I hope you are fine.
I have a question about new CCNP Service Provider (300-501 SPCOR) Prerequisites, i can see that there are no any restrictions in order to take an exam:
There are no formal prerequisites for CCNP Service Provider, but you should have a good understanding of the exam topics before taking the exam.
CCNP candidates often also have three to five years of experience implementing service provider solutions.
Can you please confirm the above Cisco announcement?
Yes, that's correct! Starting Feb 24, 2020, the pre-requisite requirement will be removed. So you can jump directly to any Professional level certification, such as CCNP Service Provider, without the need of having the CCNA certification.
To become certified in CCNP Service Provider on and after Feb 24, you would only need to pass the 300-501 SPCOR exam and any one concentration exam of your choice within the track.
