Who Should Take 200-301 CCNA Training?
This CCNA training is considered associate-level Cisco training, which means it was designed for junior network administrators. This 200-301 CCNA course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with networks and experienced network administrators looking to validate their Cisco skills.
New or aspiring network administrators. Learning networking technologies for the first time can seem like a daunting task. From subnetting to spanning trees, there is a lot to study and understand. Our CCNA training lays it all out for the new network professional. The course is both broad and deep, covering important topics in a way that prepares you for the challenging CCNA exams.
Experienced network administrators. The technologies associated with Cisco routing and switching have been around for a long time now. But in the fast-paced telecommunications industry, a good deal of the technology changes every year. That’s why Cisco requires regular recertification for CCNA professionals. CCNA training will help experienced professionals refresh their skills and prepare for recertification.
