Microsoft and Cisco Certifications

Obtaining IT certifications from highly regarded companies such as Microsoft and Cisco can help boost the resume for those just entering the networking field. Courses include topics from various certifications such as Microsoft MCSA certification and Cisco CCNA certification, however, to enrich the networking experience, our program adds non-certification subjects to expose students to additional real-world IT solutions and emerging technologies. Students need to pass exam(s) in order to obtain Microsoft certifications and Cisco certifications. These exams are administered outside of SCIT.
