Cisco ID and Cisco.com ID

Hello All,

I created an account with Pearson VUE and it asked for my Cisco ID, which I said I didn't know as I haven't taken a Cisco exam before. Today I created an account on the Cisco.com website to get access to some of the labs.

Just to confirm the account that I created on Cisco.com has nothing to do with the Cisco ID on Pearson VUE (which currently is pending)?

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks

Yes, that's correct. The

Yes, that's correct. The Pearson 'CSCO' ID is completely separate from your cisco.com as a userid. That's why you need to establish it independently with Pearson VUE.

It is used for certification tracking and has no bearing on your entitlements and activities on cisco.com com.

Think I've got it, the Cisco

Think I've got it, the Cisco ID for Pearson VUE is the one that begins with 'CSCO' and is not the account used for Cisco.com.
