishing my IT course. I believe that having a certification signifies your expertise in your chosen field and enhances also your credibility as an IT professional.
