Again this is a workshop that did not take place, we were even meant to have a guy come in to talk about Cisco but have not seen this happen.
From what I’ve seen, Cisco certifications are industry recognised proof that you are knowledgable in certain networking areas (depending on what certifications you have done).
Using “cisco” as a keyword in TradeMe Jobs and no other search criteria yields 14 results. Because of this I believe it to be likely that Cisco certifications are relevant to looking to get jobs that include networking.
I personally have no great interest in working through the certification process as I am not looking to enter that area of the tech industry.
