Learning Outcomes

Students learn key switching and routing concepts. They can perform basic network configuration and troubleshooting, identify and mitigate LAN security threats, and configure and secure a basic WLAN.

You'll learn these core skills:

- Work with routers, switches and wireless devices to configure and troubleshoot VLANs, Wireless LANs and Inter-VLAN routing
- Configure and troubleshoot redundancy on a switched network using STP and EtherChannel
- Develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills using real equipment and Cisco Packet Tracer
- Explain how to support available and reliable networks using dynamic addressing and first-hop redundancy protocols

Student's Workload

135 h, which contains 50 h of scheduled contact studies.

Prerequisites / Recommended Optional Courses

Local Area Networks, Operating Systems and Domain Services.


These course materials will assist you in developing the skills necessary to do the following:

Configure devices using security best practices.
Explain how Layer 2 switches forward data.
Implement VLANs and trunking in a switched network.
Troubleshoot inter-VLAN routing on Layer 3 devices.
Explain how STP enables redundancy in a layer 2 network.
Troubleshoot EtherChannel on switched networks.
Implement DHCPv4 to operate across multiple LANs.
Configure dynamic address allocation in IPv6 networks.
Explain how FHRPs provide default gateway services in a redundant network.
Explain how vulnerabilities compromise LAN security.
