Cisco Introduces New Entry-Level Certification
San Jose, Calif. — Aug. 29
Cisco introduced the Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) to its Career Certification Program last week. The CCT training and certification programs are designed for technicians who perform onsite support and maintenance of Cisco infrastructure for routing and switching, TelePresence and data center products.
As the network evolves to meet new organizational and business requirements, the demand for skilled IT professionals continues to grow.
Developed by the Cisco Technical Assistance Center, the CCT certifications validate the job skills of hardware field engineers who perform onsite support, maintain Cisco equipment and effectively work with the Cisco Technical Assistance Center to resolve onsite support issues. The modular online training can be accessed when needed, maximizing flexibility for technicians serving customers in the field.
Other benefits include:
• The CCT certifications validate product-specific skills in installing, verifying, replacing and troubleshooting Cisco networking equipment onsite.
• Cisco authorized training courses provide technicians with proper maintenance and troubleshooting procedures as well as training on how to work efficiently with the Cisco Global Technical Assistance Center.
• The online course features text, audio narration, graphics and videos, and can be completed in multiple short sessions, minimizing time out of the field.
• A single 90-minute exam is required for each certification in the three technology areas. Exams are available at all Pearson VUE testing facilities worldwide.
“Onsite IT technicians and their employers responsible for support of Cisco networking equipment now have a formal way to qualify their ability to work with a customer’s critical networking infrastructure. Cisco Certified Technicians become members of the largest community of networking professionals in the industry, and have the opportunity to expand their support, implementation and design skills through additional Cisco authorized training and certification programs,” said Jeanne Beliveau-Dunn, vice president and general manager, Learning@Cisco.
Exams are now available through Pearson Vue at $125 per exam.
