What Cert to do Next? Entry Level

ProFamousProFamous Member Posts: 63 ■■□□□□□□□□
Hello all,

I have both my CompTIA A+ and CCENT, wondering what to do next. I was thinking the Security+, but I'm not sure what value it holds. I will definitely be doing my CCNA in the future, however I want to do a non-Cisco cert before I move onto that.


MCSA? RHCSA? Security+? CEH?

I am looking for more of a system administration type of position, but I am not sure if it is wise to try for a MCSA/RHCSA at my level, would easier certs be advisable first?

Thank you!

    I think you should complete the CCNA while the CCENT material is fresh (assuming you've taken it recently) and then move on to MCSA/E if that's the direction you want to go in. Security+ or CEH would be good if you want to throw some security knowledge in there.
