About this course

Course code CCNAB
Duration 8 Days

The CCNA R&S curriculum includes CCNA Bootcamp Version 3.0, which is a composite course derived from ICND1 and ICND2 content merged into a single course and delivered over 8 days. Overlapping content between ICND1 and ICND2 is eliminated and some content is rearranged for the purpose of the course flow. This course teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and troubleshoot basic IPv4 and IPv6 networks, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, identifying basic security threats, understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common network issues, connecting to a WAN, configuring EIGRP and OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding wide-area network technologies, and getting familiar with device management and Cisco licensing.

Key additions to this latest revision include an understanding of Quality of Service (QoS) elements and their applicability, how virtualized and cloud services will interact and impact enterprise networks, and an overview of network programmability with the related controller types and tools that are available to support software defined network architectures.

Also included is the understanding the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points, along with additional focus on IPv6 and basic network security.

A full suite of labs have been developed using the virtual IOS environment with flexible topologies that reinforce concepts with hands-on, guided discovery and challenge labs that align to each lesson module.

Who should attend

Individuals seeking the Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification. The course is also appropriate for pre-sales and post-sales network engineers involved in the installation and support of enterprise branch office networks.

Key Job Tasks:

Configure: Implement the identified solution by applying the planned implementation processes using Cisco IOS commands and applications in the correct order to the selected devices and portions of the network.

Verify: Use the appropriate show and debug commands and applications to ensure that the solution was correctly implemented and is performing as desired.

Troubleshoot: Use the appropriate show and debug commands and applications to identify the cause of basic level network issues and correctly implement a solution that ensures the network is performing as desired.

Job roles: Entry Level Network Engineer, Network Administrator, Network Support Technician or Help Desk Technician.
