CCNA v2 Certification (200-120)

Course Duration : 2 Weeks (50 hours including practicals)


The CCNA (Cisco Certified Networking Associate) certification is the first in Cisco´s line of certifications that an aspiring networking professional must acquire in order to add value to his IT career. The CCNA certification validates a firm foundation of networking skills that include fundamentals like the OSI reference model, networking protocols, Layer 2 switching concepts and protocols, routing concepts and protocols, and wide-area networking (WAN) connectivity.. Thus a person aiming to qualify for the CCNA certification should be proficient in abilities to provide basic network installations and troubleshooting.

CCNA Training Details:

Skills and knowledge gained through training for the CCNA certification are immensely valuable in the networking field as the topics covered during the program provide the basis for all networking topologies and protocols.

Over the last many years Computermind has successfully trained several hundreds of networking professionals who have qualified in the CISCO CCNA certification exam.

The CCNA training covers all aspects of the 640-802 curriculum in detail. The course also provides practical hands-on training on Cisco Routers and Cisco Switches, as no WAN setup is complete without Leased line / Wireless / VSAT / DSL etc. Telecom devices like CSU/DSU, Telco MUX, are also covered in the Practical setup. The training for CCNA Certification is provided by Senior Network/WAN engineers who have several years of field experience.

Students preparing for the CCNA certification have a choice of writing the CCNA exam as a single paper or as two papers together. The details of paper codes and their descriptions are mentioned in the table below.
