I have overslept this one a bit, but i will catch up quickly from now on again.
In the past, there have been several new certifications around. Seems like Cisco is doing a lot to set new goals apart from CCIE. Formerly this has been the highest level of certification. But seems like Cisco is setting higher goals or new high goals to be reached by individuals.
It’s the Cisco Certified Architect which has been new to the top level available certifications. As a prerequisite you need a valid CCDE certification. To get started with a more detailed view about the Certifed Architect you could start reading this article by Scott Morris, he is sharing his insights. Price to start here is 15.000 $ for the new cert. You will have to pass the CCDE also first. This has been a privilege to only some people. Thinks it’s a good idea to read Scotts article, to form your opinion.
In fact Cisco has announced also three more new certs:
Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Wireless
Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Support Specialist
Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Design Specialist
Any comments on this are welcome. See you soon.
