Collaboration will further world-class technology training
BICSI and Cisco share a common mission in advancing the information technology industry and the systems that support today’s evolving business infrastructure. Under the terms of the agreement, BICSI and Cisco will provide educational and training opportunities in addition to credentials and certifications for each other’s current customer and membership base. The synergy provides a great avenue for additional educational opportunities for both organizations’ customers.

- Active Cisco® CCENT®, CCNA®, CCNA Voice®, CCNA Wireless®, CCNA Security®, CCDA®, CCNP® CCSP®, CCNP Voice®, CCNP Wireless®, CCNP Security®, and CCDP™ certification holders will benefit from discounts on BICSI products such as data center, installation, network and security courses and manuals, as well as BICSI standards.
- BICSI members will be able to receive additional Continuing Educational Credits (CECs) by taking approved Cisco courses, such as Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices and Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures.
- Nearly two dozen Cisco courses have currently been approved for BICSI CECs.

"This is a very important first step for BICSI and one that will bring new CEC opportunities for our credential holders. This is a huge benefit for those who are looking for more opportunities to get CECs without having to travel far distances. Cisco offers instructor-led training through authorized learning partners around the world, self-assessments, mobile learning and e-learning products, and this global, customized approach will help solidify BICSI’s stance in getting CECs for our global community as well."
