Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated (CCNAX), is a course consisting of ICND1 and ICND2 content in its entirety, but with the content merged into a single 5-day course. Overlapping content between ICND1 and ICND2 is eliminated and content is rearranged for the purpose of the course flow. CCNAX prepares students for exam #200-120 CCNA in an accelerated format.

This course teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, identifying basic security threats, understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common network issues, connecting to a WAN, configuring EIGRP and OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding wide-area network technologies, and getting familiar with device management and Cisco licensing. Learner will encounter more troubleshooting, and more lab time than with the previous version of CCNAX.


Individuals seeking the Cisco CCNA©_ Routing and Switching certification. The course is also appropriate for pre-sales and post-sales network engineers involved in the installation and support of enterprise branch office networks.

Key Job Tasks:

  • Configure: Implement the identified solution by applying the planned implementation processes using Cisco IOS commands and applications in the correct order to the selected devices and portions of the network.
  • Verify: Use the appropriate show and debug commands and applications to ensure that the solution was correctly implemented and is performing as desired.
  • Troubleshoot: Use the appropriate show and debug commands and applications to identify the cause of basic level network issues and correctly implement a solution that ensures the network is performing as desired.
  • Job roles: Entry Level Network Engineer, Network Administrator, Network Support Technician or Help Desk Technician.

Course Objectives

After completing the course, students will be able to:

  • Describe network fundamentals and build simple LANs
  • Establish Internet connectivity
  • Manage network device security

The CCNAX is a very fast-paced course and it is recommended that you have working networking knowledge prior to attending class. Skills that a learner must have before attending this course are as follows:

  • Basic computer literacy
  • Basic PC operating system navigation skills Basic Internet usage skills
  • Basic IP address knowledge

Here are a few questions to help determine if you should be in CCNAX or take ICND 1 and ICND 2 separately:

  • Do you know what an IP address is?
  • Do you know what the OSI (or TCP/IP) model is?
  • Do you know the difference between a public and a private IP address?
  • What is a dynamic routing protocol?
  • Do you know what a VLAN is, and why we need them?

If you can answer the above questions and are comfortable with the topics you will be a good fit for CCNAX, if the questions are unfamiliar topics for you, we recommend taking ICND 1 and ICND 2 separately as these topics are covered in detail.
