The CCNA Routing and Switching Boot Camp is an accelerated course that merges content from ICND1 and ICND2. Learn how to install, operate, configure, and troubleshoot basic IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
This course includes Cisco Training Exclusives
EXCLUSIVE TO GLOBAL KNOWLEDGE - Accelerate your Cisco learning experience with complimentary access to Cisco's IT Skills Video On-Demand Library, Boson practice exams, Introduction to Cybersecurity digital learning course, course recordings, IT Resource Library, and digital courseware.
This course will enable you to:
- Prepare for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification.
- Operate a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree.
- Understand interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points.
- Develop core routing and switching networking skills to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot Cisco networks for increased effectiveness and optimal performance within SMB and Enterprise settings.
- Support Cisco network deployments and maintain these services in an on-going operational network.
What is CCNAX Boot Camp Training?
CCNAX is an intense and accelerated path to CCNA Routing and Switching certification for students with extensive network experience. The traditional path to CCNA Routing and Switching certification requires two courses (ICND1 and ICND2) and two exams. This boot camp fulfills the CCNA Routing and Switching requirement with a single exam.
In addition to learning about basic networks, you’ll learn to configure a LAN switch, configure an IP router, identify basic security threats, understand redundant topologies, troubleshoot common network issues, connect to a WAN, configure EIGRP and OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understand wide-area network technologies, and get familiar with device management and Cisco licensing.
The newest version of CCNAX include a focus on 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.
A full suite of labs included with this course 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.
- This is an intensive, extended-hours boot camp. Participants should expect to be in class for 12 hours on each of the five days.
- Lab time:
- 120 hours total over 180 days for CCNAX.
- Labs are one-to-one and on virtual machines.
- Be sure to log out of labs during class. Any remaining lab time can be used after class for additional practice and review.
