On this accelerated Cisco Certified DevNet Specialist – Core course, you’ll learn to design, develop and debug applications using Cisco APIs and platforms.

In just 4 days, you’ll gain the skills to manage and deploy applications with Cisco's infrastructure. You’ll also learn how to implement the continuous delivery of applications and services within your business, using Cisco platforms and devices.

You’ll get access to official courseware and learn from certified Cisco instructors. At the end of your course, you’ll sit the 350-901 DEVCOR exam and get DevNet Core Specialist certified.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Utilise RESTCONF to configure a network device
  • Describe the benefits of continuous testing and static code analysis in a CI pipeline
  • Describe how to host an application on a network device

The DevNet certifications are a first-of-its-kind. Software and networks are becoming more interconnected and Cisco’s DevNet certifications build skills across these emerging areas.

If you have 3-5 years of experience designing and implementing applications that are built on top of Cisco platforms, this course is ideal for you.

Once you have completed any of the DevNet Specialist certifications, you’ll be able to apply for the final stage of Cisco’s DevNet journey, the DevNet Professional certification.

"Good training experience in the Netherlands."

"It is a very hard training and I don''t think it''s suitable for complete beginners in networking. Our instructor was very competent and the location was excellent."
Christian Dietrich. (4/12/2017 (Monday) to 10/12/2017 (Sunday))

"It was a hard but good course - a lot of information and a good teacher. We did a lot of practical work and it was nice to see the output of all the theoretical knowledge out of the book. "
Anonymous (14/8/2017 (Monday) to 17/8/2017 (Thursday))

"Great course, very well given"
R.H.. (22/3/2021 (Monday) to 27/3/2021 (Saturday))

"Having very minimal knowledge with Cisco before starting, I now feel confident to take the exam and to get hands-on with Cisco kit. The method of teaching from slides, taking that information and then putting them into simpler, more relatable terms on the whiteboard was a great way to make it all understandable for a first-time user. The instructor did a great job."
