CCNA Boot Camp

CCNA Bootcamp combines both the ICND – 1 and ICND -2 classes into one 5 day accelerated class that is presented by Cisco training partners to their end customers. Channel Partners nationwide hire proven AMS Subject Matter Expert Cisco Certified Systems Instructors (CCSI’s) to teach on-site or on-line classes.

Students will learn fundamental computer networking concepts and apply them as they configure a LAN/WAN network using Cisco routers and Catalyst switches. Through lectures, discussions, demonstrations, exercises, and laboratory projects, students are given information sufficient to identify and recommend the best Cisco solutions for anywhere from small to enterprise-sized businesses. CCNA ACC also provides the installation, configuration, and troubleshooting information that technical support people require to install, manage, and configure Cisco products.
