Description

The CCNP Enterprise ( ENSLD) examination is designed to enhance and develop your knowledge of enterprise design including advanced addressing and routing solutions, advanced enterprise campus networks, WAN, security services, network services, and SDA. This certification will be a great addition to your career.

Target Audience

The course will bring the best out in those candidates who are working in below mentioned profiles:

  • Network design engineers
  • Network engineers
  • System administrators

Exam Overview

The total time allotted for CCNP Enterprise (300-420 ENSLD) examination is 90 minutes. The exam can contain various questions types that can be Multiple-Choice Single Answer, Multiple-Choice Multiple Answer & Drag and Drop Fill-in-the-Blank & Testlet. However, for passing scores, Cisco does not publish exam passing scores because exam questions and passing scores are subject to change without notice. The cost of the exam is $300 USD and the exam is valid for three years. Also, you can give this examination in English and Japanese
