The CCT Routing & Switching certification is a tremendously important Cisco certification because it is required before a technician can advance to CCT Data Center or CCT TelePresence. In essence, achieving this certification is a prerequisite foundation for any CCT’s career, and if they hope to have any career mobility, they must demonstrate efficiency in this certification first.
After achieving the Cisco entry level CCENT routing and switching certification, technicians can choose to advance to associate, professional, and expert level routing and switching certifications. These certifications include the CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE Routing and Switching.
For entry level technicians, the Cisco 640-692 RSTECH exam is required. During the exam, technicians will have to prove that they have the skills which will enable them to perform support and maintenance of onsite Cisco routers, operating environments, and switches. They must also be up to date on knowledge concerning different models of routers and switches, accessories, cabling, interfaces, IOS Software, and Cisco Command Line Interface. In order to pass the exam, potential technicians can use TestsLive dot com and complete the Cisco recommended training course, “Supporting Cisco Routing & Switching Network Devices v1.0.”
Certification will last for three years, before renewal becomes necessary. The technician may gain renewal through passing the CCT RSTECH, DCTECH or TPTECH exams. They may also achieve renewal through passing ICND1, CCNA, CCDA, or Cisco Specialist exams.
