Accredited Training Providers

Instructor-led training through an MEF-ATP is the preparation method used by more than 80% of successful MEF-CECP candidates. MEF-NFCP and MEF-SNCP (SDN/NFV) training is offered through select MEF-ATPs at this time. 

MEF has developed a network of Accredited Training Providers (MEF-ATPs) to provide MEF-NFCP and MEF-CECP training. These industry subject matter experts have each been audited by MEF to ensure that their courseware meets or exceeds the requirements for their students to achieve not only MEF-CECP, but the latest MEF-NFCP certification.

Self Study

MEF provides MEF technical specifications and white papers which are all required reading in preparation for the MEF exams. MEF has also created the MEF Reference Wiki.  The Reference Wiki includes a compilation of the MEF technical specifications and covers the essentials of the topics covered on the related exam topics in an easy to navigate format with direct links to further study materials.   It also contains a gallery of diagrams used by the MEF, a glossary of terms, and a consolidated list of links to all reference documents.  The "Exam Blueprints" are of foremost interest and on this site you will find links to these resources. 

MEF Accredited Training Providers

Instructor–led training through an MEF Accredited Training Provider (MEF-ATP) is the preferred and utilized by more than 80% of successful MEF-CECP candidates. This option enables more thorough yet focused coverage of the study materials, and as such can be a time saving preparation alternative for busy professionals.

MEF has developed a network of Accredited Training Providers (MEF-ATPs) to provide training for MEF Certified Professional exams. These industry subject matter experts have each been audited by MEF to ensure that their courseware meets or exceeds the requirements for their students to achieve certification.

Most MEF-ATPs offer class training, or private onsite for corporate group training in almost any location worldwide. Most will also administer the MEF exams immediately following their training class.

While the MEF accreditation program verifies the basic competency of the training companies, there are a number of individual factors—including the number of MEF Certified Professionals taught by the MEF-ATP, the cumulative pass rate, length, and tuition cost of the course—that the MEF does not regulate and should be considered when evaluating a MEF-ATP company.

Accredited Training Providers

Why study with an MEF-ATP rather than going at it alone?

  • MEF-ATP training programs range from three to five days. This significantly reduces your study time.
  • Learn from subject matter experts that have been audited and are regularly monitored by MEF.
  • Nothing beats an interactive, instructor-led learning experience!
