certification, Cisco, HP, MASE
Hi all, so you have your Cisco CCNA or CCNP or possibly even CCIE and you want to work with one of the other network vendors in order to say … expand your horizons or just to know what is out there. But you don’t want all of your learning and studying of the dark side to be in vain. No you want to get some paper out of the deal (money or certs, your call). HP has a way to make your transition to their side (dark or otherwise) a bit easier. The link below is to the HP certification fasttrack paths that is has setup to pave the way for network certified people that currently know their major competitors products (Cisco) to also get their cert.
The link provides information for newcomers as well but lays out the needed training plan for any level of certification all the way up to their master level cert, the MASE. The master level cert is HPs equivalent of the CCIE, although much easier to obtain if for no other reason than it doesn’t require you to do an 8 hour lab to prove your skills.
Until next time,
