Our Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) certification training course provides students with the knowledge and skills that are necessary to plan, configure, and verify the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions using Cisco Architecture. The course also covers secure integration of VLANs, WLANs and voice into campus networks. Our course prepares students for the SWITCH 300-115 exam which will certify that the successful candidate has knowledge and ability to use Cisco’s Campus Enterprise Architecture.

CCNP certification requires three exams. The Cisco Certified Network Professional Complete Training Package includes the three major required courses for certification: 300-101 ROUTE Implementing Cisco IP Routing, 300-115 SWITCH Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks and 300-135 TSHOOT Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks.

This course includes access to a hands-on Practice-Lab which will allow candidates to have training in the practical application of the course concepts without having to buy any additional software and will prepare them for success on the certification exam.
