Cisco Networking Academy: CCNA, Certificate of Specialization
This program teaches comprehensive networking concepts, from network applications to the protocols and services provided to those applications by the lower layers of the network. Students will progress from basic networking to more complex enterprise and theoretical networking models later in the curriculum. In each course, students will learn technology concepts with the support of interactive media and apply and practice this knowledge through a series of hands-on and simulated activities that reinforce their learning. The courses serve as preparation to take the Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT®) certification exam after completing the first two courses and the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA®) Routing and Switching certification exam after completing all four courses.
