Unified Communications Manager used to be called Callmanager (Version 4 and below I think)? But they are the same thing.

Also, Callmanager express is the router-based version of Callmanager.

CallManager refers to the Windows-based product which is still around as

version 4.3.

Communications Manager was a name change that coincided with the intent to swithover to the Linux platform version of the software.

Definitely Unified Communications Manager, but try and get some more "general voip" training first (try CVOICE).

Cisco has moved away from the Windows-based platform.  Yes it is still around, but the majority of customers are now on the Linux appliance platform.  So, that's the way to go software-wise.  It'd also be good to get some general networking knowledge such as CCNA, CCNA Voice.
