CISCO Network Associate (CCNA) Networking
The following four courses will provide students with a solid background in basic networking concepts and CISCO hardware. MIT 146 and MIT 246, combined, are preparation for the CCNA Discovery - ICND1 (640-822) exam. MIT 346 and MIT 446, combined, are preparation for the CCNA Exploration - ICND2 (640-816) exam. These courses are an ideal way to prepare for CCNA certification, which is one of the premier industry credentials among networking professionals. All courses are delivered by a CISCO CCNA certified instructor, using CISCO materials, including hands-on lab exercises to reinforce networking concepts. Students who successfully complete these courses will be better positioned to independently challenge the external CCNA certification exam at a local testing centre.
