Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert CCIE Target Audience and Benefits
18-04-11 - Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE), the top gun from Cisco the internetworking giant is not your everyday certification considering what you have to go through to achieve this certification. It is without doubt the most difficult and the most challenging certification to obtain.
No wonder CCIE commands admiration and respect from peers and others in the industry.
However, global industry recognition and prestige isn’t just about being the toughest certification in the world.
The CCIE fortifies you with top notch internetworking skills that are the numero uno in the industry.
CCIE holders, according to Cisco's Web site, "leads the networking industry in deep technical networking knowledge and are deployed into the most technically challenging network assignments.”
In fact the reputation of Cisco systems and the avalanche of worthless certifications and the syndrome of paper certification have helped to enhance the reputation and value of CCIE. Because achieving CCIE means you must go through tough testing and strict security procedures, the industry knows a becoming a paper CCIE is mission impossible.
Indeed CCIEs are highly respected and have the best opportunities for advancement being a high-visibility, high-prestige, high-worth certification. Through the confirmation of hard-to-find expertise CCIE holders are able to choose and dictate their terms in global job markets. Income potential is high and there are no geographical barriers to opportunity.
Having such an expert level of internetworking skills enables you to differentiate yourself and open doors. Demand far exceeds supply so work opportunity, job security, fulltime or part time, is never an issue or problem.
CCIE always has a buzz associated with it because it's considered a top level achievement and is highly respected by those who have it, and those who don't. But is CCIE for you? The fear, difficulty and respect generates interest. Desire? But is desirability enough?
Again, I stress that CCIE isn’t your typical, “average everybody” certification. Coming from the Cisco systems stable you know it must meet high standards. There's the demand for Cisco certifications overall, and even within Cisco CCIE is number one.
Is it just for you because you desire to demonstrate knowledge of router technology? Expert level mastery is in a different class entirely to basic and fundamental knowledge. It isn’t for those who just want to understand how routing and switching technologies work. It is about expert level stuff. Is that your desire?
Cisco informs us that, “There are no formal prerequisites for CCIE certification; other professional certifications or training courses are not required”. “You are expected to have an in-depth understanding of the topics in the exam blueprints and strongly encouraged to have three to five years of job experience before attempting certification”.
Without the experience and thinking required it’s simply impossible to comprehend the magnitude or complexity of this giant of a credential.
