Overview

  • The Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) v3.0 course provides you with the knowledge and skills that are needed how 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. You will also learn how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks, preparing learners for Cisco CCNA certification.
  • Several topics have been added including; understanding the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points, along with additional focus on IPv6 and basic network security.
  • New Exam: 100-105
  • All configuration commands are introduced through examples and supported with lab exercises. A full suite of labs have been developed using the virtual IOS environment with flexible topologies that reinforce concepts with hands-on, guided discovery and challenge labs that align to each lesson module.
  • Who should attend
  • Target candidates: Individuals seeking the Cisco CCENT certification, or Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification. The course is also appropriate for support technicians involved in the basic installation, operation, and verification of LAN networks.
  • Key job tasks:
  • Configure: Implement the identified solution by applying the planned implementation processes using Cisco IOS commands and applications in the correct order to the selected devices and portions of the network.
  • Verify: Use the appropriate show commands and applications to ensure that the solution was correctly implemented and is performing as desired.
  • Job roles: Entry-level network engineer, network administrator, network support technician, and help desk technician
  • Certifications This course is part of the following Certifications:
  • Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT)
  • Cisco Certified Network Associate Routing and Switching (CCNA)

Recommended preparation for exam(s):

100-101 - ICND1 Introduction to Cisco Network Devices Part 1 OR

200-120 - CCNA - This is a composite exam consisting of both ICND1 & ICND2

Note: Passing the ICND1 exam (100-101) results in the award of the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT) certification. Students taking the composite exam will only be awarded the CCNA Routing and Switching Certification , they will not be awarded the CCENT certification.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
