Description

Based on the Official Cisco five day 'Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions (CCNA)' course, this eight day event brings all the self study learning required for the CCNA exam into the classroom. Going beyond the official five day classroom syllabus of the standard course, this eight day event includes an additional three days of instruction and hands-on labs to ensure that delegates are fully prepared for the 200-301 Cisco® Certified Network Associate (CCNA®) exam. You will learn how to install, operate, configure, and verify basic IPv4 and IPv6 networks. The course covers configuring network components such as switches, routers, and wireless LAN controllers; managing network devices; and identifying basic security threats. The course also gives you a foundation in network programmability, automation and software-defined networking.

If you are new to the core Cisco networking technologies and your ambition is to achieve the CCNA accreditation we highly recommend this course as the best option available to prepare you for the exam. The course brings examinable topics into the classroom (which are usually addressed via self study in the five day variant of the course) to ensure that the learner enjoys the opportunity to address these subjects and topics and undertake practical hands-on labs to reinforce the theory in the presence of Cisco Subject matter experts.

Note: Delegates with significant existing Cisco Networking experience may consider attending the standard five day Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions (CCNA) CCNA course instead. This course is designed for anyone seeking CCNA certification. The course also provides foundational knowledge for all support technicians involved in the basic installation, operation, and verification of Cisco networks. The job roles best suited to the material in this course are:

  • Entry-level network engineer
  • Network administrator
  • Network support technician
  • Help desk technician
