CCNA is a 280-hour, four part curriculum, and is the first step to a Cisco career certification path. Particular emphasis is given to using decision-making and problem-solving techniques in the application of science, mathematics and Communication concepts to solve networking problems. Students learn how to install and configure Cisco switches and routers in multiprotocol networks using local and wide-area networks (LANs and WANs), provide Level 1 troubleshooting service, and improve network performance and security. Upon successful completion of this course, students receive a Certificate of Completion. This curriculum also prepares students for the CCNA exam and for the Network+ certification, a vendor-neutral certification in basic networking skills, which is available through CompTIA (Computing Technology Industry Association).
