This 10 week 200 hundred hour training program is a certification program for entry-level network engineers looking to earn the Cisco CCENT and Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certifications. The program is comprised of two courses ICND1 and ICND2. ICND1 maps to the learning objectives for Cisco exam 100-101. ICND2 maps to the learning objectives for Cisco exam 200-101. Students who pass the Cisco 100-101 exam are awarded the CCENT certification. Students who pass both the Cisco 100-101 and the 200-101 exam are awarded the highly coveted Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification.
The (CIS 100-101) ICND1 course provides you with the knowledge you need to install, operate and troubleshoot a small enterprise branch network, including basic network security. Topics covered include: TCP/IP models and protocols; LANs and Ethernet; running Cisco IOS; VLANs and trunks; IP addressing and subnetting; packet delivery; static and dynamic routing; DHCP and NAT; network security; WANs, IPv6, and more.
The (CIS 200-101) ICND2 course teaches you the technology and theory for building and troubleshooting medium to large scale internetworks, including an in-depth study of VLANs as well as redundancy technologies such as HSRP, STP, and EtherChannel. Additional topics include: implementing scalable mid-sized networks; troubleshooting basic connectivity; implementing EIGRP solutions and OSPF-based scalable multiarea networks; understanding WAN technologies; managing network devices; and advanced troubleshooting.
After completing this course, students will gain the skills required for entry-level network support positions, the starting point for many successful careers in networking. CCENT Certification is the first step toward achieving Associate-level certifications including CCNA Routing and Switching, CCNA Voice, CCNA Security, CCNA Wireless, and CCNA SP Ops.
The technology community identifies the Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification as a perfect way to enhance Information Technology and Networking careers and assist those who intend to further their career by eventually obtaining their CCNP certification.
By the end of the program students will be fully prepared to sit for the following 2 exams listed below
- Cisco CCENT exam 100-101
- Cisco CCNA exam 200-101
