Cisco CCNA for IT Supporters: Module 1 - Introduction to Networks (Series 10)
PrerequisitesSpecial£

Wed 9 Aug, Wed 16 Aug, ... Wed 8 Nov 2017
CANCELLED

Description

The Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) programme is open to University IT Supporters. It covers network technology, protocols and theory at deeper levels reflective of University practices. There is a fee to attend this course and an additional fee to take the CCNA (200-120) certification exam.

CCNA Routing and Switching provides a comprehensive overview of networking concepts and skills, from network applications to the protocols and services provided to those applications by the lower layers of the network, with an emphasis on practical application, work-force readiness, and soft-skills development. You will progress from basic networking to more complex enterprise and theoretical networking models later in the curriculum.

There are four modules in the recommended sequence:

We offer this program as instructor led with online access to the curriculum with the support of interactive media and an online networks laboratory called NETLAB. There is a mix of lecture, demonstrations and a heavy emphasis on practical activities using live lab equipment and a simulation package.

Introduction to Networks is the first module of four modules in CCNA. Please book onto this first module to reserve your place for the whole programme.

This module introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and computer networks. The principles of IP addressing and fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum. By the end of the course, you will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes.

Target audience
  • University IT Supporters are the target audience, although it is open to all current University members (departments and colleges)
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available
Prerequisites

You should have a keen interest in networking technology and be prepared to self study for up to 3 - 4 hours per week depending on your previous knowledge or experience. Please see Your commitments for more details. You should also have access to a computer with Internet access for study purposes as all of the course materials for CCNA are online.
