The Cisco Learning Network is a social learning community focused on the IT industry. Our mission at the Cisco Learning Network is to provide learning tools, training resources, and industry guidance to anyone interested in building an IT career through Cisco certifications. The certification preparation materials offered on the Cisco Learning Network do not constitute a complete self-study program but are supplemental materials to enhance core learning programs.
With more than 800,000 members registered globally, the Cisco Learning Network is a truly international learning experience intended to help support lifelong learning and sustainable education for its members.
