Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A standard “Associates Degree” usually has several LERs (Liberal education requirements) such as history, writing, and social science classes as part of the package. <b><i>Depending where you are looking for a job</i></b> a CCNA might be considered an <b><i>equivalent</i></b>, for the purpose of the needed training, and in some cases again <b><i>depending on the nature of the job</i></b>, it might be better that an associates degree, but I don’t think it IS considered an Associates Degree. Here is a decent explanation of what makes up an <a href=”http://www.answers.com/Associate’s%20degree”>associates degree</a>
Good Luck!

    No its not an Associate degree or equal to it. However their are Colleges that will accept your real life experiance and CCNA certification leading to an AAS degree as credits. Yes real credits.

    No the CCNA is a 35 hour class at best whereas a Associates Degree is 2 years worth of credits.  I think it is actually 80 credits.
