Why Cisco CCNA in Network Engineering?

Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is a professional qualification accredited by Cisco for network professionals. This course teaches you to network, operate and troubleshoot complex networks and systems.


You can get two certifications from our course:

  • Academy Certification: Upon completion of the CCNA course in the Cisco Networking Academy program, you’ll be awarded an academic certification.
  • Industry Certification: This can be taken in any Pearson VUE authorized testing center. The cost will be paid by the student.
  • You Can Book Cisco Exams Through Our Pearson Vue Exam Center

Entry requirements

You’ll be required to have:

  • a reading-age level of 15
  • basic computer literacy and awareness of the internet
  • prior experience with computer hardware, cabling, binary math and basic electronics (this is desired, but not required)

You’re also required to have a Windows-based PC or laptop with internet connection if you want to study the material outside of the University premises.

Course structure

To earn the new CCNA, you only need to complete one exam, due to go live on Feb 24, 2020. This new exam (200-301 CCNA) will cover a wide range of networking, security, automation, and programmability topics.

Under the soon-to-be-antiquated CCNA program, choosing to go down the path of CCNA Security leads to CCNP Security. However, that will no longer be the case after the new cert sequence. At that point, you will begin to specialize when you decide to go for your CCNP.

Students may look at the current list of CCNA offerings and requirements, only to get intimidated by all the information. Under the new program, the path’s a lot easier to follow. With this in mind, it seems like Cisco’s new program could encourage more people to take the first step toward earning CCNA.
