Overview

If you’ve ever considered working as a Cisco Networking Engineer or specialist, but felt you lacked the knowledge or skills to launch your career, this might be what you’re looking for.

This course is aimed at absolute beginners to IT who want to start a career in Cisco networking or just develop their skills in this area. The course assumes you have no technical knowledge of IT whatsoever. To understand Cisco networking and practice it at a technical level, you must first possess an understanding of basic IT literacy as well as certain technologies, which you will be taught through this course. Through this course, you will gain a series of globally recognised networking certifications from CompTIA and Cisco. You will also possess a set of networking skills you can apply to a vast range of IT job roles.

The course is comprised of five separate courses in total. Once of which is skills based only with no exam, and four certification courses with a final exam after each course. The final course being the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA). The first course (CompTIA IT Fundamentals) provides a soft introduction to basic IT terminology, concepts and technology.
