The CCNA course focuses on Networking which includes how to plan, create, manage, and troubleshoot a network. CCNA covers the basic knowledge of IP protocols, LAN Switching TechnologiesWAN Technologies, Routing Technologies, and other concepts. CCNA is globally accepted certification and one can expect better career prospects after achieving the certification.

In CCNA exam there will be around 50–60 questions with a time span of 90 minutes. The question types include multiple-choice questions, drag and drop type questions, and simulations. CCNA exam is available in two languages like English and Japanese.
