Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated Training
The Cisco CCNA® curriculum includes a third course, Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated (CCNAX), a derivative works course consisting of Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) and Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) content in its entirety, but with the content merged into a single course. Overlapping content between ICND1 and ICND2 is eliminated and content is rearranged for the purpose of the course flow. Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated (CCNAX), is an instructor-led training course that teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, connecting to a WAN, and identifying basic security threats. Also covers topics in more depth and teaches learners how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks, preparing learners for Cisco CCNA certification.
The ideal candidate would be someone who has worked in a data network environment (PC support/helpdesk or network operations/monitoring), and has had hands-on experience, though no formal training, with Cisco IOS devices. This boot camp will serve to review and expand on what the candidate already knows and add to it, the detailed configuration and implementation of Cisco IOS devices.
Prospective CCNAX v3.0 students should prepare themselves for course days consisting of at least 10 hours and as long as 12 hours. Homework will be assigned and reviewed daily.
Those new to networking and to Cisco IOS should consider taking the ICND1 and ICND2 classes instead of CCNAX v3.0.
What the Students Get:
- Cisco Authorized course content
- Authorized Cisco CCSI Instructor
- Exam Voucher for Exam
