What does a Cisco certification expert think about HP’s new networking certifications?


Wendell’s biography in Network World says he is CCIE No. 1624, and he has been writing and teaching about Cisco CCNA since its introduction in 1998, authoring Cisco Press CCNA Exam Certification Guides and  bestselling Cisco Press titles for CCNA, CCNP and CCIE R/S.


So here we were, a couple of HP people, telling Wendell that HP has new certifications covering networking products that compete against Cisco products. I didn’t know if we’d be shown the door, laughed at, dismissed, or actually listened to.


Wendell DID listen to our message and then took a deep dive into our new networking certifications to see how they compare to Cisco’s. Check out his comments for yourself...see Wendell’s article in Network World, “Upgrade Your Cisco Cert to an HP Cert,” at


I appreciate Wendell’s open and honest assessment of HP networking certifications, especially in view of the fact that he makes his living from supporting Cisco certification. Given that he advises his loyal Cisco followers to use their Cisco certifications to springboard to an HP certification through HP’s fast track initiative, I assume he likes what he sees in the HP ExpertONE program.  Until next time,
