Unity Certification - IP Telephony Specialization

- Sort of off topic - sorry.<br><br>Do people who were certified as a Unity Engineer under the<br>previous ActiveVoice regime need to be recertified under the<br>Cisco program?<br><br>All I have to prove this is a paper certificate, no record<br>exists of this under the electronic tracking system that<br>Cisco seems to use to prove a partner participant exam <br>audit.<br><br>See<br>specialization/iptelephonyrevised/rolerequirements.shtml<br>for more information (watch for word wrap) under the FM2<br>role.<br><br>--- Thanks ---<br><br>

Re: Unity Certification - IP Telephony Specialization

From our in house training coordinator:


The short answer is: that old AV certificate showing a person as a Unity Engineer will be valid until July 1, 2002 as a part of someone's qualifying as a Field Engineer 2 for the IP Telephony specialization (a partner program where a business has to have a whole bunch of people fulfilling different roles in order to sell our AVVID solutions). As long as they use the certificate before July 1 it will be valid. The thing about the IPT specialization is that it is a snapshot deal - what we're saying is "at the time of application, everyone on staff met the qualifications outlined on the web site." So, a partner could apply in June 2002 and have an FE 2 using an AV certificate and no one would look at their certification again until June 2003.

After July 1, there are only going to be two acceptable tests; the one we had out on from May 2001 through today (April 15, 2002) and the proctored exam (9E0-805) available at either Drake Prometric or VUE Testing Centers. At some date in the not too distant future, we will only accept the proctored exam results. So, a person with an AV certificate would be best off taking the proctored exam if their company is going to be applying for IPT specialization after July 1, 2002.
