Requirement – This Certification does not require any prior programming or statistical skills.

Network Architect

Network architects are among the best-compensated workers in the networking industry. They design and build networks, including Wide Area Networks (WANs), Local Area Networks (LANs), and intranets. They also manage existing networks, analyze their performance, and devise solutions for improved networking. Since more and more businesses are relying on cloud-based infrastructure, network architects should be in demand for years and years to come.

Network Security Manager

Since networks are prime targets of hackers, network security managers strive to ensure the network is as secure as possible. In addition to monitoring threats from hackers, network security managers handle more mundane tasks, like troubleshooting problems with the network and issuing credentials to workers that need to access the network.

Network and Computer Systems Administrators

Network and computer systems administrators have the important task of handling the day-to-day operations of computer networks. This includes installing networks, organizing computer systems within an organization, and providing support to people that need to utilize the network.

Wireless Network Engineer

As the job title indicates, wireless network engineers are responsible for designing and implementing wireless networks. This includes designing Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs), installing hardware, and utilizing the appropriate wireless protocols for WLAN design.

System Engineer

A system engineer is responsible for managing the network-related systems of an organization. Part of this job requires engineers to develop new and more efficient systems. Other tasks include inspecting software, performing standard testing, reviewing security measures, and analyzing current systems for efficiency and reliability.

 Database Administrator

A database administrator’s job includes many different tasks. Their first priority is to maintain databases for businesses and organizations. This includes ensuring that databases perform as they should and that they are secure from outside threats. Likewise, database administrators ensure that the data in the databases is readily available to approved users on the network.

Network Service Technician

Network service technicians are responsible for designing computer networks and installing their components. In that process, they troubleshoot network failures and also work to find bottlenecks that slow down network performance. As such, much of this job involves testing software, maintaining hardware, and ensuring peripheral devices are running as they should.

 Network Security Administrator

A network security administrator is usually required to have at least an associate’s degree (though a bachelor’s degree is often preferred) and is responsible for installing network security protocols. Additionally, network security administrators troubleshoot security issues as they arise and perform daily administrative tasks with regard to an organization’s network.

Telecommunications Specialist

As a telecommunications specialist, you’ll be responsible for programming voice and data services to work on an organization’s network. This includes establishing voice and data interfaces, developing tools that enable remote access, and verifying that services work properly. These workers also program and reprogram circuits and equipment as needed.
