New CCNA R&S 6.0 Bridging Course

We at the Cisco Networking Academy are pleased to offer the CCNA R&S 6.0 Bridging Course, which, taught together with the CCNA R&S 5.X curriculum, is in full alignment with the CCNA R&S Certification on day one of its release.

Teaching networking fundamentals is an important objective for us, and our CCNA curriculum covers many topics beyond certification. However, staying aligned with the latest certification is very much our priority too. Effective today, 17 May 2016, all academies and instructors have access to the English version of the CCNA Routing and Switching 6.0 Bridging Course.

End-of-Life Dates for Old Certification Exams

If you plan to take the certification exam, we recommend taking the old certification exam before August 20, 2016 – it is easier. If you prefer to take the new exam, then please be aware that you must take the new certification exam on or after August 20.

The old Certification Exams will be available for at least 90 days as noted in the table below:
