CCNA Certification Path

CCNA Certifiacate Path

There are two ways to attain the certificate, either going for a composite type (CCNA)
or separately by passing CCENT or ICND1 first then by passing ICND2.

Both the ways are having its own Pros and Cons. Let me explain the terminologies first, then will dig deeper into each one of the module.

CCENT® Certification

Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) validates the ability to install,
operate and troubleshoot a small enterprise branch network, including basic network security.
With a CCENT, network professional demonstrates the skills required for entry-level network support
positions - the starting point for many successful careers in networking.
The curriculum covers networking fundamentals, WAN technologies, basic security and wireless concepts, routing
and switching fundamentals, and configuring simple networks. CCENT is the first step toward achieving CCNA,
which covers medium size enterprise branch networks with more complex connections.
There is no prerequisite for this certification.

CCENT Exams & Recommended Training
Required Exam(s)

Recommended Training
640-822 ICND1 Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 (ICND1)

CCENT certifications are valid for three years. To recertify,
pass ONE of the following exams before the certification expiration date:

* Pass the current ICND1 exam, or
* Pass the current ICND2 exam , or
* Pass the current CCNA exam, or
* Pass the current CCDA exam, or
* Pass any current CCNA Concentration exam (wireless, or security, or voice, or SP Ops), or
* Pass any current 642-XXX professional level exam, or
* Pass any current Cisco Specialist exam (excluding Sales Specialist exams or
MeetingPlace Specialist exams or Implementing Cisco Telepresence Installations [ITI] exams), or
* Pass any current CCIE Written Exam, or
* Pass the current CCDE Written Exam OR current CCDE Practical Exam, or
* Pass the Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) interview AND the CCAr board review to extend
lower certifications


Another way is to Pass CCNA composite at one shot.

CCNA Certification

Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA®) validates the ability to install,
configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size route and switched networks,
including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN.
CCNA curriculum includes basic mitigation of security threats, introduction to wireless networking
concepts and terminology, and performance-based skills. This new curriculum also includes
(but is not limited to) the use of these protocols: IP, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP),
Serial Line Interface Protocol Frame Relay, Routing Information Protocol Version 2 (RIPv2),VLANs,
Ethernet, access control lists (ACLs)
