CCNA

Overview:

CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) is an entry level certification for networking professionals. It is the first step to enter the higher level certifications, such as Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) and Cisco Certified Internet work Expert (CCIE) certifications. It will analyzes the Student’s ability to install, operate, configure and troubleshoot medium size routed and switched networks.

Training Objectives of CCNA:

The Main Objectives of the CCNA course curriculum includes basic mitigation of security threats and introduction to wireless networking concepts and terminology and performance based skills. Students will also learn about routed and switched LAN Emulation networks made up of Cisco equipment while you prepare for Cisco certification. The Complete program provides focused coverage of Cisco router and switch configuration procedures.

Target Students / Prerequisites:

It is recommended for the students have a basic understanding of computer hardware configurations and networking business drivers.
