GET TO KNOW THE PROGRAM

Summarizing the program...........    <return CISCO's program index>

CCNA Routing and Switching teaches comprehensive networking concepts, from network applications to the protocols and services provided to those applications by lower layers of the network. Students will progress from basic home and small business networking to more complex enterprise and theoretical networking models.

In each course, the students will learn technology concepts with the support of interactive media and apply and practice this knowledge through a series of hands-on and simulated activities that reinforces the learning.

CISCO curriculum is delivered online through a browser-based medium, helping students develop practical networking knowledge and skills in a hands-on environment. In a lab setting that closely resembles a true networking environment, students work with the architecture and infrastructure of information networks, learning the principles and practices of designing, building, implementing and maintaining local- and wide-area networks.
