    Hello all,

    I've got the CCENT, but what does this map to in the below list?

    https://www.gov.uk/what-different-qualification-levels-mean/list-of-qualification-levels

    I've had a google and I think I found that Network+ and CCNA are both level 3. So that would imply that CCENT is too, as it overlaps (to some extent) these two.

    Thanks, in advance for any help.

    IT certifications are not qualications such as a diploma or degree.

    A CCENT is usually classed as a beginner certification.

    Yes, I know that it's not equivalent to a degree or a diploma.

    If you click on the link, you'll see that a level 3 qualification isn't a degree/diploma.
    I asked whether the CCENT is equivalent to a level 3 qual.

    An "A Level" is "Level 3" which is a two year full time further education course (last time I checked), as in 6th Form or College. No way can a CCNA be the equivalent?

    TBH, that list looks academic and .gov.uk recognised vocational courses. I don't think .gov.uk recognises IT Certs as "qualifications".
