Cisco CCNA

Course objective

Validate your networking capabilities and understand networking fundamentals such as installing, configuring, and operating a small to medium-sized network. We’ll go over topics such as Ethernet LANs, command-line interface, LAN switching, networking protocols, subnets, and many more all within real life scenarios. Cisco is a multinational technology conglomerate that specialises in networking hardware and its certification holders are recognised worldwide. This course will cover everything you need to know to sit the Cisco CCNA course with confidence. This CCNA is suitable for self-motivated learners who would like to gain the flexibility of self-paced study.

What is included

  • Pre and post assessment
  • Flashcards and quizzes
  • Virtual labs
