Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Course
CCNA Training course prepares beginners to achieve associate level network certification offered by Cisco. It is basically the first step towards building foundation in networking arena.
CISCO is one of the leading company for designing, manufacturing and selling networking equipment. CISCO products are advanced and popular worldwide. The use of CISCO products is increasing day by day. Along with the use of CISCO products the courses developed by CISCO for network professionals are in high demand. Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNA) Routing and Switching is designed for Network Specialists, Network Administrators and Network Support Engineers. After the completion of CCNA Routing and Switching course your certification will demonstrate the capability to install, configure, operate and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched network.
Exam Description: The 200-120 composite CCNA v2 exam is a 1-½ hour test with 50–60 questions. 200-120 CCNA exam is the composite exam associated with the CCNA Routing and Switching certification.
The class will be taught by experts who use CISCO routers and switches in their day to day life. Most of them who teach CISCO are network professionals working in ISP or some corporate organizations where CISCO devices are in use.
The objective of Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) course is to provide good insights about CISCO router and switches and provide sufficient knowledge to use CISCO devices to install, configure and manage network within an organization.
