What is ICND?

ICND is the acronym for "Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices" which refers to a set of IT exams issued by Cisco Systems.

There are two Cisco exams called ICND1 and ICND2 which are geared towards achieving the CCNA "Cisco Certified Network Associate" certification.

When you pass the ICND1 you become CCENT "Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician" certified, this is Cisco's entry-level computer networking certification.

You then go on to study the ICND2 syllabus, which will earn you the CCNA cert when you pass the ICND2 exam.


You could study the whole CCNA syllabus and take one composite CCNA exam.

To help you decide which pathway is best for you read our blog post "CCNA or CCENT".
