Certification for DNS/BIND and DHCP administrators
DNS/BIND, DHCP, DNSSEC and IPv6 Certification is Here!
In 2012, acting in conjunction with our training partner Men & Mice, we announced our DNS/BIND, DHCP, IPv6 and DNSSEC Certification program.
These certifications are based primarily on the protocols and also from material presented in the DNSco & Men & Mice training curriculum. (Please note: The certification also tests operational experience. If you have never operated a DNS Server, DHCP Server, or IPv6 network, attending the training might not give you enough information to successfully complete and pass the certification.)
ISC and Men & Mice currently provide the certification testing online, two times per month.
This certification gives administrators an advantage in their job performance and careers through certifications that are quickly being recognized in the industry. Organizations seeking experienced professionals will get a reliable way to assure the knowledge of an administrator.
The following certifications are available:
- Certified DNS/BIND Associate - based on the material covered in the "2-Day DNS & BIND Introductory" training
- Certified DNS/BIND Professional - based on the material covered in the "5-Day Intro DNS & Advanced BIND topics
- Certified DNSSEC Expert - based on the material covered in the "3-Day DNSSEC Workshop"
- Certified IPv6 Associate - based on material covered in the "3-Day IPv6 Essentials
