The CCNA certification validates the skills necessary to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size networks with connections to LAN devices and remote sites. The exam consists of several networking protocols including Internet Protocol (IP), Ethernet, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) and Routing Information Protocol (RIP, RIPv2). Other topics, such as basic mitigation of security threats, VLANs, Network Address Translation, and Access Control Lists (ACLs), are also included.
Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certifications are valid for three years.
