Which courses are part of the new Cisco CCNP® v curriculum?

A The Networking Academy CCNP v curriculum exams consist of three new courses: ● CCNP: Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE), which replaces Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI), is scheduled for release in July

Why is the online curriculum being replaced by a book?

A Networking Academy wanted the CCNP curriculum update to meet with the release of the new certification exams to help ensure that the curriculum is relevant to the needs of students and academies Those who cannot come and directly take the training we are also planned to provide online certificate training This made us to focus on the development of other course components which are highly valued by the Networking Academy CCNP community

How will Networking Academy guarantee the alignment of the textbooks with other course components?

An All course components, including the books, are also part of an instructional design that guarantees their consistency and alignment We are in close collaboration with Cisco Press to make sure that the study guides traditionally published by Cisco Press align with the Networking Academy CCNP courses
