Re: Meraki Master and CMNA Certification

@WadeAlsup is correct, and CMNO is the only customer-facing Meraki certification at this time.  CMNA is an internal certification program for Cisco and Partner SEs only.  The next level is Meraki Champions (the internal Cisco SE certification) or Meraki Masters (the Partner SE certification) and they're both internal only and by invitation only.  That does not mean the CMNO program might not evolve, and perhaps there might be some type of next-level Meraki certification program at some point, but I'm unaware of any plans at the moment. 

Hope that helps and congrats on your CMNO!

Hi @Eliudprom,

 

The CMNA is for Meraki partners and intended for those selling Meraki. https://meraki.cisco.com/partners/

 

Meraki Masters are also for partners and I believe are offered by invitation only (think exclusive).

@Eliudprom, correct. At this time, CMNO is the only User/Admin certification for Meraki products. However, I'd like to think they will have more or add-on certifications in the future.

Re: Meraki Master and CMNA Certification

Hi Guys,

 

Do you know what is the format for CMNA? is this also a remote training session/webinar with lab exercises? Or you need to be physically present at some accredited training camp by Meraki?

Re: Meraki Master and CMNA Certification

Got this from the Meraki partner site...ohhhhwwelllll...

Can I just sit and observe the session? Or is there an online version?
CMNA training sessions are hands-on and lab-intensive. Participants spend 75% of the day working on the lab. For that reason, we don’t allow observation by non-participants or offer an online version. It just wouldn’t be very fun watching other people work on a lab!

That's about the lamest answer I've ever heard.  Obviously someone who's never heard of RackSpace or any of a dozen or two remote lab / web conferencing systems.  Or (Cisco's) own Webex for that matter.
