Course Overview

The ICND1: Cisco CCENT R&S course is the first step into Cisco networking. The goal of this online training course is to provide students with the fundamental skills needed to successfully install, operate, configure, and maintain Cisco routers and switches. Students who have attended the ICND1 online training course will gain competency with Cisco IOS-based devices and ISR-capable routers. Crucial elements of this course include the coverage of IPv4 subnetting, ACLs, VLANs, as well as Static and Dynamic Routing which are all needed for success at all levels of Cisco certification.

IPv6 is also introduced with a focus on static routing and OSPFv3. This online training course is preparation for the Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) exam. Students pursuing their CCNA Routing and Switching certification should attend both ICND1 and ICND2 online training courses.

Exam Number: 100-101 ICND1 (Last day to test: August 20th, 2016)
