Cisco Certified Network Associate CCNA Preparation Course

Course Overview

CCNA v3 certification training includes both Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) and Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) courses merged into one. Participants will learn to install, configure, operate, and manage basic IPv4 / IPv6 networks. This CCNA Routing & Switching course also imparts skills to configure a LAN switch and IP router, connect to WAN, and find security threats. This CCNA v3 training will cover detailed and in-depth topics related to troubleshooting in enterprise networks and prepare candidates for the real world once they complete their CCNA certification.

After this CCNA course completion, participants will acquire key skills and knowledge to configure, operate, manage and troubleshoot a medium-sized enterprise network, including the ability to ensure security of the network.
