Cisco Has Announced Three Additional CCNA Certifications -

But To Earn Them, You've Got To Be CCNA Certified, So Get Started Today!

Cisco has announced three brand-new CCNA-level Certifications:

CCNA Security

CCNA Voice

CCNA Wireless

Those links go to new resource pages on the main website, where I'll post free tutorials and video training for all three certifications in the days and weeks ahead - be sure to bookmark them! (There's a new CCNA Security tutorial on that particular page.)

These new certifications are going to be a tremendous career boost to those who earn them.

Why? Just look at these statistics!

Security: Right now, 46% of companies included in the survey have a position dedicated to security - that's going to almost double over the next five years to 80%.

Voice: Currently, 40% of surveyed customers have a voice specialist. That number will rise to 69% in the next five years.

Wireless: While 33% of surveyed companies currently have a position dedicated to wireless, that value will double over the next five years to 66%.

(Stats were arrived at by Forrester Consulting during a study sponsored by Cisco. You can get a copy here.)

Those statistics tell a simple tale:

Network admins who have knowledge and certification in security, wireless, and voice will have a huge advantage over network admins who do not.

That's why Cisco is introducing these new certifications, and exactly why I'll be releasing Study Packages for all three of these specializations, beginning in September!

There's one detail you need to take care of now, though.

To earn any of these CCNA specialist certifications, you must earn your CCNA first, by either the one-exam (640-802) path or the two exam path (ICND 1 and 2).

This announcement by Cisco makes it more important than ever to be CCNA certified. Be ready to earn these new certifications by earning your CCNA now!

Thousands of CCNA candidates around the world have used my CCNA Study Package to do just that. Take five minutes to read this page - it's more important than ever.

The Ultimate CCNA Study Package

Over the rest of the year, I'll be releasing Study Packages for CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, and CCNA Wireless. While I'm working on those, you need to be working on your CCNA to take advantage of these vital new certifications.
