CCNP1A – Implementing Cisco IP Routing
Next Session: Fall
I. COURSE DESCRIPTION
CCNP1 ROUTE part 1 is the fifth course of Cisco Networking
Academy courses. The ROUTE course has been divided into two OEOE
sections: ROUTE part1 (CIS-205) and ROUTE part2 (CIS-206). The
combined content of these courses completes the requirements
for the Cisco Certified Networking Professional ROUTE
certification. CCNP ROUTE part 1 enhances students' skills
necessary for implementing, monitoring, and maintaining routing
services in an enterprise network. Students will learn how to
plan, configure, and verify the implementation of complex
enterprise LAN and WAN routing solutions, using a range of IPv4
Topics covered in the course are EIGRP (Enhanced Interior
Gateway Routing Protocol), Multi-area OSPF (Open Shortest Path
First) routing protocols; and Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP)
redistribution and Path Control. This is a lab-intensive course
providing students with hands-on experience by performing labs
and case studies using Cisco networking devices. Students can
decide to take CIS-205 and CIS-206 in one semester or take
CIS-205 during the Fall semester and CIS-206 during the
following Spring semester.
Cisco Academy’s Semester I, II, III, and IV (version 4) on-line curriculum
Possess a current CCNA certification for any of the following
exams: 640-801, 640-802, 640-811, 640-816.
III. COURSE GOALS
By the end of the course each student will:

advanced capabilities: route summarization, authentication,
virtual links, and modifying link costs and priorities.
Describe how route redistribution, distribute lists, seed
metrics, and modifying administrative distances control route
optimization when implementing networks with multiple routing
Implement route optimization using route maps, distribution
lists, seed metrics, and controlling administrative distances
when redistributing routing information between RIP and OSPF,
EIGRP and OSPF, and between EIGRP and IS-IS.
Identify, analyze, and correct network configuration problems
using logical troubleshooting techniques and the IOS show and
debug commands for EIGRP, OSPF, and multi-protocol networks.
10.Describe how offset lists, Cisco IOS IP Service Level Agreements
(SLA), and Policy-based routing manage path control.
11. Implement basic path control using Cisco IOS IP SLA and

The Self-paced open entry-open exit program requires students to
complete a minimum of 80 hours to meet academic standards.
The 80 hours are divided into a minimum of 48 classroom hours
and 32 hours of self study using online resources. Self-paced
education places additional responsibility on the student for
success. Irregular attendance and lack of participation are key
factors in determining poor student performance. The
greater the amount of time and effort applied by the student,
the greater the opportunity for success, rapid advancement of
knowledge, and advancement through the program. Students will be
expected to manage their attendance with the goal of completing
at least one Cisco Semester during a Cuyamaca College Semester.
Higher goals of completion are very possible and will be
supported. If you have questions about recommended
progress rates, please ask the instructor for guidance.
VII. DROPPING THE
It is the STUDENT’S responsibility to complete the necessary
forms to withdraw from the class. All students that are enrolled
at the end of the semester must be given a grade. Students who
drop but don’t officially withdraw will receive an F.
The assignments for this course can be broken in the following
1. In-class reading/Tests: The
Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) Foundation Learning Guide
will be used for all textbook reading assignments. The materials
should be read before the beginning of class. Students are
responsible for all the terms and concepts in the chapters that
2. Labs: During this course, labs will
be used to guide students through the practical application of
concepts addressed in each chapter and provide an opportunity to
learn advanced skills for configuring Cisco routers and
3. Case Studies: The case
studies are designed to provide a comprehensive application of
the topics covered during CCNP1. Students are required to apply
knowledge and skills learned during each chapter of this course
to develop networks according to a prescribed set of parameters.
IX. EVALUATION & GRADING
Evaluation in this course is designed to give students a maximum
feedback as to their progress and to work as a tool to reinforce
Chapter Exams will be given only after the chapter assignments

X. STUDENTS RESPONSIBILITIES AND EXPECTATIONS
The Cisco instructors want to see our students succeed. We have
used our experience teaching the OEOE classes to write the
following rules to benefit the success of our students.
1. Students are responsible for managing their progress through
To ensure successful completion of the course, please follow
the rules listed below concerning submitting assignments and
taking chapter exams.
Note: Arrangements can be made to deviate from the rules by
submitting a written request with justification and getting
written approval by the course instructor.
2. You should regularly review the assignment schedule and
recommended progress schedule
to be sure you do not fall behind during the semester. We
have noticed that students who fall further than 1(one) chapter
behind the recommended pace have unnecessary
completing the course. If you find yourself falling behind
the recommended pace please contact your instructor for
assistance and/or guidance.
3. Only 5 total lab/packet tracer assignments will be graded by
the instructor each week.
Students who have submitted a written notification of
accelerated completion at the beginning of the semester will be
provided, in writing, the maximum number of assignments that
will be accepted each week for grading.
Note: Managing assignment completion is especially critical at
the end of the semester. Mismanagement could cause completed
assignments not to get graded.
Students progressing at an
accelerated pace will be provided an accelerated assignment
Submit assignments early and often.
4. Courses with study guides: Up to 2 (two) study guides
will be graded for each student per
5. All Assignments must be submitted no later than the end of
week 15 of the semester.
No assignments will be accepted after
Note: no more than 5 assignments that are submitted during week
15 will be graded.
Only 1 chapter exam will be activated for each student per week.
You are allowed to take each chapter exam once. Chapter exams
will be activated a maximum of 2 times. Make sure when you
request that an exam be activated you will be able to complete
the exam during the period requested.
Students who plan to progress through the curriculum at an
accelerated pace will be informed, in writing, the maximum
number of exams that will be allowed to be activated each week.
Note: Students progressing at an accelerated pace will be
