Why should you take the CCNA v3, CCENT (ICND1, ICND2) and CCDA (DESGN) - Prep Boot Camp

This boot camp class prepares the student for the certification exam and on the path of getting certified.

Benefits of Certification

For IT professionals, certification is a third party validation of your skills, that helps distinguish you from your peers. Beyond demonstrating a level of competency and proficiency, certification proves that you are committed to your cause and that you've invested the time and money to prove it. Holding a certification also makes you a more valuable employee, and often results in raises, promotions, and a better career.

For organizations, certifications identify the credentials that can be used to hire the right employee. Having certified employees also increases sales for the organization by proving to prospective clients that the organization has the skills to support its claims.
