About This Course
The Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) course is designed for the entry-level professionals who want to take and pass their Cisco 100-105 ICND1 exam and obtain the certification in basic networking. The training equips you with skills in installing, operating, and troubleshooting a branch network for a small enterprise. The intention of the course is to ensure that you go through an intensive and in-depth process in preparing yourself to pass your certification test and, most importantly, to handle basic system networking tasks for your organization as well.
In this Cisco 100-105 course, you get to learn technical areas, such as QoS (Quality of Service), cloud services, virtualization, network programmability, and network layers 1-3 used in core switching and routing, among other technology areas. Other topics include understanding of interactions and networking functions of wireless controllers, firewalls, access points, IPv6, as well as basics of network security. At the end of each topic, you will be given graded tests and challenge labs to check your preparedness for your exam. For the purpose of practical labs, the students are required to make their own arrangements to obtain the labs that they will use for practice. Learning including practice gives you an experience that you would not have obtained from theory alone.
The training is delivered through a classroom set-up or through virtual classrooms. You can choose a delivery method that suits your schedule. The commands are availed by use of examples alongside supportive lab practice exercises. The labs developed with the virtual IOS technology consist of flexible topologies used to provide focus to the relevant networking concepts. The emphasis is on hands-on labs aligned to every one of the topics across the modules.
