  • Program Overview

    The Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) certificate program is designed to prepare information systems professionals for the field of network management, design, configuration, maintenance and troubleshooting of both local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs). CCNAs are becoming increasingly important as the number of networking devices continues to increase. Students enrolling in the CCNA certificate program will be able to meet these needs, thereby effectively engaging with this growing segment of the economy. Four courses will teach students the necessary skills to make them successful in the field of data networking.

    After completing the certificate courses, students will need additional preparation and practice time to successfully pass the CCNA certification exam.
