“Studying with Networking Academy set the foundation for my entire career, and the rest of my life! At the time, I never in a million years would’ve guessed I’d now be going on 14 years at a major technology company. I’ve been able to move up the ranks to CCNP and CCIE, and give back to others to help them develop successful careers as well. Speaking with the Cisco Live Dream Team is always one of my favorite activities! I’m not sure where I would’ve ended up without NetAcad.”

I interned at Cisco and started full time in the Sales Associates program upon graduating from UCLA. It was vital to my role as a Systems Engineer and led to me achieving my CCIE! I now lead a team of over 30 Systems Engineers across the Northwestern United States and rely on my fundamental technical knowledge to guide my technical and business strategy for the team?”

Ricardo of Bogotà, Colombia thanks Cisco NetAcad – Universidad Nacional de Colombia for help with Networking (CCNA) which led to a job as a Meraki Solutions Architect in the Communications and Technology.
“I was born and raised in a low-income family in Colombia and was the first member of my family to go to University/College, where I discovered Cisco Technologies, got my CCNA, and became a Cisco Instructor at the age of 20. Since then I’ve been related to Cisco products, working with Cisco Partners, teaching and sharing my Cisco knowledge and experience with NetAcad and Learning Partner students across multiple countries, and 9 years ago joined the amazing Cisco Family (proud to be a #cisconian).
Cisco NetAcad was my first approach to Cisco and a great way to transform my family’s life and fall in love with Cisco. Now, I live in Southern California working for the Cisco Meraki unit. Cisco helped relocate my family from Colombia to the US to keep growing, learning, supporting, and sharing this ride with others.”
