In the course "Cisco Routing and Switching : ICND1 - Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices 1", you'll be submersed into a three day training program of that will help you develop the skills to operate modern TCP/IP networks that are built with Cisco hardware.
You will also earn the CCENT certification at completion of this course.
This course is beneficial for people that are new to the IT world, and who need to develop more working knowledge of networking for management or sales positions. Additionally, this course would be beneficial for anyone who is seeking to one day obtain CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) certification.
In order to enroll in this course there are certain prerequisites that must be met. You must have a general knowledge of networking concepts. There are other courses that offer an introduction to networking fundamentals, and it would be helpful to have completed this course prior to enrolling in Cisco Routing and Switching.
In this course, you will learn commands, techniques, and tips to help you troubleshoot host connections. You will also learn to configure specific Cisco routers and switches, and go through exercise designed to help you practice managing network equipment and how to restore and back up configuration files. You will take this course in a hands on ICND1 lab environment, and you will be provided with a full set of equipment, which will include two 2611XM Multiservice Routers running 5b Advanced IP Services and a 2950 Catalyst Switch which runs 12.1 IOS CRYPTO Services. You will be assigned a lab partner and together you will obtain realistic, probable experience that will aid you in your future career. Your specific area will be routed to a core router that will act as a Frame Relay switch, so you and your partner's area will be totally independent from the rest of your classmates. Every router will have multiple serial interfaces with a variety of configurations, like HDLC, PPP and many Fast Ethernet Interfaces, allowing conversion support for forwarding paths. This will help you practice trunking, VLANS, STP, and more so that you'll be prepared for your exam.
This course is offered as:
* How various networks function
* Open Systems Interconnection reference model information
* Router switching operation techniques
* Numbering: Binary, decimal, and hexadecimal
* IP subnetting and TCP/IP addressing and routing
* How to configure Cisco Catalyst Switches and Routers
* Skills for network discovery and management while using Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) and Trivial FTP (TFTP)
* An introduction to Cisco Internet Operating System (IOS)
In addition to these key elements of the course, you'll also address network theories, including Virtual Private networks, Intranets and Extranets, wireless networking, and Content Delivery Networks, alongside looking various network components and the various functions of them. In this course you will also learn Host to Host packet delivery processes, and how to provide services to Local Area Networks (LAN), Wide Area Networks (WAN) and other remote access functions.
In addition to the sections of the course and the information covered within each part, there are labs that will be conducted to aid in the instruction of each topic. The labs will vary from hands on tasks like the initial setup of a PC with DHCP to using all of the skills you acquired in the course in order to effectively troubleshoot switch and router configurations. For example, in the troubleshooting switch and routers lab, you will have the opportunity to find and fix errors and then have the chance to evaluate the new configuration and determine if it's functioning as is expected.
Upon successful completion of the course, you may want to look at taking the course ICND1 to further expand on what you learned and tackle other techniques in routing and switching.

The instructor was very knowledgeable about the pen testing and ethical hacking. He was great in delivering the lectures, lab and was very helpful in having us complete the capture the flag exercises. In addition, he provided valuable insight about security in general and pen testing in particular.

Incredible instructor. The coursework covered 300 topics in 10 domains, and he was able to speak intelligently on all of them. Better, his teaching style was relaxed and informal, which lessened the feelings of impending doom about the exam we were about to undertake. He knew exactly which sections of the material to emphasize, when we needed a break, and in many cases was speaking ahead of the slides (he knew exactly what was coming up before turning the slides). Rare gem.

Instructor was very intelligent and had lots of experience to draw on, outside of the written paterial that made it more interesting. I was very pleased with him.
