Cisco Service Provider Network Core Technologies (SPCOR) Coming to!

| | |

Are you as excited as we are? The new CCNP Service Provider has been the most requested track (outside of Security of course) here at This is training that is very difficult to find, and if you can find it, often very difficult to watch (unfortunately). This course will be starting within a week.

Need more to get excited about – just check out the preliminary video list below. Like all on-demand video training here at, this course emphasizes hands-on. You will follow along step by step with your instructor as you use GNS3, or EVE-NG, or CML to lab the most sophisticated Service Provider-level technologies available.

  1. Hello,
    Looking forward to get that course.
    Is it available in a self-paced format ?
    Best Regards.

        1. Hi Joel! So thrilled you are excited for this upcoming course. The SPCOR videos will actually start to post TODAY for Expert-Level or Platinum members. I expect to have all the videos posted by 4/15/2021.

          Enjoy the training – I am sure you will!

          1. Hi Anthony, thanks for your reply. I can imagine the challenge it is mostly to prepare SDN part with NSO combined with SR-PCE stuff.
            Is your training covering exact same topics as actual SPCORE blueprint ? I was hesitating to buy a subscription now, because I’m unable to see any SPCORE content from your website in either Professional or Expert sections. Cheers. Joel

          2. Joel, the advertising that we/Anthony are doing is based on the fact that we are starting on the SPCOR video/training/lab program, to be finished by end of April. We just finished adding SD-WAN and ISE.

            Access to the Service Provider material, as we produce it, will be provided to current and future members

            Right now we have the CCNA, CCNP Enterprise, CCNP Security, CCNP Collaboration and now CCNP SPCOR, in the Cert track.
            There are 28 programs on now, for one low price

            Thank you,
