reBlog from CCNP Update: Changes in a Nutshell

I found this fascinating quote today:

  • CCNP will now be three exams, ROUTE, SWITCH, and TSHOOT

  • Exam price will increase from $150.00 to $200.00 per exam

  • ROUTE and TSHOOT courses (typically 1 week Cisco official courses) are now supplemented with e-learning material (nearly 8 hours for ROUTE and 9 hours for TSHOOT) which is exam material

  • Classes / Exams are becoming even MORE real-world (TSHOOT class is 92% hands-on)

  • New ROUTE and SWITCH exam is available in March, TSHOOT is available in April.

  • BSCI exam can substitute for ROUTE or vice versa

  • BCMSN exam can substitute for SWITCH or vice versa

  • ONT and ISCW exams can substitute for TSHOOT until end of July (ONT/ICSW exams expire then...BSCI and BCMSN are no longer offered after July 31, however can substitute for ROUTE / SWITCH for their entire 3 year expiration period).

  • New CCNP exams now prepare you more for the CCIE R&S
