Q: CCNA Basics: How Can a CCNA Training Course Help Me Get Certification?

A: Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certifications demonstrate specialized knowledge in information technology concepts. There are several different types of CCNA certifications, with Routing and Switching being the most popular. Before employees seek CCNA certification, they often obtain a Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) certification. Training courses taken in groups or at home can prepare students for CCNA certification exams, significantly reduce study time, and increase potential success with the tests. Though money will have to be spent on prep courses and study materials, significant potential pay raises after obtaining certification make earning these credentials a sound investment.

Q: What Is the Best Way to Prepare for the CCNA Certification Exam?

A: Preparing for Cisco’s CCNA certification exam is a monumental undertaking. Since 95% of people fail the test the first time they take it and the required score to pass can be relatively high, many test-takers dedicate months to preparing for the exam. Good preparation requires finding quality materials to review, like legitimate practice tests and current study guides. Signing up for a comprehensive training program that covers both basic and advanced concepts can also help. Although some test-takers choose to study in their leisure time, a determined few make preparing for this notoriously challenging exam a full-time endeavor.

Q: What’s the Best Way to Learn Cisco CCNA Concepts?

A: Generally, the fastest and easiest way to learn CCNA skills is to take a hands-on class that’s taught by a live instructor. Since Cisco CCNA certification can be challenging to achieve, it’s important to have the support you need while you practice what you need to know to earn this valuable credential. Also, make sure to choose a course that aligns with your knowledge level and covers multiple CCNA concepts. Students who find CCNA training overwhelming and have a generous amount of time to study may also consider taking a self-paced online course that can be completed at home.
