Are the new Cisco Data Centre certifications right for you?

04 January 2013

With many learning options and qualification routes available it can be difficult for the IT professional to know which is the right path to take. Deciding which qualification level or industry specific certificate to take is equally as challenging.

The recent shake up from Cisco of their data centre accreditations adds another consideration to the mix. However Cisco claim their new set of qualifications provide the student with relevant, job-ready skills that are focused on the real-life tasks a data centre professional will perform.

With up-to-date technologies and practises the new Cisco data centre certificates include modules on hardware components, specific maintenance programs, calibration, monitoring and evaluation of servers that operate within a data centre environment.

From the employer’s perspective, these skills are invaluable. Employing certified and trained professionals to design, implement and support modern data centres is of huge benefit to any business and as such, an individual with these skills would be a valued asset.

The new certificates aren’t for beginners either. Cisco believe those already working in the data centre field can benefit from the revamped qualifications. With the fast-paced and ever changing IT landscape and with the shift to the ‘cloud’, experienced data centre professionals will see their current roles and day-to-day tasks changing. The new Cisco certificates could arm them with the new knowledge needed to evolve with their job requirements in 2013 and beyond.

If you are considering a career as a data centre professional, a Cisco data centre certificate could give you the starting point you need. Alternatively, if you feel a brush up on your existing data centre skills are what is needed to propel your career to the next step, take a look at the Cisco qualifications on offer from Total Training Solutions.
