What you will do in this class

In each course, Cisco Networking Academy students will learn technology concepts with the support of interactive media and apply and practice this knowledge through a series of hands-on and simulated activities that reinforce their learning:

  • Students complete a basic procedural lab, followed by configuration, implementation, and troubleshooting labs.
  • Cisco Packet Tracer activities allow students to model and analyze routing processes that may be difficult to visualize or understand and practice their skills within simulated networks.
  • Quizzes, skills assessments, chapter exams, and practice exams provide feedback as students advance through the curriculum.

Skills you will learn

Design, calculate, and apply subnet masks in IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Build an Ethernet network using routers and switches. Use Cisco command-line interface (CLI) commands to perform basic router and switch configurations. Utilize common network utilities to verify small network operations and analyze data traffic. Configure and troubleshoot basic operations of a small switched network. Configure and troubleshoot VLANs and inter-VLAN routing. Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot ACLs for IPv4 and IPv6. Learn by doing. It’s faster, easier to remember, and you won’t get bored.
