The Cisco CCNA certification for network associates validates the ability to install, configure, operate,and troubleshoot medium-sized routed and switched networks, and implement and verify connections to remote sites in a wide-area network (WAN).

The Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum provides an integrated and comprehensive coverage of networking topics, from fundamentals to advanced applications and services, while providing opportunities for hands-on practical experience and soft-skills development. The curriculum teaches networking based on technology, covering networking concepts using a top-down, theoretical, and integrated approach form network applications to the network protocols and services provided to those applications by the lower layers of the network.

CECS is registered as a CISCO Networking Academy -  ID : 3089662 since January 2011

Who Must Attend This Course

Students who already have the CompTIA A+ certificate and those who want to follow a career as a Help Desk Technician, Network Technician, Network Administrator, Network Installer or Network Engineer. Please note that one will have to sign a declaration on registration to confirm that he/she owns or have full access to a computer/laptop with internet access.

What the Course Entails

  • Student-initiated interactive quizzes are embedded in all courses
  • Online chapter, practice final, and final exams are scored immediately and provide personalized feedback
  • Cisco certification practice exams help students prepare with rich media tasks similar to those found on the actual certification exams
