Hi all !!

I am new here and don't know much about cicso certifications. I heard a lot about ccna and planning to prepare for ccna.

Is it possible if someone guides me about ccna certifications. Actually I an curious to know about all cisco certifications and where individual stands. It will be really great if I know level of each certification from lowest to highest. I think ccna stands in between. I heard ccnp, ccdp, ccip, ccsp, ccvp but unfortunately don't know much. Woul you please like to help me?

cheers !!

Hi -

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Cisco! :-)

Check out Cisco's official Certifications Overview for information about all of the different levels of certification:

Essentially, there are three levels of certification.

Associate: Includes the CCENT, CCNA, and CCDA

Professional: Includes CCNP, CCDP, CCSP, CCIP, CCVP, and Specialist certifications

Expert: Includes several CCIE designations

All Professional-level certifications require the CCNA as a prerequisite. If you have hands-on networking experience, preferably with Cisco devices, this might be the place to start. If you need to get up to speed on some fundamentals or if you are new to networking, start with the CCENT.

Good luck! Let us know how you do!

Hope this helps.
