What is the CCNP?

Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) validates the ability to plan, implement, verify and troubleshoot local and wide-area enterprise networks and work collaboratively with specialists on advanced security, voice, wireless and video solutions. The CCNP certification is appropriate for those with at least one year of networking experience who are ready to advance their skills and work independently on complex network solutions. Those who achieve CCNP have demonstrated the skills required in enterprise roles such as network technician, support engineer, systems engineer or network engineer.

After becoming certified you will have the skills and knowledge to:

  • Implement appropriate technologies to build a scalable routed network
  • Build campus networks using multilayer switching technologies
  • Improve traffic flow, reliability, redundancy, and performance for campus LANs, routed and switched WANs, and remote access networks
  • Create and deploy a global intranet

As a prerequisite to take this course you need to already have a CCNA - Routing and Switching Certification.

Six Reasons to Gain a Cisco Certification.

Six Reasons to Gain a Cisco Certification

In 2017, Cisco completed a study targeted at understanding the value of Cisco certification for employers of Cisco certified professionals. Designed to measure employer perceptions about employees with Cisco certifications, the study specifically focused on how employers measure the value of Cisco certified individuals in their business. Three-quarters of 200 network managers surveyed concurred that their Cisco certified employees are more knowledgeable and more valuable than their non-certified employees.
