COURSE MODULES AND OBJECTIVES

The complete CCNA R&S offered at AFRALTI covers the following four (4) parts:

  1. CCNA1 – Introduction to Networks
  2. CCNA2 – Routing and Switching Essentials
  • CCNA3 – Scaling Networks
  1. CCNA4 – Connecting Networks

 

CCNA 1: Introduction to Networks – Objectives

This course introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. The principles and structure of IP addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum. By the end of the course, students will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes. Students who complete Introduction to Networks will be able to perform the following functions:

  • Understand and describe the devices and services used to support communications in data networks and the Internet
  • Understand and describe the role of protocol layers in data networks
  • Understand and describe the importance of addressing and naming schemes at various layers of data networks in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  • Design, calculate, and apply subnet masks and addresses to fulfill given requirements in IPv4 and IPv6 networks
  • Explain fundamental Ethernet concepts such as media, services, and operations
  • Build a simple Ethernet network using routers and switches
  • Use Cisco command-line interface (CLI) commands to perform basic router and switch configurations
  • Utilize common network utilities to verify small network operations and analyze data traffic

 

CCNA 2: Routing and Switching Essentials – Objectives

This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPng, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Students who complete the Routing and Switching Essentials course will be able to perform the following functions:

  • Understand and describe basic switching concepts and the operation of Cisco switches
  • Understand and describe the purpose, nature, and operations of a router, routing tables, and the route lookup process
  • Understand and describe how VLANs create logically separate networks and how routing occurs between them
  • Understand and describe dynamic routing protocols, distance vector routing protocols, and link-state routing protocols
  • Configure and troubleshoot static routing and default routing (RIP and RIPng)
  • Configure and troubleshoot an Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) network
  • Understand, configure, and troubleshoot access control lists (ACLs) for IPv4 and IPv6 networks
  • Understand, configure, and troubleshoot Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) for IPv4 and IPv6 networks
  • Understand, configure, and troubleshoot Network Address Translation (NAT) operations

 

CCNA 3: Scaling Networks – Objectives

This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in larger and more complex networks. Students learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, and STP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement a WLAN in a small-to-medium network. Students who complete the Scaling Networks course will be able to perform the following functions:

  • Understand, configure and troubleshoot enhanced switching technologies such as VLANs, Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), Per VLAN Spanning Tree Plus Protocol (PVST+), and EtherChannel
  • Understand, configure, and troubleshoot first hop redundancy protocols (HSRP) in a switched network
  • Understand, configure, and troubleshoot wireless routers and wireless clients
  • Configure and troubleshoot routers in a complex routed IPv4 or IPv6 network using single-area OSPF, multiarea OSPF, and Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)
  • Manage Cisco IOS® Software licensing and configuration files

 

CCNA 4: Connecting Networks – Objectives

This course discusses the WAN technologies and network services required by converged applications in a complex network. The course enables students to understand the selection criteria of network devices and WAN technologies to meet network requirements. Students learn how to configure and troubleshoot network devices and resolve common issues with data link protocols. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement virtual private network (VPN) operations in a complex network.  Students who complete the Connecting Networks course will be able to perform the following functions:

  • Understand and describe different WAN technologies and their benefits
