Why Take CCNP Training?
Having a Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) certification validates your ability to implement and troubleshoot both LAN and WAN networks. In addition, you will be recognized as a person who can collaborate with specialists on issues related to voice, wireless, advanced security and video solutions.
Who Should Take The CCNP Training?
CCNP training and certification is suitable for those with at least one year of experience in networking. Individuals who obtain the certification are known to possess a precious skill-set that is required in enterprise roles such as network engineer, systems engineer, support engineer, network technician and more. However You will no longer need to get CCNA certified before attempting for CCNP training and certification.
What Jobs Are There For A CCNP?
CCNP training and certification qualifies you for many different jobs such as IT manager; computer and information systems manager; network engineer; computer systems and network administrator; computer network architect or engineer projects, just to name a few.
