Is there any update on certification road map?
Here is a great course about Cumulus to prepare for an eventual Certification:

It has been a year since I asked the question, interresting to know if there has been any progress in this domain

Cumulus staff?
i think running regular competitions/events like networking/scripting challenges, topology submissions, etc. and providing participants with talent badges that are recognizable, could be great, instead of a just another certification strategy like a typical vendor, starting gradually from 100s and rocketing over to some 1000s of USDs. the former way i think network engineers who are interested with your products/software can focus on a topic of interest and develop expertise rather than just focus on getting a certificate. its a nice factor that cumulus has provided various ways of testing their products via various virtualization platforms... having said this, i would also be one among those who would go for a certification, if you come up with one, if there isn't that other choice 🙂

Hi Brendan,

We are tying to make sure that tools to do hands-on practice is available and accessible to all, this is our priority but certification is a topic we keep coming back to and i hope we can give you an update later this year.

Cheers
