CISCO certification ensures high standards of technical expertise. Achieving CISCO certification-at any level-means joining the ranks of skilled network professionals who have earned recognition and respect in the industry. CISCO provides three levels of certification for IT professionals with several different tracks to meet individual needs. Chapman University offers training courses to prepare the student for both the Associate (CCNA) and Professional (CCNP, CCDP) levels of the CISCO certification hierarchy.
CSCU 0061: CCNA Networking Fundamentals
Prerequisites: CompTIA Network+ Certification or equivalent experience. This course is a prerequisite for the CSCU 0062 Cisco Certified Network Associate Exam Preparation. CCNA Fundamentals provide students with in-depth knowledge of the TCP/IP protocol suite, advanced subnet masking, and the OSI Reference Model. Pre-CCNA lays the foundation for all advanced studies of CISCO routers and switches. The student will learn Ethernet networking concepts and standards; will explore the basics of the Open Systems Interconnection model using the CISCO three-layer hierarchical model; and will select CISCO equipment based on this model. The student will also learn advanced TCP/IP concepts starting with the TCP/IP protocol stack's network access layer through IP addressing and subnetting.
CSCU 0062: CCNA Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices
The CCNA certification (CISCO Certified Network Associate) indicates a foundation in and apprentice knowledge of networking. CCNA certified professionals can install, configure, and operate LAN, WAN, and dial access services for small networks (100 nodes or fewer), including but not limited to use of these protocols: IP, IGRP, Serial, Frame Relay, IP RIP, VLANs, RIP, Ethernet, Access Lists.
CSCU 0067: Building Scalable CISCO Internetworks
This course provides the student with the knowledge and skills to manage large, multiprotocol internetworks using access lists, queuing, tunneling, route distribution, router maps, BCP, OSPF, and route summarization.
CSCU 0087: Building CISCO Multilayer Switched Networks
Prerequisites: Network+ Certification or CCNA Status. This course provides the student with the knowledge to implement switches in a network and the skills to configure and troubleshoot the CISCO 1900 and 5000 series of Catalyst switches.
CSCU 0068: Building CISCO Remote Access Networks
Prerequisites: Network+ Certification or CCNA Status. This course provides the student with the knowledge and skills to install, configure, monitor, and troubleshoot Frame Relay and CISCO ISDN and dial-up access products.
CSCU 0069: CISCO Internetwork Troubleshoot Support
Prerequisites: Network+ Certification or CCNA Status. This course provides the student with the knowledge and skills to troubleshoot Ethernet and Token Ring LANS, IP, IPX, and AppleTalk Networks, as well as ISDN, PPP, and Frame Relay networks.
