Overview

This accelerated Cisco CCNA course - Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions - is replacing all CCDA and CCNA certifications, including the popular CCNA Routing and Switching.

You'll be immersed in a broad range of IT fundamentals; from networking technologies, to security essentials, automation and programmability.

Achieve your CCNA certification in just 6 days – that’s 33% faster than traditional training. On this accelerated course, you’ll get everything you need to certify, including exam 200-301 CCNA.

Traditional providers do not include Cisco’s required 3-day self-study modules. Train with Firebrand and cover these modules during the course.

Similar to the soon-to-be-retired CCNA Routing and Switching, through this CCNA certification you'll learn how to navigate network access, IP connectivity and IP services, enabling your business to be more flexible and scalable. In just 6 days, you'll learn the fundamentals of:

  • The TCP/IP Internet layer, IPv4, its addressing scheme and subnetting
  • Implementing and verifying virtual local area networks (VLANs) and trunks
  • WAN, VPN and QoS concepts

At the end of the course, you'll sit exam 200-301 CCNA and achieve the Cisco Certified Network Associate certification. You'll get access to official courseware and learn from certified Cisco instructors, as Firebrand are a Cisco Learning Partner.


Audience


This course is ideal for:

The new CCNA explained


After 23rd February 2020, Cisco will be retiring all existing CCDA and CCNA certifications and replacing them with the Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions (CCNA). The popular CCNA Routing and Switching is also being retired.

Here's the full list of CCNA and CCDA certifications that are retiring:

If you have already started working towards any of the above CCDA or CCNA certifications, or are interested in doing so before February 23rd, you should continue to pursue it - you have until then to complete these certifications.

For a comprehensive guide to the updates, take a look at this blog covering Cisco's massive 2020 certification changes.

 

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 6 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass 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
  5. You’ll learn more. 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
  6. You’ll learn 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
  7. You’ll be studying 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 75956 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business

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.

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.

"It is a very hard training and I don't think it's suitable for complete beginners in networking. Our instructor was very competent and the location was excellent."
Christian Dietrich. (4/12/2017 (Monday) to 10/12/2017 (Sunday))

"The trainer was good instructor. Amazing support staff and great food."
Jason ONeill. (16/3/2020 (Monday) to 21/3/2020 (Saturday))

"A work colleague recommended Firebrand training to me. I wasn’t too keen as the price was steep for my budget. I invested and have no regrets. Everything works like a clockwork at Firebrand. I traveled by train to the local station, was collected by Firebrand taxi without any delay. Was taken to the on-campus hotel, a short moment later was my induction, after which the actual training commenced. The lectures start early in the morning and end late evening. Labs are open and available 24/7. Food & accommodation – great. Quality of tutoring – unparalleled. Concise, yet in depth. All I needed to learn and pass. Thank you."
J.L.. (2/12/2019 (Monday) to 8/12/2019 (Sunday))

"Best training center in the UK ."
Mark ben Langley, GLI. (14/10/2019 (Monday) to 20/10/2019 (Sunday))

"It is an intensive course that is rich with content. It requires a lot of concentration, however, there are minimal distractions so you are able to concentrate fully on your course. I have come away with significantly more knowledge on my subject area."
Ben Griffin, Infrastar Ltd. (14/10/2019 (Monday) to 20/10/2019 (Sunday))
