    Do the A+ and Network+ certifications apply towards earning the CCENT and/or CCNA for the most recent 2013 versions?

      Todd, I checked with our Cisco sales engineers. They said while there’s a very logical transition from CompTIA to Cisco (especially Network+ to CCENT or CCNA R&S), there is no formal certification path. CompTIA certifications help you understand fundamental IT concepts from a vendor-neutral standpoint, which is beneficial when moving into the world of Cisco certifications.
