Is Advanced Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Training right for you?

You’re ready to build upon your Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) courses, adding more complex network configurations, diagnosis and troubleshooting strategies.

You’re looking for Cisco courses that are geared towards the working adult, offered in the evening.

Does this sound like you? If so, Ranken’s advanced training for CCNP certification could be the right choice for you. Ranken’s known approach to hands-on learning and equipment-to-student ratio is among the best of all Cisco Networking Academies in the St. Louis area.

Why choose Ranken for CCNP certification?

Ranken is not only a certified Cisco Networking Academy, but also the 2008 awardee of the prestigious Cisco “4R” award in the category of academic rigor.

The CCNP curriculum builds upon Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) courses, adding more complex network configurations, diagnosis and troubleshooting strategies. These courses are designed for individuals wishing to become network engineers, network administrators and network technicians.

Geared towards the working adult, classes are conveniently offered in the evening, meeting just twice a week, from 6–10 p.m.

Students may enroll in the CCNP program once they have successfully completed CCNA training within the Cisco Networking Academy or if they have a current CCNA certification.

Upon successful completion all of CCNP courses, students may wish to continue their education goals. Ranken offers a Bachelor of Science in Applied Management now, with an emphasis in Management Information Systems (MIS).

In as little as 13 months, you can earn your CCNP while concurrently earning credit hours toward your future degree.
