The best way to prepare for this certification is to take the Cisco-approved training:
The course provides the foundational knowledge of network layers 1-3 that are applicable to core routing and switching and introduces advanced technologies. Topics include the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points, along with additional focus on IPv6 and basic network security.
The course provides the knowledge and skills needed to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot a small enterprise network. Key topics include QoS elements, virtualized and cloud services, along with controller types and tools that are available to support software defined network architectures.
This is a composite course derived from ICND1 and ICND2 content merged into a single five day training course.
To earn this Cisco certification, you must pass the following exam(s):
This exam tests a candidate's knowledge and skills related to network fundamentals, LAN switching technologies, IPv4 and IPv6 routing technologies, WAN technologies, infrastructure services, infrastructure security, and infrastructure management.
This exam tests a candidate's knowledge and skills related to network fundamentals, LAN switching technologies, routing technologies, infrastructure services, and infrastructure maintenance.
This exam tests a candidate's knowledge and skills related to LAN switching technologies, IPv4 and IPv6 routing technologies, WAN technologies, infrastructure services, and infrastructure maintenance.
CCNA Routing and Switching certifications are valid for three years. To recertify, pass ONE of the following before the certification expiration date:
When using a higher level of certification to extend other certifications, the expiration date of other certifications will extend to the expiration date of the higher certification (i.e.: If you have one year left on your CCNA Routing and Switching certification and you earn a CCIE certification (which has a two-year certification life) then both your CCIE certification and your CCNA Routing and Switching certification will expire two years from the date you achieved the CCIE certification).
