Cisco : Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1


Velisa Africa is the official Global Knowledge partner in Sub-Saharan Africa. Course details : http://www.globalknowledge.ae/courses/cisco/routing_and_switching/icnd1.html

This course focuses on providing the skills and knowledge required 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. At the end of this course students should be able to complete the configuration, implementation and troubleshooting of a small branch network under supervision.

Students will have a total of 60 hours lab access to use over a period of 180 days this includes access during the actual class.

This course is intended for network engineers and administrators who will install, operate and troubleshoot a small branch office Enterprise network. This is an entry level course and is ideal for those individuals new to networking and looking to start their Cisco Career Certification accreditation.

Recommended preparation for exam(s):

  • 100-105 - ICND1 Introduction to Cisco Network Devices Part 1 OR
  • 200-125 - CCNA - This is a composite exam consisting of both ICND1 & ICND2

Note: Passing the ICND1 exam (100-105) results in the award of the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT) certification. Students taking the composite exam will only be awarded the CCNA Routing and Switching Certification , they will not be awarded the CCENT certification.

Follow on Courses

The following courses are recommended for further study:

  • ICND2 - Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2- Required to gain CCNA Routing and Switching Certification
  • IINS - Implementing Cisco Network Security- Required to gain CCNA Security Certification.
  • WIFUND - Implementing Cisco Wireless Network Fundamentals- Required to gain CCNA Wireless Certification.
