The Cisco CCNA R&S: ICND2 v3 course provides students with the key skills needed to successfully install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot a small enterprise network.

The ICND2 v3 course focuses on redundant topologies, troubleshooting common networking issues, configuring EIGRP and multiarea OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding WAN technologies, and becoming familiar with device management and Cisco licensing.

Course Instructor: Raymond Lacoste
