Course Description

Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Boot Camp (CCNAX) v2.0 is an instructor-led training course that teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, identifying basic security threats, understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common network issues, connecting to a WAN, configuring EIGRP and OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding wide-area network technologies, and getting familiar with device management and Cisco licensing. CCNAX v2.0 is augmented by a virtual classroom presentation, which has additional slides and interactions.

Labs are conducted on a new set of Cisco Learning Lab Classroom Labs that provide students individual access to their own exclusive pod of Cisco equipment. Lab pods can be accessed at any time and students receive 25 hours of lab time. Configurations can be saved and resumed at any time providing maximum flexibility.  Official Cisco course material will be provided to you in digital format.

In our CCNAX training course, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills you need to pass CCNA exam 200-120 (CCNAX) and obtain certification, demonstrating your knowledge of Cisco technologies and solutions.  You will also receive a voucher to pay for the exam.
