AHA-VTS: Cisco CCNA Lab F.L.I.C.

Welcome to AHA-VTS dot com© CCNA Lab F.L.I.C.©. This lab is designed to provide assistance in your understanding for Cisco routers and switches. The lab is geared toward Beginners to the world of networking to Intermediate Technicians who have worked in the IT/Networking field for a minimum of 2 to 2½ years with hands on experience.

The topics covered are what you might except on the CCNA exam. Although Cisco’s CCNA exam is not Lab orientated; some questions assume that you have been on actual devices – whether virtually, remotely, or physically.

This CCNA Lab F.L.I.C.© consists of 5 to 6 sections, each varies in time from about 30 – 45mins, based on your knowledge of the subject and how fast you can type. Ultimately, the lab is designed to take between 5 to 8 hours in total time.

The syllabus consists of:

— Pre-Lab

— Layer 2 – Switching

— Layer 3 – IP addressing and Routing

— Security

— Miscellaneous
