5 days

In this intensive five-day Cisco Certified Design Associate Boot Camp, get the training and practice you need to design a strong, effective network as you prepare for the Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) v2.1 exam required for Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) certification.

Your CCDA Boot Camp package includes the following added benefits:

  • CCDA workbook
  • Highly-skilled CCSI (Cisco Certified System Instructors) with real-world experience

Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA®) validates knowledge required to design a Cisco converged network. With a CCDA certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to design routed and switched network infrastructures and services involving LAN, WAN, and broadband access for businesses and organizations. The CCDA curriculum includes designing basic campus, data center, security, voice, and wireless networks.nly five days.

DESGN eBook is available for this course.
