If you are a network administrator seeking to move up in your profession and earn more money, Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification can be a vital step towards meeting your goals.

The test shows that you can install, configure, protect and troubleshoot route and switched networks of small to medium size. It also demonstrates your ability to implement and verify connections to remote sites in a wide area network (WAN).
