Network Administration Training - Network Administrator Certification
If you are interested in becoming a network administrator, you need to think carefully about the training you need and how you start your career. Many people take their first job and during the first nine months they start training in order to be able to get certification in network administration.
Network Administration Certification
If you decide to go down the pathway of network administration certification, you can choose to gain certification using the particular hardware and/or software you are working with, for example Novell Networks or Cisco, or you can choose to gain generic certification, for example using CompTIA's Network+. Generic network administration certification gives you the advantage that it is applicable to all possible networking situations, but you may be able to gain more and more in-depth certification in vendor certification schemes. You may find that your particular installation has a pre-defined certification pathway that they expect you to take, but whatever you decide to do, certification will certainly help your career.
Network Administration Career Prospects
As computer installations including networking proliferate, then the demand for network administration is increasing. Larger companies are using more and more complex networking, linking LANS and Wide Area Networks with Internet and intranet links; as these platforms become more complex, so there is a greater need for network administrators. However, there is also growth for working with smaller companies on a consultancy basis. There are many small companies that have local area networks with access to the Internet, who do not need anyone on a full-time basis, but do need help and maintenance on a part-time basis. This kind of job is increasingly attractive, and gives you the chance to widen your experience with many different installations and network administration duties.
