Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) program is an excellent entry point into the advancing world of Cisco. The CCNA® credential represents a foundational knowledge of networking and Cisco® technology. This program is ideal for individuals interested in starting or advancing their Information Technology career with skills in computer networks and organizational computer networking. In this program students will prepare for the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 CCENT/CCNA (ICND1), as well as Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 (ICND2) associated with the Cisco Certified Network Associate Certification.
Students will prepare for exam certification by completing learning experiences in lectures along with practical application. Students will review the hardware and application skills to prepare, install, and maintain a Cisco computer networking system by learning introductory Cisco concepts and concepts of connecting network devices.
This course will provide Cisco Routing and Switching Fundamentals in which students will learn to plan, configure, and operate simple WAN and switched LAN networks using Cisco products. At the end of this course students will have the skills to successfully install, operate, and troubleshoot a small branch office network utilizing Cisco Switches and Routers, with VLAN switching, and single area OSPE This course will prepare a candidate to sit for the Cisco Certification ICND1/CCENT; the first exam to Cisco’s certification path for Routing and Switching. The lecture series and practical application work will provide students with an opportunity to use live equipment, simulators and test real world scenarios and experience simulated test questions. The lecture series will cover in detail the specific areas of focus for knowledge transfer, practical application of theory.
This course will cover the topics of VLSM, IPv6, Single and Multi-area OSPF, EIGRP protocols and how to use access control lists (ACL’s) using NAT and DHCP. In addition, a student will learn to work with point-to-point connections and Frame Relay and how to configure and troubleshoot VLAN and interswitch communications.
This course will provide the knowledge of how to work with various routing methods and use trace methods to understand the various implementations available. Students will gain the understanding of security implementation options using ACL’s and NAT. The lecture series and practical application work will provide students with an opportunity to use simulators and test real world scenarios.
The lecture series and practical application work (lab) will provide students with the opportunity to use live equipment, simulators and test real world scenarios and experience simulated test questions. The lecture series will cover in detail the specific areas of focus for knowledge transfer and practical application of theory.
