ENTFNDU - Cisco Enterprise Networking Foundations

Gain the foundational knowledge necessary to help support Cisco routers and prepares you for the CCNA-Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions v1.0 and CCT Routing & Switching certification.

CCNA-Foundations teaches professionals how to support a basic IPv4 and IPv6 Cisco network. You will learn the fundamentals of network components, such as a switches and routers. You will also gain skills with IPv4 subnetting; IPv6 addressing; Wide Area Networking concepts; and basics of managing and accessing Cisco routers and switches.

Who should take this course?
This course is recommended for those pursuing their Cisco Certified Technician (CCT) certification for Routing & Switching. This course is ideal for those wanting to prepare themselves for the new CCNA course and certification who may be newer to the industry.

The CCT certification is for the entry-level IT professionals, building skills required for onsite support and maintenance of Cisco routers, switches, and operating environments. You can build a foundation for a broad spectrum of IT careers with the CCT.
