HCIE, Huaweis highest ICT technical certification


In the Huawei Certification system, HCIE represents the most advanced level of expertise in a specific area.
In order to be certified as a HCIE, the candidate will be tested on three aspects: theoretical knowledge by written exam, practical
capability by lab exam and comprehensive qualifications by interview.
A certified HCIE is able to design enterprise networks, has an excellent understanding of the network technologies and is able to apply
this in practice. Moreover, he/she is extremely skilled in using Huawei equipment to construct, operate and maintain the enterprise
networking, as well as capable of troubleshooting based on a perfect understanding of networking technologies.

Fast Track for Huawei Certification


The fast track for Huawei certification is to enable individuals, who have the relevant qualification certification, to get qualified certification
offered by Huawei.
Take HCDP certificate for an example, in the standard procedure to get the certification, one has to attend 19 days training and pass 3
test items. However, if he has the relevant qualification certification (such as CCNP and JNCIP), he can only attend 5 days training and pass
1 test item instead. And then he can get the HCDP certificate offered by Huawei as the same as that through the standard procedure.
