Cisco Certified DevNet Associate 200-901 Course overview
Octa Networks is the pioneer in the Cisco Certification training services in Mumbai India. Keeping in line with their track record of providing the best Cisco training services across the certification program, Octa Networks is presenting Cisco Certified DevNet Associate training
Software and networking are growing more and more interconnected every day. World of networking infrastructure engineers and the world of software developers have started overlapping to a great extent. Rightfully so, Cisco is moving in the direction of bridging the gap between the networking infrastructure engineers and the software application developers. Automation (Software-defined infrastructure programmability), New expectations for speed, scale and security along with increased performance, reliability and security (AI/ML & Business Insights) are the hallmarks of the modern Networking Infrastructure requirements. Software developers have to improve the speed of development and offer Cloud services which are quick and easy. Internet of things (connectivity) is going to increase the value of edge computing and analytics which in turn is supported by enhanced developer tools, APIs and Open Source technologies. Networking engineers are not expected to be software developers but they are expected to be able to understand the elements of programming and their expectations at least.
In keeping with the tradition of providing leadership in aligning technological advancement with the business needs, Cisco is driving the industry towards ‘Unleashing the full capabilities of the new network’ for which leveraging the New Network, Networking, and the Software Skills are the key elements.
Cisco certification program is providing leadership in shepherding the networking world by building an ecosystem of trained professionals who can develop software on top of Cisco platforms without losing the agility, relevance, flexibility, integrity, and brand. DevNet (CCDA Cisco Certified DevNet Associate) is the move in this direction. Necessary changes are being made in the CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE certification programs to reflect these objectives while launching new certifications like CCDA, CCDP, and CCDE.
CISCO’s modular CCDA training program is aimed at catering to various technological needs and demands of the individuals and the industry. CCDA certification program is designed to focus on knowledge and skills in developing and maintaining applications built on Cisco platforms. The CCDA certification covers the fundamentals of software development and design for Cisco platforms. The CCDA certification is the first step towards preparing yourselves for professional-level job roles like software developers, DevOps engineers, automation specialists are expected to embrace the potential of applications, automation, and infrastructure for the network, Internet of Things (IoT), DevOps, and Webex.
Octa Networks is launching CCDA Bootcamp and focused training facilities across India and abroad. We are proud of our track record of guiding and coaching our students to achieve their existing CCNA/CCNP and CCIE certifications. We provide the best CCNA, CCNP, CCDP Training in Mumbai. We will strive to keep up the good work we are doing as the best CCDA, CCDP training institute in India.

Frequently Asked Question
You need to pass exam 200-901 DEVASC DevNet certification program to achieve your CCDA certificate.
DevNet certification consists of CCDA, CCDP and CCDE certifications. These are Associate, Professional and Expert level certifications. Once you clear CCDA which is associate level certificate, you can plan your next certification in the form of CCDP and soon to be launched CCDE.
DevNet certification program is a subset of current certification program. DevNet certification program is intended to validate software programming, application development, DevOps and Automation. The DevNet certifications are unique and distinct in their subject matter which are complementary with the existing certification program.
Exams for the CCDA (Cisco Certified DevNet Associate), Cisco Certified DevNet Specialist and CCDP (Cisco Certified DevNet Professional) will be available on February 24th 2020.
Having CCNA or any other certificate is not necessary before appearing for the CCDA exam. You can directly appear for the (200-901 DEVASC) exam provided necessary concepts and knowledge of the exam topics are understood clearly.
The duration of course depends on the batch you select. Regular (Mon – Fri) classroom training spans over the period of 4 weeks or 4 Hours / Days. Weekend (Sat – Sun) classroom training takes 2 Months or 6 Hours/Day. You can choose online/offline training mode and check out the schedule and fees accordingly.
As per the existing procedure for certification program, printed CCDA Certification should take 6-8 weeks to reach you by mail. Check the status of your certificate in your Certification Tracking System. Date with a “Mailed” status implies the dispatch of your certificate on that date. No status found or 8 weeks are over, register a case with Certification & Communities Online Support team at www.cisco.com/go/certsupport.
Like CCNA/CCNP certifications Cisco press books, latest workbooks prepared & revised regularly by experts is the study material for CCDA training.
You may earn between 2,00,000 – 3,00,000 INR which may increase significantly with work experience, improved hands-on skills and other related factors.
Yes. The CCDA online training batches will be made available on both weekdays as well as weekends in morning and evening sessions.
We provide lab training facility in Asia with 24×7 Lab access with rack and lab administrator guide. We offer great value for money to all our candidates through Personality development sessions too. We provide quality training in Mumbai with CCNP/CCIE certified trainers and we’ll certainly strive to continue working with equal focus and commitment on CCDA and CCDP/CCDE program too.
Yes. Weekend training facility will be made available for working professionals.
CCDA certificates are valid for 36 months.
