Exams Towards this Certification

This intermediate Cisco training prepares learners to earn the DevNet Professional certification, which means earning two exams — one core exam (350-901 DEVCOR) and one of eight concentration exams. This playlist includes training for the 300-435 ENAUTO concentration exam.

Don't feel bad if you're not sure what a DevNet certification is — Cisco only released their series of DevNet certifications in February 2020, and plenty of people are still figuring out what a "DevNet Professional" does. But Cisco has made one thing clear: what a DevNet professional knows how to do. A DevNet Professional uses Cisco APIs, programmability strategies, and security and network ops to develop automation and DevOps applications. The DevNet certification track is all about how to develop apps which harness Cisco technologies and tools to bring the various domains of automation, infrastructure as code, Internet of Things, DevOps and Webex under one skillset. This DevNet Professional training prepares a network engineer for earning Cisco's third and (currently) highest certification in their track of three DevNet certs. For anyone who manages their Cisco training, this Cisco training can be used for DevNet Professional certification prep, onboarding new network engineers, individual or team training plans, or as a Cisco reference resource.
