The CCNA-Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions v1.0 course is a 5-day course that is designed to teach students how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network. Students will learn how to configure network components, such as a switch, router, and Wireless LAN Controller. Students will also gain skills needed to manage network devices, and identify basic security threats.
Who should take this course?
This class is recommended for those pursuing their Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification, which is the starting point for all Cisco network infrastructure certifications. It is ideal for entry-level networking engineers, administrators and technicians who support, operate and install Cisco networks.
The new CCNA course and certification now prepares associate-level IT professionals with skills in network security, automation and programmability. Students can build a foundation for a broad spectrum of IT careers with the new CCNA.
