Course code   CICND2


The Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (CICND2) v2.0 course provides entry-level network administrators, network support and helpdesk technicians with the knowledge and skills needed to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot a small enterprise network. ICND2 v2.0 focuses on understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common networking issues, configuring EIGRP and multiarea OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding WAN technologies, and becoming familiar with device management and Cisco licensing. The learner will encounter more troubleshooting and more lab time than with the previous version of ICND2.

Target Audience

Individuals seeking the Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification. The course is also appropriate for pre- 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 Software 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 that the network is performing as desired.

–     Job roles: Entry-level network engineer, network administrator, network support technician, or help desk technician.


This course is part of the following Certifications:

–     Cisco Certified Network Associate Routing and Switching (CCNA)

–     CCIE Voice (CCIEV Voice)


The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this course are as follows:

–     Understand network fundamentals

–     Implement local area networks

–     Implement Internet connectivity

–     Manage network device security

–     Implement WAN connectivity
