MEF Accredited Training Providers (MEF-ATPs)

MEF Certified Professionals for Ethernet Academy

MEF-NF & MEF-CECP Training Solutions


Instructor-led training through an MEF-ATP is the preparation method used by more than 80% of successful MEF-CECP candidates. MEF-NF Training is now offered through MEF-ATPs.

MEF has developed a network of Accredited Training Providers (MEF-ATPs) to provide MEF-NF and MEF-CECP training. These industry subject matter experts have each been audited by MEF to ensure that their courseware meets or exceeds the requirements for their students to achieve not only MEF-CECP, but the latest MEF-NF certification.

Most MEF-ATPs offer class training, or private onsite for corporate groups MEF-CECP training in almost any location worldwide. Most will also administer the MEF-CECP exam immediately following their training class.

While the MEF accreditation program verifies the basic competency of the training companies in the MEF-ATP network, there are a number of individual factors—including the number of Carrier Ethernet professionals taught by the MEF-ATP, the cumulative pass rate, length, and tuition cost of the course—that the MEF does not regulate and should be considered when evaluating a MEF-ATP company.

Why study with an MEF-ATP rather than going at it alone?

  • MEF-CECP and MEF-NF training programs range from two to five days. This training significantly reduces your study time.
  • Learn from subject matter experts that have been audited and are regularly monitored by MEF.
  • Nothing beats an interactive, instructor-led learning experience!
