Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Routing and Switching

If you manage local and wide area networks in your role, a CCNP certification is invaluable. The certification will validate your ability to manage routers and switches that form the network core as well as edge applications that integrate voice, wireless and security into the network.

If you’ve had at least one year of networking experience but would like to advance your skills, this certification will give you the credentials you need and will allow you to work in roles such as a network technician, support engineer, systems engineer or network engineer.

This Skillsoft course will train you in everything you need to know to pass the exam for the Cisco Certified Network Professional certification. You'll need to sit this exam separately.
