Attain A Cisco Certification In I.T.Training

Kenya's is still lacking behind in the number of I.T professionals and there seems to be an added push by the ministry of information and communication especially through its Permanent Secretary Mr Bitange Ndemo and Kenya ICT board Chief Executive Paul Kukubo to engage more youth to pursue a career in ICT.The fact that the Minister for Finance Mr Amos Kimunya set aside Kshs 900, million for a construction of the 5,000 seater ICT Business Outsourcing Park at the Export Processing Zone and US $15 Million for the conclusion of the submarine fibre optic(TEAMS PROJECT) gateway connection indicates that the Government is serious in ensuring that Kenya's ICT industry is robust and up to par with international standards.

Thinking of the budget, my career advice to those still in schooling and those desiring to enhance their careers is for the same to seek internationally reputable and accredited certification such as Cisco certification It stands to reason that by acquiring a reputable ICT certification in a relevant ICT niche one will be in a better position to harness the opportunities that will spring up in the near future.Indeed as countries and industries continue to transform and adopt networking technology and infrastructures, the demand for skilled IT professionals will rise immensely. Cisco recently introduced the new Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT) and the newly revised CCNA certifications, this programs will ensure that one has the needed skills to become successful in today’s IT job market.

The question that props up is since IT is a diverse and robust field where can one find sound advice as to which courses to pursue.Fortunately enough there are various colleges around that offer CISCO certifications and can advice one on this, however to go a step further CISCO has set up an online social network community at the following link Cisco certification where one can engage interactively with various ICT professionals in order to map out a career in Information and Technology.This award-winning program is much more than simply training classes. It’s a complete lifecycle of learning tools and resources that can lead to recognition, new job opportunities, and better compensation.
