Cisco Certified Network Associate(CCNA)



Benefits Prerequisites Exams Schedule,Register Course Outline
This training is offered in two different formats, instructor-led classroom or online training over the Internet. The is designed to prepare the applicants to identify, design and recommend the best Cisco solutions for small to medium-sized businesses. It provides the installation, configuration, and troubleshooting information that technical support people require to install and configure the Cisco products sold through two tier distribution. Lectures, labs and interactive cases are provided to increase your understanding of the products and to best position them to meet customers' requirements. CCNA curriculum includes basic mitigation of security threats, introduction to wireless networking concepts and terminology, and performance-based skills.

Why should you become a CCNA
As a networking professional, you will cultivate industry-supported skills and credentials that you will be able to transfer to future employment opportunities. With your CCNA certification, you will be able to demonstrate and promote the fact that you have the necessary skills to do your job effectively and you are certified by the leader in Network Technologies.

What are the Prerequisites & for CCNA  
Prior to CCNA course, the applicants have to know Networking Technologies and Computer Hardware (A+ Certification). Basic knowledge of networking and TCP/IP is required. An applicant without the above knowledge will find it very difficult to proceed.
CCNAŽ Exam Requirements, CCNAŽ Routing & Switching Certification :

To become Cisco Certified Network Associate, you are required to pass one exam (exam #200-125 CCNA). The exam duration is 90 minutes and there are 50 to 60 questions. This exam is developed with the input of professionals in the industry and reflects how Cisco products are used in organizations throughout the world. The exam is administered by Pearson Vue, an independent testing organization with locations worldwide. Computer Institute is an authorized testing center.
