Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated v3.0 (CCNAX)

Michigan Technology Services offers many Cisco instructor-led courses. This CCNA training can take place at our location in Farmington Hills, 20 miles outside of Detroit, where you will sit in a room with one of our instructors, onsite at your office anywhere throughout the United States, or if you prefer, instructor led live online.

In the CCNAX class, instead of taking both the ICND1 and ICND2 classes and exams, learners have the option of taking one accelerated class and exam instead. The CCNA course covers all the material necessary to earn your CCNA certification, the prerequisite for many higher-level Cisco certifications. CCNA training teaches you the skills you need to install, configure, and troubleshoot Cisco routing and switching products, as well as introductory security and wireless technologies used by small and medium sized businesses.

This course prepares for CCNA Routing and Switching ICND v3 Exam (200-125 CCNA)

Who Should Attend

  • Network Administrators
  • Network Engineers
  • Network Managers
  • Systems Engineers
  • Network Designers
  • Project Managers

Prerequisites

This class is based on the traditional ICND1 and ICND2 classes and has been redeveloped to focus on achieving your CCNA efficiently with the view to fully prepare you for the exam whilst minimizing your time out of the office. All students should have a good understanding of the basics of Routing and Switching technologies - they should be familiar with a PC, understand how to change an IP address on a PC, use the ipconfig command and understand the different types of Ethernet cable. Candidates should ideally have 6 months – 1 year practical experience in a networking environment and have successfully completed our Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part1 v3 class or have equivalent work experience.

Course Objectives
