What Is Cisco Certified Network Professional?

Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is professional-level certification after CCNA. As a prerequisite, you have to either go for CCNA or CCIE to get CCNP certified. Cisco is the world leader in Networking with the largest user base of large-scale industries. Almost every industry is using Cisco products for their networking needs. So the need of certified professionals is intensifying.

With Cisco, you’ll be exclusively ready to take your career in whatever direction you want to go. This is one of the best choices for college graduates to enter into the networking world as Cisco has the greatest market share globally. We at Rack Professionals, are not aiming on certification only, but will give you hands-on training on the cisco network. Cisco Certification gives you a unique identity and will apart you from other skilled professionals with an exquisite CCNP Certified Badge.

Why CCNP Wireless Certification?
