CCNA 1: Introduction to Networks

Begin preparing for a networking career with this introduction to how networks operate. This first course in the 3-course CCNA series introduces architectures, models, protocols, and networking elements - functions needed to support the operations and priorities of Fortune 500 companies to small innovative retailers. You'll even get the chance to build simple local area networks (LANs) yourself. You'll have a working knowledge of IP addressing schemes, foundational network security, and be able to perform basic configurations for routers and switches.

*This is the first course in a 3-course CCNA series designed to prepare participants for entry-level networking jobs.

Required prep: Must have access to a computer with Windows as well as Internet access outside of class to complete assignments. Experience with hardware and computer troubleshooting, familiarity with computer terms, experience with Windows operating system.

CCNA 3: Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation

Large enterprises depend heavily on the smooth operation of their network infrastructures. This is why networking professionals are vital to every organization and those with networking skills can land a great job and set their sights on a rewarding career! This third course in the 3-course CCNA series describes the architectures and considerations related to designing, securing, operating, and troubleshooting enterprise networks. It covers wide area network (WAN) technologies and quality of service (QoS) mechanisms used for secure remote access along with the introduction of software-defined networking, virtualization, and automation concepts that support the digitalization of networks.

This course prepares participants for networking analyst and engineering positions. Tuition covers a certification exam voucher for the CCNA certification.

You'll Learn These Core Skills:

  • Work with routers and switches using OSPF in point-to-point and multiaccess networks.
  • Mitigate threats and enhance network security using access control lists and security best practices.
  • Develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills using real equipment and Cisco Packet Tracer.
  • Understand virtualization, SDN, and how APIs and configuration management tools enable network automation.

Required prep: Completion of CCNA 1 v7 (Introduction to Networks) and CCNA 2 v7 (Switching, Routing and Wireless Essentials) or equivalent knowledge and experience

Network+ Training and Certification Prep

Network+ prepares you for a career in IT infrastructure. Knowing how to install, configure, operate, manage, maintain, and troubleshoot a computer network is a highly marketable and exciting skill.

Topics covered include:

  • Networking Concepts - Explain the purpose of a variety of networking concepts and implement them appropriately
  • Infrastructure - Determine and explain appropriate cabling, device, and storage technologies
  • Network Operations - Use best practices to manage the network, determine policies, and ensure business continuity
  • Network Security - Summarize physical security and common attacks while securing the wired and wireless network
  • Network Troubleshooting and Tools - Explain the network troubleshooting methodology and appropriate tools to support connectivity and performance

After completing this course and the accompanying hands-on lab exercises, you will be prepared to select the best network design, hardware, and software for your environment. You will also have the skills to build a network from scratch and maintain, upgrade, troubleshoot, and manage an existing network. 

Training is distance-delivered via Zoom with a combination of live lectures, readings, and labs. Many hours of independent self-study are expected outside of class meetings.

This course prepares you for the CompTIA Network+ certification. Although test prep for the certification exams is covered in class, additional study is needed. Certification exam which is included in this training is scheduled at the end of the course. Participants must report their test date and exam results.
