MEF-CECP Re-Certification LogoMEF-CECP is a mark of excellence that stands alone.  Ensure your certification remains valid as the market for Carrier Ethernet services accelerates, driven by the need for service speed, performance, assurance and the transition from static to on-demand services. 


Evolution Of Carrier Ethernet And The Journey Forward

MEF, supported by a worldwide community of Carrier Ethernet Certified Professionals (MEF-CECPs), is the global driver behind the continuing acceleration of the Carrier Ethernet services market. As CE services continue to evolve, MEF-CECP professionals are required to maintain active certifications in order to keep pace with a market that is being driven by a need for service speed, performance, assurance and the transition from static to on-demand services.  With the recent launch of MEF 3.0, this requirement has never been greater.


Why Re-Certify?

Given the rate of industry change, MEF-CECP professionals need to keep pace with MEF developments, as they happen.  Case in point is MEF 3.0, launched in 2018 as a global services framework for defining, delivering, and certifying assured services across a global ecosystem of automated networks.

MEF 3.0 ushered in some major advancements in:

  • Wholesale OVC service definitions
  • Critical updates to the core MEF specs such as MEF6, MEF10, MEF20 and MEF 26
  • New testing and monitoring, and service assurance techniques that are a must to build assured MEF 3.0 networks.

Existing MEF-CECPs who maintain and Active certification and re-certify within the 3 year expiration period realize the following benefits:

  • Position yourself to be in the group of professionals that are leading your company's drive to be enablers of the digital economy and our new cloud-centric world
  • Validate your knowledge of the numerous new MEF service features, resultant from the evolution from CE 2.0 to MEF 3.0
  • Prepare for the pending proliferation of MEF LSO APIs, by having the certified credentials to built what MEF calls "Orchestration Ready" services

Companies will:

  • Protect their investments in carrier Ethernet trained and certified personnel, by making modest incremental expenditures
  • Extend the base of knowledge, that was instrumental in the success of CE 2.0, to encompass the expanded, ambitious MEF 3.0 global services framework

Re-certification is designed to help professionals maintain their skills and knowledge base up-to-date with MEF work, such as MEF 3.0 and beyond. The benefits are obvious. As an individual, maintaining a current certification enables you to:
  • Better serve your customer base with proven mastery of the latest MEF development in the Carrier Ethernet services
  • Better serve your business as a technology leader, skillfully guiding your company as it drives forward towards a digital economy and cloud-centric world
  • Validate your knowledge of new MEF service features in the evolution from CE 2.0 to MEF 3.0
  • Prepare for the pending proliferation of MEF LSO APIs by having the certified credentials to built "Orchestration Ready" services, as defined by MEF

For companies that have already made significant investments in getting their employees MEF-CECP certified, re-certification of this employee pool carries equally tangible benefits. Re-certification enables them to:

  • Protect their initial investments in carrier Ethernet trained and certified personnel
  • Maintain a trained and well-versed employee pool of certified professionals that can serve their customer base with a proven mastery of CE services.
  • Extend the base of knowledge, that was instrumental in the success of CE 2.0, to encompass the expanded MEF 3.0 global services framework

When and how does the MEF-CECP certification Expire?

MEF-CECP certifications are “Active" for a period of 3 years. To maintain an ‘Active’ status, MEF-CECPs need to take a re-certification exam before the expiration date of their current certification. Those who maintain a status of "Active" continue to hold their uniquely certificate ID. Those who do not re-certify before their certification expiration date will lose their certificate ID, and the status of their certification will change to "Inactive" (expired) on the Certified Professionals listing.


Re-train From Scratch?

Not necessarily!  And this will depend on the age of the expired certification.  An individual that originally certified 6 years ago will most likely need more training than one that certified 3 years prior.  The good news is that many of the MEF Accredited Training Providers (MEF-ATPs) offer special "delta" a or "top-up" training courses focused on providing updates to the baseline knowledge that existing MEF-CECPs should already know. If you are, and continue to be current with MEF technical works, then you should consider taking the latest test, having reviewed the latest exam blueprint prior to the exam.


What Is My Current Certification Status?

The status of your certification is listed on the MEF Certified Professional Certification registry and a monthly email reminder is sent to each MEF Certified Professional six months in advance of certificate expiration.

The cost to re-certify is $300. To register for your re-certification exam click here. For a detailed overview of the MEF-CECP exam click here.
