ICND1 - Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1

Here's what you will get

The CCENT exam is a standalone certification from Cisco with the exam code 640-822. Cisco's Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1(ICND1) is the first half of the CCNA Certification or stands alone as the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT) 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, wireless network, and security. The Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) certification is the first stage of Cisco's certification system. The CCENT certification is a primary step to Associate level or directly with CCNA and CCDA certifications. While the CCENT covers basic networking knowledge; it does not get involved with the more intricate technical aspects of the Cisco routing and switching and network design. The certification does validate the skills essential for entry-level network support positions.
