Since this course prepares learners for configuring, administering and troubleshooting carrier-class networks, the ideal candidates are experienced networking professionals who see service provider administration on the horizon. The skills necessary for administering service provider networks are rare and particular, learn to harness them.
No, Cisco retired the CCNA Service Provider in 2020 along with all of their specialized CCNAs, so this course is no longer associated with any valid certifications. Cisco retired the many different focused CCNAs like CCNA Service Provider and CCNA Collaboration and created a new, all-purpose CCNA.
Cisco may have retired the CCNA Service Provider in 2020, but the information on this course remains valid and can help you prepare for the CCNP Service Provider, although it's not everything you'll need to pass that professional-level exam. The CCNA will also be easier after this training.
Because service provider networks aren't just massive and sprawling, but also complex and require advanced training to administer, network administrators often have to wait in lower-tier positions before moving up to service provider network administration. You can skip the line and fast-track your career with this training.
