Cisco network certifications are gaining popularity among ICT students due to an increasing demand for these qualifications by industry employers. The aim of this paper is to determine how useful CCNA knowledge, skills and the qualification itself are to the ICT industry. There was a specific focus on roles relating to telecommunications/ networking. Wintec students working in this industry and studying CCNA were interviewed to evaluate which aspects of the course related to their employment. Data was obtained about the relevance that interviewees felt the course had for them, for new employees and for their employers. Relevant comments by participants about the course structure, course content and possible benefits to their career are also included.
