Cisco Networking Academy is pleased to announce general availability of the English versions of CCNP ROUTE: Implementing IP Routing and CCNP SWITCH: Implementing IP Switched Networks, the first two courses in the CCNP v6.0 curriculum. CCNP TSHOOT: Troubleshooting and Maintaining IP Networks was released on April 1, 2010. All course materials are available for immediate use on Academy Connection and instructors can now open and teach student classes.
The Networking Academy CCNP v6.0 curriculum consists of three new courses that align with the new Cisco certification exams:
Please note that two of the CCNP v5.0 courses, Implementing Secure Converged Wide Area Networks (ISCW) and Optimizing Converged Networks (OCN), do not have a direct replacement. The content of these courses has been either incorporated into the three new courses, or dropped from the CCNP curriculum.
The revised Cisco CCNP certification requires candidates to complete three 120-minute exams that validate the key competencies of network engineers: ROUTE 642-902, SWITCH 642-813, and TSHOOT 642-832. ROUTE and SWITCH replace the BSCI and BCMSN exams; however the TSHOOT exam covers new material on troubleshooting multisite enterprise networks.

EOL for CCNP v5.0
To facilitate a smooth transition, the CCNP 5.0 curriculum will be available for one year after the release of the new v6.0 courses. However, all academies are encouraged to migrate to CCNP 6.0 as soon as possible. The end of availability date for all CCNP v5.0 courses is June 30, 2011. For more information on the end-of-life milestones and dates for the CCNP v5.0 courses, please review the End-Of-Life Announcement for CCNP v5.0.
