This new CCNP Service Provider certification proves your skills with service provider solutions. To earn the CCNP Service Provider certification, you will need to pass two exams:  a core exam and a service provider concentration of your choosing, allowing you to focus your training on a technology that is most relevant to you.

  • The core exam focuses on your knowledge of service provider infrastructures.
