Those of you cramming for your Carrier Ethernet Certified Professional (MEF-CECP) certification might benefit from a new online study guide the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) has launched.

The study guide is available in a universal browser format and as part of the mobile iPad app “MEF on the Go.” Both available at http://metroethernetforum.org/CarrierEthernetStudyGuide/.

There are 191 MEF-CECPs already registered in 27 countries. “We set the bar high, and the quality of applicants has been excellent,” says MEF President Nan Chen. “The examination tests them on a vast body of knowledge generated by the MEF over 10 years – in addition to materials from the IEEE and other bodies – and we want candidates to spend less time searching the database and more time learning. This guide does exactly that – setting out the essentials in a clear, easy to navigate format with direct links to further study materials.”

The guide currently contains more than 180 HTML pages and is being continuously updated and expanded, the MEF says. Those registering to access the free guide can also opt to receive notification of updates via Twitter (@MEFCert). The Study Guide also contains a gallery of diagrams used by the MEF, a glossary of terms, and a consolidated list of links to all reference documents.

To qualify as an MEF-CECP, candidates must pass an 80-question multiple-choice examination covering the relevant aspects of Carrier Ethernet. The exam can be taken online at the candidate’s convenience – regulated by Web-based proctoring technology to ensure the security and integrity of the examination – or taken in an MEF-approved test facility.

Individuals also have the option of taking class training from an MEF Accredited Training Partners (MEF-ATP).
