BCNP

Hello,

 

What is the next logical step after getting the BCNP certification?

 

Thanks.

Re: BCNP

Hi Doug, apologies in the late response. Our certification manager left recently, and I have been asked to take over his responsibilities in regards to the communities and social media. I'll do my best to answer your question.

 

I think it depends on what discipline you're looking to grow. You could move toward Layer 4-7 with Certified Layer 4-7 Professional, which would round out the advanced level of the Internetworking track, or you could move into the converged track and look at Brocade Certified Ethernet Fabric Professional, or get into one of the SDN/NFV certs. Also, you could move down the Internetworking track and get the BCNE, which is gaining a ton of traction in the industry (I read yesterday, it is considered one of the top 5 certifications for 2014).

 

Take a look at the program matrix (on page 3) of the certification program overview. Maybe this will help you in your decision. http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/certification_study_tools/certification_central.pdf

 

Let me know what other questions you have, and we can work together to figure out what makes the most sense given your interests.

 

Thanks a bunch,
