@Wesbryan and @Anthony Sequeira I already hold the CompTIA A+ Network+ ad Security+. I am almost ready to take CCNA since I have been studying for a while. My passion is CS (Cyber Security) and for one hand I feel I am not using my time correctly obtaining CCNA. However it will validate two college credits which is awesome not to spend 2 semesters at school.
Webinar Follow up
Hello Victor! Thank you so much for attending the Webinar and for your great questions.
Congrats on your Cyber Security aspirations - It sounds like you have a real passion for that and it is wonderful, especially since Cyber Security is one of the scorching hot areas of IT right now - and for the remaining foreseeable future.
Yeah - CCNA CANNOT HURT YOU - it can only help you to see how Cisco Systems implements networking features into the enterprise infrastructure.
I presume that once you clear your CCNA - you are back after for Cyber Security centric topics.
Let us know here the minute you have a question - or if you would like to contact me directly - it is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Congrats on your progress so far and keep up the great work!

@Victor-Rosa Just to back up what @Anthony-Sequeira-0 said above, not only is the CCNA a highly recognisable cert which almost any employer will value, but the content is stuff you're going to use almost every day. For CS you need a strong understanding of networking - Net + with CCNA is an excellent coverage of the theory and practical aspects.
If you want to study further with the networking aspect of security CCNP Security is also a fantastic progression. You've made an excellent choice - good luck with the exam!
