Cisco Training and Certification

Cisco Systems offers some of the most advanced technologies in the areas of routing, switching, network security and voice applications that require the expertise of trained professionals Cisco certifications are required for nearly all Cisco IT professionals. Whether you are new to Cisco technology or looking for an advanced training to prepare you for Cisco certifications such as CCNA, CCNP, CCSP, CCDP, CCIP or CCVP.

CCNA

Course Description: Cisco Certified Network Associate Course includes the following:  WAN technologies, implementing network security, types of networks and network media, routing and switching fundamentals, the TCP/IP and OSI models, IP addressing, operating and configuring IOS devices, extending switched networks with VLANs, determining IP routes, managing IP traffic with access lists, establishing point-to-point connections, and establishing Frame Relay connections.

Course Objectives: Providing the skills and knowledge necessary to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium branch office Enterprise Network.  Switch and router configuration, connecting to a WAN and implementing network security will be covered.  Students should be able to complete configuration and implementation of a small branch office network under supervision.  Students will also learn to configure, verify, and troubleshoot OSPF and EIGRP.  The ability to apply ACLs based on network requirements, as well as configure, verify, and troubleshoot ACLs on a medium-sized network are key to this course.  The ability to configure and judge between NAT and PAT for a medium-sized network will also be covered.
