The Learning Path to Become an Expert

Starting with fundamental courses like TCP/IP, NAT or Routing protocol, students opens the door to the world of data networking. After passing the first exam, a set of courses introduce many protocols corresponding to the product characteristics in selected ZCNP programs. For example, for ZCNP Switch, students will learn about VLAN, Spanning Tree, Multicast, and 802.1P/Q…etc. The last part of the training course focuses on ZyXEL implementation and product knowledge. More ZyXEL specific configurations and troubleshooting skills will be introduced by 3000 level courses. After completing all 1000, 2000, and 3000 level courses and passing 1000, 2000, and 3000 level exams, the final exam is intended to be very challenging to make sure students have learned enough about the selected programs. The ZCNP Certificate with program title (e.g. ZCNP Security) will be awarded as a proof of expertise.
