CISCO CCNA Certification Training Overview

Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA;) validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size route and switched networks, including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN. CCNA curriculum includes basic mitigation of security threats, introduction to wireless networking concepts and terminology, and performance-based skills. This new curriculum also includes (but is not limited to) the use of these protocols: IP, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Serial Line Interface Protocol Frame Relay, Routing Information Protocol Version 2 (RIPv2), VLANs, Ethernet, access control lists (ACLs).

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • describe how networks function, identifying major components
  • functions of network components, and the OSI reference model
  • describe issues related to increasing traffic on an Ethernet LAN
  • expand the switched network from a small LAN to a medium-size LAN
  • use multiple switches supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree
  • describe the reasons for extending the reach of a LAN and the methods that can be used
  • focus on RF wireless access
  • describe the reasons for connecting networks and connecting multiple IP subnets with routers
  • configure and verify a Cisco router for WAN connections with HDLC and PPP encapsulation
  • describe PAT static routing, and describe the components that make up a VPN solution
  • use the command-line interface to discover neighbors on the network
  • manage the router startup and configuration
  • describe routing concepts as they apply to a medium-size network
  • discuss dynamic routing with distance vector and link-state routing protocols, and configure RIP
  • configure, verify, and troubleshoot single-area OSPF
  • configure, verify, and troubleshoot EIGRP
  • determine how to apply ACLs based on network requirements
  • configure, verify, and troubleshoot ACLs
  • describe when to use NAT and PAT on a medium-size network
  • configure NAT and PAT, and explain IPv6 addressing and configuration on a Cisco router
  • configure, verify, and troubleshoot Frame Relay


Students should have a basic understanding of Windows, including how to use files and folders.
