Technology certifications

Elevate your contribution at work. Stand apart from the competition. Enhance your technology skills.

Ciena's suite of Technology Certifications provides expertise for all levels of network professionals—from beginners to seasoned experts. Certifications are carefully designed to address selected technologies through a unique focus on the development of practical knowledge and skills related to the technology, not a vendor or product, allowing each student the pursuit of the certification level that matches their specific objectives—whatever network environment they work within.

Each curriculum has been carefully developed and tested to provide value to a range of professionals, from those who need a basic understanding of the technology and its applications, need to conduct network business cases, and those responsible for ultimately architecting network solutions.

Carrier Ethernet Certifications

As demand for faster communication and increased bandwidth rises, so does the need for high-speed network connection systems.
