CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) 

Why Networks?

Do you want a bright career in computer field? Are you searching for a profession, which can lead you to 6-digit salary? If you want to live in high tech city or in any developed country then Networking is your destiny. Cisco, Juniper and Huawei are main manufacturers of routers and switches but cisco is well known and leader in networking products.

Why CCNA

Cisco has major share in networking market, more than 70% of equipment deployed in the world belongs to cisco. Therefore, if you want to start your career in computer networks than cisco certifications are your first step. You can also think of MCSE but keep in mind if you want networking field and especially core side of the networks rather than system side than you must go for CCNA. MCSE and Linux certification are for system administration. CCNA is first certification towards cisco highly and most valuable certification CCIE.

 CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) is a certification from Cisco. Cisco is a world leader in networking products manufacturing. Cisco certifications are well-known and highly reputed IT certifications all over the world. These certifications are divided into three different levels from beginner to expert level like Associate, Professional and Expert.

 

CCNA certification is a first-level or basic level Cisco Career certification. CCNA certification measures the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks, including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN.

To get CCNA certification, you must earn a passing score on Cisco exam #200-120 (which is new and revised version), or combined passing scores on both the ICND1 #100-101 and ICND2 #200-101 exams. The ICND1 grants you the Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) certification. Passing scores are set by using statistical analysis and are subject to change. At the completion of the exam, candidates receive a score report along with a score breakout by exam section and the passing score for the given exam. Cisco does not publish exam passing scores because exam questions and passing scores are subject to change without notice.

The new (200-120) CCNA is the composite exam associated with the Cisco Certified Network Associate certification. We have latest equipment which is recommended by cisco for this exam. We also use GNS and Cisco Packet Tracer to teach the topics but most of the practical are performed on real equipment. This exam is used to test a candidate's knowledge and skills required to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium size enterprise branch network.

Exam Description:

The 200-120 composite CCNA v2 exam is a 1-½ hour test with 50– 60 questions.The 200-120 CCNA exam is the composite exam associated with the CCNA Routing and Switching certification. Candidates can prepare for this exam by taking the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated (CCNAX) version 2.0 course. This exam tests a candidate's knowledge and skills required to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium-size enterprise branch network. The topics include all the areas covered under the 200-120 CCNA exam.

The following topics are general guidelines for the content likely to be included on the exam. However, other related topics may also appear on any specific delivery of the exam. In order to better reflect the contents of the exam and for clarity purposes, the guidelines below may change at any time without notice.
