Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices (ICND) pt1

Course Description

As well as having industry leading trainers, Cisco course material and cutting edge virtual labs, we also introduced real world equipment into classrooms, to enhance the delegate learning experience. The additional equipment allows the delegate to test out lab practical’s in a safe environment, interconnect devices, diagnose faults and importantly practice cable repair / production before they get “on the job!” This course focuses on providing the skills and knowledge necessary to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small branch office Enterprise network, including configuring a switch, a router, and connecting to a WAN and implementing network security. A Student should be able to complete configuration and implementation of a small branch office network under supervision.
