Cisco Learning Credits

The ideal way to plan your team's training

Cisco Learning Credits are prepaid vouchers you can use toward Cisco training and exams. When purchasing Cisco products and services, you can address anticipated training needs by adding Cisco Learning Credits to your order. Learning Credits are the ideal way to plan your organization’s immediate and long-term training goals. Use them for virtual classroom training six months from now, or purchase digital training such as a Cisco Digital Learning subscription today.

Learning Credits Management Tool

  • Register your Cisco Learning Credits, track transactions, validate Learning Credit redemptions, and generate reports.
  • Maintain precise records of collective and individual training statistics.
  • Manage the overall training purchase with monthly statements of account activity.
  • Initiate reissue requests.

What are Cisco Learning Credits?

Cisco Learning Credits are prepaid training dollars or “credits.” When ordering Cisco products and services, you can optimize your spend by addressing anticipated training needs as part of the total solution. At the time of purchase, you can include Cisco Learning Credits, which are redeemable for high-quality training directly from Cisco Training Services and Cisco Learning Partners. Instead of training being an afterthought to your original purchase, you can bundle products and services with Cisco Learning Credits. Training ensures that your staff will more rapidly become familiar with the new technology, thereby accelerating your return on investment.

Note: You can also purchase Learning Credits as a stand-alone order.

  • Each Cisco Learning Credit is equivalent to US$100.
  • Sold in packages of 1, 10, 100, 500, and 1500.
  • Purchased like any Cisco product or service.
  • Activated between one and five days after invoicing and expire one year after the invoice date.
  • Registered, redeemed, and monitored in an online database called the Learning Credit Management Tool (LCMT).
  • When applied to training, must be used for training that begins before the expiration date.
  • Can be applied to registration for events that take place after the expiration date of the credits, but you must register for the event before the expiration date.
  • Customers who haven’t been able to use all their Learning Credits can request a six-month extension, subject to approval.
