Individuals seeking the Cisco CCNA® Routing and Switching certification. The course is also appropriate for pre-sales and post-sales network engineers involved in the installation and support of enterprise branch office networks.
Our accelerated CCNA Boot Camp is an intensive program, designed to help you achieve your CCNA certification in a reduced period of time. To maximize your classroom experience and ensure that you get a comprehensive coverage of the CCNA materials, our three-step, blended learning approach to the CCNA Boot Camp consists of: Pre-Class Activity, Classroom Instruction and Post-Class Lab Practice. The Pre-Class Activity provides you with approximately ten hours of review materials and exercises, including a a pre-test assessment, all of which is designed to give you a firm foundation and get you focused before you enter the classroom. Classroom Instruction includes intensive instructor-led training and hands-on labs, students will learn how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, identifying basic security threats, understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common network issues, connecting to a WAN,configuring EIGRP and OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding wide-area network technologies, and getting familiar with device management and Cisco licensing. You will have 24-hour lab access during the course. Following the course you will be provided with ten e-Lab credits, which can be used for additional Lab Practice allowing you to hone your skills using the same hands-on lab equipment you used in the classroom.
