This three day course is aimed at delegates who have previously attended QA's Five day 'Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions' course and require further instructor lead preparation for the CCNA exam. This course, through a combination of lectures and labs exercises, addresses the CCNA exam syllabus topics that are not covered in the five day course.

Delegates who have attended the five day 'Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions' course will be aware that Cisco expect a further three days of self study to fully prepare the delegates for the CCNA exam. This three day course brings that self study into the classroom so that the learner can enjoy access to a Cisco subject matter expert and participate in practical labs in order to cover the additional topics required for the exam that are not covered in the five day course.
