In the WAN service and support arena, Cisco certification assures proficiency in supporting Internetworks. Becoming a Cisco professional tells the customer or employer that you have passed Cisco’s strict testing requirements. The CCNP title is for the network professional looking to stand out from the crowd and demonstrate their mastery of LAN and WAN technologies.
Cisco requires many vendors, re-sellers and support providers to have CCNP’s on their staff because CCNP’s are recognized throughout the industry as competent support professionals. Network customers can feel confident that the support the Cisco professional provides is tested, Cisco-certified knowledge.
