Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program, Degree and Certificate List

The Cisco CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) is one of the most demanded certifications in networking. Cisco has designed a four-course program which leads to this certification. Students may cover the entire track at IVC over four semesters; or they may take the college’s accelerated program, completing two semesters’ worth of material in one semester, in order to acquire the CCNA in one academic year. The program is designed to meet the needs of students who want 1) to obtain entry-level employment, 2) to advance in their current positions, or 3) to change careers. This program enables students to demonstrate specialization in areas such as computer technical support and networking. After completing the program, the actual CCNA Certification Exam is given by a third party. Potential careers include entry-level positions in such capacities as computer network analysts, computer network administrators, or computer network technicians.

Total Units Required: 22
