About this course
The CISCO CERTIFIED NETWORK ASSOCIATE, Part 1 course helps you prepare for the Cisco CCNA® Routing and Switching and for associate-level routing and switching network engineering roles. This course teaches you how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, and gives you the knowledge you need to configure LAN switches and IP routers, as well as manage network devices and identify basic security threats. The course provides a foundational understanding of network Layers 1–3, which underlie core routing and switching plus other advanced technologies.
In this course, you’ll use a full suite of labs in the virtual Cisco IOS® Software environment with flexible topologies to help reinforce your knowledge with hands-on exercises that align to each lesson module. This course can help you prepare for the first half of the topics of the CCNA certification. It is also the first of two courses in a series that can help you prepare for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification. The second course covers the second half of the topics of the CCNA certification.
Anyone who is interested in networking.
