Cisco released updated versions of these exams. If you'd like to prepare for the newest version of the exam, please watch our Cisco CCNP Enterprise course.
In this advanced Cisco CCNP R&S training, Jeremy Cioara prepares network technicians to take the 300-101 ROUTE, 300-115 SWITCH, and 300-135 TSHOOT exams, which are the three exams required to earn the CCNP Routing and Switching certification.
This CCNP R&S training is professional-level Cisco training, which means it was designed for network technicians trying to advance into positions that lead to higher-level network administrator roles. After completing this CCNP training, you'll be prepped for three CCNP exams — and ready to reap the benefits that come with both Cisco training and certification.
For anyone who leads a networking team, this CCNP R&S training can be used for CCNP R&S exam prep, or as part of a team training plan.

Who Should Take CCNP R&S Training?
This CCNP R&S course is designed for network technicians with three to five years of experience with routing and switching.
New or aspiring network administrators. There’s often value in a newer IT professional cracking open a professional-level course, but the CCNP jumps right into advanced routing, switching, and troubleshooting topics. Networking professionals progress along the Cisco certification program from the entry-level technician (CCENT) to Associate level (CCNA) to Professional (CCNP) and finally Expert (CCIE). New network technicians should start with CCENT training or perhaps CCNA level training before diving into the advanced topics covered in the CCNP Routing and Switching.
Experienced network technicians. CCNP Routing and Switching training is designed for experienced network technicians with at least five years of practice administering complex Cisco network solutions. The training prepares students to become CCNP R&S certified and positions them for their next career step to the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) level.
