CISCO Certified Network Associate (CCNA)

This four-course program prepares you for the CCENT 1 and CCENT 2 or CCNA Composite examinations. CCNA R&S is a recommended prerequisite for CISCO´s CCNP, CCDP, CCDA, and CCIE. Specifically for the CCENT and CCNA Routing and Switching certifications, Cisco has redesigned the training curriculum for the ICND1, ICND2 and CCNAX exams and has introduced new exams for ICND1, ICND2 and CCNA Composite. The updates include comprehensive troubleshooting, technologies such as IPv6, and updated software on Cisco routers and switches.

The sequence is based on Cisco’s certificate track and Cisco Academy’s online curriculum, hardware and educational materials for optimal compatibility with the certification exam. As a subset, the first two courses contain the necessary curriculum for the CompTIA Network + Certification. All instructors are certified CISCO Academy instructors. Each class is limited to 10 participants. Prerequisite: Proficiency in the use of software in a Windows-based environment and possess one year experience in computer applications.


Course 1: Introduction to Networks

This course is 1st in a 4 course track to CCNA R&S Certification. This course introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. The principles and structure of IP addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum. By the end of the course, students will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes. (4.0 CEUs)

Course 2: Routing and Switching Essentials

As the course title states, the focus of this course is on learning the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. In this course, you will learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this course, you will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks (4.0 CEUs)

Course 3: Scaling Networks

This course is 3rd in a 4 course track to CCNA R&S Certification. This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a larger and more complex network. Students learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, STP, and VTP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement DHCP and DNS operations in a network. (4.0 CEUs)
