Certification & Exam

Cisco Certified Technician (CCT)
Cisco Certified Technicians have the skills to diagnose, restore, repair, and replace critical Cisco networking and system devices at customer sites. Technicians work closely with the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) to quickly and efficiently resolve support incidents. Cisco authorized training is available online and can be completed in multiple short sessions, enabling technicians to stay productive in the field. Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) certification is available in multiple technology tracks, providing an opportunity for Cisco support technicians to expand their area of expertise.

The certification can be achieved by passing the following Cisco exam:
010-151 DCTECH

Supporting Cisco Data Center Networking Devices v3.0 (010-151 DCTECH) is a 90-minute exam that consists of 65–75 questions and validates a technician’s competency in the following areas; basic Cisco NX-OS configuration, features of UCS Manager and Cisco Integrated Management Controller (CIMC), and Cisco Data Center products and hardware components with an emphasis on the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS).

The curriculum covers remedial services (HW break fix) on Cisco Data Center products, including hardware replacement, software and configuration backup and restore, check safety and environmental requirement, recognize connection type and cable requirement, and perform basic physical layer troubleshooting. The Cisco Certified Technician Data Center (CCT Data Center) should be competent in the following areas; basic Cisco NX-OS configuration, Cisco Data Center products and hardware components.
