CARY, N.C. - Global Knowledge, recently designated Top Quality Cisco Learning Partner in the Americas, today announced the availability of three updated courses to support the new Cisco Certified Network Associate Routing and Switching (CCNA Routing and Switching) certification recently announced by Cisco.
To reflect current job roles, CCNA certification has evolved from a foundation certification to a concentration certification and renamed CCNA Routing and Switching certification. The new routing and switching concentration certification validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot small, medium, and enterprise networks. It designates that a networking professional has the knowledge and skills to configure, manage, and troubleshoot LAN, WAN, and wireless connections.
"Refining the cornerstone CCNA certification to create CCNA Routing and Switching is the ideal response to help networking professionals gain the practical, job-specific skills and expertise required to implement and manage today's increasingly complex networks," said Eric Strause, Cisco worldwide product director at Global Knowledge.
Students may achieve CCNA Routing and Switching certification by passing both Exam 100-101 ICND1 and Exam 200-201 INCD2, or they may opt for the composite Exam 200-120 CCNA.
To help students prepare, Global Knowledge offers:
- ICND1 v2.0 - Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1
- ICND2 v2.0 - Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2
- CCNAX v2 - CCNA Routing and Switching Boot Camp
Strause added, "As Cisco continues to evolve its products to meet the demand for specialized skills, we are committed to bringing training on these new requirements to our customers quickly. With our proven ability to rapidly launch a worldwide schedule and prime our instructors, we are ready to deliver now."
Global Knowledge enhances its Cisco training courses with hands-on exercises and labs designed by professionals with real-world Cisco networking experience. Training courses for the new CCNA Routing and Switching certification are available in Global Knowledge classrooms worldwide or via private on-site delivery. ICND1 v2.0 and ICND2 v2.0 are also available live over the Internet in virtual classrooms.
