For Immediate Release
NSK Inc. IT Associate Receives CCENT Certification
Associate at Boston-based IT Consulting firm is now certified in small network implementation and management
Boston, MA, March 17, 2010 - One of NSK Inc's IT Associates, Michael McGowan, recently announced that he has received the CCENTTM certification from Cisco®. CCENT, short for Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician, validates skills in installing and managing small enterprise network systems, and is a stepping stone towards the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA®) certification. McGowan's new credentials demonstrate his knowledge and experience in data networks, IP addressing, wired and wireless networks, and network security in the small enterprise sector.
McGowan states "It took me about four months to prepare for the exam." His efforts have paid off immensely. "Having a CCENT certification will help me provide better support with internet/networking, troubleshooting, and configurations for NSK and its clients." Although time consuming, McGowan says, "The experience was totally worth it, as it is the largest industry-wide certification." He will spend the next four months working towards his CCNA certification.
McGowan isn't the only NSK member who is Cisco certified. Ben R. Howard, a Senior IT Associate, holds his CCNA certification. Howard says that "Having the CCNA Security certification ensures that NSK meets the standards set forth by Cisco to have an understanding not only of how to configure a range of Cisco products, but to recognize security issues and how to effectively configure and deploy the devices to address the issues." NSK Inc is consistently expanding their knowledge base, and with two employees now Cisco certified the company can manage a multitude of network systems for their growing client base.
