What are Cisco Learning Credits?
Cisco Learning Credits are a form of pre-paid training and offer the unrivaled ability to purchase, redeem and manage Cisco authorized training, empowering you to optimize your Cisco network investment. Learning Credits may be added to your purchase order when ordering other Cisco products or purchased separately. Each Cisco Learning Credit (sold in packs of 10, 100, 500 and 1500) pays for US$100 worth of high-quality training, is valid for one year, and enables you to:
- Secure training budget upfront and prepay in the form of credits at time of product purchase or separately
- Streamline administrative processes by reducing expense reimbursements with a single budget and purchase order
- Use the Training Map to determine how many Learning Credits to purchase
- Work with Fast Lane to develop a customized and flexible training plan
- Redeem Learning Credits with Fast Lane
- Manage and track training expenditure online with the Learning Credit Management Tool, available anytime
Authorized training increases the technical competencies of your IT staff and enables them to more effectively manage and operate an integrated network solution. Getting the training you need at the right time will increase productivity, reduce the cost of network ownership and help drive the adoption of new technologies for a competitive edge.
Training Needs Assessment
When your goals are straightforward, it may be easy to establish a training plan. But most organizations have more complex needs. Assessing those needs and determining the appropriate Cisco training plan requires skill and experience and that’s where Fast Lane can help. Fast Lane offers a comprehensive Training Needs Assessment to help customers identify their network training needs and develop the best training plan.
The Cisco Training Map correlates available training with Cisco products and technology/solution areas. The tool includes an estimator, to assist in determining how many credits to purchase, and links to complete course descriptions and course registration information. Ask us about it.

Credits are managed through a unique online tool that tracks transactions, validates redemptions, and sends monthly statements. The Learning Credit Management Tool, available anytime, enables customers to view their credit balance, review account transactions, monitor the courses taken by individuals and departments and generate reports.
