CCNP objectives

You achieve the CCNP certification by passing the following three exams during the Infosec CCNP boot camp:

  • Implementing Cisco IP Routing (300-101): Administrators of medium-to-large network sites will learn to use advanced routing to provide scalability for Cisco routers that are connected to LANs and WANs. You will practice implementing techniques in hands-on labs, learning to dramatically increase the number of routers and sites instead of redesigning the network when additional sites or wiring configurations are added.
  • Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (300-115): You will learn to plan, configure and verify the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions for campus  environments using the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture.
  • Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks (300-135): You will gain the skills needed to maintain complex networks and to diagnose and resolve network problems quickly and effectively. You will learn troubleshooting and maintenance procedures and reinforce the concepts by putting them to use in a controlled lab environment.
