The CCT (Cisco Certified Technician) certification has three tracks that a candidate can choose to specialize in: Routing & Switching, Data Center, or TelePresence. The CCT Routing & Switching track does not have any prerequisites, but a candidate must achieve the CCT Routing & Switching certification before they can achieve a CCT Data Center certification or a CCT TelePresence certification.
IT professionals who wish to gain a CCT (Cisco Certified Technician) certification must have the skills necessary to perform onsite installation, maintenance, and support of all Cisco networking devices. The CCT is a Foundation level certification which requires candidates to be able to perform their work in collaboration with Cisco Technical Assistance Center.
The required exam for the CCT Routing & Switching certification is the 640-692 RSTECH. The required exam for the Data Center track is 640-893 DCTECH, and the exam for the TelePresence track is 640-792 TPTECH. The exams range from 60 to 70 questions, and each take 90 minutes to complete them.
Successfully passing the exams leads to a certification that lasts for three years. Renewal of the certification requires passing one of the CCT exams again, or successfully passing an advanced level certification. Examples of advanced level certifications include CCNA Wireless concentration, CCDA exams, and the CCDE Written and Practical exams.
