CCNA curriculum includes basic mitigation of security threats, introduction to wireless networking concepts and terminology, and performance-based skills. It also includes (but is not limited to) the use of these protocols: IP, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Serial Line Interface Protocol Frame Relay, Routing Information Protocol Version 2 (RIPv2),VLANs, Ethernet, access control lists (ACLs).

 

The goals of CCNA Curriculum are as follows:

  1. Help students recognize the significant impact of networking on their lives
  2. Teach students how to build and support a home or small business network with wireless equipment.
  3. Instill a sense of awe in students and encourage them to learn more about how things work and to pursue careers in networking
  4. Prepare students for entry-level jobs in the industry by employing interactive and engaging instructional approaches that help them understand general theory and gain practical experience
  5. Teach students the fundamental concepts of networking
  6. Provide opportunities for extensive hands-on interaction with PC and networking equipment to prepare students for careers and certification exams
  7. Establish the relevancy of networking in our everyday lives
