A CCNA and a CCNP automatically qualify for Silver. If you can prove more experience you can go Gold.
You can apply here: http://nav6.org/ipv6forum/application/verify.php

Say whaaa? if you are a CCNA you can get this gratis?

If so I wonder why I never heard of it before...

Yep

And also a correction on my part. Gold is Professional and Expert level. Silver is Associate.

So upon attempting to apply, I've ran into some difficulties. Are there specific instructions on this?
Routerdork, your link takes you to a page where you are told to input what you wish to apply for and "IPv6 website..." - is this your own website?

Looking at the learning network page it seems many people have issues with the website working in general. Broken links etc. Also, an employee of Cisco states:
I apologize for the confusion. Our courses and certifications are certified by the IPv6 forum.


Attending/passing them does not provide a candidate IPv6 certification. Again, to clarify, IPv6 certification from any vendor, courses/certification/products/etc does not certify any individual. It just certifies the content of the products, courses and exams.


However,
John I think this article is still very confusing. The blue table tittled "IPv6 Forum Logo Guidelines" appears to clearly say, for example, that:


If a candidate has passed CCNP they fall under the "gold" IPv6Forum certification category and can use the logo that identifies them as a "certified engineer".


This is directly contradicted by your statement that -- in relation to certification courses -- "Attending/passing them does not provide a candidate IPv6 certification.".


Routerdork, what did you need to do to be able to apply?
Thanks,
Meanwhile, back in the city...

If you're using your Cisco cert as the credentials for this you need to enter Cisco's website. Took me awhile too and it took look long to hear back I actually applied twice thinking the first one got lost.

Would you happen to have a link at all? I tried to find it earlier but could not. Or tell me which section of the Cisco.com site?
Thank you,

Apply for the IPv6 enabled program for your web site to show that you are publishing your Education program on an IPv6-enabled web site http://www.ipv6forum.com/ipv6_enabled/



Step 2:

Fill out the Application form online below, click on "I agree" to accept the terms & conditions of this program and then press the "submit" button


I do not have my own website, let alone one which is reachable via its IPv6 address.. This is confusing?

When you select the training provider(any of the Cisco ones) it should automatically put the address in the website line for you which comes up as ipv6.cisco.com

Which logo are you applying for?
This link will get you what you need for your Cisco certs...http://nav6.org/ipv6forum/application/verify.php
Just select from the drop down menu the level you are applying for, in your case as a CCNP you get Certified Network Engineer(Gold) automatically :)

Any idea how long it takes them? I filled mine in to the best of my ability but I didn't see anything asking about what certs you had or your cisco ID

Or do they contact you for that stuff?

I wondered too how they verify. I applied for Gold based off of reading some other forums that said if you could prove operational experience at the Gold level. It was so long ago I can't remember if I gave them any of our IPv6 websites, address range, or what.
I'm pretty sure I applied last summer. I hadn't heard a thing from them until I got the email a couple weeks ago stating it.

I'm just a bit concerned about sending my personal details to a site registered in Malaysia for IPv6 that ironically, doesn't have a quad-A record!
