CCNA Boot Camp (8 days)

8 Day Course
Hands On
Official Curriculum

This course has been superseded by the Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions course.


Course Topics (18 topics)

  • Describe computer hardware basics, binary and hexadecimal number systems, basic networking terminology, and internetworking concepts
  • Identify the major components of a network system, including clients and servers, network interface cards (NICs), internetworking devices, media, and topologies
  • Describe the functions, operations, and primary components of local-area networks (LANs), wide-area networks (WANs), metropolitan-area networks (MANs), storage-area networks (SANs), content networks (CNs), and virtual private networks (VPNs)
  • Describe the major network access methods and outline the key features of each
  • Describe the functions and operations of switching technologies
  • Explain the format and significance of each of the following components to a network system: IP addressing, classes, reserved address space, and subnetting
  • Calculate valid subnetwork addresses and mask values so that user/network requirements are met when given an IP address scheme
  • Explain the purposes of networking addresses, routing protocols, and routed protocols
  • Describe the functions, operations, and primary components of WAN technologies
  • Describe the function, operation, and primary components required to provide remote access services
  • Use available configuration tools to establish connectivity to the appropriate network device in order to complete the initial device configuration
  • Build a functional configuration to support the specified network operational requirements, given a network design
  • Use the appropriate show commands to display network operational parameters so that anomalites are detected
  • Use the appropriate debug commands to monitor network operational parameters so that anomalies are detected
  • Explain how bridging and switching operates
  • Explain the purpose and operations of the Spanning-Tree Protocol
  • Build a functional router configuration to support the specified network operational requirements, given a network design
  • Describe the features and operation of static routing


Delegates should have a reasonable understanding of the basics of Routing and Switching technologies – they should be familiar with a PC, understand how to change an IP address on a PC, use the ipconfig command and understand the different types of Ethernet cable. If you're new to networking and to Cisco IOS, consider taking the ICND1 and ICND2 classes instead of this bootcamp. We strongly encourage career changers and people new to internetworking to gain the foundation knowledge needed by taking Network+.
