This CCNA certification indicates a professional level of knowledge and a foundation in basic networking, and is the first level of possible Cisco certifications. CCNA Routing and Switching focuses on giving you the skills necessary to install, operate, and troubleshoot small and medium branch office enterprise networks. When you become CCNA certified, you’ll be proficient in operating IP data networks, LAN switching technologies, IP addressing, IP routing technologies, IP services such as DHCP, NAT, ACLs, FHRP, Syslog, SNMP v2/v3, network device security, troubleshooting, and WAN technologies.
The average salary of a CCNA can vary based on job title and amount of experience, as well as what state and area where you work. According to the Infosec Institute, the median national salary for a CCNA with 1-4 years of experience is about $53,000. As you earn more certifications, gain experience, and work your way to higher positions, you’ll see your salary rise higher and higher.
Your CCNA Routing and Switching certification will be valid for 3 years. To renew, you can simply re-take the CCNA exam, or you can take any associate-level exam (except ICND1). However, a great choice for most professionals interested in continuing to develop their skills is to take a higher certification exam. You can use a higher certification to extend the life of your CCNA certification; that is, if you earn a higher Cisco certification, such as CCIE, both credentials will be valid until the expiration of the higher exam.
