Introduction to Cisco Network Engineer Certifications:

Cisco certification system is launched by Cisco, a famous manufacturer in the network field.

Registration Conditions of Cisco Network Engineer Certifications:

Cisco certification exams have no requirements for candidates’ educational background or career experience. All on-the-job personnel with a certain level of DOS, Windows and English ability, college students and personnel who need to obtain technical knowledge of network key equipment can sign up for Cisco certification training. Cisco international certificates can be obtained by passing the international certification exams.

To put it simply, Cisco certification exams have no requirements for educational background. It would be OK for you to apply for the certifications, no matter whether you are a novice in the Internet industry or an insider.

It would also be OK if you want to directly apply for expert level CCIE certification, and you don’t need to pass the lower level CCNA or CCNP certification in Cisco certification system. However, even so, you still need to master knowledge of CCNA and CCNP related directions. If you want to apply for the CCIE certification exam, it is recommended to learn and master the relevant knowledge of CCNA, CCNP and CCIE certification before registering to make it more possible to obtain the CCIE certificate.

Candidates must first pass the written exam before they can take part in the lab exam. Of course, we know that CCIE certification exam has two parts: the written exam and the lab exam. There are no restrictions on the registration of written exam, but you still need to pass the written exam before you can participate in the lab exam. And Cisco certification exams are in English. In the process of learning the content of CCIE certification, it is necessary to master some English words that may appear in the exams.

The only restriction for applying for Cisco network engineer certifications is the age. If you have to say that there are any registration restrictions for Cisco certification, it must be age. According to the information on the official website, the age requirements for Cisco certifications are as follows:

*Children under the age of 13 may not be able to take part in Cisco certification or obtain the certificate even with the consent of their parents;
*Cisco global certification program allows minors to take all written (Electronic) and laboratory exams;
*Minors here refer to individuals between the ages of 13 and 17. With the consent of their parents or legal guardians, they can take the exam, and if they pass the exam, they can be certified;
*Cisco reserves the right to impose additional restrictions to comply with local data protection laws. If candidates want to include the exam results in their qualification for obtaining the certificate, Cisco certification and confidentiality agreement must be signed by the minor’s parents or legal guardians, and then sent to Cisco by e-mail or e-mail;
*Individuals who have reached the age of 18 are eligible for obtaining the certificate regardless of age.

To sum up, at present, as long as you are over 18 years old, you can apply for any level of Cisco certification exam.
