Cisco certification training integration
The Cisco certification training program integrates many elements to create a points-based structure for overall program requirements. Programs integrated into Cisco certification training include the technology focus of each Cisco Partner Specialization, flexible individual career certification requirements, customer satisfaction targets, and pre- and post-sales support capabilities.
As part of the program requirement for Cisco certification training, the integration of specializations requires that each partner specialize in technology areas. The partners themselves may choose the technology area for specialization, but they first must earn a minimum number of specialization points to become certified.
Cisco certification training levels
Partners can achieve three Cisco certification training levels: Gold, Silver and Premier Certification. Before Silver or Gold Certification is awarded, an independent firm conducts an on-site audit to ensure that your company has met all of the Cisco certification training program requirements. Cisco has introduced more discipline into the Cisco certification training program recently by requiring that partners renew their certification annually. An audit is required before Gold or Silver Re-certification is granted.
