Cisco Partner exams

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

Working in the consulting field generally means that you partner with big vendors i.e. Cisco, Microsoft, Citrix etc. Generally these companies require you have certain certifications to maintain that partner status. Most of these companies just use their normal everyday certifications i.e. have X number  of MCSE’s for Microsoft partner level X. What annoys me is that Cisco on top of this has their own specialty partner exams they make you do. It would be simple if to be certified to sell voice you need to have 3 CCVP’s or something, but no. You need three CCVP’s and then each one has to do 3-4 specialty exams on top of this. It really is a pain and frankly I don’t see the point. Why should I have to do my CCDA and then a design specialty exam, isn’t the CCDA the design specialty certification anyways?!?
