Explanation

Only SDN/NFV Skills Certification in the Industry.

The MEF-SDN/NFV certification exam is the only professionally-developed, legally defensible, standards-based certification exam for the domains of SDN and NFV.

Industry is Virtualizing.

First servers, then storage, now networks. IT/Telecom pros who don’t get virtualization are going to be left behind.

SDN/NFV skills are in demand.

Take a look at the SDN/NFV salaries report. These people are the ones who will earn money.

Getting Hired.

Having a MEF-SDN/NFV certification will certainly give you an advantage when hiring managers look at your resume. Competition for IT/Telecoms networking jobs can be stiff and having a MEF SDN/NFV certification is a significant advantage compared to those who do not have one. When two otherwise equal candidates are vying for the same job, the one who has a certification will have the edge over the candidate that does not.

Prove Your Skills and Knowledge.

Earning the MEF-SDN/NFV Certified Professional designation offers a way to prove to potential employers, or a current employer, that you have the skills you claim in SDN and NFV.

Earn more money on the job. Scarce skills=most money.

In the U.S. and Canada, certified IT/Telecom staff make nearly USD$8,400 more than non-certified counterparts—equal to an 11.7 percent pay increase. For IT/Telecom decision-makers, the difference is slightly lower, at 8.9 percent or USD$9,200.

Employers Recognize Certifications.

Recent studies reveal that 91 percent of employers use IT/Telecom certifications as a reliable indicator of a good candidate in the hiring process. They do so because they know that certifications set a benchmark level for the knowledge, skills and abilities they want their IT/Telecom staff to have. In a volatile economic environment, businesses are always looking for ways to cut costs. That may mean jobs are on the line. The bottom line is you must invest in yourself.

Gain Job Proficiency More Quickly.

Preparing for and earning certifications are a great way to ramp up your skills and move up more quickly. Taking training classes in SDN/NFV offered by a MEF-ATP, reading study guides and completing online training modules can help you gain the skills you need in small chunks. You can immediately take what you learn and implement it on the job, and when you’re ready, you can take the certification exam to validate your newfound knowledge.

Networking Opportunities.

Once you earn the MEF-SDN/NFV certification, then you join a very unique group of certified and skilled professionals. This can prove to be an invaluable peer resource group when seeking answers to problems or sharing the solutions to your own challenging SDN/NFV scenario. This peer group of certified professionals can also pass along guidance on how to further enhance your career or where to seek specific technical knowledge.

Make an Investment in Your Career.

Earning a MEF Professional Certification isn’t an easy task. It takes time to prepare, and the exam is not without cost, too. Whether you or your employer is absorbing the expense, earning a MEF-SDN/NFV certification shows that you are interested and invested in professional development.

Others Are Gaining.

A recent report published by Global Knowledge [1] found that 4 in 5 IT/Telecom employees have certifications. Eighty-two percent of IT workers today have certifications, the report found, with each of those people averaging about three. Half of the respondents earned their most recent certification within the last year.

Acclaimed by Leading Standards Organizations.

Highly-valued by industry institutions and organizations utilizing SDN and/or NFV in their business, the MEF SDN/NFV has been created by an international cadre of SDN and NFV professionals and represents a respected and legally accredited means of validating skills, knowledge, and abilities in SDN and NFV.

MEF-SDN/NFV: Stepping Stone to Higher Recognition.

Earning the MEF-SDN/NFV certification is one step toward the MEF Network Expert & MEF Network Master achievement-level credentials. These brand-new recognitions are the latest way that MEF is celebrating the technical achievement of those who pass its certification exams.
