CCNP

AMIRIT focus on providing the best line of training in routing and switching of scalable networks through campuses and intranet. CISCO created the CCNP certification to recognize advanced skills in computer networking and especially in the field of support and installation of LAN / WAN infrastructures. It also equips candidates to work on complex networking systems or work independently on solutions.

To apply for the CCNP exam, Entry-level Cisco certifications must be passed in advance.

  • • The associate-level certification programs are: CCNA Routing and Switching, CCNA Collaboration, CCNA Industrial etc.
  • • Each area of a CCNP license requires passing the relevant exams for certification of the professional understanding and capability of networking.

For example, the CCNP Routing and Switching consists of three exams: [3] Implementing Cisco IP Routing, Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks and Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks
