CCNA Routing and Switching
The Cisco Networking Academy® CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum, taught in Auckland at the Manukau Institute of Technology is designed for students
- who are seeking entry-level ICT jobs
- plan to pursue more specialized ICT skills.
- who need to formalise their knowledge in order to prepare for the certification
It provides comprehensive coverage of networking topics, from fundamentals to advanced applications and services, with opportunities for hands-on practical experience and career skills development.
Students will be prepared to take the Cisco CCENT® certification exam after completing a set of two courses
They will also be ready to pass the CCNA® Routing and Switching certification exam after completing the full set of four courses
Features and Benefits
Students learn the basics of routing, switching, and advanced technologies to prepare for the CCENT and CCNA certification exams, and the courses are embedded within the NZ Diploma in Engineering , (Electrical Major -Computer Specialisation), Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Electrical Engineering Major – Computer Network Specialisation).
The language used to describe networking concepts is designed to be easily understood by learners at all levels. Embedded interactive activities help reinforce comprehension.
Courses emphasize critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and the practical application of skills.
Multimedia learning tools, including videos, games, and quizzes, address a variety of learning styles and promote increased knowledge retention.
Hands-on labs and Cisco® Packet Tracer simulation-based learning activities help students develop critical thinking and complex problem solving skills.
Embedded assessments provide immediate feedback to support the evaluation of knowledge and acquired skills.
CCNA Routing and Switching teaches comprehensive networking concepts, from network applications to the protocols and services provided to those applications by the lower layers of the network. Students will progress from basic networking to more complex enterprise and theoretical networking models later in the curriculum.
There are four courses in the recommended sequence:
- Introduction to Networks
- Routing and Switching Essentials
- Scaling Networks
- Connecting Networks
In each course, Networking Academy™ students will learn technology concepts with the support of interactive media and apply and practice this knowledge through a series of hands-on and simulated activities that reinforce their learning.
