Recommended Training Path for CCNP and CCDP

The recommended training path for the Cisco CCNP 2.0 and CCDP 2.0 professional level certifications is as follows:

• Building Scalable Cisco Networks (BSCN)—Covers the advanced routing protocols and the scaling issues involved with a large routed network with multiple protocols.

• Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN)—Covers the switch infrastructure and the configuration in a large network environment.

• Building Cisco Remote Access Networks (BCRAN)—Covers the dialup and RAS issues involved in large scale remote access designs and implementations.

The CCNP then requires Cisco Internetworking Troubleshooting (CIT) as the final course. The CCDP requires Cisco Internetwork Design (CID) as the final course.

The recommended training courses will give you the basics to pass the exams for the CCNP or CCDP track. Cisco's exams, however, will not necessarily correspond one-to-one with the curriculum of a given class. In essence, Cisco is not looking at the exams as a "fact-stuffing event" but rather as a gauge of how well you know and can use the technology.

Figure 1-1 illustrates the training track for CCNP and CCDP as of September 2000.
