The Cisco Networking Skills Certificate is a comprehensive e-learning program, which provides students with the Internet technology skills essential in a global economy. The program delivers Web-based content, online assessment, student performance tracking, hands-on labs, instructor training and support, and preparation for industry-standard certifications. Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA), a 280-hour curriculum, is the first step in a Cisco career certification path. Particular emphasis is given to using decision-making and problem-solving techniques in the application of science, mathematics, communication and social studies concepts to solve networking problems. Students will learn how to install and configure Cisco switches and routers in multiprotocol networks using local- and wide-area networks (LANs and WANs), provide Level 1 troubleshooting service, and improve network performance and security.

Network Administrators, consultants and help desk support personal benefit from this series of classes. These jobs are proving to be more immune to overseas outsourcing than other IT professions and demand for proficient workers is fairly constant. Some students may complete these courses as a way to prepare for the CCNA exam, while others will enroll as an avenue for advancement in their current jobs.
