Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching Boot Camp (CCNAX - Accelerated)

  • Course Availability

Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) CCNA 640-802

Course Title: Cisco CCNA Certification Fast Track Boot Camp

Course Code: CCNABC
Version: 2.0
Duration: 5 Days

Course Overview

The Cisco CCNA Certification Fast Track Boot Camp (CCNABC) training course is an intensive programme designed to prepare candidates for the latest version of the CCNA Composite Exam 640-802 CCNA. Based on the content from our ICND1 and ICND2 courses, this comprehensive course is designed to help candidates achieve their CCNA certification in the shortest possible timeframe. In order to provide the best possible learning experience and ensure that candidates get comprehensive coverage of the CCNA materials, we offer a three-step, blended learning approach, consisting of:

Pre-class activity which provides approximately ten hours of review material and exercises to be completed before classes, including a pre-test assessment, self-paced e-Learning content as well as a readiness test - all of which are designed to give a strong foundation and provide preparation for topics to be discussed during the class session.

Classroom instruction that includes intensive training with an instructor and lab sessions where candidates will learn to install, configure, operate and troubleshoot medium-sized routed and switched networks. This course will also teach the basics of wireless networking as well as instruction on how to reduce and avoid security threats. During the classroom instruction period, candidates will have access to the labs 24 hours a day.

Real world equipment which will be used in classrooms to enhance the learning experience and complement the remote lab based exercises. The additional equipment allows physical access to networking devices for a more `hands on` learning approach.

Where practical and time permitting; candidates can use any free time to interconnect devices, diagnose faults and (importantly) practice cable repair / production and connection - all of which will provide the essential skills required for this industry.

Following on from the classroom instruction, this course also includes ten e-Lab credits for Post-Class Lab Practice which will allow candidates to improve their skills using the same `hands on` lab equipment used in the classroom and in order to further improve learning rates, we include both the ICND1 and ICND2 self-paced e-Learning CDs allowing candidates to study and improve their knowledge anywhere and in their own time.

The CCNA 640-802 course offers:
  • Approximately 10 hours of pre-class activity
  • Enhanced content that exceeds standard authorised Cisco content
  • World class Certified Cisco Systems instructors
  • CCNA workbook and lab guide
  • Exclusive additional labs
  • Additional study aids to help candidates pass the CCNA exam
  • Inclusive ICND1 and ICND2 self-paced e-Learning CDs
  • 10 e-Lab credits for lab practice during the week following class
  • Access to Self Test Software`s exam prep products
  • One inclusive exam voucher for CCNA 640-802

Please note that the CCNA 640-802 course is an accelerated programme that delivers 10 days worth of training within the span of 5 days. As a result the start and finish times may be variable dependent on candidate`s skill, experience and speed of learning. Sessions typically start at 9am and may extend to 7pm in the evening if required. It is also a requirement of the course that candidates complete the pre-course work prior to the start of the course as the content covers items essential to the successful running of the programme and will enhance both the individual and class learning experiences.

Target Audience

The CCNA 640-802 Cisco training course is suitable for individuals who possess a general networking background, have some experience with Cisco IOS and are seeking CCNA certification. This class is also the quickest way to meet the requirements of the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) exam.
