Cisco Routing & Switching Certification Migration

The Cisco Routing and Switching certification path had not been updated for a while and was missing coverage in areas such as software defined networking, automation and programming. The new Cisco Enterprise certification path incorporates these technologies whilst bringing wireless and design under the same umbrella.

The exams for the new certification program will not be available until the 24th February 2020 however any exams you complete in the existing program will be rewarded when the new certifications become available on the 24th February 2020.
