Cisco Systems Inc. has added two certification and one learning course to its extensive education roster.
*The TelePresence Solutions Specialist certification focuses on the job-performance needs of a midcareer voice specialist or networking engineer who seeks to specialize in the planning, design, implementation and maintenance of Cisco TelePresence deployments, the company said in a news release. Tasks include assessing network paths for rich media, evaluating call-control design options and configuring interoperability functions. The CCNA certification is a prerequisite.
The TelePresence Installations Specialist certification focuses on the needs of an installation technician seeking to master the physical deployment and construction of single-screen Cisco TelePresence Systems (the 500, 1000, 1100 and 1300 series). Tasks include assessing room readiness, tuning cameras/microphones and installing high-definition screens. While there is no prerequisite certification, a working understanding of basic Internet-based device connections is highly recommended.
Information about courseware and exams is scheduled to be available in early 2010 at https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/.
The 360 Learning Program for CCIE Voice provides experienced network engineers with a program to build expert-level skills and to prepare for the Cisco CCIE Voice Lab Exam. Candidates should have already passed the CCIE Voice Written Exam before beginning this program.
*The new program is scheduled to be available through authorized learning partners on Dec. 7.
