No certification level can or will entitle you to download IOS images. You need to have a paid support contract with Cisco to be allowed to download IOSes.

But apart from this, congratulations on achieving your CCNA certification! Having plans for some higher certification already?

Best regards,

Hi Vickie,

Like other big organizations, I've seen SYMANTEC employees logged into NetPro discussing problems and solutions.

Search for them and find out if they can download the IOS in your behalf.

Hi Vickie,

As note by Peter, you will need to have valid Service contract to be able to download Cisco IOS softwars.
