Cisco Certification FAQs

Why is the Cisco certification program changing?

This initiative is built on technology transition that Cisco has driven in the networking industry. “Unleashing the full capabilities of the new network” means that there are entirely new capabilities in the network, and this fundamentally changes “how networking is done.” To fully leverage the capabilities of the new network, networking and software skills are key.

The new Cisco Certification program introduces CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE certifications that maintain the high-quality standards known to the industry yet have been streamlined based on market demands and learner preferences. The program is designed for agility, value, and leadership. It lets people choose the skills they want to develop and encourages lifelong learning.

What’s changed in the Cisco certification program?

Cisco is enhancing their certification program to bring you:

  • Streamlined and updated certification paths
