For IT pros (or those who would like to be THAT professionals), getting the right IT certifications can lead to a great job and a high salary.
Unfortunately, those certifications sometimes carry top dollar00 draw.
For example, if you wish to turn into a Cisco Certified Internetwork Professional (CCIE) in Routing and Switching, the written test will cost $350 every attempt. You also have to pass a research exam that costs another $1, 600 per look at. If you need to prepare, taking the recommended course from a Cisco authorized learning partner can cost around $5, 000.
Although getting the documentation is likely to bring about a higher salary which will repay these costs over time, it is usually tough to manage the fees in advance — particularly if you are just starting out in your career.
There isn’t any lot you can do about the fees for the recognition exams, but the Internet has lots of resources that can make the IT documentation training much more affordable. This slideshow highlights eight of the most effective free resources available to those who find themselves preparing for an IT documentation exam. Some of these programs are just available for certain groups of people, such as veterans or those with low incomes, but most are open to anyone. Many provide practice exams that help you understand what to expect from the testing, and quite a few offer discussion forums where you can hook up with other people who are learning for or have approved their documentation tests. Most of these resources can be a great starting place for moving your THIS career forward.
