I am taking some classes that deal with cisco and placed at one of our events, which is allowing me to  go to nationals.  At nationals they are offering the MTA networking and security certifications.  With going through the cisco stuff it is pretty much the same, but not as detailed, but for a person just looking into networking and if they want to go that route this is the way to go.
