Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA)
Get enrolled in the best certification course for CCNA at Nashik and get trained with domain experts.
The best training classes for CCNA in Nashik helps you to develop the most in-demand knowledge of network fundamentals, IP services and network security. It is the best course to start with if you are interested in networking; it clears all basics of the topic and trains you to jump to the next level.
What will you learn in the CCNA Course?
The course is carefully designed for holistic learning of students and is divided into seven further modules that are made by domain experts, in a way that it covers all the topics of CCNA.
The first module of network fundamentals starts with explaining the role and function of network components which is followed by describing characteristics of network topology architectures and comparing physical interface and cabling types. It consists of other sub-topics like identify interface and cable issues (collisions, errors, mismatch duplex, and speed), compare TCP to UDP, configure and verify IPv4 addressing and prefix, compare IPv6 address types, verify IP parameters for client OS (Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and describe switching concepts.
The second module talks about the network access and helps you to learn configuring and verifying VLANs (normal range) spanning multiple switches, interswitch connectivity, Layer 2 discovery protocols (Cisco discovery protocol & LLDP), (Layer2/3) Etherchannels (LACP). It also describes the need for basic operations of rapid PVSR+ spanning tree protocol and identifies basic operations. Other topics like compare Cisco wireless architecture and AP modes, Describe physical infrastructure connections of WLAN components (AP, WLC, access/trunk ports, and LAG and AP & WLC management access connections (Telnet, SSH, HTTP, HTTPS, console, and TACACS+/RADIUS), configure the components of a wireless LAN access for client connectivity using GUI only such as WLAN creation, security settings, QoS profiles, and advanced WLAN settings are also covered in the same module.
The module for IP connectivity begins with interpreting the components of routing tables and determining how a router makes a forwarding decision by default. The module ends with explaining configuration and verification of IPv4 & IPv6 static routing and single area OSPFv2 along with describing the purpose of the first hop redundancy protocol.
The next module for IP services starts with configuration and verification of inside source NAT using static & pools and NTP operating in a client & server mode. It further explains the role of DHCP and DNS within the network and the function of SNMP in network operations. It also describes the use of syslog features including facilities and levels, configuration and verification of DHCP client & relay and explains the forwarding per-hop behavior (PHB) for QoS such as classification, marking, queuing, congestion, policing and shaping. The module ends with configuring network devices for remote access using SSH and describing the capabilities & function of TFTP/FTP in the network.
This module for security fundamentals defines key security concepts (threats, vulnerabilities, exploits, and mitigation techniques) and security program elements (user awareness, training and physical access control). It describes security password policies elements, such as management, complexity, and password alternatives (multi factor authentication, certificates, and biometrics), remote access and site-to-site VPNs and wireless security protocols (WPA, WPA2, and WPA3). It also helps you to configure device access control using local passwords, layer 2 security features (DHCP snooping, dynamic ARP inspection, and port security) and WLAN using WPA2 PSK using GUI; ending with configuration & verification of access control lists.
The last module of automation and programmability explains how automation impacts network management and compares traditional networks with controller-based networking. It describes controller-based and software defined architectures (overlay, underlay, and fabrics) and compares traditional campus device management with Cisco DNA center enabled device management. It also describes characteristics of REST-based APIs(CRUD, HTTP verbs, and data encoding) and recognizes the capabilities of configuration management mechanism puppet, chef, and ansible, ending with interpreting JSON encoded data.
