Cisco Customers Participate in Certification Design


Cisco recently hosted an impressive group of senior network engineers from organizations around the globe at the Cisco offices near Boston, Massachusetts. Their mission was to help update the detailed list of job tasks we use to enhance and revise our career certifications. They put in some long hours and an admirable effort—we documented 2300 tasks expected of network engineers! This important work helps ensure that Cisco certifications reflect the real-world expectations for today's networking professionals.
