Cisco redesigns CCNA routing and switching certification
Posted on 27 March 2013.
Cisco today announced a redesign of the Cisco associate-level certification programs and the evolution of the CCNA certification to CCNA Routing and Switching certification.

The CCNA Routing and Switching refresh aligns certification and training curricula with evolving industry job roles and provides the skills that networking professionals need to successfully manage cutting-edge network solutions.

The redesign enables the associate-level concentration certifications such as CCNA Routing and Switching, CCNA Voice, CCNA Security, CCNA Wireless, CCNA SP Operations and CCDA to better align with the industry job roles of today and the future.

Specifically for the CCENT and CCNA Routing and Switching certifications, Cisco has redesigned the training curriculum for the ICND1, ICND2 and CCNAX exams and has introduced new exams for ICND1, ICND2 and CCNA Composite. The updates include comprehensive troubleshooting, technologies such as IPv6, and updated software on Cisco routers and switches.

With the associate-level program redesign, candidates now need to pass only two exams to achieve advanced technology certifications in an accelerated manner with the right job skills. These certifications include:
  • CCNA Routing and Switching
  • CCNA Security
  • CCNA Voice
  • CCNA Wireless
  • CCNA SP Operations.
The following certifications currently require two exams:
  • CCNA Data Center
  • CCNA Video
  • CCNA Service Provider
  • CCNA SP Operations.
For CCDA certification, a valid CCENT certification will be a prerequisite beginning October 1, 2013. Basic knowledge of routing and switching is becoming increasingly essential to meet the industry job role requirements of a CCDA.
