Coming Soon: New Cisco CCNA Training!
Come February, the Cisco CCNA as currently we know it will be no more. Instead of having to take multiple exams to earn different CCNA certifications, there will be one CCNA to rule them all. Even better yet, learners will only have to pass one exam to get certified.
The new Cisco CCNA 200-301 exam goes live February 24, 2020. But CBT Nuggets learners won't have to wait until then to start training. Trainers Keith Barker, Jeremy Cioara, and Chuck Keith are creating videos for a new Cisco CCNA certification course that maps to the 200-301 exam. The course will contain more than 50 hours of content. Want to be notified when the new training is available? Sign up below to be notified and be entered for a chance to win some CBTN swag!
The Cisco CCNA 200-301 exam covers a wide breadth of foundational knowledge, including networking, security, and even automation. Here's a sneak preview of some of the skills our new CCNA training will cover:
- IPv4 Subnetting like a Pro (not to mention plenty of IPv6)
- Cisco NAT Concepts and Base Configuration
- Configure network VLANs between switches, WAPs, and servers
- Design, Configure, and Verify Wireless Networks and Security protocols
- Describe Network Switch Functions and Learn how to Locate Network Devices
- Service Mayhem: DHCP, SNMP, Syslog, PoE, and QoS

Skills to Move You & Your Career Forward
Cisco is the gold standard when it comes to networking technology. So, Cisco CCNA certification is the perfect foundation for a successful networking career because it covers the knowledge and skills an entry-level IT pro needs.
You can learn networking essentials that not only prepare you to pass the 200-301 exam, but succeed on the job. A skills-based approach is designed with real-world practicality and application in mind.
Get Ahead of the Curve
Most of our current ICND1 and ICND2 training applies to the new Cisco CCNA. You can do a lot of legwork with that training — and be ready to hit the ground running when the CCNA certification course is released.
Also, Jeremy, Keith, and fellow CBT Nuggets trainer Jeff Kish currently are devoting current live streams to CCNA-related content! It's a great way to get a move on your new CCNA journey and interact with several expert IT trainers.
A New Era of Cisco Certification
Earlier this year, Cisco announced it was overhauling its certification program. Just about every Cisco certification level is impacted, but none more than the CCNA. Here's a recap of all the changes, including a new DevNet Associate certification.
We've recently rolled out DevNet Associate training to CBT Nuggets, which is a new addition to the Cisco certification program. Keith Barker, Ben Finkel, and Knox Hutchinson worked together on the new DevNet Associate training.
A new era of Cisco certification is just around the corner. Get ready.
