Overview

Cisco Network Academy

ECPI’s Cisco Academy program for Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size route and switched networks, including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN. CCNA curriculum includes basic mitigation of security threats, introduction to wireless networking concepts and terminology, and performance-based skills.

This program is approved for Veterans and Tuition Assistance.

Protocols Covered:

  • Internet Protocol (IP)
  • Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)
  • Serial Line Interface Protocol Frame Relay
  • Routing Information Protocol Version 2 (RIPv2)
  • Virtual LAN (VLAN)
  • Ethernet
  • Access Control Lists (ACLs)
  • After completion there are two certification exams taken at the ECPI test center to become certified

The 640-822, Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 (100-101) is the exam associated with the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT) certification and a tangible first step in achieving the Cisco Certified Network Associate certification.

The 640-816 Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 (200-101) is the exam associated with the Cisco Certified Network Associate certification.
