Course Overview

IT Networking introduces foundational topics behind enterprise networking. Through both content mastery and hands-on virtual and physical lab activities, students are introduced to the TCP/IP networking model and its basic implementations on Cisco networking equipment.

The main goal for students is preparation for and completion of the CiscoCertified Entry Network Technician (CCENT) certification from Cisco Systems. The CCENT credential prepares students for work as support agents in Network Operation Centers (NOC) as well as network technicians or junior- level administrators for enterprise network teams.

Tech901’s IT Network course is the combination of two Cisco Network Academy courses:

– CCNA1: Introduction to Networking v6: This course includes an overview of basic IP networking concepts and equipment overview, including and introduction to basic Cisco hardware.

– CCNA2: Routing and Switching v6: After mastering basic terminology and operation, this course dives into routing and switching concepts

    The instructor knows his material!

    I liked everything about the class. I always felt like I could ask questions and got the material that I needed to pass the test or work in the IT field. The instructor knows his material! I like how we did quiz games for the last class I took maybe more games like that to make sure we know how to process the information we are learning. The packet tracer activities helped a lot too, I'm glad we covered those in class.
