A 5 day
training course

ICND1 training course description

This course provides entry-level network administrators and network support with the knowledge and skills needed to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot a small enterprise network. ICND1 focuses on understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common networking issues, configuring EIGRP and multiarea OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding WAN technologies, and becoming familiar with device management. Students will have a total of 70 hours lab access to use over a period of 180 days this includes access during the actual class.

Key outcomes from this course

By the end of the course delegates will be able to:
  • Describe network fundamentals and build simple LANs.
  • Establish Internet connectivity.
  • Expand small- to medium-sized networks with routing enabled.
  • Configure, manage and monitor Cisco devices.
  • Describe IPv6 basics.

Why Choose Us

SNT trainers score an average of over 90% on the three main areas of:
  • Ability to teach
  • Technical knowledge
  • Answering questions
“Excellently presented by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic trainer.” P.D. General Dynamics

We limit our maximum class size to 8 delegates; often we have less than this. This ensures optimal interactivity between delegates and instructor.
"Excellent course. The small class size was a great benefit…" M.B. IBM

We write our own courses; courseware does not just consist of slides and our slides are diagrams not bullet point text. A typical chapter provides clearly defined objectives with a chapter overview, slides with text underneath, a quiz at the end to check the learning of the students. Hands on exercises are at the end and are used to reinforce the theory.
