The knowledge and skills you must have before attending this course are as follows:

This class is based on the traditional ICND1 and ICND2 classes and has been redeveloped to focus on achieving your CCNA efficiently with the view to fully prepare you for the exam whilst minimizing your time out of the office.
All students should have a good understanding of the basics of Routing and Switching technologies - they should be familiar with a PC, understand how to change an IP address on a PC, use the ipconfig command and understand the different types of Ethernet cable. Candidates should ideally have 6 months – 1 year practical experience in a networking environment.

In order to be prepared for this intense 5 day class, all students must complete the pre-class activity. Access to the preparation material will sent to you once you have booked your class.
