London Metropolitan University has been recognised by Cisco for providing the best delivery of the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) curriculum in Europe. Our Cisco Academy is one of the very few places in the UK to have been certified by Cisco Systems to provide CCNP training. This course is designed for CCNA-qualified networking engineers.
We offer part-time and weekend courses in computer networks and internetworking. These programmes are structured to teach you the skills needed to design, build and maintain computer networks, and enable successful candidates to take the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) and Cisco Certified Networking Professional (CCNP) examinations.
Cisco currently dominates the router market and networking professionals need to be familiar with Cisco technologies. Today's corporations depend on their information networks for mission-critical operations and are looking for highly trained networking professionals to keep them up and running at maximum performance. Qualified networking experts are in short supply and they are therefore in high demand. There are currently more Cisco networking jobs available than professionals to fill them.
Enrolling in this course also entitles you to attend Free Technology Courses . These courses help you develop new concepts, new career skills and expand your understanding of the latest technologies.
Please note, you will need a Windows-based PC or laptop with internet connection if you wish to study the material outside the University premises.
The CCNP curriculum helps you to prepare for the Cisco CCNP certification exams. The CCNP certification validates a network professional’s ability to install, configure and troubleshoot converged local and wide-area networks. The CCNP course offers a career development path for Cisco CCNA-certified network engineers and a solid foundation for those who are interested in the Cisco CCIE® certification.
There are two certifications:
You must have:
CCNP courses can be taken in any order, however, it is recommended to take the CCNP ROUTE and SWITCH before CCNP TSHOOT.
If you are an international student, you will require a minimum English language qualification as detailed below (or equivalent):
You may also be eligible if you received high grades in English throughout your education or your education was undertaken in English.
For more information about how to take an IELTS exam (the preferred qualification), visit the British Council's website.
The course fee covers a maximum of two assessments for any short courses. If you cannot pass the exam after the second attempt, you will have to take the course again. This could mean taking the whole course again or just sitting an additional assessment. This will be decided by your instructor. There will be a fee for retaking the courses.
The training material for this qualification is covered by three individual courses of the Cisco Networking Academy Program (CNAP) over a period of approximately eight weeks per course for the full-time course and 13 weeks for the part-time course.
There are three parts to the course, which can be taken in any sequence:
This course teaches you how to implement, monitor and maintain routing services in an enterprise network. You'll learn how to plan, configure and verify the implementation of complex enterprise local area network (LAN) and wide area network (WAN) routing solutions, using a range of routing protocols. The course also covers the configuration of secure routing solutions to support branch offices and mobile workers. Comprehensive labs emphasise hands-on learning and practice to reinforce configuration skills.
CCNA-level knowledge and skills are required.
You'll learn how to implement, monitor and maintain switching in converged enterprise networks and how to plan, configure and verify the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions using the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture. The course also covers the secure integration of virtual LANs (VLANs), wireless LANs (WLANs), voice and video into campus networks. Comprehensive labs emphasise hands-on learning and practice to reinforce configuration skills.
CCNA-level knowledge and skills are required.
This course teaches you how to monitor and maintain complex, enterprise-routed and switched Internet Protocol (IP) networks. Skills learned include the planning and execution of regular network maintenance, as well as support and troubleshooting using technology-based processes and best practices in a systematic and Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL)-compliant approach. Extensive labs emphasise hands-on learning and practice to reinforce troubleshooting techniques.
