CCNA

First Step Towards a Networking Career

Begin preparing for a networking career with this introduction to how networks operate. This first course in the 3-course CCNA series introduces architectures, models, protocols, and networking elements – functions needed to support the operations and priorities of Fortune 500 companies to small innovative retailers. You’ll even get the chance to build simple local area networks (LANs). Developing a working knowledge of IP addressing schemes, foundational network security, you’ll be able to perform basic configurations for routers and switches. No prerequisites required. After completing all three CCNA courses, you are ready to take the CCNA Certification.

You’ll Learn These Core Skills:

  • Build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes.
  • Configure routers, switches, and end devices to provide access to local and remote network resources and to enable end-to-end connectivity between remote devices.
  • Develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills using real equipment and Cisco Packet Tracer.
  • Configure and troubleshoot connectivity a small network using security best practices.

Duration: 4 Months (January 22 – April 22)

Level: Intermediate

Learning Type: Instructor-Led

Exam: Internal Exam

Delve Further Into the World of Networking

This course focuses on switching technologies and router operations that support small-to-medium business networks, including wireless local area networks (WLAN) and security concepts. In this second course in a 3-course CCNA series you’ll perform basic network configuration and troubleshooting, identify and mitigate LAN security threats, and configure and secure a basic WLAN. Recommended preparation: CCNA: Introduction to Networks or having equivalent knowledge. After completing all three CCNA courses, you are ready to take the CCNA Certification.

You’ll Learn These Core Skills:

  • Work with routers, switches and wireless devices to configure and troubleshoot VLANs, Wireless LANs and Inter-VLAN routing.
  • Configure and troubleshoot redundancy on a switched network using STP and Ether Channel.
  • Develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills using real equipment and Cisco Packet Tracer.
  • Explain how to support available and reliable networks using dynamic addressing and first-hop redundancy protocols.

Set Your Sights on a Networking Career

Large enterprises depend heavily on the smooth operation of their network infrastructures. This final course in the CCNA series describes the architectures and considerations related to designing, securing, operating, and troubleshooting enterprise networks. It covers wide area network (WAN) technologies and quality of service (QoS) mechanisms used for secure remote access along with the introduction of software-defined networking, virtualization, and automation concepts that support the digitalization of networks. Recommended preparation: CCNA: Switching, Routing, and Wireless Essentials or possessing equivalent knowledge.

You’ll Learn These Core Skills:

  • Work with routers and switches using OSPF in point-to-point and multiaccess networks.
  • Mitigate threats and enhance network security using access control lists and security best practices.
  • Develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills using real equipment and Cisco Packet Tracer.
  • Understand virtualization, SDN, and how APIs and configuration management tools enable network automation.
