Catalog Course Description

The second in a series of three courses designed to help prepare students for entry-level networking jobs and the CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) certification. Focuses on switching technologies and router operations that support small-to-medium business networks and includes wireless local area networks (WLANs) and security concepts. Students learn key switching and routing concepts. Students perform basic network configuration and troubleshooting, identify and mitigate LAN security threats, and configure and secure a basic WLAN. Note: course topics help students prepare for the CCNA certification exam, but the exam is not included in this course. Industry certification exams are administered by an independent testing agency.
