Where to Go from Here

Passing the DCICN 640-911 exam moves you one step closer to a CCNA Data Center certification, but it does not complete the task. Your next step after DCICN is simple: study for and pass the DCICT 640-916 exam. Then consider when to tackle the next big hurdle: CCNP Data Center.
