Nick Payton passes the Cisco CCNA w/ 902 out of 1000 which is an EXCELLENT score! - This is a big win for both Nick personally and a perfect certification to obtain for the role he fills here at DeKalb Central Schools. The exam details tell the story for both parties!

The CCNA is the composite exam associated with the Cisco Certified Network Associate certification. This exam tests a candidate's knowledge and skills required to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium size enterprise branch network. The topics include connecting to a WAN; implementing network security; network types; network media; routing and switching fundamentals; the TCP/IP and OSI models; IP addressing; WAN technologies; operating and configuring IOS devices; extending switched networks with VLANs; determining IP routes; managing IP traffic with access lists; establishing point-to-point connections; and establishing Frame Relay connections.
