Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices (ICND1) v2.0


Build skills to operate a modern TCP/IP network built with Cisco hardware as you prepare for the CCENT certification exam (100-101 ICND1). In this course, you will learn how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, connecting to a WAN, and identifying basic security threats. You will prepare for the entry-level CCENT certification, which is the foundation for Cisco associate-level certifications and beyond.


Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives :

  • Describe network fundamentals and build simple LANs
  • Establish Internet connectivity
  • Manage network device security
  • Expand small to medium sized networks with WAN connectivity
  • Describe IPv6 basics


  • Individuals seeking the Cisco CCENT certification or Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification
  • Support technicians involved in the basic installation, operation, and verification of LAN networks
  • Entry-level network engineers, network administrators, network support technicians, and help desk technicians

We can also deliver and customise this training course for larger groups saving your organisation time, money and resources. For more information, please make a note when you enquire.
