What exams do I need to pass to obtain my CCNP Routing and Switching?

  • 300-101 ROUTE Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE)
  • 300-115 SWITCH Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH)
  • 300-135 TSHOOT Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks (TSHOOT)

What are the recertification requirements for CCNP Routing and Switching?

What training is available to help me prepare for the new exams?

  • The best way to train is with instructor-led training offered by Authorized Cisco Learning Partners.
  • Exam Recommended Training
  • ROUTE Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) 3.0
  • SWITCH Implementing Cisco Switched Networks (SWITCH) 3.0
  • TSHOOT Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks (TSHOOT) 3.0

Please tell me how many questions in the real SWITCH exam, and how much time to answer them?

  • There are 45 questions, including 3 lab-sims. You have 120 minutes to answer them but if your native language is not English, Cisco allows you a 30-minute exam time extension.

How much does the SWITCH 300-115 cost? And how many points I need to pass the exam?

  • This exam costs $300. You need at least 790/1000 points to pass this exam.

I passed the SWITCH exam, will I get a certificate for it?

  • No, Cisco does not ship SWITCH Exam certificate, it only ships you a certificate after completing the full CCNP track of 3 exams (ROUTE, SWITCH & TSHOOT).

Which sims will I see in the SWITCH exam?

  • The popular sims now are LACP with STP Sim, HSRP Sim, AAAdot1x Lab Sim and please notice that the IP addresses, switch names may be different (it is also true for Drag and Drop questions)

How many points will I get for one sim?

  • Maybe you will get about 80 to 100 points for each sim, just like the CCNA exam.

In the real exam, I clicked “Next” after choosing the answer, can I go back for reviewing?

  • No, you can’t go back so you can’t re-check your answers after clicking the “Next” button.

I understand I will get CCNP certificate after completing 3 exams ROUTE, SWITCH and TSHOOT but can I take them in any order I like?

  • Yes, you can take these 3 exams in any order you like but the most popular “roadmap” is ROUTE then SWITCH and TSHOOT.

Mr.Ammar Elkaderi

Senior Business Analyst

I was a system administrator and wanted to increase my knowledge and skill. Hence I signed up for Vinsys’ Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH) Training Program where they prepared me for the SWITCH exams. I was then able to get my certification easily.


Mr. Kiran Raghavan

Senior Business Analyst

I had just joined as a System Administrator and wanted to have a firm grip over the subject. Hence I decided of taking up the SWITCH Training Program Offered by Vinsys. After finishing the program I was able to give the Exam with confidence and was also able to crack it.


Ernest Williams


I heard about the training programs offered by Vinsys and heard many good reviews about them and decided to try them. I enrolled for their SWITCH Training Program .My experience turned out to quite well. I felt very comfortable and the topics were easy to learn. I am now able to perform my daily tasks efficiently.
