Cisco Networking Preparatory

 

Consider taking a step towards a career in network management by achieving a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification. By pursuing your certification at PC Professor, you will broaden your vocational skill sets and your ability to manage and/or optimize network systems.  As many IT Directors will confirm, the CCNA certification is a stamp of approval for associate-level professionals interested in networking.

This preparatory class teaches the skills required to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium size enterprise branch network. Topics include connecting to a WAN; implementing network security; network types; network media; routing and switching fundamentals; the TCP/IP and OSI models; IP addressing; WAN technologies; operating and configuring IOS devices; extending switched networks with VLANs; determining IP routes; managing IP traffic with access lists; establishing point-to-point connections; and, among other possible topics, establishing Frame Relay connections.

The CCNA Preparatory Certificationclass trains students how to install and configure LANs and WANs for 5 to 500 users. Students receive practical, hands-on training at individual stations–each equipped with TWO Cisco routers and a Cisco switch. Taught by an articulate instructor, students will learn how to install, configure, and operate LANs, WANs, and dial access services for small, medium and large networks.

This preparatory course is vocational in nature and is designed for those seeking advancement in their existing job or for those seeking to pursue an IT career.   While not required, graduates of this program may consider taking the associated Cisco CCNA certification exam.
