CPT-100E: CISCO Networking Technology Certification
The Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is an entry-level networking certification that prepares you for networking roles in IT like network specialist, network administrator, and network engineer. This certification is issued by the networking hardware company, Cisco. The CCNA is designed to validate your knowledge on fundamental networking concepts often requested in networking roles in IT positions. To get the CCNA certification you’ll have to pass one exam, the 200-301 CCNA. The objective of this certification prep course is to help you prepare to take this exam. The exam is not included in the course tuition.
Who is this course for?
While there are no prerequisites to take the exam, training and some experience with computer networks are recommended. If you do not have any experience with IT support and do not have a good foundational knowledge of computer concepts, this prep course is not suitable for you. Instead, you should take our CMP-100E "Hybrid CompTIA A+ Certification Prep" course.
