IT Networking Career Opportunities

IT networking careers are about making connections in new, safer, and more efficient ways. But a career in IT isn’t limited to building and maintaining the infrastructure behind those connections. IT needs leaders, sellers, and marketers too.

The field is full of rewarding, meaningful work, and Cisco associate-level certifications can help you get your foot in the door.

We all need the network, and the network needs you

Cisco offers three associate-level certifications to prepare you to connect, secure, and automate IT infrastructure:

  • CCNA covers the fundamentals of network infrastructure engineering with a grounding in security and automation
  • Cisco Certified CyberOps Associate validates your ability to prevent, detect, analyze, and defend against cybersecurity threats
  • Cisco Certified DevNet Associate focuses on developing and maintaining software and applications built on Cisco platforms
  • We are Cisco-certified

    To earn a Cisco associate-level certification, you need to learn the material and then pass a single, proctored exam. The exams aren’t easy – that’s why they have such value – but we’re here to help you get ready.

    Invest a few months now to study and practice, then pass the exam, then you’re off and running.
