Why study this course

The Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions (CCNA) v1.0 course gives you a broad 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.

This course covers configuring network components such as switches, routers, and wireless LAN controllers; managing network devices; and identifying basic security threats. The syllabus also gives you a foundation in network programmability, automation, and software-defined networking.

The course includes additional self-study material that can be done at your own pace after the instructor-led portion of the course.

This course helps you prepare for the 200-301 Cisco® Certified Network Associate (CCNA®) exam. You can now earn your CCNA certification by passing this single exam.

Please note: The exam is not included in the course fees.
