The new CCNP Collaboration certification replaces the current CCNP Collaboration.

If you have started working toward the current CCNP Collaboration certification, keep going. In the new program, you’ll receive credit for work you’ve completed in the current certification.

  • If you pass any exams in the current certification before February 24, you’ll receive badging for corresponding new exams and credit toward the new CCNP Collaboration certification.
  • If you complete the current certification before February 24, you’ll receive the new CCNP Collaboration certification and badging for corresponding technologies— collaboration core technologies, applications, call control and mobility services, and cloud and edge solutions.

To earn CCNP Collaboration, you pass two exams: a core exam and a collaboration concentration exam of your choice.

  • The core exam focuses on your knowledge of collaboration infrastructure. 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.
