The modern world thrives on the internet, even if there are some bizarre unintended consequences from tying everything to an Ethernet cable or wireless signal. And as networks grow, the demand for people who know how to design, build, maintain, and protect them becomes even more important. The 2021 Cisco CCNA & CCNP Certification Training Bundle will get you the certifications you need to become a professional network engineer.
Both certifications were created by the networking company Cisco as they realized their products were becoming more complex, while educational materials weren't keeping up. For IT professionals, that's meant getting two key certifications, starting with the Cisco Certified Network Associate certification, or CCNA. Tied to the #200-301 exam, a CCNA certifies that you're able to set up, run, and maintain a network for a small or medium-sized business.
The first course in this bundle explores that in detail with 150 lectures across nearly 47 hours discussing routing protocols, WAN technology, device monitoring and management and security fundamentals. Whether you're new to IT or just want to update your skills, it's perfect for all levels.
Then the bundle turns to the Cisco Certified Network Professional certification, or CCNP. This expands on what you learned in the CCNA course to apply it to much larger networks, adding network architecture lessons, how to employ virtualization for users, and network infrastructure and assurance. Even if you're not going for your CCNP, it's information worth knowing for any IT professional or engineer who will deals with networks.
Courses are run by ITU Online Training, which has won a ton of industry awards, including honors at the Best in Biz Awards and the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.
The demand for IT networking professionals is only growing, and a certification will help you move forward in your career, or launch a new one. The 2021 Cisco CCNA & CCNP Certification Training Bundle is normally $198, yet right now you can save 74% and get both courses for just $49.99.
