Are you looking to move up from the help desk or past an entry-level network position? Getting your CCENT can be a great way to show your knowledge of computer networking and advance to a networking administrator role. And while the CCENT isn’t as widely known as the CCNA, it’s a good preliminary step to the higher-level networking certification.

Besides helping you get a foot in the door with top employers, TEKsystems offers resources to prepare for IT certifications. We offer free online classes, including certification-track classes to help you prepare for the CCENT test and several related network technician credentials.
