Entry-level Cisco certifications begin either with Cisco Certified Entry Level Technician (CCENT) certification as an interim step to the Associate-level, or a Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) certification. With a CCENT certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required for entry-level network operating and support positions – the starting point for many successful careers in networking. Cisco Certified Technicians have the skills to diagnose, restore, repair, and replace critical Cisco networking and system devices at customer sites.
Both of the following certification levels serve as entry points for individuals interested in starting a career as a network professional.
