Alternative Course Title: Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) v3.0

As Enterprises migrate toward controller based architectures, the role and skills required of a core Network Engineer are evolving and more vital than ever. To prepare for this network transition, the CCNA Routing and Switching certification will not only prepare you with the knowledge of foundational technologies, but ensure you stay relevant with skill sets needed for the adoption of next generation technologies.

In this course, you will learn how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, managing network devices, and identifying basic security threats. The goal of the course is to provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to install, configure, and operate a small- to medium-sized network.

Now at version 3.0, Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) v3.0 provides the foundational understanding of network Layers 1 through 3 that are applicable to core routing and switching plus other advanced technologies. Several topics have been added including; understanding the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points, along with additional focus on IPv6 and basic network security.

This course can be followed by NICF – Cisco CCNA Routing & Switching Part 2 (ICND2), which covers topics in more depth and teaches you how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks, preparing learners for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification.

This course will enable participants to:

  • Prepare for the entry-level CCENT certification, which is the foundation for Cisco associate-level certifications and beyond
  • Obtain the foundational understanding of network layers 1-3 that are applicable to core routing and switching plus other advanced technologies
  • Develop basic routing and switching networking skills to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot Cisco networks for increased effectiveness and optimal performance within SMB settings
  • Understand the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points
  • Support Cisco network deployments and maintain these services in an on-going operational network
