The CCNA Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions certification is one of the most popular certifications in the networking industry. The CCNA exam certifies your knowledge and skills related to network fundamentals, network access, IP connectivity, IP services, security fundamentals, and automation and programmability.
The Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions (CCNA) course gives you a wide range of fundamental knowledge for all IT careers. Through a combination of lecture, hands-on labs, and self-study, you will learn how to install, operate, configure, and verify basic IPv4 and IPv6 networks. The course covers configuring network components such as switches, routers, and wireless LAN controllers; managing network devices; and identifying basic security threats. The course also gives you a foundation in network programmability, automation, and software-defined networking.
This course helps you prepare to take the 200-301 Cisco® Certified Network Associate (CCNA®) exam. By passing this one exam, you will earn your CCNA certification.
This course is not a beginner level networking class. Students should have a basic background in networking which can include work experience or other certifications such as CompTIA Network+. If you are new to the world of networking, we recommend starting with our CompTIA A+ and Network+ courses.
Our course is a live in-person classroom course or a live online class, your choice, and all classes are live instructor-led classes. All classes are held in one of our comfortable classroom locations either in New York City, Washington DC, or live online.
