The Cisco Certified Network Associate v1.0 (CCNA 200-301) exam is a 120-minute exam associated with the CCNA certification. This exam tests a candidate’s knowledge and skills related to network fundamentals, network access, IP connectivity, IP services, security fundamentals, and automation and programmability. The course, Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions (CCNA), helps candidates prepare for this exam.


  • This exam tests your knowledge and skills related to:

    • Network fundamentals
    • Network access
    • IP connectivity
    • IP services
    • Security fundamentals
    • Automation and programmability


No formal prerequisites but one or more years of experience implementing and administering Cisco solutions is recommended.

The CCNA exam is the foundation exam of the Cisco certification paths. This means that you do not need to have any certifications or passed any exams before you can sit for the CCNA exam. There are few basic restrictions and prerequisites that one should be aware of before attempting to take the exam.
