Course Description

Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) v2.0 is a five-day, instructor-led training course that teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and verify  basic IPv4 and IPv6 networks, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring a router, connecting to a WAN, and identifying basic security threats.

This course can be followed by the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) v2.0 course, which covers topics in more depth and teaches learners how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks.  

ICND1 v2.0 includes major updates to previous versions of this class and aligns to an updated blueprint provided by Cisco. Several topics have been moved from ICND2 into ICND1, while some topics, such as RIP routing and wireless networking, have been removed from this course. Configuration commands are introduced through examples and supported with lab exercises.

If you attend in Phoenix, you will be using real gear during lab time.  Each in-class student uses 2 Cisco Catalyst 2950 Switches and a Cisco 2621 XM Router which is theirs for the week.  When we say “hands-on”, we mean it.  It’s much more than just typing words into a console.  You’ll be able to cable up your own gear and see how the actual equipment responds to your commands.  

Remote students will be using the online lab environment.  


This course is for individuals who are currently or desire to become a Cisco Network Administrator.

For those desiring certification, the course maps to the Cisco CCENT certification or Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification.
