We are excited to announce an all-new resource here on the Meraki Community — the Meraki Learning Hub.
The Learning Hub is now THE place to learn about Meraki’s training offerings. Take a look for yourself: https://community.meraki.com/learninghub
We also have some exciting changes to share about our training programs:
We hope you’re as excited about the Learning Hub as we are and that you’ll join us there to continue your journey with Meraki!
What are you waiting for… go take a look!
Looking forward to more technician focused education on Meraki, rather than Sales focused pitches!
The ECMS2 training course definitely looks promising and I'm looking forward to it reaching the London regional office.
I can't wait for the Cisco Meraki Solutions Specialist certification! But if the ECMS2 is coming anytime soon that would be great too!
Amazing i was waiting for something like this - ECMS 1, 2 & CMSS
New certification. Sign me up! I guess that means I need to adapt my new years resolutions
The CMNO was great... but it felt like there isn't quite enough time to cover everything in sufficient depth... so ECMS2 looks great!
I'm looking forward to this training class. When I took CMNO, I found myself hoping that a more advanced course would come along in the near future, so the ECMS2 is just what I was hoping for!
I noticed that the only way to get a seat currently is by recommendation from a member of the Meraki sales team. Who, exactly, is that? We purchased our Meraki gear through a third-party reseller (SyCom Technologies) that handled the sales side and assisted with the implementation. Does that make them our "sales team?" If so, how do they make a recommendation?
I would like to get into the ECMS2 class while the CMNO training is still fresh in my memory.
Any info about how to obtain the recommendation would be very helpful and very much appreciated.
I asked for this years ago, glad to finally see it happening.
Finally some deeper training ! Been waiting for this since I took the CNMO. I'm stoked to getting CMSS, now ECMS2 just needs to come to the Chicago area!
This is a great step towards the more in-depth training that many of us have been asking for! Hopefully the ECMS2 comes to my area soon as I don't think the company will fly me out to Meraki HQ as much as I would love to go!
...And my sales team has officially been harassed about the ECMS2 🙂
@CraigCummings There are four ECMS1 March sessions in US time zones available for registration right now (sessions are added regularly). You can select a date from the left-hand column and register via this form
Meraki is working scale ECMS2 capacity, while it will initially be limited to in-person sessions in Meraki offices, the team intends to provide other options for participating in this advanced training and preparing for the CMSS!
@jdsilva @EliseK How does one go about getting an official recommendation from the sales team for ECMS2?? Can you provide some clarification on that?
Global Meraki Team
I am looking forward to meet all you personally and to assist to ECMS2 at offices in Bogota, Colombia
Good luck with this effort global and rapid progress offering new training (in person and virtual) coming soon.
@Twitch I just emailed my Meraki Account team (also the sales team) and said I am interested in participating in the ECMS2 if there's a slot available. No idea if it'll get me a slot or not, but at least the ask is in with them.
@Twitch, @jdsilva said it well. You can reach out directly to your Meraki account team to let them know your interest.
To be notified when additional opportunities to attend a session become available, you can also complete this form.
Information on attendee requirements for ECMS2 (level of technical knowledge etc) is available on the ECMS2 page and the corresponding FAQ.
@EliseK, I don't see a form on this page, no matter which date I click on. Just blank white space to the right on the dates. I'd paste a screenshot if I could. I've tried this in Chrome and Safari. https://meraki.cisco.com/webinars/signup/2690/ecms1%3A-north-america-sessions/.
Update: I tried from another computer and it's working, so something wrong locally.
@EliseK @jdsilva Thanks guys! We don't have an account team that I'm aware of. Our Meraki gear was purchased through a Cisco reseller who handled everything for us in terms of the order, etc. I guess that is where I'm confused - we don't technically have a "team" at Meraki to directly contact.
Can you send me some contact info for someone on the account team that I can forward my request to?
I truly appreciate your help!
@CraigCummings I and my team haven't been able to replicate your problem. Looks like this issue may be a technical one specific to you. I'll send you a PM to get this resolved.
@Twitch You can contact the sales team covering your account via this form.
Where can I download new technical training: ECMS1 and ECMS2?
@Liem-Thanh it's an online webinar you can follow (for the ecms1)
@rward2801 Only Asia-Pacific Sessions seems to be available atm, maybe they're updating the pages.
@rward2801 and @BrechtSchamp, if there are no sessions posted for your region, all upcoming sessions for that region are at capacity. New sessions are posted for registration every two weeks and we're actively working to scale availability, so please check back again in a couple of weeks. You can also get a preview of course content and learn more about operating the Meraki Dashboard through select ECMS1 e-learning modules online here.
Thanks for the reply @EliseK . I see, maybe the message could be a little more explanatory, this feels a bit error-like :
@BrechtSchamp Agreed and thanks for the feedback. The ECMS1 team is working to come up with a fix for that message.
@rward2801 ECMS1 as registrations are processed on a first-come, first-served basis when registration becomes available and we don't have a notification link. New session dates are posted on the first and third Tuesday of each month, which means the next registration dates will be posted March 19, so please check back to register then!
Woohoo! Thank you for this resource!
I also hope that there are some Asian cities like Taipei in the EMS2 Interest form.
@TRIS_USA That's how I understand it too. The contents are the same. I would assume after you've done ECMS2 too, you would be ready for CMSS.
Meraki is long overdue a "proper" certification pathway......have been waiting for something to follow on from the CMNO 👍
@CarolineS , I saw that the cert is going to be proctored via Pearson. Do we know what the cost will be for the cert, etc? Is there a way to sign up for alerts when the test becomes available? I've been a long time Meraki fan boy, ~2013 and I've been looking for things like the CMNO and beyond.
@ham737 - so glad to hear you're excited about the CMSS cert! We are too! 🙂
We don't yet have information to share about the cost, logistics, etc, but we'll certainly update the page on the Learning Hub (community.meraki.com/cmss) when we do. As far as alerts for when the test becomes available — there's nowhere to sign up for these, but we'll be announcing it broadly here on the community and elsewhere when it's ready to go! I have no doubt that you'll hear about it.
Has anyone heard a response from a member of the sales team about being able to get a seat for ECMS2? I contacted them two weeks ago but so far no response.
Maybe building an actual course registration page would be a better option?
Nothing yet. The feedback I did get is that it's only organized in San Francisco HQ atm so harder to arrange logistically anyway for me and my clients here in Belgium. Although I'd love to go.
I'm so excited about this new certification path! I have my ECMS1 next week and just fill out the form today for the ECMS2. I have already talked to my employer and if accepted they have already approved the trip to San Francisco! I really hope I get the opportunity to attend because we are starting to heavily deploy Meraki solutions at all of our locations!
@Twitch I'm sure a more widely available registration page will be in place once the course is fully off the ground. Since it's by invite only right now I don't think you can expect that quite yet.
I'm based in Cape Town and I see that you have no plans to host the ECMS2 course here.
Do you have any dates lined up for London, as I would love to attend.
We're quite a large Meraki house in South Africa and have at least 3 people that would benefit from the 3 day course.
Good job, glad they added more technical focus.
The ECMS1 is finished at this time. Finally a bit of technical knowledge and laboratories to play!
Waiting for the ECMS2, maybe done in Italian language for those who, like me, have some English "flaws".
Who knows, I ask, maybe you do it for real!
Glad to see this coming as like most I was hoping for some more in-depth Meraki training. I am tempted to take the CMNO (now ECMS1) again just to see how it is now but they fill up very fast.
Looking forward to some more in depth training!
Signed up and accepted for ECMS1 next week, hoping hear back from you lovely people about ECMS2 soon 🙂
ECMS1 complete, was really good session thank you, now to wait on the 3 day course in london, first one starts next month, fingers crossed I get a place 🙂
ECMS1 complete , how could I participate in ECMS2 course?
I would like to cancel the training I am scheduled for which is ECMS1. I have it scheduled for another day already and don’t want to fill up a spot that somebody else can use. Can you please advise?
Hi @solobh -
Please email the team at email@example.com and let them know.
Has any progress been made with being able to sign-up for the ECMS 2 course? I requested a class back when it was first announced and I have not heard a thing since. Is a more formal process in place now besides "email and wait?" Our sales guy has even reached-out to some folks at Meraki on my behalf, but nothing has ever been heard in response.
@Twitch - we are continuing to work to scale the ECMS2 program. There is no new process as of yet.
