    CCNA more??


      Good morning colleagues  I need your advice. I would like to learn CCNA security and also CCNP routing and switching after i finished CCNA RS.. Because i want to make DevOPS career in future. But:

      1. there will be no course CCNA Security In February . It will be only one CCNA

      2. its unreall to prepare for 6 months for 3 exams for CCNP

      3. what will happen if I pass the first exam and do not have time to pass the other two on CCNP?

      4. Or may be better to learn Linux+ and wait for february?

          It depends of your situation. The time for study CCNP is not short and if you work, it could be so difficult for the hours of study and practice.

          Now, if you want to take CCNP exams, the plan could be take the ROUTE and SWITCH exam, because it has a equivalent according to CCNP R&S tool:


          From February 24, 2020, you will get:


          About Security, it is a good track, but it will depends if you want to work in a company and participate in projects, for example, a Security implementation in a bank. Working in this specific track is better to growth, not only study the topics of an exam. Now you can learn about Cisco Security searching the Internet and check blogs and videos.


          It is my humble opinion. If you apply Linux in your work, study and go ahead!

            Thanks) So you say if i ll pass 1 exam i ll get

            Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core

            And whats will be if i  ll pass two?

            Because its very interesting

            now if you want to get the CCNP you need


            300-101 ROUTE Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE)

            300-115 SWITCH Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH)

            300-135 TSHOOT Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks (TSHOOT)


            and after 2020 you need only one exam Core exam  (Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core)

            and one exam for your specialization

              You must pass ROUTE and SWITCH to get: Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core

              In other words, two exams
