Your company must be a Cisco Registered Partner before you apply for specialization or certification. Follow these steps to apply:

  1. Visit the "Become a Registered Partner" page if you are new to the Cisco Channel Partner Program and have not registered.
  2. Verify that the certified individuals fulfilling job roles are allocated to your company with their CSCO testing number. Partner Administrators and internal Cisco employees (associated through the CAM Assignment tool) are able to verify this information using the Partner Self Service tool. (It takes five to ten business days on average for Cisco to receive the exam results data from its respective testing agencies.)
