  • There are four courses in the CCNA Discovery curriculum. Each course should be offered in sequence. Networking for Home and Small Businesses is the first course in the sequence and is a prerequisite for the second course.
  • We have developed several resources to assist with the deployment and adopting of the new CCNA curricula. Many of them are available now to help you with your planning, and others will be available when the curricula are launched. The At-a-Glance and FAQs provide a description of the new CCNA curricula, benefits, target audiences, and availability. The external presentation is this slide deck, which provides an overview of the Networking Academy program portfolio and details about the new CCNA curricula, changes, positioning, and more. The Scope and Sequence documents provide the curricula & course descriptions, with chapter outlines and equipment requirements. The detailed equipment list provides part numbers for ordering.
