Cisco Professional Certs

A quick snapshot of the Cisco Professional Certs

In the past month, a new voice has popped up in the Cisco Learning Network blogs. The poster is identified only as Danielle (user name DLisius), and the name of the blog is “Certifications for Success.” A little spelunking via LinkedIn tells me that Danielle is a Marketing Intern at Cisco, and I’m guessing she’s been tasked with provided a “gentle introduction” to Cisco certification for those who might be curious, or just starting out, with the California networking giant’s certification programs and offerings.¬† Her latest post is dated June 27, and entitled “Know Your Certification Options.” It does a nice¬† job of presenting the current Cisco certs outside the specialist arena in tabular form. I’ve reproduced the bulk of that table in even more abbreviated form below, omitting the Cisco Pinnacle certification — the Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) which would show up as the sole occupant of a sixth column labeled “Architect” with a single occupied cell under the Design heading (the only category for which the CCAr is currently available; I skipped this table elaboration — Ms. Lisius presents it as a single two-row entry before the four column layout for the other non-specialist certs show below in the original).

Cisco Certs from Entry through Expert Level
PATH ENTRY ASSOCIATE PROFESSIONAL EXPERT
Collaboration CCIE Collaboration
Data Center CCENT CCNA Data Center CCNP Data Center CCIE Data Center
Design CCENT CCDA CCDP CCDE
Routing & Switching CCENT CCNA R&S CCNP CCIE R&S
Security CCENT CCNA Security CCNP Security CCIE Security
Storage Networking CCIE SAN
Service Provider CCNA SP CCNP SP CCIE SP
SP Operations CCENT CCNA SP Ops CCNP SP Ops CCIE SP Ops
Video CCNA Video
Voice CCENT CCNA Voice CCNP Voice CCIE Voice
Wireless CCENT CCNA Wireless CCNP Wireless CCIE Wireless

It’s a nice compact roadmap to the bulk of the Cisco Professional Certifications, and worth consulting and using for that reason. Nice job, Ms. Lisius! Enjoy!
