Average Salary for a Cisco CCDA
Although the Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) is an associate level certification, it is a specialised certification for those involved with designing networks. Because of the specialist nature of the certification, demand fluctuates but represents less than 1% of all advertised IT jobs; however, due to the lack people holding the certification, pay remains consistently high.
The average salary for a CCDA is £52,500 per year, with the top 10% taking home more than £70,000. In the past two years this average salary has increased by over 10%. Pay for those with this certification has shown a consistent increase over previous years, and this trend is set to continue.
