CCNP

 

Title: Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP – Version 7)

Duration: 4 months

Venue: AFRALTI, Nairobi Kenya

Course Overview The CCNP Program is a comprehensive program, which provides students with the Internet technology skills essential in a global economy. The Program delivers Web-based content, assessment, student performance monitoring, hands-on labs, certified instructor training and support, and preparation for industry-standard certifications.

CCNP certification validates a network professional’s ability to install, configure and troubleshoot converged local and wide area networks with 100 to 500 or more nodes. Network Professionals who achieve the CCNP have demonstrated the knowledge and skills required to manage the routers and switches that form the network core, as well as edge applications that integrate voice, wireless, and security into the network.

Prerequisites Valid Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) R&S certification or higher is recommended for students to enroll in the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) curriculum and thorough knowledge and understanding of LAN / WAN and Internet technologies.

CCNP Modules (1) 300-101 ROUTE: Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE)

(2) 300-115 SWITCH: Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH)

(3) 300-135 TSHOOT: Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks (TSHOOT)
