HP Networking offers trainings, typically delivered in HP Authorized Trainings Centers (ATCs)[1] by HP Certified Instructors (HPCI).

HP Networking training is an evolution of what HP ProCurve offered as training.

The titles are oriented at the HP Certified Professional Program (HPCP).[2] Candidates can take most of the technical certification tests at Prometric [3] Testcenters. Sales certification tests can be taken online in the Internet.[4] Attending a course is currently not a prerequisite for achieving the titles. Annual based recertification can be achieved via Continuous Learning Program of HPCP.[5]
