Our results speak for themselves, our graduates speak for us! Here's what our Alumni have to say.


Is your MEF-CECP up for renewal?
You’ve gone through all the work to earn your MEF-CECP – Don’t let it become INACTIVE! The fact that you passed it the first time is a great indicator of how you’ll do on the recertification exam. In addition to keeping your certification current, here are the top 5 reasons to renew your MEF-CECP certification:


NEW CONTENT - The exam now covers material that wasn’t included on your first certification exam. The new topics are the most talked about in the industry, including Service OAM technologies, OVC Services and updates to the MEF core technical specifications – MEF 6.2 and MEF 10.3


MEF FUTURE DIRECTION - Besides covering all the updates, you’ll learn the hottest new Carrier Ethernet subjects and get a detailed look at the MEF’s future direction


REFRESH EXPERTISE - Prepping to take the exam again is a great way to refresh your Carrier Ethernet expertise whether you attend a course, take advantage of our study guide or review on your own


MAINTAIN YOUR STANDING - Your MEF-CECP is recognition of your Carrier Ethernet expertise. Keeping that expertise up to date is important to you and your company


LESS EFFORT, GREATER GAINS - You succeed the first time, and while there are new topics, recertification will require much less effort than your first exam.


Don’t become INACTIVE – The MEF will even give you a discount for renewing before your certification expires! Register today!


Not convinced yet? Here's what one of our Alumni who re-certified in 2016 had to say:


“I originally obtained my MEF-CECP through the Carrier Ethernet Academy in March of 2013.  The company I was employed by at the time, was evolving their current SONET infrastructure to Metro Ethernet and was thus encouraging certification.  I was elated, not only to pass the certification exam, but to also walk away with a working knowledge of the MEF standards and how to apply the information to my current engineering position. The knowledge I obtained through certification has helped me to drive sales and provide consultative services to my customers.


I was notified by the MEF in late 2015 that my MEF-CECP would require a re-certification to remain current.  Although, it made sense from an industry perspective, from a personal standpoint, I intended to “fly under the radar” and avoid studying for the second exam.  I heard through the company grapevine that a Carrier Ethernet Academy class was to be scheduled in March so I asked my Manager to enroll me. 


Taking the course for a second time was a great refresher for what I had learned and been working with for the previous three years.  There was a lot on information and changes that have taken place with the evolution to MEF 2.0.  Taking the Boot Camp a second time was  a great use of my time and quickly brought me up to speed with all the changes.  I subsequently passed the exam with a much higher score than my first Boot Camp.  I would definitely recommend the Carrier Ethernet Academy for re-certification.”
