User Groups

The Cisco Press Cisco User Group Program provides qualified user groups with product news, discounted prices on products, and free review copies in exchange for reviews, marketing materials, and promotional giveaways. The program, in conjunction with the Pearson Education User Group Program, represents the publishing imprints and well-known technology brands of Addison-Wesley Professional, Cisco Press, Exam Cram, IBM Press, Prentice Hall, Que Publishing and Sams Publishing.

User groups are typically volunteer, not-for-profit organizations, or special interest groups focused on Cisco networking technologies or Cisco certifications. Companies and colleges are not included in the Cisco Press program. While we appreciate outside interest in our Cisco User Group Program, we respectively request that only leaders of legitimate Cisco User Groups apply.

To qualify, groups must have:

  • Active membership of 10 or more people
  • Valid and active website for shared information
  • Regular online or face-to-face meetings

Check out all the User Group benefits.

Once you register your User Group, Cisco Press will verify your information. Once qualified, the group will be considered active and will receive a member code and link on as an official Cisco User Group. We request that group leaders provide monthly attendance and/or contact information (members' e-mail addresses) to receive marketing collateral.
