What is it with Cisco Certification? Why is it necessary for a Network engineer to have certification?
Among the many essentials of a Cisco Network engineer, we have always found a few reasons for professionals to certify. Network professionals have a high demand. Usually HR professionals filter them on the basis of certification criteria. Can you believe that?
So if you dont have a certification, you dont get shown in their list? Yes you do. Your key skills will be useful to have you displayed in a HRs filter-list. But definitely there are a few advantages. Lot of professionals feel the need not to certify. Why certify when I am getting paid already Lets talk about it.
Salaries: Something that we all work for. Well almost all of us do work for salary. Network engineers with cisco certifications end up demanding higher salaries. Believe me, annual salaries of Cisco Certified professionals are better than those who are not certified, approximately, 5- 9% over those who are working and are not certified. On average, a CCNA earns Rs. 2,50,000 p.a., and a Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) earns Rs. 4,50,000. Now do the math.
Miles ahead: Professionals who are certified have an definite advantage over those with an equivalent level of hands-on field experience. we agree, certifications are considered secondary to relevant experience to qualify for a job. The top criteria used to qualify for a job opportunity is the ability to perform a job. Majority of IT companies consider certifications as medium to high priority for evaluating candidates. Cisco Certifications confirm that you have the theoretical and practical knowledge in required areas. These may including routing and switching, security, voice, Service provider and wireless technologies.
Job Hopping: Networking skills are in demand across a variety of industries, including high tech, manufacturing, finance, healthcare, media, transportation, and utilities apart from the regular IT and dot com companies. We require specialized certified engineers like the CCIEs. Dedicated wireless specialist (CCIE Wireless) roles are expected to increase worldwide from 36% today to 66% within next 2 years. Dedicated security roles (CCIE Security) are expected in 80% of the worldwide companies studied within the next 3 years. Today, 46% of the surveyed companies have these roles. 65% of companies expect dedicated voice specialists (CCIE Voice) within 3 years while only 40% currently have dedicated roles today. Video communications traffic, including video over instant messaging and video calling will increase ten-fold within the next 2 years from now, increasing the demand for video network specialists.
Certification training: We need mentor-ship for getting success at certifications. Apart from the many self-study options available to us today including Video-on-Demand or Class-on-demand as it is popularly known, students still need to take Instructor-led trainings. This helps to ease the process of understanding new concepts and technologies. Its essential for someone take us through the various scenarios simulating the real world challenges. The lab makes it easy for beginners to get their much required hands on experience and learn in a safe-to-try environment. Trust me, real world does not gives us multiple chances to succeed.
The advantage to certified professionals has always been there from day-1 of any job that you may be in. Be it networking, or any other IT skill that you wish to pursue as a career. Freshers out of college, are required to perform from day-1 of their employment. Its not about Learning on the job any more. its about performing from day-1.
