CCNP Data Center Certification and Training

CCNA 200-301

CCNP Data Center Certification and


Technology advances are generating more data than ever before, by enabling new
applications and businesses that connect everything—people, devices, and machines.
With intent-based networking, data center teams can take advantage of automation
to scale and secure their infrastructure. To capitalize on these opportunities, today’s
data center professionals need a broader range of skills and deeper focus in strategic
technology areas. The CCNP Data Center certification program gives you exactly that
breadth and depth.
CCNP Data Center certification was designed to help you prove your skills in the
ever-changing landscape of data center technologies. The certification covers core
technologies and a data center focus area of your choice. You choose where you
want to focus. You choose where to take your career.

To earn CCNP Data Center, you pass two exams: a core exam and a data center concentration exam of your choice. And now every exam in the CCNP Data Center program earns an individual Specialist certification, so you get recognized for your accomplishments along the way.

  • The core exam focuses on your knowledge of data center infrastructure. The core exam is also the qualifying exam for CCIE Data Center certification. Passing this exam helps toward earning both of these certifications.
  • Concentration exams focus on emerging and industry-specific topics. You can prepare for concentration exams by taking their corresponding Cisco training courses.

CCNP Data center Training
We have put together a solid Five-day course for each of the CCNP Security module and six Saturdays only for the weekend class.


There are no formal prerequisites for CCNP Data Center, but you should have a good understanding of the exam topics before taking the exam. CCNP candidates often also have three to five years of experience implementing data center solutions.
