Eugene, OR (PRWEB) March 28, 2013
CBT Nuggets today announced two online training series specifically designed to help prospective IT administrators prepare for Cisco’s updated CCNA certification exams. Cisco’s revised exams – “Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 (ICND1)” and “Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 (ICND2)” – were announced just this week and mark the first updates to CCNA certification requirements since 2007.
CBT Nuggets’ new video training series – “Cisco CCENT/CCNA ICND1 100-101” and “Cisco CCNA ICND2 200-101” – correspond to Cisco’s exams and provide comprehensive training, which includes instruction on building a home lab. The two series are broken into “nuggets,” or individual lessons lasting approximately 30 to 40 minutes apiece, to offer busy professionals a compelling alternative to traditional classroom test preparation. Content includes:
Cisco CCENT/CCNA ICND1 100-101
- Integration of IPv6 into network design and configuration
- Configuring and applying access control lists
- Configuring and enhancing VLANs
- …and more
Cisco CCNA ICND2 200-101
- Enhancements to Spanning Tree Protocol
- Configuring HSRP, VRRP, and GLBP
- Understanding Frame Relay
- …and more
Both series are hosted by industry veteran Jeremy Cioara, who has been involved in Cisco training and consulting for over 12 years and is a featured annual speaker at the Cisco Live conference.
“One distinct advantage of online training,” said Cioara, “is that viewers don’t need to take time away from work to attend formalized classes – which is a major inconvenience for busy professionals. Traditional classroom training for the ICND1 and ICND2 exams requires 40 hours per exam, or two full work weeks dedicated to lecture-style classes, with an additional 20 hours of online training. And once these courses are complete, attendees cannot easily review complex topics. With CBT Nuggets’ training series, viewers can prepare for CCNA certification in short bursts to meet their scheduling requirements, and can review content on an on-demand basis.”
The deadline to test on the current version of the CCNA is September 20, 2013, and differences between Cisco’s current and revised exams are further addressed in a free online video, or “MicroNugget,” available via the following URL:
