Infosec’s authorized CCNA, CCENT, CCDA and CCNA: Security quad certification training is an accelerated, in-depth course that can help IT professionals build a foundation in and apprentice knowledge of networking. CCNA/CCENT certified professionals can install, configure and operate LAN, WAN and dial access services for small networks, including but not limited to use of these protocols: IP, EIGRP, Serial, VLANs, RIP, Ethernet and OSPF.
This training is designed specifically for network engineers and administrators requiring full knowledge of Cisco router and switch configuration. Infosec supplements your core routing and switching knowledge in class with an additional focus on the two hottest areas of networking: network security and infrastructure design. In this course, we prepare you for exam success, and after passing the CCNA/CCENT exams, you then train directly on CCNA: Security and CCDA (CCDA not included with Infosec Skills on-demand training platform) curricula all in one sitting.
In today’s economy, there are many CCNA-certified individuals on the job market. To distinguish yourself, it is important to demonstrate proficiencies in the subject areas most needed by employers today: routing and switching, infrastructure design and security. In our survey of the networking professional job market, a majority of enterprise networking positions require or desire experience in network design and security in addition to core routing and switching skills.
In our module-by-module analysis of the official CCENT/CCNA courseware, we have discovered many areas that overlap between the CCNA courseware and the CCDA and CCNA: Security courseware. The Infosec CCNA/CCENT/CCDA/CCNA: Security boot camp course gives you the opportunity to apply your knowledge learned in the CCNA/CCENT portion of the boot camp to the CCDA and CCNA: Security portion immediately!
In the Infosec CCNA/CCENT/CCDA/CCNA: Security boot camp, you increase skills through hands-on practice using remotely accessed pods of Cisco equipment. There is no better way to gain real-world hands on experience than in our lab environment. In addition, the most difficult portion of the CCNA exam is typically the sim questions, which require you to have intimate knowledge of how to properly configure routers and switches. Our lab environment prepares you for exam success, as well as for a real-world networking and switching environment.
You have two options for achieving the CCNA certification (both options result in the CCNA certification):
With over 10 years of experience preparing students for Cisco certifications, we’ve found taking the two ICND exams (option #2) offers a much better chance of CCNA certification success. Having two exams allows you to break up your exam preparation into two distinct phases during your training. Our CCNA boot camp concentrates all efforts on passing the ICND1 exam during your first three days. You can then switch your focus to taking the ICND2 exam on the fifth day of the boot camp.
In addition to helping you achieve CCNA certification, we’ve found the two-exam approach allows you more time to build real-world networking skills. Our CCNA Quad Certification training also prepares you for the CCNA: Security and CCDA exams. You’ll finish your training with four Cisco certifications.
Last time I attempted to certify on CCNA was with a competitor, and I was imperessed with the instructors style and delivery. However, once I had experienced your method of teaching, I then had a different view. He made understanding the subnetting so much easier. He explained things that didnt make sense, and the labs he provided were outstanding.
CCNA Training Boot Camp with 4 Certifications, DLA
The CCNA exam itself has no prerequisites, and there are no specific degree requirements to hold the certification. However, it is recommended that you have at least two years of real-world networking experience before preparing for the exam. Familiarity with networking basics like routing, switching and TCP/IP protocol will go a long way.
CCNA certification is recognized as a key route for network professionals on their way to a rewarding career in the Cisco internetworking field. The demand for highly skilled network professionals increases daily. Infosec’s authorized CCNA course is an innovative and challenging training designed specifically for network engineers and administrators requiring full knowledge of Cisco router and switch configuration.
The Cisco CCENT certification validates the skills required for entry-level network support positions, the starting point for many successful careers in networking. Candidates should have the knowledge and skill to install, operate and troubleshoot a small enterprise branch network, including basic network security. CCENT certification is the first step toward achieving CCNA, which covers medium-size enterprise branch networks with more complex connections.
Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) validates that you have the 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.
With a CCNA Security certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to develop a security infrastructure, recognize threats and vulnerabilities to networks, and mitigate security threats. The CCNA Security curriculum emphasizes core security technologies — the installation, troubleshooting and monitoring of network devices to maintain integrity, confidentiality and availability of data and devices, and competency in the technologies that Cisco uses in its security structure. The National Security Agency (NSA) recognizes that Cisco CCNA Security courseware meets the CNSS 4011 training standard.

The Cybersecurity Specialist/Technician role includes a variety of entry-level information security positions commonly held by people who are transitioning from IT and networking into cybersecurity. This role requires knowledge of areas such as network security, vulnerability assessments and intrusion detection. The Cybersecurity Specialist/Technician is one of four entry-level, core cybersecurity roles mapped directly to the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education’s CyberSeek model.
The Incident Analyst/Responder role includes a variety of entry-level information security positions focused on responding to cybersecurity incidents. This role requires an understanding of security operations, a foundation of technical skills related to information and network security, and strong communication skills. The Incident Analyst/Responder is one of four entry-level, core cybersecurity roles mapped directly to the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education’s CyberSeek model.
The CCNA is one of the most highly regarded entry-level IT certifications on the market today. Earning the CCNA proves to colleagues and employers that you are an educated networking professional that’s able to manage small to medium-sized networks in the real world.
There are two ways for students to earn the CCNA certification. The first option is to take the 200-125 exam. This is a longer, more difficult examination where you answer 50-60 questions within a 90 minute timeframe. The second option is to take two smaller exams, the 100-105 ICND1 and the 200-105 ICND2. Both of these exams are between 45-55 questions that are required to be completed in 90 minutes. The price for the exam will vary depending on the exam you’d prefer to take, with the 200-125 exam costing $325 and the ICND1 & ICND2 exams costing $165 each.
No matter which exam you take, the majority of the questions will be in a multiple choice format. In addition to multiple choice, you will be required to complete both “drag and drop” and simulation questions. In order to pass the exam, you must score 825 or higher out of the 1,000 possible points.
Simulation questions will present you with a scenario that you will then need to investigate and solve. Simulation questions are more intensive, and thus can carry greater weight than the multiple choice or drag and drop questions. Infosec’s boot camp lab environment will prepare you for all of the question types found on the exam.
The CCNA is one of the most highly-regarded certifications in the IT industry, which in recent years has grown at a considerably steady rate. In fact, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that between 2016 and 2026, employment opportunities for computer and information technology professionals are expected to increase by 13%. Becoming certified is a surefire way to stand out in this competitive industry.
Upon successful completion of our training course, you will hold the following four Cisco certifications: CCNA R&S, CCENT, CCDA and CCNA: Security. Our boot camp’s lab environment will give you unmatched hands-on experience with Cisco-certified materials to prepare you for the CCNA exam(s). Our boot camp also includes all four Cisco exam vouchers. Lastly, our Exam Pass Guarantee can give you the peace of mind you need in order to study effectively!
CCNA certifications are valid for three years after their date of issue and can be renewed before their expiration date by passing the designated recertification exam(s). Click here for more information on CCNA recertification.
Other rigorous certification processes, like the MCSE, require that students take seven different exams in order to demonstrate their expertise — whereas the CCNA only requires you to take one or two exams. While the Network+ certification is also attractive as an entry-level certification, it doesn’t cover the more advanced networking and technology specific concepts that Cisco does in the CCNA.
Students typically find that the most difficult topic to comprehend on the CCNA exam is WAN Protocols, specifically anything to do with PPP, Frame Relay or ISDN. Brushing up on routing protocols (RIP, IGRP, OSPF, etc.) and access lists (basic and advanced) is also recommended.
There is no limit to the amount of times one can take the exam(s). The only protocol Cisco has is that the candidate must wait 5 calendar days before retaking the exam. While the CCNA has a high first-time fail rate, Infosec boot camp students have a passing rate of 93%!
Common job titles for CCNA professionals include: Network Engineer, System Administrator, Technical Support Engineer, Computer Systems Analyst and many more.
Apart from developing good habits of self-study, it is recommended that students gain practical experience related to the fundamentals of routing and switching. Enrolling in a training boot camp like the one offered here is also a proven strategy for success! Click here for more practical tips.
CCNA holders can negotiate higher salaries for themselves and make between $39,195 to $118,830 annually —depending on location, job title and experience. Click here for more info on CCNA salaries.
