  1. If you’re going to be an IT specialist, knowing your way around Cisco Systems hardware and networks isn’t a bad place to start. In fact, noted human resources firm Robert Half found that IT specialization was not only among the most in-demand skills sought by employers today, but Cisco network administration skills in particular added approximately 9 percent to a tech professional’s salary.

    With this Cisco Certified Network Associate & Professional Certification course bundle, available for $65.99 (93% off) in the TechSpot Store, you’ll get access to two comprehensive courses that’ll take you deep inside all the installation, management and troubleshooting needs of Cisco Networking systems, including:

    • Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching: Become a certified Cisco network engineer, specialist or administrator as you learn how to configure and run a fully-routed and switched network. Understand IP, OSPF and ACLs, configure IPv4 and IPv6, secure a VPN and more with this all-inclusive course.
    • Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Routing and Switching: Learn how to find solutions to often complex network problems. You’ll implement Cisco IP Routing & Cisco IP Switching and start living and breathing all the virtual networking tools at your disposal.

    This training would usually run over $1,000, but you can get it at a fraction of that cost in the TechSpot Store.

    Ok now how do I get the certificate itself? Or do I just say I read this?

    These deals give you access to course material, usually self paced e-learning courses, sometimes the chance to "sit in" on online classes. They do not however cover the cost for the exam(s) required to gain certification, and the certification(s) of course are subject to passing said exams.

    Why isn't education absolutely free like jesus said it should be?

    CCNP and CCNA do not carry the "cache" it used to. When I last did my refresher course the teacher was reading off the answers so everyone passes. I refuse to be "that guy" so I patiently waited until the end of the last day and met with the instructor and asked if I could retake the test without him reading me the answers and he did and I passed. But when I asked why he is doing this his reply was, "We had students from the three largest companies in the city and they wont send more students back for training unless they guarantee that they will pass.

    It's "paper MCSE's" all over again the same as it was when Microsoft stopped caring about their certifications.

    That's really too bad to hear that being the state of affairs, kudos for doing it legit.

    I would add the MCSE to the CCNA & CCNP as having diminished over the years. Like any other job, as the market becomes saturated with certificate holders, the price goes way down despite consideration of how many have little to no real world experience.
