"Our ongoing partnership with Cisco Networking Academy is based on our need to keep a robust employee pipeline as we focus on ‘new in career’ talent. These students come to us with entry level Cisco certifications, are easier to train, and pick up other skills quickly. The students have proven to be invaluable assets to our business and we look forward to adding more to our workforce in the future."
