Learn the technical skills needed to succeed in networking professions such as network installer, help desk technician, pre-sales support technician, or network technician. In addition, the certificate prepares students for two different Cisco industry recognized certification exams, CCENT and CCNA. The Cisco CCENT certifies that students have developed the practical skills required for entry-level networking support positions and is the first step toward earning the Cisco CCNA certification, which is the foundational IT certification for networking careers.
This certificate program is approximately two quarters in length, depending on the time students need to satisfactorily complete all requirements. The Cisco Networking Academy curriculum (Cisco I, II, III, and IV) is used and two additional lab courses prepare student for the CCENT and CCNA industry certification exams. All the courses in this certificate count toward the Computer Networking & Information Systems Security (CNISS) AAT or AAS-T degree program.
Prerequisites: Students who enroll in the Cisco Network Design & Security certificate program are not expected to have any previous technical skills or knowledge, aside from basic PC skills.
