Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) v3.0

What you’ll learn in this course

The Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) v3.0 course helps you prepare for the Cisco CCNA® Routing and Switching certification and for associate-level routing and switching network engineering roles. This course gives you the knowledge and skills you need to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot a small enterprise network. In addition this latest revision provides an understanding of Quality-of-Service (QoS) elements and their applicability and of how virtualized and cloud services will interact with and impact enterprise networks, along with an overview of network programmability and the related controller types and tools that are available to support Software-Defined Network (SDN) architectures.

In this course, you’ll use a full suite of labs in the virtual Cisco IOS® Software environment, with flexible topologies to help reinforce your knowledge and hands-on exercises that align to each lesson module.

This course is the second of two courses in a series that can help you prepare for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification. The first course in the series is Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1).

Course duration

  • Instructor-led training: 5 days with hands-on lab practice
  • Virtual instructor-led training: 5 days of web-based classes with hands-on lab practice
  • E-learning: Equivalent of 5 days of instruction with hands-on lab practice

How you’ll benefit

This course will help you:

  • Learn to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot a small enterprise network
  • Understand QoS elements and their applicability
  • Prepare to pass the 200-105 ICND2 exam, which completes the second half of the requirements for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification
  • Prepare to pass the combined 200-125 CCNA exam, which completes all the requirements for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification. To help you prepare fully for the 200-125 CCNA exam, we recommend that you take this course after you take the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) course.
