This is an advanced course on Cisco switching configuration. Upon completion of this course students will be able to configure and optimize a switched infrastructure using VLANS, STP, RSTP, MSTP, and HSRP. Additionally, students will be able to secure this switched infrastructure.

Live training will focus on content within Modules 2-7. Students are expected to complete Module 1 by using the recorded training format. This recorded-only training section can be reviewed within the Encore format’s thorough coverage or your Live Session Homework (Live Session + Live Session Homework or Encore required for completion). This allows the Live sessions to focus on the most challenging and critical material. Additionally, DHCP coverage, Module 2 Lessons 3 and 4, will be taught following the completion of Module 3 so that it more logically flows within the content.
Students attending this course should have a solid foundation in routing fundamentals, Cisco IOS basics, and Cisco routing basics. Attending the ICND1 and ICND2 classes or having the CCNA certification will fulfill these expectations.
This course offers the official training for the Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks 2.0 certification exam which is a component exam for the CCNP and CCDP certifications. Passing this exam will also refresh CCNA certification, which expires after three years.
