I just finished reading a brief interview that Terry Slattery did with Train Signal Training on Cisco Certifications, Careers, Training and More (link to the interview). As usual, I find Terry’s comments and advice are worth reviewing. He discusses the value of certifications as well as changes in the certification process in the networking industry. He touches on various types of training and training resources, and talks a bit more about CCIE, CCDE, and the new CCA options from Cisco.
