Cisco Career Certifications are a type of IT professional certifications created by Cisco Systems for their products. Pearson VUE administers tests required to obtain such certification. The certification breaks down into five levels: Entry, Associate, Professional, Expert, and Architect along with targeted certifications for Specialist and Technician. These can divide into nine different subject tracks depending on the certification level: Routing & Switching, Design, Security, Service Provider, Service Provider Operations, Data Center, Voice, Wireless and Video.

 

The Cisco Networking Academy teaches Cisco skills. People do not need to participate in Cisco Networking Academy classes as a prerequisite to taking an exam or obtaining a certification, although many recommend it. The program offers classes aimed at CCNA (Routing and Switching), CCNP (Routing and Switching) and CCNA Security certifications.

Collegiate institutions also offer courses about Cisco, and Cisco Learning Partners has training available, such as the Cisco 360 Learning Program for CCIE and the Cisco Learning Network. All certifications have official books called Certification Guides released by Cisco Press.
