You can acquire the Cisco certification by passing the written portion and the listening and writing portions of the exam. This is the basic Cisco exam course which is recommended for network engineers. You can also acquire other Cisco certifications like CCNA, CCNP or any of the specialized Cisco cert exams like the ones based on networking, security or networking architecture. With a good score in the written exam you get the Cisco license which enables you to operate in an IT environment as a network administrator.
In order to pass the written section of the exam, you need to prepare well and review properly before the exam day. For this, you need to download the Cisco Certified Systems Engineer (CCSE) eBook which has a detailed set of exam tips. In this eBook, you find detailed information about the type of questions that appear on the exam paper. For this, you need to visit Cisco’s website and find the Exam Information page. You can find the examination schedule there as well.
For the listening and writing portions of the exam, you need to read the entire eBook. You can even download additional PDF files from the eBook and use them for studying. You can use these books to practice the listening and writing sections individually as long as you have your computer with you. After mastering these two areas, you can go back to the Cisco website to start the acquiring process of the Unix credential.
The second step is to enroll in Cisco authorized training sites. In these sites, you can find a variety of books, audio CDs, video tutorials and online interactive courses which can help you quickly acquire the Unix credential. There are also a number of free resources that you can use for learning. For example, you can find free webinars, free video tutorials, books and many other resources on the Net. All of these materials will help you master the tasks quickly.
After learning all these material, you can now try the three steps outlined in the previous section. To do these steps, you need to log into the Net and access the Unix cred certificate authority. For this, you need to log in as “cheapman”. You can then access the section where you will fill out your authorization request. Once you complete this step successfully, you will be asked to enter your credit card number. If you have not activated your virtual private server yet, then this process will fail.
After entering your credit card information, the issuer will verify the information. If the issuer finds that your financial institution account is valid and the card is still valid, it will automatically grant your certificate. Note that the virtual private server has to be activated in order to complete this step successfully. Your next task is to wait for the confirmation from the issuer. If the server is already activated, the business model will be validated and your application will be approved.
Finally, you can expect to hear from the issuer soon. Once approved, you should receive a letter from your financial institutions which will ask you to download the Cisco Universal Certification Network gateway software. Installation and the first network test are generally completed within two weeks. Cardholders can expect to receive their certificates after four to six weeks. Once your certificate is active, you can start enjoying the benefits of enhanced performance and security. Your cardholders can also expect to enjoy discounts on transactions processed through the Cisco Universal Certificate Exchange.
