Cisco Certified Networking Associate: Routing and Switching (CCNA®)
Brief Description
The Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA): Routing and Switching short course incorporates both theoretical and practical aspects in preparation of the CCNA certification examination. The course provides you with the requisite skills and hands-on-experience needed to design, install, operate and maintain networks through a complete range of networking concepts and features. The course specifically prepares you on topics of: network security, types and media; routing and switching fundamentals; TCP/IP and OSI models; IP addressing, routes and traffic management; WAN technologies and connections; operating and configuring IOS devices; extending switched networks with VLANs; establishing point-to-point connections; and establishing Frame Relay connections.
Learning Outcomes
CCNA courses 1 to 4 of the academic programme form a basic foundation in networking. The first four courses are available at the secondary and post-secondary levels.
 
After successfully completing this course, you will be able to
  • build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes.
  • configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
  • configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, STP, and VTP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks
  • implement DHCP and DNS operations in a network
  • configure and troubleshoot network devices and resolve common issues with data link protocols, and
  • implement IPSec and virtual private network (VPN) operations in a complex network.AssessmentPractical and written exams.
