CISCO Certification

Program Description: The purpose of this Cisco Specialist certificate is to teach students the skills needed to design, build, and maintain small to medium-size networks. This provides opportunity to enter the workforce and/or further their education and training in the computer networking field. High school graduation or GED is required for admission to this program.

Employment Opportunities: According to the Information Technology Association of America (ITAA) employers will create a demand in this country for roughly 1.6 million IT workers this year. With demand for appropriately skilled people far exceeding supply, half of these positions--843,328--will likely go unfilled. In a total U.S. IT workforce of 10 million, that shortfall means one job in every dozen will be vacant.
