The CCNA Router and Switching certification is one of the most popular certifications in the networking industry. The Cisco CCNA Router and Switching certification validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks, including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN.
This course covers both Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices(ICND) 1 and Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices(ICND) 2. Using a combination of labs and lectures we are able to cover the exam topics thoroughly. The course covers the 200-125 CCNA Router and Switching exam or the 100-105, 200-105 ICND's exam. Students would need to pass either the single 200-125 or both ICND exams to be CCNA certified. Students can also take just 100-105 to become CCENT certified.
This course is not a beginner level networking class. Students should have a basic background in networking which can include work experience or other certifications such as CompTIA Network+. If you are new to the world of networking, we recommend starting with our CompTIA A+ and Network+ courses.
Our course is a live in-person classroom course or a live online class, your choice, and all classes are live instructor-led classes. All classes are held in one of our comfortable classroom locations either in New York City, Washington DC, or live online.
HANDS ON TRAINING
The course will be taught using a wide variety of hands on labs using Cisco routers and switches. Labs will include basic router and switch configurations, IP routing, setting up VLAN’s, configuring access lists, configuring NAT, and setting up WAN’s.
BEST COURSE MATERIALS
The course will also include our customized and proprietary CCNA/CCENT materials. This will include an e-learning course covering networking fundamentals. Students will also be given many practice questions.
CISCO CERTIFIED AND LICENSED INSTRUCTORS
Our CCNA certified and licensed instructors will ensure students only get the best in training. We use a very small pool of instructors to teach this course who must have at least 5 years of Cisco exam training.
UNLIMITED RETAKES OF THE CLASS FOR ONE YEAR
This course will also provide unlimited retakes for one year. You can retake the course as many times as needed completely free. While other providers will allow a retake only if you fail. We don’t believe a retake of a course should be allowed only when a student fails an exam.

We only hire the best instructors. Our instructors for CCNA must have a minimum of 10 years of real world experience and at least 5 years of teaching experience.
There are no prerequisites for the CCNA exam but we do request you have basic computer and networking knowledge before you attend this course.
Choosing a training provider can be tough choice. We all claim to offer the best value, in terms of price, passing rates, and guarantee. The Technical Institute of America offers the lowest price, one of the best passing rate, and an excellent guarantee.

Lab 19: Final review
"Great class! I was able to pass the CCNA exam very easily. The labs were fun and challenging. I recommend this course to anyone looking to pass their CCNA."Ricardo
"Instructor was very clear and concise. He explained the topics in an easy to understand manner. The labs were fun and made passing the real CCNA exam easy."Michael
"Very good hands-on course. Instructor were excellent and really knew their material."Candice
"Having the right instructor makes all the difference, when trying to learn complex topics. I tried self-studying but it was hard making time and understanding the topics by myself. Our instructor was able to make the material very easy and fun to learn. His method of not using the book, but explaining while we were doing the lab made the class enjoyable."Anthony
"I just passed my CCNA exam. The class helped me understand the concepts and how to apply them. Andrew was a fun instructor. His unique approach to teaching was great."Frank
