For about a month now, C4DLab, the just recently confirmed Cisco Networking Academy, has been training on one of the courses offered by Cisco, having almost completed the first module.
The students who are now preparing for their exams, had registered on C4Dlab’s website, after the training was advertised for about one month before it commenced on March 2 this year.
Further, to be taken by 17 trainees, the exams will be setting the stage for the commencement of the second module, that is CCNA2 on May 4.
Meanwhile, learning under a well-equipped lab and essential practicals, the students covered such aspects as “ Exploring the Network”, “Configuring Network Operating System”, “Network Protocols and Communications”, “Network Access”, “Internet Protocol Layers”, “IP Addressing”, and “Subnetting IP Networks”.
CCNA1, essentially, 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. By the end of the course, students should have been able to build simple Local Area Networks (LANS), perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes.
To register for CCNA2, interested persons, including but not limited to network specialists, administrators, and network support engineers could check registration details at the C4DLab website.
Eventually, the Cisco Certified Network Associates (CCNA) course is considered complete once the trainee has done the CCNA Routing and Switching (comprising four modules) and the CCNA Security programme. In between, the Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) exam is taken after the successful completion of the first two modules of the CCNA Routing and Switching course, or all the four modules.
