Course Overview:

TechNow’s Course ensures that you are ready to test for the CCNA Certification. This intensive ten-day program is a high end, hands-on, bootcamp using physical routers & switches in classroom.  Students will learn how to install, operate, configure, and verify basic IPv4 and IPv6 networks. The course covers configuring network components such as switches, routers, and wireless LAN controllers; managing network devices; and identifying basic security threats. The course also gives you a foundation in network programmability, automation, and software-defined networking. Additionally the course stress tests the students on exam practices that insure the student a successful outcome on the 200-301 CCNA exam.
