The new CCNP Collaboration certification program prepares you for today’s professional-level job roles in collaboration technologies. CCNP Collaboration now includes automation and programmability to help you scale your collaboration infrastructure.
One of the industry’s most respected certifications, CCNP validates the core knowledge you need while giving you the flexibility to choose a focus area.
And now every exam in the CCNP Collaboration program earns an individual Specialist certification, so you get recognized for your accomplishments along the way.
To earn CCNP Collaboration, you pass two exams: a core exam and a collaboration concentration exam of your choice.
The core exam, Implementing and Operating Cisco Collaboration Core Technologies (CLCOR 350-801), focuses on your knowledge of collaboration infrastructure.
You can prepare for this exam by taking the training course, Implementing and Operating and Operating Cisco Collaboration Core Technologies (CLCOR).
The core exam is also the qualifying exam for CCIE Collaboration certification. Passing this exam helps toward earning both of these certifications.
Concentration exams focus on emerging and industry-specific topics. You can prepare for concentration exams by taking their corresponding Cisco training courses. Choose your CCNP Collaboration concentration exam from these options:
Implementing Cisco Collaboration Applications (CLICA 300-810)
Implementing Cisco Advanced Call Control and Mobility Services (CLACCM 300-815)
Implementing Cisco Collaboration Cloud and Edge Solutions (CLCEI 300-820)
Automating and Programming Cisco Collaboration Solutions (CLAUTO 300-835)
