Course Description

The Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions (CCNA) v2.0 training 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. The training covers configuring network components such as switches, routers, and wireless LAN controllers; managing network devices; and identifying basic security threats. The training also gives you a foundation in network programmability, automation, and software-defined networking.

This training helps you prepare to take the 200-301 Cisco® Certified Network Associate (CCNA®) exam. By passing this one exam, you earn CCNA certification. This training also earns you 30 Continuing Education (CE) credits towards recertification.
