    Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA)

    The Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching curriculum is a gateway to entry-level networking jobs and IT careers. The curriculum consists of four courses:

    All four courses are recommended before taking the Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification exam.

    • Develop a working knowledge of routing, switching, network applications, protocols, and services
    • Study with an instructor in the classroom and access expert content online anytime
    • Practice what you learn on both real equipment and Cisco Packet Tracer, a network configuration simulation tool
    • Get immediate feedback on your work through built-in quizzes and tests
    • Prepare for the workplace with collaborative projects and presentations
    • Connect with the global Cisco Networking Academy community

    CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum builds the skills you need to get hired and succeed in jobs related to networking computers, devices, and things. Whether you’re preparing for your first job or specialising with more study, CCNA is a great foundation. Career pathways include: network technician, support engineer, network administrator, network designer, network engineer, and more.

    CCNA Security validates associate-level knowledge and skills required to secure Cisco networks. With a CCNA Security certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to develop a security infrastructure, recognise threats and vulnerabilities to networks, and mitigate security threats.

    CCNA CyberOps provides a valuable first step in acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to work with a SOC team, and can be a valuable part of beginning a career in the exciting and growing field of cybersecurity operations.

    Exams need to be booked and paid for separately via a Pearson VUE testing centre.
