Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching

Program Overview

Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching Program

The CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum is designed for students who are seeking entry-level jobs in the ICT industry or hope to fulfill prerequisites to pursue more specialized ICT skills. CCNA Routing and Switching provides extensive coverage of networking topics, from fundamentals to advanced applications and services, with plenty of opportunities to gain hands-on practical experience and develop career skills. In each course, students learn technology concepts with the support of interactive media and apply and practice this knowledge through a series of hands-on and simulated activities that reinforce learning. Students progress from basic networking to more complex enterprise and theoretical networking models later in the curriculum.

Industry Recognized Certification

The curriculum helps students develop workforce readiness skills and builds a foundation for success in networking-related careers and degree programs. Students will be prepared to take the Cisco CCENT® (Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician) certification exam after completing a set of two courses and the CCNA Routing and Switching certification exam after completing a set of four courses.  It is important that students understand that programs leading to industry certification are rigorous and demanding. However, any student interested in computer technology, regardless of his/her background, can be successful with this networking program if he/she has a desire to learn and a willingness to work.
