The new CCNA explained

Since the 24th of February 2020, Cisco retired all existing CCDA and CCNA certifications and replaced them with the Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions (CCNA). The popular CCNA Routing and Switching has also been retired.

Here's the full list of CCNA and CCDA certifications that have retired:

Seven reasons why you should sit your CCNA course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be CCNA certified in just 6 days. With us, you’ll be CCNA trained in record time
  2. Our CCNA course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass CCNA first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more CCNA. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn CCNA faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying CCNA with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 76,560 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study CCNA courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

Benefits

Use your Cisco Learning Credits (CLCs)

You may be entitled to free training via Cisco Learning Credits (CLCs). If you’ve bought Cisco hardware or software - check the invoice to see if you have credits waiting to be used! If you’re unsure, get in touch with us.

Your first exposure to Cisco technology should be hands-on. That's why this accelerated 6-day Cisco CCNA course includes real Cisco labs, giving you the practical experience you need when applying your skills in the real world.

24-7 lab access will give you the experience you need to prepare for the 200-301 exam, which you’ll take during your course. Plus, you’ll be sitting your exams at the Firebrand Training Centre, just steps away from your classroom.

Gold certification from the IPv6 Forum Education Certification Program

Cisco CCNA, CCNP and CCIE Routing and Switching Certifications have received Gold accreditation from the IPv6 Forum Education Certification Program. Gain your CCNA certification and you’ll be able to display the IPv6 logo, proving that you have attained professional IPv6 knowledge and skills.

The IPv6 forum is a worldwide consortium of leading internet vendors, industry subject matter experts, research and education networks. Their mission is to promote the adoption of IPv6 technology.

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
