Yesterday a major announcement came out from Cisco Systems. It’s about the introduction of Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) to its career Certification Program. So with an introduction of Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) training and certification program, Cisco Systems is targeting even the Network Technicians who perform onsite support and maintenance for Cisco infrastructure for Routing and Switching, TelePresence and Data Center solutions. At least now I can convince my management to give me some relief as my technicians are certified by Cisco Systems to carry out some of the basic tasks in our Data Center.

Currently Cisco Systems are offering three Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) Certifications.

1)      Cisco CCT Routing & Switching certification

2)      Cisco CCT Data Center certification

3)      Cisco CCT TelePresence certification.

The Cisco CCT Routing & Switching certification which certifies that an onsite technician has the required skills and knowledge to work with Cisco Routers and Switches performing task such as troubleshooting, repairs, hot-swap of specific components, and create TAC tickets as required. The Cisco CCT Routing and Switching certification serves as a prerequisite for the Cisco CCT Data Center certification and the Cisco CCT TelePresence certification.

Exams & Recommended Training for Cisco CCT Routing & Switching certification are as follows

In my next post I will talk about Cisco CCT Data Center certification and the Cisco CCT TelePresence certification. It’s a good move from Cisco and for sure this certification is very handy and provides a solid foundation to all those technicians who are aim the sky (CCIE)
