In this advanced Cisco Design Professional training, Jeremy Cioara prepares learners to take the 300-101 ROUTE, 300-115 SWITCH, and 300-320 ARCH exams, which are the three exams required to earn the CCDP certification.
Networks need to be built and maintained. That’s the job of the network engineer. They also need to be designed properly to support network performance, availability, and scalability. That’s the job of the network designer. This CCNP is aimed at IT professionals who are seeking to advance their network design skills.
After completing this Cisco training you'll know how to implement IP switched networks. You’ll also learn to plan, configure, and verify the implementation of Cisco enterprise switched solutions.
For supervisors, this Design Professional training can be used for 300-101 ROUTE, 300-115 SWITCH, and 300-320 ARCH exam prep, on-boarding new network designers, or as part of a team training plan.
CCDP: What You Need to Know
This CCDP training maps to the Cisco 300-101 ROUTE, 300-115 SWITCH, and 300-320 ARCH exams objectives, and covers topics including:
- Network design hardware and software
- Switch design, configuration, installation, and maintenance, including L3 Switching
- Routing protocols and how to choose between them
- Data center issues such as using bandwidth effectively and scaling architecture
- Network management
Who Should Take CCDP Training?
This Design Professional training is considered professional-level Cisco training, which means it was designed for network designers. This 300-101 ROUTE, 300-115 SWITCH, and 300-320 ARCH course is designed for network designers with three to five years of experience with Cisco infrastructure.
Experienced network designers. If you’re going for your CCDP, then you’ve already gotten your CCNA and CCDA, so you know what’s in store. Professional-level Cisco certifications are tough, and this is one of the tougher ones. That’s particularly the case because the CCDP has a strong hands-on component. You not only need to know how to design networks, but also demonstrate that you can design, maintain, and troubleshoot them. This CCDP training covers both the high-level design knowledge you need as well as the hands-on components.
