    Year P/T

Why take this course?

The Cisco Certifed Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) qualification validates the ability to install, operate and troubleshoot a small enterprise branch network, including basic network security. With a CCENT, a 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, initial router configuration, LAN switching and Ethernet basics, VLAN deployment, subnetting, configuration and integration of IPv6 addressing, DHCP, NAT and basic device access security concepts. CCENT is a standalone entry level qualification. It is recommended as a pre-requisite to study the various CCNA specialisations including CCNA Routing and Switching, which covers medium size enterprise branch networks with more complex connections

What will I experience?

Students will complete a mid-term and final assessment. This takes the form of two multiple choice on-line exams, a short project and two skills test.

In addition students will take weekly assessments to check their understanding of each topic.

Students are recommended to take the associated professional exam at a date of their choosing, generally over the summer after completion of the course provided by VUE for a seperate fee of approx. €125

What opportunities might it lead to?

Having your CCENT means you have what it takes to manage a small, enterprise branch network. A CCENT is your first step toward CCNA certification and will help you stand out from the crowd in entry-level positions. Subject to the satisfactory completion of the above course or having a valid CCENT students may progress onto a Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching course.

Additional Information

This requires the completion of the Associated Certification Exam 100-101 ICND 1 provided by VUE (separate fee of approx €125)
