Express

Specialisation

Ingram Micro and Cisco offer a range of training and certification options. Specialise is a valuable way to expand your business, become an expert in specific areas for your customers and increase revenue!

Express Specialisation consists of six tracks and uses a new flexible application process. Only one track is required but multiple tracks may be achieved at the same time. Only one Express Specialisation will be awarded regardless of how many tracks are achieved. Additional tracks may be achieved at any time, and they will not affect the anniversary date of your Express Specialisation.
