ICND1 and ICND2 are exams. Passing one or more exams typically gives you the right to claim a certification.

ICND1 (100-105) = CCENT
ICND1 + ICND2 (200-105) = CCNA Route/Switch

You may also take a combined exam to get the CCNA (200-125) if you don't want to take two separate exams, but this is usually only recommended for experienced network admins and won't give you the CCENT certification.

There are also other CCNA tracks with their own exam requirements, such as CCNA Collaboration, Cyber Ops, Security, Wireless, etc.

So after passing ICND1 & ICND2, I'll be CCNA Route/Switch certified ?

or passing the CCNA Composite, which is basically two exams in one.

and won't give you the CCENT certification.

True story! I have the NA, NP, passed the IE written, and am working on the IE lab, but no CCENT certification! No employer will hire me. <tears>

I wonder if I went back and took ICND1 if I'd get it now. I'd imagine I would. Second question is that I wonder if I could pass ICND1 immediately w/o reviewing any of the topics.

...that I already passed over a decade ago and don't need to take

I was actually more intrigued as to if it would actually work...

A go fund me, or passing the test without studying?

I always wonder this ... I'm only a CCNA but I wonder if I could sit one of the CompTIA exams again and pass first try ... I'm not spending the money to find out though haha ... I'll likely just let all my CompTIA certs expire honestly
