    Additional FAQs

    What is the difference between the CCNP ENCOR and ENARSI exams?

    The CCNP Enterprise certification requires passing two exams - the core ENCOR exam and one concentration exam, such as ENARSI. The ENCOR (Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies) exam focuses on your knowledge of enterprise infrastructure including dual-stack architecture, virtualization, network assurance, security, and automation.

    The ENARSI (Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services) exam concentrates on advanced routing and infrastructure services. It validates your skills with Layer 3 technologies, VPN services, infrastructure security and services, and infrastructure automation. So ENCOR provides the core foundation while ENARSI builds on that with more advanced enterprise networking topics.

    What topics are covered in a Cisco CCNP ENCOR and ENARSI training course?

    A comprehensive Cisco CCNP Enterprise ENCOR and ENARSI training course will teach you the skills needed to design, implement, configure, and troubleshoot complex enterprise networks. The ENCOR part covers core enterprise technologies like routing, switching, wireless, security, and network automation.

    The ENARSI portion dives deeper into advanced infrastructure services and routing, including advanced addressing and routing solutions, advanced enterprise campus networks, WAN, network services, and software-defined access (SDA). Hands-on labs allow you to practice configuring and troubleshooting these technologies in real-world scenarios. The course prepares you for both the ENCOR and ENARSI exams required for CCNP Enterprise certification.

    How can the CCNP Enterprise certification benefit my IT career?

    Earning the Cisco CCNP Enterprise certification validates your skills to design, implement, and troubleshoot enterprise wired and wireless networks. It proves you have expertise in core areas like routing, switching, security, and automation, as well as advanced knowledge of infrastructure services and routing.

    The CCNP Enterprise is one of the most in-demand and well-respected certifications for networking professionals. It qualifies you for jobs like network engineer, systems engineer, network administrator, and technical solutions architect. CCNP-certified professionals often earn over $100,000 per year on average. The certification provides career flexibility and advancement opportunities as you deepen your skills across core and advanced enterprise networking technologies.

    Do I need to take the ENCOR and ENARSI exams at the same time to get CCNP certified?

    No, you can take the ENCOR and ENARSI exams in any order and with any amount of time between them to earn your CCNP Enterprise certification. Many people choose to take the ENCOR exam first since it covers the core topics that ENARSI builds upon.

    Once you pass one of the exams, you have 3 years from that date to pass the other exam and earn your full CCNP certification. During that time, you will hold the Cisco Certified Specialist certification for the exam you passed, either Enterprise Core or Enterprise Advanced Infrastructure Implementation. Taking the exams separately allows you to study and master one set of topics at a time on your path to CCNP.

    What are the prerequisites for taking a CCNP ENCOR and ENARSI training course?

    While there are no formal prerequisites for CCNP-level courses or exams, you should have a strong foundation in networking concepts and experience before attempting the CCNP Enterprise certification.

    Most students pursuing CCNP Enterprise have already earned their CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) certification or have equivalent knowledge from 3-5 years of networking job experience. You should be comfortable with network fundamentals, basic routing and switching, and common protocols before diving into the more advanced topics in CCNP Enterprise courses. However, the training will review the fundamentals before progressing to the advanced topics covered on the ENCOR and ENARSI exams.
