Computer networks enable complex communications between a wide variety of devices (workstation, server etc) 24 by 7. It is important to appreciate how this happens. We teach you both the configuration as well as the troubleshooting aspects.
A hardware and networking course is nothing but the study of how computers communicate with each other over different types of networks and environments.
It is how you set up networking devices such as routers, switches, gateways, bridges, wireless repeaters, access points, firewalls, cables and more so that communication is enabled between computing devices.
On the other hand, troubleshooting is all about how you set things right once something stops working.
Is hardware and networking course good? Yes, no doubt it is the best start you can get to a thriving networking career.
The Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA full form), is an entry level computer networking course and Cisco certification that represents exciting job prospects in the field of computer networking.
Very simply put, it is a fundamental introduction to computer networks promoted by the World's biggest computer networking manufacturer - Cisco. It is one of the best certified networking courses, that promises great pay scales, exciting job opportunities plus international and global recognition.
Is it the same as a standard Diploma in Hardware and Networking course?
No. A highly focused CCNA course is very different - it is practical and provides you job ready computer networking skills. If you learn from a top-rated Cisco CCNA institute, complex topics such as network engineering and network maintenance will also be taught to you.
Is a CCNA worth it? Well, nothing comes close.
Cisco is a world-renowned Computer networking company that manufactures high-end, enterprise grade, computer network components (routers, switches and more). They spend billions of dollars on research and development every year to stay on top of the information technology chain.
Getting recognized by Cisco through their official exam is one of the best ways to showcase your talent and career seriousness to prospective employers.
Interestingly, some of our best student have been from completely unrelated streams such as Commerce & Arts. It is not difficult but rather requires you to work hard. We will take care of the rest.
So, who’s to say? If you love understanding how the internet works and what holds it all together and makes it tick, jump right in and reap the benefits of learning Cisco courses.
Is the CCNA difficult to learn? Thats a question we get very often.
We believe nothing is difficult with the right guidance and handholding. A beginner with no prior knowledge can undertake this short course to learn networking fundamentals from scratch that will boost their career prospects.
Why is the CCNA certification in high demand?
Even though the CCNA certification is only an entry-level certification, the certification will test you to the max. There are massive benefits for the certification holder:
It is an extremely good course. The scope is immense and limitless. The CCNA could turn out to be your life changing, great career option.
It is not an ordinary hardware networking course. The CCNA is a certification Cisco highly recommends to everyone starting out in the world of computer networking. Many of these jobs may entail specialized travel and great pay too.
When it comes to the CCNA, Cisco ensures a well-rounded CCNA syllabus. It covers a gamut of topics and everything to know about a computer network.

Vedasys does provide you online CCNA training too!
We always recommend that your first course always be a classroom based one, where you can get time not only the faculty but also work on live Cisco networking hardware devices. This helps you learn everything practically.
However due to distance and work constraints, some of you may not find enough time to fit our Cisco training into an already tight schedule.

Below CCNA courses specializations are available till Feb 24th, 2020. Most of the Cisco certification track options shown below will undergo drastic changes after this date.
The syllabus is expected to be massively upgraded and the current exam number CCNA 200-125 will change to CCNA 200-301.
There will be no 100-105 ICND1 and 200-105 ICND2 or CCENT exams anymore after this. (ICND stands for Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices).
If you are planning to give your official exams soon, we recommend the CCNA routing & switching path (composite exam 200-125) since it covers key topics and acts as a stepping stone to understand other specializations better.
CCNA R&S is a fundamental Associate level Cisco certification that covers routing and switching aspects thoroughly.
While CCNA Security is an associate level Cisco certification that purely focuses on networking security vertical.
Also, another common concern is whether someone can undertake CCNA security without CCNA R&S?
No. In order to do CCNA Security, you must have an officially valid CCNA R&S Certification.
The current version of CCNA Security is 3.0 with exam number 210 - 260 IINS. The CCNA security syllabus is vast and covers the latest aspects of security and cyber safety. It is a must do certification for anyone aspiring to be an Information Security Analyst or Security Engineer.
CCNP (Cisco Certified Networking Professional) and CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) are great networking courses that represent an advanced level, and lead you onto the path of becoming a true networking expert.
The CCNP currently has 3 papers: CCNP ROUTE, CCNP SWITCH & CCNP TSHOOT. The CCIE is a different beast altogether and requires top level of expertise, lab training and knowledge to clear an extremely difficult exam.
The CCNA Certifications get you started on this journey of learning and as such represent the first step to be undertaken by all aspirants.
Official exam fees for all Cisco courses are strongly governed by Cisco.
CCNA Certification fees for Routing and Switching track is presently $325. Approximately INR 22,750 (1 USD=70 INR).
If you want to earn your CCNA Certification by appearing for ICND1 100-105 and ICND2 200-105 Exams, then it will cost you a total of $330 ($165 each).
Regarding CCNP exam fees, each of the CCNP exams (ROUTE, SWITCH, TSHOOT) will cost you $300, hence total latest exam fee of CCNP R&S certification exams is $900 overall.
Pearson VUE is the authorized Cisco test delivery partner where you will have to schedule an exam and then appear at the said date and time. We can help direct you to the nearest Pearson VUE testing centers with guidance that will never fail you. You will have to be committed to the subject, that's all we ask of you.
Our CCNA course fees covers the training part.
We undertake the responsibility to prepare you for the tough certification road ahead. The certification exams will be conducted by an authorized Pearson Vue center only, and the official fees collected by them shall be directly paid to Cisco on your behalf. This will be a separate cost.
If you want to clear CCNA R&S with a single exam, you should look at to attempt the 200-125 while someone who likes to take it slow will be attempting the CCENT ICND 1 (100-105) followed by the CCENT ICND 2 (200-105) to complete their CCNA certification requirements.
After Feb 24, 2020 the CCNA exam curriculum will undergo drastic improvements - new CCNA code will be 200-301.
You have 90 minutes to answer between 50 - 60 questions (varies by candidate) and the score to pass is 825 out of a possible 1000 i.e. 85%
In the official CCNA Certification (200-125) exam, approximately 50-60 CCNA exam questions are to be answered (the number varies from candidate to candidate), inside of a maximum of 90 minutes.
Mostly the number of questions averages around 55.
What types of Cisco CCNA exam questions can you expect?
The CCNA test is computer based and is not written. It usually associated with and has a mix of different types of questions:
No. It is great that there are no negative marks for a wrong answer. This is the main reason why we recommend you never leave any questions unanswered. You should attempt everything.
Cisco's official Certification Tracking System helps you do just that. Below link requires you to enter your valid Cisco.com ID:https://cisco.pearsoncred.com
The above link helps provides access to third parties or employers to verify your certifications as well.
Is there any certification expiration? Yes, there is. Your official CCNA certification is valid for 3 years.
Exams can be taken at a date and time of your choice through prior registration with an authorized Pearson Vue center.
Purely depends on your background and effort being put in.
Some people use CCNA dumps to clear the exam with about 10 hours preparation only while experienced network engineers may take about 15 days.
For the most of you, we recommend the tried and testing approach of learning by doing and that could take you anywhere between 35 - 40 days - depending on the amount of time you are able to put in.
It is best not to worry about the duration of time required as long as you are regular and disciplined. Vedasys provides a solid training course to help you in this endeavour.
We do not believe that apart from what is covered in our course, you do need any other book to learn CCNA in depth. Some people find CCNA book pdf versions to be very helpful for learning on the go.
As an official recommendation, we stand by "CCNA routing and switching study guide" by Todd Lammle.
Coupled with a decent Bachelor's degree from any stream (Computer science or Computer Engineering or even Electrical engineering etc is not mandatory), the CCNA course is a good career choice and opens up a multitude of employment options.
Upon course completion, you are eligible to apply for below networking related openings:
CCNA jobs for freshers stipulate that they be technically sound. Completing the official Cisco certification would be desirable but by no means mandatory.
All said and done, a CCNA resume will always give you an unfair advantage for employment opportunities in this field.
The CCNA is a vast subject and interviews for related positions are not easy to clear with just reading a few questions and answers.
We are in the process of compiling top CCNA interview questions and answers, meantime please feel free to get in touch with our faculty for guidance on any difficult topics and concepts.
CCNA certification salary for candidates with 0-2 yrs experience, ranges from INR 2-3 lacs per year while for CCNP certified graduates the prospects improve hugely as you can command anything between 3-5 lacs per annum.

In Dubai, depending on core competency (how good you are at your CCNA basics) and experience, varies from 5,000 AED to 20,000 AED per month.
In the US, the average salary for a female CCNA ranges from $55,166-$90,642, while the average male salary falls between $53,514-$89,797.

Subnetting used to make me cry earlier and now I ride it like a horse! In one hour! Incredible technique to subnet within 10 seconds just blew me away.

Passed my dreaded CCNA exam today, perfect score 1000/1000! Thanks team, wouldn't have cleared this without your help.
- Martin Lasek
The ultimate highlight of this CCNA course in Goa was the fact that we were allowed to practice away on those Cisco L2 and L3 switches not to mention the big bad routers with 15.x IOS inside them. All other institutes turned me away or promised me practice on Cisco Packet Simulator only. My confidence is through the roof as I prepare my resume for upcoming interviews!
- Sharuf Ahmed
I had absolutely no background in Computer networking so was not very confident to begin with. But the way they drew me into the CCNA course and helped me master difficult concepts just blew me away. Professor Dwayne, thanks.

The quality of instruction was par-excellence but what really got to me was the encouragement & passion they sprinkle onto each session! Learnt tons about teaching.
