Computer Networking Technology

Instructor: Mr. Chris Ralston
Networking is a professional course that prepares students with industry standard credentials and technical certifications to aid in their understanding of computers and the inter-working of them. While completing the program, students will use concepts introduced in theory and reinforced through Cisco Networking Academy curriculum to build and repair computer systems and understand and configure components of a computer networking infrastructure.

The instruction focuses on A+ Certification, Net+ Certification, Windows Operating System, Server Operating System, Active Directory for Microsoft Server 2008, Cisco CCNA Networking, Alternate Operating Systems, and Advanced Concepts of Networking. The curriculum is reviewed annually for relevancy and updated as industry standards dictate. Upon completion of the course, students are prepared for a variety of certification exams, including CompTIA A+ and NET+, Microsoft Certified Professional, and many facets of the Cisco Certified Network Administrator exam.

Graduates of this program are well prepared for entry level employment. Additional education can lead to more opportunities in networking and information technology.
