CCNAX v3.0 - CCNA Routing and Switching Boot Camp

5 days
Please contact FMC to schedule.

Course Description

In this course, you will learn how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network. You will focus on configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, identifying basic security threats, understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common network issues, connecting to a wide-area network (WAN), configuring EIGRP and OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding WAN technologies, and getting familiar with device management and Cisco licensing.

This is an intensive, extended-hours Boot Camp. Expect to be in class for 12 hours on each of the five days.

Built for Your Success
It is imperative that you come to class with an established base of foundational networking knowledge to build upon during the five-day Classroom Instruction.

Global Knowledge has created a three step, blended learning approach for the CCNA Boot Camp to ensure we provide comprehensive coverage of the materials and maximize the classroom experience:

  • Pre-class activity
  • Classroom instruction
  • Post-class lab practice

The pre-class activity provides a subset of CCNA content designed to give you a firm foundation on which to build your classroom training. We have identified approximately 10 hours of materials and exercises to review prior to class. The pre-class activity is mandatory prior to starting this course. Without the knowledge gained in these activities you will be behind in class.

Our industry-leading CCNA Boot Camp includes over $1,000 in extras at no additional cost:

  • 10 hours of pre-class activity
  • Free 200-120 CCNA exam voucher
  • 20 extra lab credits, good for 30 days after training, to practice and refine your skills
  • Enhanced content that exceeds standard authorized Cisco content taught by world-class certified Cisco Systems instructors
  • CCNA lab guide and workbook, including exclusive additional labs and study aids
  • Access to Boson's practice exams
  • An enhanced lab topology that represents a real-world network, including two routers and one switch
  • Unrivaled guarantee
