What are the changes in new CCNA?
The current Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) will be retired. At the Associate level will be the new CCNA, which will validate a broad range of foundational knowledge and skills. It will have just one exam covering networking and security fundamentals, as well as automation and programmability. Previously, CCNA candidates typically had to take multiple exams to earn one of 10 different CCNA certifications. The new CCNA exam (#200-301) is scheduled to go live Feb. 24, 2020. The new CCNA will replace these current certifications:
• CCNA Cloud
• CCNA Industrial
• CCNA Collaboration
• CCNA Routing and Switching
• CCNA Cyber Ops
• CCNA Security
• CCNA Data Center
• CCNA Service Provider
• CCDA Design
• CCNA Wireless.
What are the changes in CCNP?
Most CCNP certifications will also be retiring. Right now, networking professionals start a specialization track at the CCNA level. For example, CCNA Security leads to CCNP Security. However, after February 24, 2020, the one CCNA exam (200-301 CCNA) will cover networking basics and then you specialize at the CCNP level. You will be required to pass 2 exams: a core exam and one concentration exam. Here’s the complete list of the new CCNPs:
• CCNP Enterprise
• CCNP Collaboration
• CCNP Security
• CCNP Data Center
• CCNP Service Provider
• Cisco Certified DevNet Professional Passing any one of these exams will earn you the Cisco Certified Specialist title in that concentration. Passing the second exam will earn you the CCNP in that focus area.
