SWITCH: Implementing Cisco Switched Networks v2

Leads to CCNP Routing and Switching Certification

Implementing Cisco Switched Networks (SWITCH) v2 is a five-day instructor-led training course, designed to help students prepare to plan, configure, and verify the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions for campus environments using the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture. These skills are validated in the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching certification, a professional-level certification specializing in the routing and switching field. This course is a component of the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching curriculum. This course is designed to give students a firm understanding of how to manage switches in an enterprise campus environment. This training class reinforces the instruction by providing students with hands-on labs.
