||Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Version 7.0|
|Course Duration||18 Days in total
CCNA 1: Introduction to Networks (ITN): 6 Days.
||The CCNA Version 7.0 curriculum consists of three courses that make up the recommended learning path. The courses in the CCNA Version 7.0 curriculum help students develop a comprehensive foundation for designing, securing, operating, and troubleshooting modern computer networks, on the scale from small business networks to enterprise networks, with an emphasis on hands-on learning and essential career skills like problem solving and collaboration. The curriculum offers the following features and benefits:
1. Students learn the basics of routing, switching, and advanced technologies to prepare for the CCNA certification exams, networking related degree programs, and entry-level careers.
2. The language used to describe networking concepts is designed to be easily understood by learners at all levels and embedded interactive activities help reinforce comprehension.
3. Courses emphasize critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and the practical application of skills.
4. Multimedia learning tools, including videos, games, and quizzes, address a variety of learning styles and promote increased knowledge retention.
5. Hands-on labs and Cisco® Packet Tracer simulation-based learning activities help students develop critical thinking and complex problem solving skills.
6. Embedded assessments provide immediate feedback to support the evaluation of knowledge and acquired skills.
||The Cisco Networking Academy® CCNA curriculum is designed for students who seek entry-level ICT jobs or plan to pursue more specialized ICT skills.
CCNA provides comprehensive coverage of networking topics, from fundamentals to advanced applications and services, with opportunities for hands-on practical experience and career skills development.
Students will obtain a Certificate after successful completion of each level of CCNA so at the end of the course students will receive three certificates representing the three CCNA levels.
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.
|Course Learning Outcome||1. CCNA 1 – Introduction to Networks (ITN):
The first course in the CCNA curriculum introduces the architectures, models, protocols, and networking elements that connect users, devices, applications and data through the Internet and across modern computer networks – including IP addressing and Ethernet fundamentals. By the end of the course, students can build simple local area networks (LAN) that integrate IP addressing schemes, foundational network security, and perform basic configurations for routers and switches.2. CCNA 2 – Switching, Routing, and Wireless Essentials (SRWE):
The second course in the CCNA curriculum focuses on switching technologies and router operations that support small-to-medium business networks and includes wireless local area networks (WLAN) and security concepts. Students learn key switching and routing concepts. They can perform basic network configuration and troubleshooting, identify and mitigate LAN security threats, and configure and secure a basic WLAN.3. CCNA 3 – Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation:
The third CCNA course describes the architectures and considerations related to designing, securing, operating, and troubleshooting enterprise networks – including wide area network (WAN) technologies & quality of service (QoS) mechanisms for secure remote access, along with software-defined networking, virtualization, & automation concepts supporting network digitization. Students gain skills to configure and troubleshoot enterprise networks, and learn to identify and protect against cybersecurity threats. They are introduced to network management tools and learn key concepts of software-defined networking, including controller-based architectures and how application programming interfaces (APIs) enable network automation.
