Here’s the list of Top 10 IT Certification for Network Engineers:
- AWS Certified Solutions Architect
There are thousands of reasons to pursue an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Certification. First off, the popularity of cloud-based tech and services has increased in recent years and shows no signs of slowing down. As more organizations turn to the cloud to help them save time, money, and even space, the demand for IT pros who can leverage the cloud will soar.

- CompTIA CASP

- CCA Data Analyst
There’s even more data available to organizations this year, and employees need to know how they can use it to their advantage. Welcome to the era of Big Data! Companies need IT pros who can leverage the technologies that store, mine, and pull all that data so that it can be compiled and presented.
