Cisco Wireless Certification Migration

Wireless is now an integral element of most networks and is fundamental to the implementation of the Cisco Digital Network Architecture.  The wireless certification path had not been updated for a while and needed to reflect the converged aspects of today’s networks. The new Cisco Enterprise certification path brings routing and switching, 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.
