IMINS v1.0 - Managing Industrial Networks with Cisco Networking Technologies


Managing Industrial Networks with Cisco Networking Technologies (IMINS) Version 1.0 is a hands-on lab-based course, which helps students with the foundational skills needed for the management and administration of networked industrial control systems. The IMINS course, developed in conjunction with Rockwell Automation, helps plant administrators, control system engineers and traditional network engineers understand networking technologies that are needed in todays connected plants and enterprises. This course also helps you prepare for the Cisco Industrial Networking Specialist Certification exam (exam ID 600-601) and qualify for the Cisco Industrial Networking Specialist certification. The goal of this course is to enable you to achieve competency and skills to install, configure, maintain, and troubleshoot industrial network systems while helping to ensure network availability, reliability, and Internet security throughout your company.


After you complete this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe Cisco Industrial Ethernet (IE) Switches, Cisco Connected GridSwitches and Routers, and Rockwell Automation Stratix Switches
  • Interpret designs and drawings, recognize industrial topologies, and accessreference materials
  • Install industrial network components
  • Deploy industrial network components
  • Perform basic maintenance tasks
  • Troubleshoot network and control issues


The knowledge and skills that you must have before attending this course include a college degree or non-degreed qualified technician with 2-3 years experience. Also, it is recommended you take the following Cisco Electronic Learning and Training (ELT) courses to achieve a basic understanding of networking and industrial protocols: • Networking Fundamentals for Industrial Control Systems (INICS) • Industrial Control Systems Fundamentals for Network Engineers (ICINS).
