This course is intended for pre-sales and post-sales network engineers involved in network design, planning and implementation. As well as individuals looking to attainthe Cisco Certified Design Associate CCDA certification orthe Cisco Certified Design Professional CCDP certification.
This is an instructor-led course designed to enable students to gather customer internet working requirements, identify solutions, and design the network infrastructure and elements to ensure the basic functionality of the proposed solutions. The purpose of this course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills to achieve associate level competency in network design. The DESGN course is the first course in a design curriculum that supports the design certification track. The course focuses on the technology and methods currently available.
