Training & Certifications


SWITCH v2.0, 5 day ILT, includes major updates and follows an updated blueprint. However, note that this course does not cover all items listed on the blueprint. Some older topics have been removed or simplified, while several new IPv6 routing topics have been added. Course content has been adapted to Cisco IOS Software Release 15 and technically updated. Course also introduces new type of labs, called discovery labs. Discovery labs are instructor guided lab through which student explores new topics in an interactive way. All labs are developed only as virtual labs. To get the full course experience, you should cover everything, including Introduction, Discovery labs, Summary, and Module Self-Check.


At the end of the program, the participants will be able to :

  1. Describe the hierarchical campus structure, basic switch operation, use of SDM templates, PoE, and LLDP
  2. Implement VLANs, trunks, explain VTP, implement DHCP in IPv4 and IPv6 environment, and configure port aggregation
  3. Implement and optimize STP mechanism that best suits your network - PVSTP+, RPVSTP+, or MSTP
  4. Configure routing on a multilayer switch
  5. Configure NTP, SNMP, IP SLA, port mirroring, and verify StackWise and VSS operation
  6. Implement First Hop redundancy in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  7. Secure campus network according to recommended practices

Network Engineers, Network Operations Center (NOC) Technical Support Personnel, Help Desk Technicians, Network professionals.


This program is 5 days of intensive training class.


The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this Curriculum are as follows:

  1. Describing network fundamentals
  2. Establishing Internet and WAN connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6)
  3. Managing network device security
  4. Operating a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree
  5. Troubleshooting IP connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6)
  6. Configuring and troubleshooting EIGRP and OSPF (IPv4 and IPv6)
  7. Configuring devices for SNMP, Syslog, and NetFlow access

It is highly recommended that this course be taken after the following Cisco courses:

  • • Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices v2.0, Part 1 (ICND1 v2.0) and Part 2 (ICND2 v2.0)
  • • Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated version 2.0 (CCNAX v2.0)

At the end of the program, the participants will be assessed with 2 hours of Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH) v2.0 Exam.


Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH) v2.0 Completion Certification will be awarded upon successfully passing the exam from Cisco. This certification is a pathway towards getting CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional) Certification. CCNP Certification is awarded after completion of Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) v2.0, Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH) v2.0, and Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks (TSHOOT) v2.0.
