Why should I do CompTIA certifications instead of a
network engineering degree?

To excel in the field of network computing specifically, it is crucial to regularly renew and update your credentials to work in such a rapidly-evolving industry. Like in any IT-sector job, network engineers are measured on their Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and are required to have their skills and knowledge assessed throughout their career to earn enough CPD points to progress and access higher salaries.

Many colleges offer IT and Computing degrees with Network Engineering classes and specializations, and while a formal degree will always open doors to a great career, much of the course curriculum is regularly revised because of industry developments, meaning your skills and knowledge need updating within the year.

CPD-certified providers like CompTIA and Cisco are not only more cost-effective than a college degree but also offer pathways for learners with little to no experience and can be easily renewed. Certain network certifications such as CompTIA Network+ and CISCO CCNP are attractive, highly respected qualifications for your resume, and are frequently screened for by employers looking to build their networking team.
