Cisco CCNA Training Part 1   

Semester 1 – ITN + Semester 2 - SRWE, total duration = 138 hours.

Introduction to Networks – CCNAv7-ITN Semester 1

ITN lays the groundwork for students with basic computer skills. This course is designed to introduce students to the world of networking from a basic point of view while building skills and a solid understanding of network types, protocols, and communications through the 7 Layers of the OSI and 4 Layers of the TCP/IP Reference Models.  Students finish with a strong knowledgebase to progress to subsequent courses.  

Switching, Routing and Wireless Essentials – CCNAv7-SRWE Semester 2 (Prerequisite: completion of ITN)

SRWE focuses on switching technologies and router operations that support small-to-medium business networks and includes wireless local area networks (WLANs) and security concepts.


Job Outlook

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for IT networking professionals holding a certificate like CCNA is forecasted to have an 8% rate of growth until 2024. This is because of an increased usage of both networking technologies and cloud-based solutions in the corporate business world.

Between 2018 and 2028, the career is expected to grow 5% and produce 18,200 job opportunities across the U.S.

The certification allows an associate to work as a technician in one or more areas, including routing and switching, security, wireless services, or data center operation.



What is the CCNA certification?

Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is a technical certification that Cisco offers for early-career networking professionals.


What does a Cisco Certified Network Associate role involve?

Cisco Certified Network Associates work to support Local Area Network Technologies in support of the corporate goal. CCNA Technicians troubleshoot common network connectivity issues in addition to implementing, configuring, and supporting the underlying network infrastructure. The job of a CCNA or Cisco Certified Network Associate is to install, configure, and troubleshoot networks using products from Cisco, a major provider of networking services.
