CCNP Enterprise v8 Curriculum Description
In this curriculum, Cisco Networking Academy™ participants learn, apply, and practice CCNP Enterprise knowledge and skills through a series of in-depth hands-on experiences that reinforce their learning. The CCNP Enterprise v8 curriculum is presented in two courses that provide integrated and comprehensive coverage of professional-level networking technologies. Upon completion of each course, learners will be prepared to take the certification exam associated with that course. The two course are as follows:
• CCNP Enterprise: Core Networking (CCNP ENCOR v8) – aligns to the Cisco Press CCNP and CCIE Enterprise Core ENCOR 350-401 Official Cert Guide and the Implementing Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR 350-401) certification exam. The ENCOR course includes implementation of core enterprise network technologies including dual stack (IPv4 and IPv6) architecture, virtualization, infrastructure, network assurance, security, and automation.
• CCNP Enterprise: Advanced Routing (CCNP ENARSI v8) – aligns to the Cisco Press CCNP Enterprise Advanced Routing ENARSI 300-410 Official Cert Guide and the Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services (ENARSI 300-
