How To: Display your Meraki certifications on LinkedIn

We've had a couple of questions about how to display your Meraki certifications on LinkedIn. Here's the answer - you can include your CMNA, CMNO, or CMNP certification in the Accomplishments > Certifications section on LinkedIn:

To get this set up:

  1. Make sure your badge is appearing on your community profile. If it's not, there are three likely causes:
    1. You signed up for the community very recently. It can take up to 5 business days after signing up before your badge appears.
    2. You took the CMNA or CMNO course very recently. It can take up to 5 business days after completing the course before your badge appears.
    3. The email address you used for CMNA or CMNO isn’t the same as your community email address. In this case, please email us at community-help@meraki.com and we'll get it sorted out!
  2. CMNO only: Find your certification number from the certificate we sent you.
  3. Log in to LinkedIn and go to your profile.
  4. From the "Add new profile section" on the right, select "Accomplishments" and then the "+" next to Certifications: linkedInCertifications.png
  5. Fill in the following information:
    • Certification name: CMNO, CMNA, CMNP
    • Certification authority: Cisco Meraki
    • License number: N/A for CMNAs / CMNPs. For CMNOs, use the number from your certificate (e.g. 004077)
    • Dates: the month and year you received your certification; you can check the "This certification does not expire" checkbox
    • Certification URL: The URL of your community profile (which shows your badge)

  6. Save, and confirm that your certification is appearing in the "Accomplishments" section of your LinkedIn profile.

 

Also, if you want your certifications to appear on your public LinkedIn profile, you may need to adjust your privacy settings:

  1. Go to the "Edit Public Profile & URL" section of your profile: linkedInCertifications-Public.png
  2. Confirm that "Certifications" is set to "Show":linkedInCertifications-Privacy.png

I'm seeing a lot of Merakis, but not the real one (the one with the green background as pictured above).

 

See the attached screenshots.

Hi @Tekrondo - I think you'll have more luck if you search for "Cisco Meraki". Surprising that a search for "Meraki" isn't working though!

Re: How To: Display your Meraki certifications on LinkedIn

I don't see my certificate number. I have received an email stating that I earned the CMNO badge but there's no mention of a certificate. Should I expect that as a separate email?

Hi Felix,

 

Yes, sometimes it takes a couple of weeks to get your certificate number / certificate. When did you complete CMNO?

 

Cheers!

Hi Caroline!

Thanks for your response.

That must be it. It's only been a week. I passed the test last Friday.

Re: How To: Display your Meraki certifications on LinkedIn

Hi Caroline,

It's now been a tad over 3 weeks and still no certificate. I have the badge on my profile but in the instructions for posting on LinkedIn, it states "use the number from your certificate (e.g. 004077)" but I have not received anything other than notification of the badge. 

Can you assist?

Hi @FelixJacomino -

 

Thanks for letting us know about the delay in your certificate. Can you please email the CMNO team at cmno@meraki.com? They'll be able to help you out.

Hi @4Jonjon20 - 

 

My apologies for the delayed response. You can learn more about our CMNO (Certified Meraki Network Operator) program here. If you are a Meraki partner, you may also be eligible for our CMNA program; you can learn more about that here.

 

Cheers!
