Skill Level: Foundation                          Status: Active

Low Cost: $150 (shortest track)               

Summary:
For individuals who install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks, including implementation and verification of connections to remote sites in a WAN. This includes basic mitigation of security threats, introduction to wireless networking concepts and terminology, and performance-based skills. Note: On March 26, 2013, Cisco renamed the CCNA certification to CCNA Routing & Switching as part of a program redesign. Previously this was simply known as the CCNA.

Initial Requirements:
You must pass the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) exam ($295) or pass both the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 exam ($150) and the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 exam ($150). Training is available but not required.

The requirements under the new system announced in March 2013 are essentially the same:
If you already hold the Cisco CCENT certification (which means you passed the exam for ICND1), pass the ICND2 exam ($150). Otherwise, pass the CCNA composite exam ($295), which covers both ICND1 and ICND2.

There are additional CCNA certifications available for specialized tracks such as wireless, data center, and security. For the full list of current CCNA titles, follow the "See all Cisco Certifications" link near the bottom of this page.

Continuing Requirements:
Certification is valid for three years. Generally you can recertify by passing a specified exam or earning a higher-level certification, but check Cisco's website for the current details as they change from time to time.
