Cisco Continuing Education Program

Lifelong learning

The Cisco Continuing Education Program offers all active certification holders’ flexible options to recertify by completing a variety of eligible training items. Learn more about how you can recertify via Continuing Education to retain your certification’s active status by doing things the certified professionals’ community already love to do: learn, keep skills sharp and evolve with the technology.

Cisco Continuing Education Program principles

The Continuing Education program is intended to encourage candidates to maintain, grow, and diversify skillsets by offering flexible, configurable pathways to validate skills and recertify existing certifications. This will result in IT professionals bringing value to their organization and the industry by maintaining their status as a Cisco professional.

Flexibility

Cisco certified individuals can choose from multiple options to recertify in addition to passing relevant exam(s).

Diversity

Select from a variety of pre-approved Continuing Education items, including online courses, instructor led trainings, select Cisco Live trainings, and authoring test questions to earn credits towards recertification.

Integrity

Cisco diligently curates the Continuing Education offerings, assigns credit value and enforces a rigorous credit validation process.

What is Cisco Continuing Education Program?

The Cisco Continuing Education Program is a recertification option for all active Associate, Specialist, Professional, and Expert level certified individuals.

Continuing Education can be applied in two recertification pathways:

  • Completing eligible items to earn the credits required for recertification
  •    Or, as applicable

  • Passing an eligible exam in combination with completing eligible items required for recertification.

Continuing Education requirements

Recertification requirements must be met prior to the certification expiration date. Individuals with expired certification(s) must recertify by examination to earn active certification status. Recertification can occur at any time during the active period by advancing to the next level of certifications, earning continuing education credits, or a combination of both.

Associate - 3 years Earn 30 CE credits  
Specialist - 3 years Earn 40 CE credits  
Professional - 3 years Earn 80 CE credits

  7. Recertification triggered through Continuing Education participation will be effective from the date the last Continuing Education item was completed.
  8. Credits will roll over or expire if a new recertification cycle starts:
    • Unapplied Continuing Education credits totaling 5 or more will roll over into the next recertification cycle and remain active until the item expiration date or the certification expires, whichever comes first.
    • Unapplied Continuing Education credits totaling 4 or less will expire upon recertification or when the certification expires.

  12. Except for certified CCIE’s, only Continuing Education items completed after Feb 24, 2020 are eligible for Continuing Education credit.
  13. There is no fee to participate in the program.

Global certifications

The Global Certifications Program is the overarching owner of all recertification policy. All Continuing Education policies must be approved by the Global Certification Body and must align to the standards and policies of Cisco’s Global Certifications Program.

Cisco Continuing Education Advisory Board

The Continuing Education Program is governed by the Continuing Education Advisory Board. The board is tasked with ensuring the program provides relevant Continuing Education item options that maintain the value and rigor of the program.

The Continuing Education Advisory Board is tasked with ensuring the program provides strategic direction to the Continuing Education program for overall governance as well as, formulating policy proposals that drive the Continuing Education program. The Advisory Board is responsible for reviewing and updating the content provider list and reviewing applications from external providers. The Continuing Education Advisory Board also reviews the recommendations from the Technical Committee and assigns the appropriate credit values to new courses. 

Continuing Education Technical Committee

The Continuing Education Technical Committee reviews submissions for new Continuing Education items to be added to the course catalog.  The Committee recommends the appropriate credit value to new courses. The Committee ensures that new items in the Continuing Education program adhere to the Cisco exam blueprint. The group also makes recommendations to the Continuing Education Advisory Board and provides technical input to the Administrative board.
