    @Shodown - You misunderstand me. I wasn't saying that you NEED to be doing NP level work to be getting an NP, but I do think it's important to have some sort of position in the networking field so you can at least get your hands on some of the technology, see how it behaves in the wild, and actually have some troubleshooting skills. There's a lot you learn in the material but even more that you really learn in the real world. We've seen a lot of kids come and go on these forums saying stuff like "I'm going to go from CCNA to CCIE within a year with 0 experience!" and maybe they do and maybe they don't, but keeping away skillfade is going to be a B. I'm pretty sure most CCNA or CCNP candidates with even a year of practical work experience can do laps around them in any technical interview.


    Yes I misunderstood you.

    I'm 21 now, so I'm hoping by 22 I'll have my NP, then start branching off into security and wireless since my environment DEMANDS it more and more (yum yum, so much funding being approved!)

    You people make me feel young again.. I was 18 when I passed ccnp route, and will perhaps obtain the entire thing before 20. But gearing towards my degree(s) now which I think is more important/beneficial for the time being.

    I'll be 36 in june, and will hopefully have the route exam completed by then, im in revision mode at the moment. Probably be 37 or 38 by the time I complete the NP. I don't have as much time to allocate as I would like.

    I earned my CCNA at 26.
    Second CCNA (after 1st CCNA expired) was earned at 30.
    By the time I earn CCNP (ROUTE already passed) I will be 30.
    Best, sacredboy!

    CCSP® & CCNP® both earned @29! The security one took me 2 years of preparation and passing the various needed exams whereas the routing&switching cert I managed to build upon acquired knowledge/confidence and get it finished in a 6month period (not counting the CCNA® exam requirement just the 3 Pro level exams).
    Now (@31) it's time for the CCDP®...

    Wow! I am very impressed to see some people getting their NPs in their very early 20s. I wish I had my head focused on what I wanted to do with life at that time

    Good for yall!

    Looks like the average age is in the early twenties. I'm working on my NP, been busy with school and I've just received my Masters degree which doesn't have an expiration date. Now I'm going full throttle on certs that are relevant to my career.

    I think I was 38 when I got the CCNA and 40 when I got the CCNP. You people make me feel old.

    Thinking about getting my NP at 35 or 36. Time will tell

    I'm 19 and I'm going to give myself the CCNP as a present for my twentieth birthday(or a little while after that, depends on how much time I have) And a hundred billion percent - CCNP Security before 21. If I wasn't dealing with so much programming, I probably could have done it faster since I love networking so much.
