Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) v3.0 is a five-day, instructor-led training course that teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network.

Course Description

Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) v3.0 is a five-day, instructor-led training course that teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network. Learners will gain experience configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, managing network devices, and identifying basic security threats. In addition, this course prepares learners for Cisco CCNA certification.

The course focuses on the functions of networking, knowledge of Cisco routers and switches, establishing internet connectivity, managing ACLs, configuring device security, implementing VLANs and trunks, configuring static routing and RIPv2, and becoming familiar with IPv6.

All configuration commands are introduced through examples and supported with lab exercises. A full suite of labs have been developed using the virtual IOS environment with flexible topologies that reinforce concepts with hands-on, guided discovery and challenge labs that align to each lesson module.

Optimally, this course can be followed by the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) v3.0 course which also prepares learners for Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification.
