Hey guys,

So I'm nearly finishing up my ccna studies and going to be sitting the exam in about a month or so, I had a question for those with a ccna what do you guys do as part your daily duties in relations with having a ccna skillset.

    currently I'm a ccna instructor. I was offered a part time job from the university I graduated. Because of the exam experience I'm teaching my students the skills they needed for the exam. (kinda giving them pka activities different from the NetAcad activities).

    VoIP deployment and administration for state offices. That includes quite a bit of router and switch config and troubleshooting. Most of what I do delves deeper than CCNA level but so far (9 months in) I have been able to hold my own. The CCNA and BS from WGU definitely played a major part in me getting this job.

    IMO its important to remember that the ccna will only provide you with a core foundation and understanding of basic network functionality, don't expect to use everything you learned at the ccna level or that the ccna will be sufficient within a "basic role", (network warrior) is a great book which can give you an insight on what to expect but i guess its all dependent upon your actual job role.

    That being said, a method which im currently using to retain my ccna skills is by dedicating 1 - 2 hours a day just going over past notes as well as using packet tracer/gns3 to practice basic labs and also helping others out where i can on forums like this.

    I hope this answers your question and that i haven't gone of in to much of a tangent .
