Expert-Level Cisco Certifications
Cisco Certified Interwork Expert (CCIE) certifications are the most prestigious certifications in the industry. As a CCIE, you are considered an industry leader, adept in deep technical networking knowledge and are highly valued. CCIE certifications are divided among five major tracks, each covering a major area of network engineering expertise. Less than 1% of networking professionals worldwide earn a CCIE certification, and so to become a CCIE is to become part of a very exclusive, highly sought after group. Often considered the PhD of Network Engineering, CCIE certification is often considered a prerequisite for many high-level network engineering roles. The average starting salary for CCIEs ranges from $110,000 to $175,000 a year or more, depending on additional certifications and experience.
