This training consists of ICND1 and ICND2 content completely, but merged into a single program.
CCNA Composite Exam: The 200-125 CCNAX is the composite exam associated with the Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification. Candidates can prepare for this exam by taking the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated (CCNAX) program. This exam tests a candidate's knowledge and skills required to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium size enterprise branch network. The topics include all the areas covered under ICND 1 and ICND2 Exams.
Before attending this program, students must have:
- Basic computer literacy Basic PC operating system navigation skills Basic Internet usage skills Basic IP address knowledge.
At Program Completion
After completing this program, students will be able to:
