Get your CCNA and CCNP certification faster and cheaper with our combined training program
Our CCNA + CCNP Combo prepares you for all three exams you need to advance to being a Certified Cisco Network Professional at a discounted price.
Starting with the CCNA training we'll guide you through the world of installing, configuring, and running LAN, WAN, as well as dial access services for small networks. You'll also discover how to use IP, IGRP, Serial, Frame Relay, IP RIP, VLANs, RIP, and Ethernet protocols.
You'll then move on to CCNP Enterprise training. To qualify for CCNP certification you need to take a core exam and an elective one. TrainACE CCNP training currently focuses on the ENCOR and ENARSI exams. This most closely follows the old CCNP Route, Switch and TSHOOT certification.
With years of industry experience under their belt, our Cisco CCNA instructors have a minimum of the CCNA certification – and our CCNP Instructors have CCNP or CCIE as well as accreditation from other vendors.
We also work with individual organizations to create custom Cisco training programs. These are tailored for specific needs and can be delivered at your offices.

Why Take The CCNA + CCNP Training Combo?
Cisco networks dominate the IT world. If you are planning on working in Systems Admin or Network Engineering roles, then you are extremely likely to have to work with Cisco equipment during your career. Equally, if your intent is to move into cybersecurity, understanding how Cisco systems work would be a huge benefit in ethical hacking and risk management roles.
But why take a combined class?
Obtaining CCNA and CCNP certification requires you to pass three exams:
- The CCNA exam.
- The core CCNP exam (ENCOR) and
- A specialization exam (e.g., ENARSI).
Depending on your budget, time and personal learning style, you can enroll in training for each exam separately, or you can enroll in a combined class that covers all three.
If you're relatively new to networking, and you're looking for a measured, step-by-step approach to your career, with time in between certifications, or, you have a tight budget, enrolling in classes one at a time maybe your best option.
If you already have some experience with networking and Cisco systems and are looking to get through your certifications at a steady pace our combined class gives you the following advantages:
- It's cheaper - Enrolling in the CCNA + CCNP Combo is 38% cheaper than enrolling in each class individually. That's a savings of $2,685.
- Skills re-enforcement - Because each class builds on the last, with some overlap, committing to taking them consecutively re-enforces skills you learned previously.
- It's faster - Enrolling in a combined class keeps your training moving right along. Enrolling in classes one at a time can lead to procrastination and missed opportunities.
- Keeps you focused - Committing to the full CCNA + CCNP program keeps you focused on attending classes and getting the most out of them. There's much less chance you will keep putting off the next step in your development if you have enrolled in the Combo.
What you need to know before taking the CCNA + CCNP Training Combo
While CCNA is an entry-level course and has no prerequisites it's recommended that you have some networking and Cisco experience before undertaking CCNP certification. If you are new to IT and have limited network experience we would recommend that you enroll in the CCNA class individually and build up some experience before taking the CCNP classes.
Our CCNA + CCNP Training Combo class is ideal for anyone who has built up some experience working with networks and Cisco but has not yet taken formal training. Or students who need to refresh their CCNA knowledge prior to undertaking the CCNP training and exams.
Exam and Certification Requirements:
- CCNA 200-301
- CCNP ENCOR 350-401
- CCNP ENARSI 300-410
