Network Administrator

CCNA Training and CCNA Certification Course

Network Administrator

Our Network Administrator program consists of two Cisco training courses, ICND or Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices, I and II. This program is for students pursuing an IT career in network administration. These courses provide the skills and certifications necessary to secure entry-level CCNA jobs and pass the two parts of the Cisco Certified Network Associate Routing & Switching (CCNA) certification exam.

CCNA training classes teach fundamentals, competencies, qualifications that prepare students for CCNA networking certifications and the CCNA test. Students in these CCNA classes develop skills required to install, configure, run, verify and troubleshoot medium-sized networks. Students will also work on resolving network connectivity issues.

This Cisco CCNA training program is also a CCNA prep course for the official CCNA exam.
