Cisco is the leading manufacturer of network routers, switches and related technology. It’s worth almost $100 billion (and last week that was twice as much as Facebook). Cisco sponsors a line of IT Professional certifications. There are five levels of certification and eight different paths: Routing & Switching, Design, Network Security, Service Provider, Service Provider Operations, Storage Networking, Voice, and Wireless. The Cisco Networking Academy is part social responsibility, part workforce development, and part demonstration product. With more than one million enrolled students and about 40,000 assessments weekly, it is also the biggest classroom in the world. Cisco partners with more than 11,000 high schools, technical schools, colleges, and training organizations worldwide to deliver advanced networking skills. Blending onsite and online learning, Cisco Academies model innovative simulation-based instruction and assessment.
