Today our world of technology is growing by leaps and bounds. I just can't seem to keep up with the technological advancements. Earlier this week I was reading about the IT Career field. Originally when I started college this was the career path that I was on. One thing led to another and I dropped out of college and never did reach my professional goals. I still think about going back and trying to get an IT certification. For those of you who don't know IT professionals work with such things as computer hardware, networking equipment, telecommunications equipment, multimedia and the software that functions on this equipment. All this reading about the IT career field really got me wondering what it would take for me to get certified as an IT professional. I decided to do some research and came across the Cisco certification program. Cisco offers some really amazing classes. There are three levels of certification which include Associate, Professional and Expert. Expert being the highest level of achievement. Cisco also offers a variety of ways for you to achieve these certifications. You can train through the Cisco learning partners program or the Cisco Learning Academy Program. They also offer free online learning, which you can access at any time. How great is that? All this new and amazing technology is so fascinating to me. This would be a great career for me to choose. I feel that if I was certified through Cisco as an IT professional my career path would be set in stone. Who knows what other kind of career opportunities this training could open up for me in the future. There is such a huge demand for IT professionals I would never have to worry about being without a job. My career path and my financial future would be set in stone and secure. If you're like me and are interested in an IT career check out the Cisco certification program. You won't be disappointed.
