ARCHITECT LEVEL CERTIFICATION

There is no formal training program for CCAr Certification. The candidates willing to earn CCAr Certificate must meet in person with Cisco Appointed Exam Committee and present a network architecture that can effectively support a given set of realistic business requirements.

To earn CCAr(Cisco Certified Architect) you need to follow the mentioned process:

Candidates first need to submit an application mentioning their qualifications and project experience and Once the application is accepted/approved they are interviewed by the Cisco-designated Architecture Board team members.

On the approval of the application, the candidates will be given an architecture challenge and will meet live with Board members to answer questions and defend their design.

CCAr Certification is only valid for 5 Years

  1. You really done a great job by sharing the post on the CISCO certifications and exams. You have explained well about the five levels of certification offered by Cisco with the detail on Different related exam to each level, the exam code and exam name with its cost. This will be helpful for those who wants carry out their career in networking. Thank You for sharing.

  2. One of my friend have done engineering in electronics and telecommunication. Now she’s willing to do some course in CCNA. Some one suggested to do CCNA in security. Can you help with some good suggestion. Is it good for her? What should be alternative if not ?

    • Hi Siddhesh,

      Good to hear about your concern about your friend!

      See CCNA RS is the prerequisite for CCNA Security in terms of training as well as certification.

      Yes CCNA Sec is good, but we personally feel any CCNA is almost useless without CCNP Knowledge, we are not recommending certifications here, its knowledge that matters for a fresher candidate. Certification helps those already who are inside the industry more

      Assuming she is 2016 graduate, suggestion is to take CCNA and CCNP and make sure the trainer is at least CCIE certified and institutes have real Cisco devices to help her practice. Rest is totally her hard work. Openings are in plenty, do things before February/march as there are plenty of hirings in march/April/may off campus.

      Hope we were able to answer your question, if not then feel free to call us anytime at 8750004411.

      Regards
      To your success

  3. hey ! Great to read your article and it really helped me a lot .but I’ve a query, am pursuing B.E. from CS branch III year and like to make my career in networking. Can you please share some nitty-gritty on CCNA. how can I do that and from where it’ll be more beneficial for me.

    • Hi Arti Verma
      Glad to hear that you are interested in networking domain. Yes, CCNA R&S will be the starting point to learn networking. CCNA R&S helps you build a strong foundation in networking domain. As you are in 3rd Year, as of now you can start with CCNA and later on once you have time you can go ahead with CCNP R&S and further courses. You can enroll yourself at I-Medita and start with CCNA initially. For detailed information, you can reach our team from here
