CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate
The Cisco CCNA curriculum provides general networking theory, practical experience, and opportunities for career exploration and soft-skills development. The curriculum teaches networking based on application, covering networking concepts within the context of network environments students may encounter in their daily lives – from small office and home office (SOHO) networking to more complex enterprise and theoretical networking models later in the curriculum. CCNA is designed for students with basic PC skills and foundational math and problem solving skills. The curriculum offers an engaging learning experience for more visual and kinetic learners. Many interactive activities are embedded in all of the courses to break up the text and help reinforce student comprehension. In addition, a large number of labs encourage additional hands-on practice.
CCNA can be delivered as an independent curriculum or integrated into a broader course of study, such as technology or continuing education programs. The curriculum is appropriate for students at many education levels and types of institutions, including high schools, secondary schools, universities, colleges, career and technical schools, community organizations, and other non-traditional learning environments.
CCNA helps prepare students for entry-level career opportunities, continuing education, and globally-recognized Cisco CCENT and CCNA certifications.

A cram session will typically run from Monday to Friday 9:00am to 5:00pm. Our Cisco Academy Instructors will be on hand to guide students through all topics of the course using visual and auditory aides as well as demonstrations on actual Cisco equipment. Students will be given Packet Tracer, a simulation software Cisco routers and switches with lab activities to work through in their own time outside of the sessions to familiarise themselves with topics and concepts.
