To meet the rising demands of IT staff to be able to meet evolving networking requirements, Cisco recently announced its Cisco Certified Technician as the latest edition to its Career Certification Program. The CCT training and certification programs aim to prepare technicians who perform onsite maintenance and support for Cisco infrastructure including routers and data centers.The CCT training is easily accessible to participants when needed, and teach entry level technicians specific skills for installing, verifying, replacing and troubleshooting Cisco networking equipment. Training sessions use a combination of text, audio narration, graphics and videos to prepare participants through numerous short lessons.David Lamb, director of technical services at Cisco said, "This new certification ensures that our third-party maintenance partners have a high level of technical expertise that enables technicians to have a clear differentiator in the field."CompTIA is also working to provide young IT professionals with career assistance through its CompTIA A+ certification. The program is designed to provide foundational knowledge and skills needed for a career in PC support, Computer Weekly reported.In an interview with the website, program participant Dujon Walsham, a 23 year old IT consultant, said he turned to the CompTIA training to learn more details about how computers work that his college courses were not offering."I made the right decision of studying certifications instead of going to university," Walsham said. "I've no doubt there's a lot of value in university study, but in my personal opinion CompTIA A+ is far more valuable than an A-level, or even a degree for that matter, particularly in terms of actually landing a job."
