If you're a network administrator, network engineer or a systems engineer, this course is ideal for you.

Next step: CCNP Collaboration or CCIE Collaboration certifications

Once you have achieved your Cisco Certified Specialist – Collaboration Core certification, pass any of the following Cisco concentration exam to get your CCNP Collaboration certification:

  • 300-810 CLICA: Implementing Cisco Collaboration Applications (CLICA)
  • 300-825 CLACCM: Implementing Cisco Advanced Call Control and Mobility Services (CLACCM)
  • 300-820 CLCEI: Implementing Cisco Collaboration Cloud and Edge Solutions (CLCEI)
  • 300-835 CLAUTO: Automating Cisco Collaboration Solutions (CLAUTO)

Alternatively, if you’re aiming for the CCIE Collaboration certification, you'll need to complete the CCIE Collaboration v3.0 practical lab exam, where you'll cover the lifecycle of complex collaboration infrastructure.
