Cisco CCENT (100-105 ICND1) FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
Networking professionals who find themselves working on out-dated Cisco equipment or software and can't find good training should take this IT fundamentals course. If you're stuck with older equipment, you don't want a cutting-edge course – you'll have to 'unlearn' half of what's on the course. Learn only the skills you need with this course.
Yes, this course was originally meant to prepare learners for the certifying exam for Cisco's CCENT certification. That was an entry-level certification that Cisco was maintaining around 2015. The CCNA replaced the CCENT, but the information on this course is still useful for learning the fundamentals of IT and networking on Cisco tech.
If you're sure that you want a career in IT, the CCNA is the best certification to aim for after you finish this CCENT training. The CCT Collaboration, CCT Data Center, or CCT Routing & Switching could also be good certs to aim for if you want to find out if those IT specialties are interesting.
This course on IT fundamentals comes from a very specific moment in time. So, if you need an introduction to the hardware, software, protocols and syntaxes that make IT possible, all centered around 2015, you should take this course. Maybe you're working on dated equipment or with an older network – no matter why, this is a helpful time capsule.
