This change is being made to support an exciting new initiative by Cisco Meraki in partnership with Learning@Cisco: the development of the Cisco Meraki Solutions Specialist (CMSS) certification, which will be available in the second half of calendar year 2019!
As the CMSS certification will become the standard to recognize those who have achieved Specialist-level expertise with Cisco Meraki solutions, we will be retiring the Meraki CMNO certification on December 31, 2019.
While we are excited to announce this change to the CMNO program, we understand the expiration of the CMNO certification might be disappointing for you and apologize for the inconvenience.
Please note that the ECMS1 content is the same as the CMNO content, so your participation in the CMNO course gives you a head start in preparing for the upcoming certification if you choose to pursue it (and we hope you will!). Find more information on attending our advanced training course, ECMS2, and more on the CMSS certification here.
