Why Enroll in the Huawei Certification Course?

The HCIA–Datacom certification aims to develop network engineers with entry-level Datacom knowledge and skills.

The HCIA - Datacom certification aims to cultivate network experts with theoretical knowledge of solutions and the ability to deploy networks across domains.

Certified professionals will be able to plan, deploy, operate, maintain, and optimize networks in different scenarios.

Huawei Datacom Certification is an upgrade of the previous Routing & Switching Certification, featuring advanced technologies, various fields, comprehensive capabilities, and practical skills.

It not only provides knowledge about traditional routing and switching technologies, but also delivers the cultivation solution (which combines Huawei's Datacom network solution and new technologies).
