The Cisco Networking Academy Program is an educational program that trains students to design, build, and maintain local- and wide-area networks, and to provide PC software and hardware support. Students will be prepared for networking, PC support, and IT related jobs in the public and private sectors, and for higher education in information technology, telecommunications, engineering, computer science, and other related fields.
Most classes are held one evening per week and are designed to work around a busy schedule. Students earn college credit and are prepared for Cisco and CompTIA certification exams like CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, CCNP, and A+. Tuition is charged by the credit hour and is very affordable at just over $800 per course.
Launched in 2002, the Cisco Networking Academy Program at ECC is a full complement of courses ranging from novice to advanced levels. The Cisco Networking Academy Program helps to prepare students for industry standard certifications that help jump-start or advance their career, including:
Whether you would like to learn how to assemble computers, troubleshoot PC hardware and software issues, design, build, and troubleshoot small to medium networks, or implement security on medium to large networks, the Cisco Networking Academy Program has the right courses and plan for you.
Some students want to pursue a two-year associate’s degree in Networking and Telecommunications Technology or Information Technology. Still others are interested in becoming trained and job-ready in less than a year take advantage of our new certificate program, Network Support Technology. Finally, students already employed in the field can choose to only take courses necessary for meeting their goals.
