This is the first of four courses designed to provide knowledge, experience, and skills in current and emerging networking technology. This course is also designed to help students prepare for professional certification as a CISCO Certified Network Associate (CCNA). This course introduces you to fundamental networking concepts and technologies. In this course, you will learn both the practical and conceptual skills that build the foundation for understanding basic networking. Students will: examine human versus network communication and see the parallels between them; be introduced to the two major models used to plan and implement networks: OSI and TCP/IP; learn about network devices and network addressing schemes, and discover the types of media used to carry data across the network. This course maps to the current CISCO Certified Networking Associate curriculum version.
Corporate College's Cisco courses offer the opportunity to tailor your educational needs to your working schedule.
- 8-week classes
- Self-directed learning
- Assistance is always available
- Rotation allows completion of CCNA in 1 year, CCNP in 2 years.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Though a schedule of lectures for each class is provided, students can choose to progress at an advanced pace completing coursework ahead of the regular class progress. Students choosing to progress at an accelerated pace use the syllabus and other course documents to guide their progress through the course material during a semester. Course materials are provided using the Cisco Networking Academy Online Curriculum (CCNA classes only) and an online Cisco course management system (NetSpace) which contains proprietary class materials, assignments, exams, and announcements. Course assignments are provided on the Cisco NetSpace Webpages for each specific class. Students are responsible for reading the assigned Cisco curriculum and completing all learning activities, which includes lab assignments and exams, on their own, although help is available from instructors and Cisco tutors (hours to be announced in the classroom).
