The 640-802 Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is a composite exam associated with the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification.
The certification is targeted at network professionals, system administrators and technicians involved with setting up and troubleshooting networks. The exam covers network technologies, installation and configuration, media and topologies, OSI and TCP/IP models, VLAN, wireless LAN, and security.
To take the 640-802 exam, candidates are required to prepare for the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 (640-822) v1.0 and the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 (640-816) v1.0 courses. The 640-802 exam will be the single exam option for becoming CCNA. Alternatively, passing ICND1 and ICND2 will provide you the CCNA certification. However, passing ICND1 will provide a separate certification named Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT).
