- Cisco Networking Academy at CUNY on the Concourse
- Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT)
- Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA)
The Cisco Certified Network Associate is the first level of Cisco’s career certification. This newly revised CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum prepares students who are seeking entry-level Information and Communications Technology (ICT) jobs or plan to pursue more specialized ICT skills. The program helps students build workforce readiness skills for in-demand jobs. CCNA Routing and Switching provides comprehensive coverage of networking topics, from fundamentals to advanced applications and services, with opportunities for hands-on practical experience. The complete curriculum is approved by the Cisco Networking Academy. Students will be prepared to take the Cisco CCENT certification exam after completing CCNA 1 and 2 and the CCNA Routing and Switching certification after completing all four courses. Prerequisite: A+ Computer Technician.
Introduction to Networking: CCNA 1
Topics include basic principles of communication in networks; definition and function of network protocols and network models (e.g., OSI); communication layers in network models; addressing and naming schemes; subnet masks; Ethernet concepts; basic cabling and network design; and basic router and switch configuration. Working on state-of-the-art Cisco hardware, you will build small networks to analyze real data and engage in packet tracer activities to analyze protocol and network operation. Prerequisite: Firm grasp of microcomputer hardware and operating systems on non-networked systems. CIP 120 or equivalent is highly recommended as preparation for Basic Networking: CCNA 1. Prerequisite CIP 120 or equivalent
CIP 225 10 sessions / 60 hours / COTC / $775
Routing and Switching Essentials: CCNA 2
Topics include the functions and services of routers, hardware and software components, configuration and management of routers, static and dynamic routing, routing protocols and routing tables. Prerequisite: CIP 225 or equivalent.
CIP 226 10 sessions / 60 hours / COTC / $775
Scaling Networks: CCNA 3
Topics include Ethernet networks; basic switching concepts; installation, configuration, operation, management and troubleshooting of switched networks and CISCO switches; VLANs and related switching technologies; basic wireless networking concepts, protocols and software and hardware components; and wireless LAN configuration, management, security and troubleshooting. Prerequisite CIP 226 or equivalent
CIP 227 20 sessions / 60 hours / COTC / $775
Connecting Networks: CCNA 4
Learn the wide area nertwork (WAN) technologies and services required to reliably and securely connect small to medium-sized local area networks (LANs) and to provide safe and secure access to enterprise resources by employees workign from rempte locations. Topics invclude WAN connectvity technology (e.g. point-to-point protocol and frame relay); IP addressing and network traffic control; access control lists (ACLs); and network security threats and solutions. Configurations and management of routers, specialized deives and software to support WANs are also covered. At the successful completion of this course, you are prepared to take the CISCO CCNA certification exam. Prerequisite CIP 227 or equivalent
