  • Academies may replace the gray box with their institution’s logo
  • At Cisco, our vision is to change the way people work, live, play and learn. Today, networks are an essential part of business, education, government and home communications, and Cisco Internet Protocol-based (IP) networking solutions are the foundation of these networks. Cisco hardware, software, and service offerings are used to create Internet solutions that allow individuals, companies, and countries to increase productivity, improve customer satisfaction and strengthen competitive advantage. In less than 10 years, the entire world has been connected—making it effortless and inexpensive to instantaneously communicate around the globe. We now have the world and its information at our fingertips—creating new opportunities for businesses, governments, educational institutions, and individuals.
  • The Academy program provides students with the Internet technology skills essential in a global economy. Prepares students for the demands of the workplace. Leads to further education and learning. Preparation for industry standard certifications.
  • A Cisco initiative helped schools design practical, cost-effective networks, but they lacked the financial and human resources to maintain them. Cisco worked with instructional designers and educators to develop a curriculum to teach educators and students how to design, build and maintain computer networks. The Academy program launched in October 1997 with 64 Academies in the United States. Students completed the Academy curriculum with practical skills and real experience. The program rapidly expanded to become an IT career development program. Academies quickly spread to schools, colleges and universities, and other not-for-profit educational institutions around the world.
  • Data as of April 2005
  • Cisco Networking Academy Courses are designed to give students the opportunity to gain real-world experience in an instructor-led environment Educators and policymakers agree that student learning occurs best when high-quality curriculum, instruction, and assessment are standards-based, aligned and reinforcing each other. The Cisco Networking Academy Program is NOT just a virtual class or an online course. The curriculum is delivered over the Internet to classrooms with certified instructors and specialized equipment. The standards-based curriculum emphasizes critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration as well as practical knowledge. Academy students don’t just read about networking, they build networks and complete hands-on exercises in specially equipped labs. Instructors use a variety of teaching and learning activities to help students master content. Multimedia address a variety of learning styles at once. Embedded assessment provides students, instructors, and Cisco with immediate feedback about progress and effectiveness. More about assessments Tight connection of curriculum exams with certification exam Extensive design process Constant performance monitoring through statistical analysis Refreshes based on performance monitoring and instructor input Different types of exam to fulfill different instructional needs The program uses a blended learning model. Each Academy integrates high quality face-to-face teaching with hands-on lab exercises. Cisco provides multi-media delivery of challenging curricula and embedded assessment over the Internet. It successfully prepares graduates for networking and IT related jobs in the public and private sectors, as well as for higher education in engineering, computer science, and related fields.
  • This current course list shows the breadth of the Academy curriculum available covering a wide range of networking and IT skills. Each of these semester-length courses prepare students for practical IT careers and education: Founded on sound pedagogy and proven educational practices Prepares students for industry certification CCNA, CCNP, CompTIA's A+ certification, Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform, etc. Designed for several career paths Network specialists, computing hardware and software specialists, programmers, advanced degrees, etc. Students also develop critical skills Improve math, science, writing, and problem-solving skills, work productively with others.
  • The curriculum is updated regularly with the latest technology and improvements. Students with different learning styles have access to several modes of explanation. Students receive feedback through comprehensive assessments where they apply their skills. They discover what they’ve learned and what they need to review. The Academy program also has a significant hands-on component where students apply what they learn. Students build and troubleshoot real networks with access to trained instructors as needed. This encourages teamwork and enhances problem solving abilities. Students graduate from the program with a marketable skill that has been tested and evaluated prior to their first day on the job.
  • Stay Connected There are other technology training programs, but only the Cisco Networking Academy Program offers access to the Career Connection. This worldwide, online resource for students and graduates connects you to opportunities through job placement, internships, and career development services. To be eligible to register as an Alumni, you only need to successfully complete one curriculum course.
