About this Course

The Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) v3.0 course provides you with the knowledge and skills that are needed to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, managing network devices, and identifying basic security threats. The course focuses on the functions of networking, knowledge of Cisco routers and switches, establishing internet connectivity, managing ACLs, configuring device security, implementing VLANs and trunks, configuring static routing and RIPv2, and becoming familiar with IPv6.

Additional topics include; understanding the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points, along with additional focus on IPv6 and basic network security.

This course is one of two recommended courses to prepare you for the Cisco CCNA certification.

New Exam: 100-105

Old exam (v2.0) EOL: 100-101 – Expires Aug 20,2016

**The CCNA Routing and Switching certification is valid for three years, at such time you will need to recertify. For detailed information, view the recertification policy for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification program.
