CCNA 1: Introduction to Networks (ITN)

This course introduces the architectures, models, protocols, and networking elements that connect users, devices, applications and data through the internet and across modern computer networks - including IP addressing and Ethernet fundamentals. By the end of the course, students can build simple local area networks (LANs) that integrate IP addressing schemes, foundational network security, and perform basic configurations for routers and switches.




Day 1

Networking Today 

Explain the advances in modern network technologies. 

Basic Switch and End Device Configuration 

Implement initial settings including passwords, IP addressing, and default gateway parameters on a network switch and end devices. 

Protocols and Models 

Explain how network protocols enable devices to access local and remote network resources. 

Day 2

Physical Layer 

Explain how physical layer protocols, services, and network media support communications across data networks. 

Number Systems 

Calculate numbers between decimal, binary, and hexadecimal systems. 

Data Link Layer 

Explain how media access control in the data link layer supports communication across networks. 

Ethernet Switching 

Explain how Ethernet operates in a switched network. 

Day 3

Network Layer 

Explain how routers use network layer protocols and services to enable end-to-end connectivity. 

Address Resolution 

Explain how ARP and ND enable communication on a network. 

Basic Router Configuration 

Implement initial settings on a router and end devices. 

IPv4 Addressing 

Calculate an IPv4 subnetting scheme to efficiently segment a network. 

Day 4

IPv6 Addressing 

Implement an IPv6 addressing scheme. 


Use various tools to test network connectivity. 

Transport Layer 

Compare the operations of transport layer protocols in supporting end-to-end communication. 

Application Layer 

Explain the operation of application layer protocols in providing support to end-user applications. 

Network Security Fundamentals 

Configure switches and routers with device hardening features to enhance security. 

Day 5

Build a Small Network 

Implement a network design for a small network to include a router, a switch, and end devices.

Troubleshoot EtherChannel on switched links. 


Implement DHCPv4 to operate across multiple LANs. 

Day 3

SLAAC and DHCPv6 Concepts 

Configure dynamic address allocation in IPv6 networks. 

FHRP Concepts 

Explain how FHRPs provide default gateway services in a redundant network. 

LAN Security Concepts 

Explain how vulnerabilities compromise LAN security. 

Switch Security Configuration 

Implement switch security to mitigate LAN attacks. 

Day 4

WLAN Concepts 

Explain how WLANs enable network connectivity. 

WLAN Configuration 

Implement a WLAN using a wireless router and WLC. 

Routing Concepts 

Explain how routers use information in packets to make forwarding decisions. 

IP Static Routing 

Configure IPv4 and IPv6 static routes. 

Day 5

Troubleshoot Static and Default Routes

Troubleshoot static and default route configurations.
