1. Overview

Based on the new ICT infrastructure featuring cloud-pipe-device synergy, Huawei provides infrastructure technical personnel, developers, and industry users with ICT Architecture Certification, ICT Developer Certification, and Industry ICT Certification, respectively. To meet ICT professionals' learning and advancement requirements, Huawei offers three levels of certification: Huawei Certified Network Associate (HCNA), Huawei Certified Network Professional (HCNP), and Huawei Certified Internetwork Expert (HCIE).

Huawei certification covers all ICT fields, which is in line with the trend of ICT convergence. With its leading talent development system and certification standards, Huawei is committed to developing new ICT professionals in the digital era and building a healthy ICT talent ecosystem.

The fourth revolution of science and technology, driven by ICT networks and AI, is leading us towards an intelligent world where all things can sense, all things are connected, and all things are intelligent.
