1  General discussions / Certifications and IT jobs/Salaries / Community College Certificate Programs? on: June 08, 2008, 12:46:04 PM
Hello, I've been reading this forum quite awhile and found some interesting reads. My question is concerning Community Colleges and their Certificate Programs. For instance, my local community college next to Texas A&M has a one year certificate program for a "Certified Network Administrator". Another is a one semester "Certified Data Entry Operator". Now I know these certificates are definitely not as effective in the IT industry as say a MCSE/MCSA, etc... Would these certificate programs provide any room for even an entry level job? I'm actually enrolled on a degree program for CTIS at the moment, but with only 5 more classes this semester, I can apply for the   "Network Administrator" certificate...Just being a community college certificate, would this certification be frowned upon by potential employers?, or would it add to my chances of actually getting my foot in the door to a beginner level IT/Networking job/career? I've never had an IT job and it is my dream to do so, I am very confused as to which route to go for certifications when it comes to having a chance of success in the IT/networking industry...I would really hate to of wasted precious time with this certificate for Network Administration when I could've been focused on something more worth while. However, I do plan on enrolling in Cisco courses this upcoming semester as well. Thats another thing with this community college also. When you complete Cisco 1,2,3,4 & "Computer Math". You are certified as a "Cisco Academy Graduate", but ofcourse the CCNA does not come with the completion of the certificate program...Are these courses worth pursuing? Or are they merely a waste of time when I should be focusing on something else?
