The Professional level in the Cisco Certification program recognizes a more advanced networking knowledge base and skills set. Each certification verifies a set of different technology skills to meet the needs of varying job roles.
In the new CCNP program, each CCNP certification requires only two exams: one core exam and one concentration exam of your choice, so you can focus on your interests and needs. And core exams in each technology track also serve as qualifying exams for CCIE lab exams.
If you have started working toward any current CCNP certification, keep going. In the new program, you'll receive credit for work you've already completed in the current program.
