CCNP – Cisco Certified Network professional. This is the advanced level certification program from Cisco. This is meant for professionals who want to gain a deeper understanding of networking technologies with an emphasis on planning and implementing LANs and WANs. The CCNP program helps the engineer bring together technologies like wireless, VoIP, security into a comprehensive whole.

We offer the CCNP as three specialized courses-Routing and Switching, Security and Voice. The prerequisite for each is a CCNA in the respective specializations. The CCNP program is taught by senior network engineers in a world class environment with state of the art labs and infrastructure.
