Advance Your IT Career with CCNA Training and Cisco Certification!

ICND2: Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2

The Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) v3.0, the course provides entry-level network administrators, network support, and help desk technicians with the knowledge to carry out the appropriate duties for any entry-level Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing & Switching jobs. Students will gain the skills needed to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot a small enterprise network while preparing for the CCNA exam. ICND2 v3.0 is augmented by a virtual classroom presentation, which has additional slides and interactions for instructor use. In addition to the classic hardware-based lab, Cisco will offer a new set of Cisco Learning Lab Classroom Labs.

ICND2 v3.0 focuses on understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common network issues, configuring EIGRP and multi-area OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding Wide Area Network technologies, and becoming familiar with device management and Cisco licensing. The learner will encounter more troubleshooting and more lab time than with the previous version of ICND. With all of the hands-on training, you should have no problem passing the CCNA test and earn your Cisco certification.
