Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA)

Overview

The widely respected Cisco Career Certifications bring valuable, measurable rewards to network professionals, their managers, and the organizations that employ them. Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is one of the most valued certifications in the IT industry. Anyone seeking to pursue or advance their career as a network technician, network administrator, or information security specialist will benefit from the range of theoretical and practical skills covered by the CCNA certification course of study.

This course is a boot camp-style course which prepares students to succeed when taking the CCNA Certification Exam.  CCNA validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks, including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN. CCNA also covers basic mitigation of security threats. CCNA certification is a prerequisite for Cisco's more advanced certifications such the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) certification.

Tuition for this course includes course materials, examination voucher and 1 year audit privilege (*restrictions may apply).

Certification

You can obtain your CCNA certification by taking one of two paths:
  • One test: You can just take test 200-125 CCNA Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated (CCNAX)v3.0 — a single test that covers all of the CCNA topics. This is a good option for more experienced students who are confident with the full range of CCNA topics.
  • Two tests: You can take (separately) 100-105 (ICND1)v3.0 and 200-105 (ICND2)v3.0. By passing test 100-101, you would earn the CCENT. Then by passing test 200-105, you would have both your CCENT and your CCNA certifications. CCENT is a stepping stone to the CCNA certification. It covers topics that you would expect an entry-level technician to know, including the OSI model, DNS basics, NAT, routing, and router configuration.

Prerequisites

CompTIA Network+ or equivalent experience is required.  Students should have at least one year of work experience with computers, TCP/IP networks, and configuring/troubleshooting operating systems at the command line.
