Well, I know that my CCNA certificate has a website and a verification code on it that can be used. I would have whoever is applying provide those two things to you. If they can't, they're probably lying.

You can't verify the credentials without the candidate making available for you.

You can ask them to publish their information. Once they publish their information, you will receive an email with a link and temporary password.

I have the CCIE # he gave me does that help, or does he still have to publish this information for me?

CCIE is slightly different. I thought you were referring to CCNA and CCNP certifications. James provided the link that allows you to see CCIE status.

Hi thepeopleschamp9,

To verify anyone's certification you will need to go to to open a case and provide the following information:

Candidate's name:

Candidate ID or Cisco ID #:

Certification level(s) you wish to verify:

The exam scores and other contact or personal information will not be released.

To open a case or find answers to your certification questions please visit our Certification Online Support page at
