The Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) program is a four course program that uses web-based computer instruction and a lab setting that closely resembles a real networking environment to explore networking technology. Students gain skills needed for designing, building and maintaining computer networks. Scheduled class periods include review and hands-on lab exercises and projects. Testing is done online. The total time commitments for successful completion is 90 hours per semester. Students who pass Cisco’s national examination will earn a CCNA certification that is recognized world-wide.
