The Cisco Network Associate certification validates the skills required for entry-level network engineering/technical support/administration positions. Candidates will gain the knowledge and skill to install, operate and troubleshoot a small enterprise branch network, including basic network security and also successfully complete the CCNA examination.
This is a 3-part hands-on intensive course:
CCNA-1: Introduction to Networks
CCNA-1: Switching, Routing and Wireless Essentials
CCNA-3: Enterprise Networking, Security and Automation
This course will follow the same curriculum and labs as those offered as part MCC’s A.A.S degree in Information and Network Technology; namely: CPT 115 – Introduction to Networks, CPT 215 – Routing Fundamentals, and CPT 219 – Enterprise Networking.
As such, students meeting the academic requirements will be able to obtain credits (3 each for each course), subject to approval of their application for credit.
Pre-requisites focuses largely on Cisco-specific configurations and management. A background in networking and a working knowledge of Cisco equipment is desired. Previous CompTIA Network+ or CCT certification is highly recommended. The ideal candidate is already working in IT networking and is looking to advance their career with CCNA certification.
