The CCNP ROUTE course covers the most important topics of the CCNP ROUTE 642-902 Certification exam in a very detailed fashion. With this training course, you are not simply going to be able to pass the exam, but also get a higher level of knowledge than required by Cisco to award you the CCNP certification credentials.

We created this course from the beginning with the intention of raising the bar of the CCNP certification and reduce the gap with higher level certifications.

As a CCNP candidate you are expected to have deep knowledge on the following topics: EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, IPv6 and route redistribution.

We hope that after taking this course you will be ready to pass the CCNP ROUTE exam, and more importantly improve your routing protocols / general networking knowledge.

We are working right now to bring you videos of IPv6 for this exam as soon as possible.
