ENCOR and ENARSI courses are covered in a 10-day (M-F & M-F) boot camp designed to help participants achieve CCNP Enterprise certification. This instructor-led training begins the first week with the Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) v1.0 course giving participants the knowledge and skills needed to configure, troubleshoot and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks. Students also learn to implement security principles within an enterprise network and how to overlay network design by using solutions such as SD-Access and SD-WAN. In the second week, the Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services (ENARSI) v1.0 course covers knowledge participants need to install, configure, operate and troubleshoot an enterprise network. This course covers advanced routing and infrastructure technologies, expanding on the topics covered in the ENCOR course.

This course will help participants:

  • Configure, troubleshoot, and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks
  • Implement security principles within an enterprise network
  • Prepare to take the 350-401 Implementing Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) exam
  • Gain the knowledge you need to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot an enterprise network
  • Qualify for professional-level job roles in advance routing and services
  • Prepare for the Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services (300-410 ENARSI) exam

We use official Cisco courseware and labs and teach the classes as Cisco designed them to be taught. The CCNP Enterprise Bootcamp covers ENCOR during the first week and ENARSI during the second week. We refer to it as a bootcamp because the class covers all the material you will need for the certification, we include exam vouchers and you have the option to test during class if attending in person (Tampa).

Should everyone test during class? Nope! The class is not a brain dump! If you have a decent grasp of the material before attending and are just looking for a push prior to the exam, then you are a good candidate to test during class. Otherwise, you may need to continue to study for a few weeks after class and then take the exams. The course will teach you the material, our ExSim-Max practice exams will help you focus your studies to prepare for the exam and will give you a good indication of how ready you are for the exams. Participants can also have the option to take the two weeks of class back-to-back or in two different months!

Boot Camp includes:

  • Comprehensive study materials, including Boson NetSim (labs) AND ExSim-Max (practice exams) for ENCOR; 350-401 and ENARSI; 300-410
  • On-site certification testing; One exam voucher each for Cisco exam 350-401 and 300-410, plus one retake voucher (per exam, if-needed)

Note: this course is also taught by our CCIE instructor whom is also an authorized Cisco instructor.
