Cisco Network Specialist, Technical Certificate of Credit

Overview

Offered at the Augusta campus

Entrance Dates: Spring and Fall, Day and Evening
Length of Program: Three Terms
Credit Hours Required for Graduation: 16

Program Description: The purpose of this Cisco Network Specialist certificate is to teach students the skills needed to design, build, and maintain small to medium-size networks and help prepare for the CCNA certification examination. This provides opportunity to enter the workforce and/or further their education and training in the computer networking field. High school graduation or GED is required for admission to this program.

Employment Opportunities: According to the Information Technology Association of America (ITAA) employers will create a demand in this country for roughly 1.6 million IT workers this year. With demand for appropriately skilled people far exceeding supply, half of these positions--843,328--will likely go unfilled. In a total U.S. IT workforce of 10 million, that shortfall means one job in every dozen will be vacant.

Credentialing (Optional):  Completion of this TCC provides training to sit for the following examinations to enhance employability-- CCNA (Cisco Systems Inc.)
