CISCO CCNA

Training & Certification Program
Cisco certification ensures high standards of technical expertise. You will develop a complete understanding of Wide Area Networking and how different network topologies work together to form a network. CCNA professionals can install, configure & operate LAN, WAN and Dial Access services for small networks including these protocols : IP, IGRP, EIGRP, Serial, Frame Relay, VLAN, RIP, Ethernet & Access List. This is beneficial to every networking job and is the reason Cisco certification is in such high demand, even at companies with few Cisco devices. Achieving Cisco certification at any level means joining the ranks of skilled network professionals who have earned recognition and respect in the industry. The CCNA certification is the first in the new line of Cisco certifications and is a prerequiste to all current Cisco certifications.
