There has been quite a bit of reorganization in the world of Cisco certifications. This article discusses a major update that involves the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA), one of the most sought-after certifications in IT.
This certification is essential for advancing your career in IT. The CCNA is a recognized certification that validates your knowledge of networking basics.
In the last year, the CCNA has undergone a major overhaul. Yes! To be a CCNA, you only need to sit for one exam. This is a stark contrast to sitting for multiple exams in previous years.
The following certifications will be replaced by the new CCNA: CCNA Cloud
CCNA Data Center
CCNA Routing & Switching
CCNA Service Provider
The certification pathway is now very different. In the past, if a person was accredited for CCNA Security certification would also lead to CCNP Security. The CCNA covers all bases and you can now choose to specialize in any of the routes at CCNP. The new CCNP does not require a CCNA, although it could be helpful.
Here are the CCNP routes
CCNP Service Provider
CCNP Data Center
Cisco Certified DevNet Professional
