Networking 2A

The Networking 2A course is for students who want to further their study of IT, specifically in the area of Networking. The Networking 2A course Follows the CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum and is delivered through the Cisco NetAcademy.

The Cisco CCNA® Routing and Switching curriculum is designed for Cisco Networking Academy® course participants who are seeking entry-level jobs in the Information Communications Technology (ICT) industry or wish to keep pace with fast paced implementation of ICT in their industry. CCNA Routing and Switching provides an integrated and comprehensive coverage of networking topics, from fundamentals to advanced applications and services, while providing opportunities for hands-on practical experience and career skills development.

Course participants will be prepared to take the Cisco CCENT® certification exam after completing a set of two courses and the CCNA Routing and Switching certification* exam after completing a set of four courses. The curriculum also helps course participants develop essential skills and builds a foundation for success in networking-related careers.


CCNA1: Introduction to Networks

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

Participants who complete Introduction to Networks will be able to perform the following functions:

  • Understand and describe the devices and services used to support communications in data networks and the Internet
  • Understand and describe the role of protocol layers in data networks
  • Understand and describe the importance of addressing and naming schemes at various layers of data networks in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  • Design, calculate, and apply subnet masks and addresses to fulfill given requirements in IPv4 and IPv6 networks
  • Explain fundamental Ethernet concepts such as media, services, and operations
  • Build a simple Ethernet network using routers and switches
  • Use Cisco command-line interface (CLI) commands to perform basic router and switch configurations
  • Utilize common network utilities to verify small network operations and analyze data traffic
