Course Description | Outline | IT Certification Bootcamps


The widely respected Cisco Career Certifications bring valuable, measurable rewards to network professionals, their managers, and the organizations that employ them. Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA®) is one of the most valued certifications in the IT industry. Anyone seeking to pursue or advance their career as a network technician, network administrator, or information security specialist will benefit from the range of theoretical and practical skills covered by the CCNA certification course of study.

CCNA validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks, including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN. CCNA also covers basic mitigation of security threats and an introduction to wireless networking. CCNA certification is a prerequisite for Cisco's more advanced certifications such the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) certification.

You obtain your CCNA certification by passing test 640-802 — a single test that covers all of the CCNA topics. Students taking the exam at the end of class should be prepared to complete review assignments and practice exams assigned by the instructor.


CompTIA Network+ or equivalent experience is required. This is not a class for beginners; students should have at least one year of work experience with computers, TCP/IP networks, and configuring/troubleshooting operating systems at the command line.


8 days (with an optional 9th day for the certification exam)
