CCNAX - Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Accelerated v2.0 (CCNAX)

All SLI Scheduled Dates Are Guaranteed to Run!

Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated (CCNAX), is a course consisting of ICND1 and ICND2 content in its entirety, but with the content merged into a single course. Overlapping content between ICND1 and ICND2 is eliminated and content is rearranged for the purpose of the course flow. CCNAX prepares students for exam #200-120 CCNA in an accelerated format utilizing extended class hours.
This course teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, identifying basic security threats, understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common network issues, connecting to a WAN, configuring EIGRP and OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding wide-area network technologies, and getting familiar with device management and Cisco licensing. Learner will encounter more troubleshooting, and more lab time than with the previous version of CCNAX.
