Create new career opportunities by being Cisco CCNP certified with the CCNP-SCOR (350-701) course and lab. The CCNP security training course and lab comprehensively cover the 350-701 SCOR exam objectives and expertise in the areas such as network security, cloud security, content security, endpoint protection, and detection, secure network access, visibility, and enforcement, and more. The CCNP certification training guide is equipped with comprehensive learning resources to help you deploy and configure Site-to-Site VPNs in Cisco Routers.

Here's what you will get

The CCNP Security certification validates your knowledge of security solutions. You must pass two tests to acquire the CCNP Security certification: one on core security technologies and one on a security concentration of your choice. The core exam is designed to test your understanding of security infrastructure. Exams that focus on emerging and industry-specific issues are called concentration exams.

  • Candidates who fail an Associate, Professional, or Specialist exam must wait a period of five (5) calendar days, beginning the day after the failed attempt, before they may retest for the same exam.
  • Candidates who fail any Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIE) certification or Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE) written exam must wait for a period of 15 calendar days, beginning the day after the failed attempt, before retaking the same exam.
  • Once passed, a candidate must wait a minimum of 180 days before taking the same exam with an identical exam number.
  • Candidates who violate these policies are in violation of the agreement. Such conduct is strictly prohibited as described in the¬†Cisco certification and confidentiality agreement.
