Tying Certifications to Career Paths [webinar series]

In this series, we will explore some of the Cisco Networking Academy course certifications in relation to the importance and benefits of becoming certified.

Join us as we take a deep dive into certifications such as IT Essentials, CCNA R&S, CCENT, CCNA Security, Linux and Programming. We will discuss the purpose, possible job roles and responsibilities, as well as career pathways for each.
