Many network engineers have difficulties in making a choice between Huawei certification and Cisco certification because the manufacturers that launched these two certifications are both large manufacturers with high popularity in the industry. In terms of the expert level IE certification, both CCIE certificate and HCIE certificate are very valuable, and many people will hesitate. So how to make a choice out of these two certifications? You can firstly look at the training fees and registration fees of CCIE certification and HCIE certification.
CCIE certification training fees
The cost of CCIE certification training mainly depends on whether you have a knowledge foundation. Students with zero foundation need to start from CCNA certification, and the price is about 2,800 US dollars which is actually a preferential price for activities. If you have a certain foundation, you can choose to study by yourself for CCIE written exam – Grab them here and then take part in the training for CCIE lab exam. The price is about 1,800 US dollars. Or you can take the training for both CCIE written exam and experimental exam which costs about 2,133 US dollars. It is obvious that the lowest price is above 1,000 US dollars.
CCIE registration fees
The registration fees for CCIE written exam and lab exam are different. The written exam costs 400 US dollars. The lab exam registration fee is related to the exam site. If you chooses to take it in Beijing, the fee is about 1,800 US dollars. If you chooses Hong Kong, it is 1,600 US dollars. If you chooses a mobile exam site, it will be more expensive, about 1,900 US dollars. You can consult SPOTO for details.
HCIE certification training fees
The price of SPOTO HCIE training may be slightly different in different directions, and like CCIE, you can choose different class types according to your need. If you don’t have any foundation, you can choose HCIE-Through-Train which starts from HCIA certification. The price of this package is 2,133 US dollars. If you have a certain foundation and want only the training of HCIE which teaches the relevant contents of written exam + experimental exam, the preferential price is about 1,800 US dollars. In addition to the first two classes, there is also a CCIE certification course that only trains you to take the experimental exam. After the discount, it is about 1,466 US dollars.
HCIE registration fee
HCIE certification is also divided into written exam and experimental exam. This is the new version. There was an interview in the old version. The registration fee for the written exam is 300 US dollars. The registration fee for the old version of HCIE experimental exam and interview is calculated together, and the total price is 1,333 US dollars. Now, although the new version only includes the new HCIE experimental exam, the fee still remains the same.
Which costs less, CCIE certification training or HCIE certification training? In fact, it is not difficult to see from the above that the overall cost of both HCIE certification and CCIE certification is high. Training and registration may cost more than 3,000 US dollars, but in fact, these two certifications are of high value. After you pass them, the value they can create must be higher than the cost, so don’t hesitate if you want to take the exam. On the whole, the price of HCIE will be a little lower than that of CCIE, but it will not be much lower. Therefore, when choosing, you can make a reference. It is best to consider your future career planning. If you want to develop in a foreign enterprise or abroad, CCIE may be better. If you want to develop in China, you can choose HCIE.
