Course v2.0 | Prepares you for Cisco Exam 640-802 CCNA. On June 25, 2007, Cisco announced major updates to their CCNA curricula. This course will prepare you for the new version of the CCNA Composite Exam (640-802 CCNA). Based on Course 5085 ICND1 and Course 5090 ICND2, the CCNA Boot Camp is an intensive program, designed to help you achieve your CCNA certification in the shortest period of time possible. To maximize your classroom experience and ensure that you get comprehensive coverage of the CCNA materials, our three-step, blended learning approach to the CCNA Boot Camp consists of:
1) Pre-Class Activity
2) Classroom Instruction
3) Post-Class Lab Practice
The Pre-Class Activity provides you with approximately ten hours of review materials and exercises, including a pre-test assessment, Self-Paced e-Learning content, and a readiness test, all designed to give you a firm foundation and get you focused and prepared to get the most out of Classroom Instruction.
Classroom Instruction includes intensive instructor-led training and hands-on labs where you'll learn to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-sized routed and switched networks. You'll also learn the basics of wireless networking as well as mitigating security threats. During Classroom Instruction, you'll have 24-hour lab access.
Following Classroom Instruction, ten e-Lab credits for Post-Class Lab Practice allow you to hone your skills using the same hands-on lab equipment you used in the classroom.
