The Cisco CCDA certification is for network design engineers, technicians, and support engineers, who require a basic understanding of network design fundamentals. The CCDA curriculum focuses on but is not limited to designing basic campus, data center, security, voice, and wireless networks.

Enterprise environments require networks designed for performance, availability, and scalability with the flexibility to meet rapidly evolving demands. To meet these challenges head on, skilled IT professionals are needed with up-to-date, fundamental network design skills. For network design engineers, system engineers, and sales engineers and individuals looking to build and validate Cisco network design fundamental knowledge the Cisco CCDA certification program focuses on design methodologies and objectives, addressing and routing protocols, and network expansion considerations within basic campus, data center, security, voice, and wireless networks.


A valid CCENT or a valid CCNA Routing and Switching or any CCIE certification can act as a prerequisite.

Cisco CCDA®

Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (200-310 DESGN) 3

This course requires a foundation or apprentice knowledge of network design for Cisco enterprise network architectures. CCDA certified professionals can design routed and switched network infrastructures and services involving LAN/WAN technologies for SMB or basic enterprise campus and branch networks. In addition to general approaches and technologies for network design, this course promotes Cisco solutions in designing and implementing scalable internetworks. Among specific goals is the promotion of the modular approach to network design.

Upon completing this course, you will be able to meet these objectives:

  • Describe and apply network design methodologies
  • Describe and apply network design concepts of modularity and hierarchy
  • Design a resilient and scalable Campus network
  • Design a resilient and scalable connectivity between parts of your Enterprise network
  • Design connectivity to the Internet and internal routing for your network
  • Integrate collaboration and wireless infrastructure into your core network
  • Create scalable IPv4 and IPv6 addressing
  • Describe what software defined networks are and describe example solutions


It is strongly recommended, but not required, that students have the following knowledge and skills:

  • A Cisco CCNA certification and practical experience with deploying and operating networks based on Cisco network devices and Cisco IOS software
  • BCMSN level knowledge of wireless and QoS topics
  • Complete the Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN) course
