This course is designed for individuals who have end-user computer skills and some level of IT experience or technology aptitude, who are seeking an IT career in supporting Cisco® technologies, and who need training on networking fundamentals, IP connectivity and services, security fundamentals, and the basics of automation and programmability, all in the context of a Cisco environment.
This course is also designed for students who are seeking the Cisco® Certified Network Associate (CCNA®) certification and who want to prepare for CCNA Exam v1.0 (200-301).
To ensure your success in this course, you should have experience with computer user skills, including the ability to complete tasks in a Microsoft Windows environment and the ability to search for and access information on the Internet. You can obtain this level of skill and knowledge by taking one of the following South African Career Campus courses:
- Introduction to Personal Computers Using Microsoft® Windows® 10
- Using Microsoft® Windows® 10
- Microsoft® Windows® 10: Transition from Windows® 7
You should also have intermediate knowledge of computing and networking concepts. Any type of technology or system administration training or certification, or experience working in an IT environment, is strongly recommended. For instance, other industry certifications such as CompTIA®'s ITF+®, A+®, or Network+® may be especially helpful for students who are preparing for the CCNA 200-301 exam.
