Cisco Certified Network Professional Enterprise (CCNP)

Achieving Cisco Certified Network Professional Enterprise (CCNP) certification proves your skills with enterprise networking solutions. The certification covers core technologies and an enterprise focus area of your choice.

  • The CCNP Enterprise program includes two courses:

    1. Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR)

    The Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) course gives you the knowledge and skills needed to configure, troubleshoot and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks. You will also learn to implement security principles, implement automation and programmability within an enterprise network, and how to overlay network design by using SD-Access and SD-WAN solutions.

    2. Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services (ENARSI)

    Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services (ENARSI) gives you the knowledge you need to install, configure, operate and troubleshoot an enterprise network. This course covers advanced routing and infrastructure technologies, expanding on the topics covered in the Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) course.
