CCNAv7: Introduction to Networks (ITN) covers the architecture, structure, functions and components of the Internet and other computer networks. Students achieve a basic understanding of how networks operate and how to build simple local area networks (LAN), perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement Internet Protocol (IP).
By the end of the course, students will be able to:
- Configure switches and end devices to provide access to local and remote network resources
- Explain how physical and data link layer protocols support the operation of Ethernet in a switched network
- Configure routers to enable end-to-end connectivity between remote devices
- Create IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes and verify network connectivity between devices
- Explain how the upper layers of the OSI model support network applications
- Configure a small network with security best practices
- Troubleshoot connectivity in a small network
The course contains these components:
- Networking Today
- Basic Switch and End Device Configuration
- Protocol Models
- Physical Layer
- Number Systems
- Data Link Layer
- Ethernet Switching
- Network Layer
- Address Resolution
- Basic Router Configuration
- IPv4 Addressing
- IPv6 Addressing
- Transport Layer
- Application Layer
- Network Security Fundamentals
- Build a Small Network
CCNA curriculum builds the skills you need to get hired and succeed in jobs related to networking computers, devices, and things. Whether you go for that first job or specialize with more study, CCNA is a great foundation. Potential career pathways include: network technician, support engineer, network administrator, network designer and network engineer.
By the end of the CCNA course series, students gain practical, hands-on experience preparing them for the CCNA certification exam and career-ready skills for associate-level roles in the Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) industry.
The 70-hour, instructor-led course is the 1st of 3 courses in the Cisco CCNAv7 curriculum. The course includes activities using Packet Tracer, hands-on lab work, and a wide array of assessment types and tools.
Classes are usually held two times a week on three-hour sessions or one times a week on six-hour sessions.
Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA)
CCNA is a certification program for entry-level network engineers that helps maximize your investment in foundational networking knowledge and increase the value of your employer’s network. CCNA is for Network Specialists, Network Administrators, and Network Support Engineers with 1-3 years of experience. The CCNA validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks.
