Cisco Certification Job Matrix

As networks continue to evolve, the demand for professionals who have the skills and training needed to manage and maintain converged technologies continues to grow. As a result, matching the right talent with the right jobs will be more important than ever and increasingly more difficult.

Fortunately, there is a solution. The IDC MarketScape: Worldwide IT Education and Training 2011 Vendor Analysis says, "Training and team skill have the most significant impact on overall performance of technology and success of technology projects."

Confidence Comes with Cisco Certification

The success of your business depends on the people running it. Cisco Certification assures that you have hired the most competent professional to improve the performance of your critical technology infrastructure. The 2011 IDC survey "Impact of Training on Network Administration: Certification Leads to Operational Productivity" found quantitative benefits from the type of experience you get from employees certified by Cisco:

  • Unscheduled downtime was about 20 percent lower at organisations with more certified IT staff
  • Organisations with higher concentrations of certified staff spent about 30 percent less on external support for network security activities
  • Results show organisations with more than 50 percent of their team members certified performed above the average of all organisations 

Recertification

Recertification is an important indicator to IT professionals and their employers, ensuring that the certification holder has kept up with current trends in networking technology. Valid certifications may be renewed indefinitely, but without timely renewal, certifications expire or become inactive. To keep certifications current, individuals should recertify by advancing to the next level of certification or passing the designated recertification exam(s). Find out more here.
