CCNA R&S certification validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks. CCNA certified professionals have the knowledge and skills to make connections to remote sites via a WAN, and mitigate basic security threats. CCNA R&S training covers (but is not limited to) the use of these  topics: IOS, IPv6, IPv4, OSPF, Cisco Licensing,  Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Serial Line Interfaces,  Frame Relay interfaces VLANs, Ethernet, VLSM, and basic traffic filtering.
