New CCNA Concentrations

Filed under: CCNA — ccxx4488 @ 7:39 pm

Cisco has announced new concentrations for the CCNA track.

Good news for some, bad news for others. Some people view the new concentrations as simply a way for Cisco to generate more income, others like myself view the new concentrations as a better entry point to a job with a focus in Voice or Security.

Let’s look at where we were a week ago. If you wanted to develop skills and certifications in either Security or Voice, you had to obtain a Professional level certification. Who wants to hire someone thats got a CC*P and zero practical experience (home lab aside)? The new concentrations fill the gap for employers needing a Voice or Security Tech, and they fill the gap for people at the CCNA level that want to get a recognized certification suitable for entry level jobs.

Just my 2 cents
