CCNA (For networking and infrastructure)

Introduction:

Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions is a comprehensive entry-level Cisco course that is designed to wholly equip IT personnel and technology enthusiasts(specifically, those looking to start a career in IT) with knowledge and skills related to network fundamentals, network access, IP connectivity, IP services, security fundamentals, automation and programmability.

Targeted Groups:

  • Entry-level IT personnel
  • Network Engineer
  • Network Analyst
  • Network Support Engineer

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Explain the role and function of network components
  • Describe characteristics of network topology architectures
  • Configure and verify Interswitch connectivity
  • Configure and verify Layer 2 discovery protocols (Cisco Discovery Protocol and LLDP)
  • Interpret the components of the routing table
  • Configure and verify inside source NAT using static and pools
  • Define key security concepts (threats, vulnerabilities, exploits, and mitigation techniques)
  • Explain how automation impacts network management
