Long ago, in a galaxy far far away, I was once asked that question. In another context, entirely.
But on these screens, I'm asking you the same question but in another context.
I was poking around Cisco's Web site this morning when I happened upon their CCVP certification information page. The page offers a description of Cisco's new certification procedure for voice-over-Internet professionals.
"Earning a CCVP certification validates a robust set of skills in implementing, operating, configuring, and troubleshooting a converged IP network. The certification content focuses on Cisco Systems CallManager, quality of service (QoS), gateways, gatekeepers, IP phones, voice applications, and utilities on Cisco routers and Cisco Catalyst switches."
To earn your cert, you'll need to take Quality of Service, Cisco Voice over IP, IP Telephony Troubleshooting, and a two-part Cisco IP Telephony course.
Wait, it gets tougher. Starting in May (which begins on Sunday, you know) you'll alsoneed to master what sounds like a real bear: "Implementing Cisco Voice Gateways and Gatekeepers."
Any desire to be CCVP-certified? If you are one of those folks who vette certified tech pros, would you prefer a CCVP candidate over one with say, more experience but without the paper? TalkBack to us and give us your thoughts.
