Advanced Certificate in Computer Networking -CCNA


After successful completion of the program, participants should be able to: 

1. Students learn the basics of routing, switching, and advanced technologies to prepare for the CCENT and CCNA certification exams, networking related degree programs, and entry-level careers. 

 2. The language used to describe networking concepts is designed to be easily understood by learners at all levels and embedded interactive activities help reinforce comprehension. 

 3. Courses emphasize critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and the practical application of skills. 

4. Multimedia learning tools, including videos, games, and quizzes, address a variety of learning styles and promote increased knowledge retention. 

 5. Hands-on labs and Cisco® Packet Tracer simulation-based learning activities help students develop critical thinking and complex problem solving skills. 

 6. Embedded assessments provide immediate feedback to support the evaluation of knowledge and acquired
