Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) validates the ability to plan, implement, verify and troubleshoot local and wide-area enterprise networks and work  with specialists on advanced security, voice, wireless and video solutions. Individuals who receive the CCNP designation have demonstrated the skills required in enterprise roles such as network technician, support engineer, systems engineer or network engineer.

Cisco Implementing IP Routing

Our Cisco Implementing IP Routing course is one of three courses needed to become a Cisco Certified Network Professional CCNP®.  This training course provides students with the skills necessary to be successful on the qualifying exam ROUTE 300-101. Successful completion of this course will certify that candidate has the knowledge and skills necessary to use advanced IP addressing and routing in implementing secure Cisco ISR routers connected to LANs and WANs. 

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.

Prerequisite(s): CCNA Certification
