Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA)
(CCNA) Courses at the American Academy
CCNA is an advanced professional diploma provided by The American Academy for Training Courses (AATC) which is an ISO-9001 accredited language learning and training center, collaborating with Atlanta Institute and the American Academy is one of the largest language learning centers all over Egypt.
- What is Cisco?
Cisco is a US worldwide leader in networking and providing routers and switches. Furthermore, Cisco has developed its own training programs which are well-reputable all over the world, having established its Cisco Networking Academy providing networking certificates which are accredited everywhere in the world.
Certified Cisco Network Associate (CCNA) certificate validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks.
Introduction to Networks
Introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and computer networks. The principles of IP addressing and fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum. By the end of the course, students will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes.
Routing and Switching Essentials
Describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
Describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a large and complex network. Students learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, STP, and VTP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement DHCP and DNS operations in a network.
Discusses the WAN technologies and network services required by converged applications in a complex network. The course enables students to understand the selection criteria of network devices and WAN technologies to meet network requirements. Students learn how to configure and troubleshoot network devices and resolve common issues with data link protocols. Students also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement IPSec and virtual private network (VPN) operations in a complex network
