Why CCNA Routing and Switching?
It is a first step for most novices in the networking industry.
One of the most sought-after credentials in the tech industry, CCNA Routing and Switching certification is undoubtedly Cisco’s most popular certification. And Cisco being the major player in the networking and networking security field has great leverage in existing and new technologies.
CCNA Routing and Switching (R&S) is one the most esteemed certifications for someone, who is willing to pursue their career in IT Networking/Cloud / Security/ Wireless /Storage or looking to upskill from System to networking as well.
The reason is evident it provides the foundation in IT networking, and without a solid foundation, no one can build a 100-storey building.
Most of the delegates either try self-study, videos or go to an institute where the instructors have no consultancy background, thus leaving key skill gaps and embarrassment in front of prospective employers during an interview even with the basic concepts.
Most successful network engineers embark on their networking careers with achieving the CCNA certified status. With this certification, you will be certified by the Networking Leader.
Cisco pioneered most routing and switching technologies — and continues to lead the way with the greatest market share and largest installed base in the industry.

Why Join our CCNA Routing and Switching training course
Cisco Certified Networking Associate CCNA Routing and Switching certification is the single most popular networking certification and passing the exam requires more than just reading the books or watching some prerecorded videos.
Experience Certified NOT Paper Certified
Passing the exam requires a thorough and deep understanding of networking fundamentals and network-security technologies that are covered in the CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum.
With the latest rendition of the CCNA Routing and Switching 200-125 curriculum, Cisco has removed a lot of legacy technologies such as Frame Relay. And has introduced some much-needed changes to steer the exam away from topics covered in other specialist CCNA certifications (e.g. Wireless, Security) and turned the focus back onto the core routing and switching technologies.
They have also brought in an introduction into Software Defined Networking (SDN), BGP, Quality of Service (QoS) and Cloud networking which was previously lacking badly.
Also included is the understanding the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points, along with additional focus on IPv6 and basic network security.
