Welcome to CCNA 200-301 from Zero. This is all you need to become successfully certified at Cisco CCNA. Here are some things you need to know before you start. After this we start with everything until you become a network expert. CCNA Online Course, Test and Exams.

CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) is one of the most popular IT certificates on the market. It is especially welcomed by employers in Poland and abroad. The certificate confirms specialist technical knowledge and practical skills in the installation, configuration and management of medium size ICT networks. The document is recognized all over the world. The basic certificate for every network operator. Highly recommended for all people connected with the IT industry.

The new CCNA 200-301

We have a lot of changes in certification, so let’s start with what was removed from the exam.

  • The basics of the network: OSI Model
  • LAN Switching -VTP, Stack
  • Routing: EIGRP, RIPv2, OSPFv3, Inter-VLAN routing
  • WAN technologies – PPP, MLPP, PPPoE, GRE, BGP

It is also worth noting that there is not a single word about troubleshooting in the new list of subjects for the exam. Each topic is described at most as Configure and verify. I conclude that if there are more topics, they will be treated slightly smoother.

The most important novelties include three new large sections:

  • Basics of the wifi network
  • Security fundamentals and next-gen firewalls and IPSs
  • Automation and SDN
