10 things to know about the new Cisco-certification requirements
Cisco’s network certification lineup has undergone a major overhaul.
Starting today, the company has added a new coding-focused track to its offerings, and streamlined its core designations: Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA), Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP), and Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE).
Gaps in the company’s certification curriculum became clear more than a year ago, according to Derek Winchester, CEO of consultancy Gotcha-6 Technologies and a member of Cisco’s CCIE Advisory Council. Job descriptions that hiring managers were posting to attract network professionals increasingly included many more skills than the CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE were providing.
