How many people are certified??

Is there anywhere to go to see how many people in the world are CCNA, CCDA, CCNP, CCIE, MCSE certified and so forth? I am kind of curious.

Thanks,

Steven

    Well from what I have heard there are only 1,000 CCIE's in the world. That's all I know.
    CCNP Security - DONE!
    CCNP R&S - In Progress...
    CCIE Security - Future...

    there are more than a 1000, probably 10,000; but that, compared to the rest, is still like a drop in the ocean water. I know many people who have the cert's mentioned by halflife excluding CCIE. Many of them are actually on this very site (Congratulations icon_lol.gif).

    that was interesting about CCIE in other rich countries.. where I might move myself to a place where they have low number of ccie's.

    but I wish we can find out how many CCNPs..

    I have been considering focusing more on storage as a specialization, since my company is implementing a new SAN and I am learning a lot about them. Then I saw that there were only 99 Storage CCIEs in the world and I'm thinking those folks must be making some serious money. I know voice is hot right now, but do you really think we are going to stop storing data anytime soon?

    I don't think Google will stop needing storage anytime soon. ;) And I bet more than a few of those 99 Storage CCIEs are working for Google or Yahoo!.


    And here's the offical counts for (ISC)2 certs, but this list hasn't been updated since April 2007.

    I've never found an updated list on www.comptia.org. The latest reported figures are over 900,000 CompTIA cert holders total with 700,000 of them being the A+ cert, 180,000 for Network+, and 32,000 for Security+.
