HP ExpertONE Networking Training and Certification Frequently Asked Questions

What happens to my HP ProCurve networking certifications?

Your current HP ProCurve networking certifications are still valid for legacy ProCurve networking products and solutions. In the new HP ExpertONE programme, you’ll be able to use them as a springboard to greater cross-domain skills.

What’s special about an HP certification?

HP networking certifications are unique as they go beyond the narrow bounds of technology silos. The HP ExpertONE networking curriculum develops and assesses the skill sets necessary to design and implement cutting-edge networking solutions that also complement other parts of the Converged Infrastructure, from SMB to enterprise and from core to edge.

But I’m already Cisco-certified...

In the HP ExpertONE programme, HP embraces and enhances the skills you bring to the table, even if they come from other certification programmes. You can build on your existing knowledge and experience without having to start over.

How can I find out which Cisco certifications apply toward HP Networking certification?

The HP networking certification upgrade path brochure and the Upgrade Path Tool can help you determine exactly what training we recommend and what exams are required. Each of these resources can be found on the HP networking training website,, in the “search” box.

What do you mean, “I don’t have to start over” if I am already Cisco certified?

If you hold a current CCNP certification (issued in the last 3 years) in wireless or routing and switching, you can enter the HP ExpertONE programme at the ASE level without completing the ATP prerequisite. Similarly, if you hold a current CCIE certification in wireless or routing and switching, you can enter our programme at the Master ASE level without completing either ATP or ASE prerequisites.
