** Get Ready to Crush Your Cisco CCNA (200-301) Exam **

Cisco’s most popular certification is their Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification. You can earn this entry-level certification by passing a single exam, which is exam number 200-301, and this course gives you everything you need to prepare for the exam.

This specific CCNA course is a bit unique, because it’s the replay of a live and online course. So, you get that feel of being in a classroom environment and learning, not just from the instructor, but also from student questions and discussions.

Guiding you through your entire journey is award-winning instructor and CCIEx2 Emeritus #7945 Kevin Wallace. Kevin has authored multiple Cisco Press books,was an award-winning speaker at Cisco Live, and was a network designer at Walt Disney World. During the course, Kevin weaves in some “tales from the trenches” from his time at Disney.

Animations, demonstrations, memory aids, and real-life stories all come together in this course to create the connective tissue you need to understand the interrelationships between all of the topics on the CCNA exam blueprint.

You’ll validate your learning with quiz questions after each course module.

What You’ll Get:

  • 18+ hours of instruction from Kevin Wallace, CCIEx2 Emeritus #7945 covering every topic on Cisco’s CCNA (200-301) exam blueprint
  • A practice exam to check your readiness for the real thing
  • Downloadable and printable PDFs of course slides
  • 11 Cisco Packet Tracer labs, with video walkthroughs of lab solutions
