Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is a professional qualification accredited by Cisco for network professionals. This course teaches you to network, operate and troubleshoot complex networks and systems.
The CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum provides you with an integrated and comprehensive coverage of networking topics, from the basics to advanced applications and services. It also gives you the opportunity for hands-on practical experience and soft-skills development.
You'll learn about networking based on technology and cover networking concepts using a top-down, theoretical and integrated approach. This will include network applications and the network protocols and services provided to those applications by the lower layers of the network.
You'll find CCNA Routing and Switching ideal if you have advanced problem solving and analytical skills. The curriculum is also a comprehensive and theoretical learning experience for analytical students, and uses language that aligns well with engineering concepts.
Interactive activities are embedded in the curriculum, along with detailed, theoretical content. You can make use of our advanced labs to develop your critical thinking and problem-solving skills through exploration and research.
