This intermediate Cisco CCNA training prepares learners to take the 200-301 exam, which is the one required exam to earn the CCNA certification.
It's pretty indisputable that Cisco is the market leader when it comes to routing and switching. Cisco has a little over half the market, and the closest competition can barely scrape 10%: it's a safe bet to say that knowledge of Cisco technologies is among the most marketable and immediately beneficial skills a network administrator could get. The CCNA certification is an industry standard because it covers every fundamental aspect to administering the world's most prevalent routing and switching technology -- this training is just shy of essential for any network administrator.
For anyone who manages routing and switching training, this Cisco training can be used for 200-301 exam prep, onboarding new network administrators, individual or team training plans, or as a Cisco reference resource.

This CCNA training covers 200-301 routers and switches exam objectives, including these topics:

Who Should Take CCNA Training?
This CCNA training is considered associate-level Cisco training, which means it was designed for network administrators. This routers and switches skills course is designed for network administrators with three to five years of experience with network infrastructure.
New or aspiring network administrators. The CCNA certification is Cisco's way of saying that a network administrator is ready and capable of anything that the routers and switches of a fair-sized network could throw at them. If you're starting out in your career, look no further than the CCNA for verification of your knowledge of network fundamentals, network access, IP connectivity, IP services and security fundamentals.
Experienced network administrators. For network administrators who've already been in the field for several years, there are a few reasons they may not have earned their CCNA yet. The most common reason is that an administrator has been doing a lot of what's on the exam already, they just learned it on the job. Another is that they've been isolated in their work experience and haven't spread their experience around. Either way, with this CCNA training, you'll be ready to certify and validate your associate-level competence on Cisco networks.
