The Cisco Networking Academy program delivers a comprehensive learning experience to help students develop ICT skills for entry-level career opportunities, continuing education, and globally recognized career certifications. The curricula also help students build 21st century skills such as collaboration and problem solving by encouraging the practical application of knowledge through hands-on activities and network simulations.
Networking Academy teaches ICT skills to students from virtually every socioeconomic background and region of the world. Students gain the skills needed to pursue networking careers in a variety of industries such as healthcare, technology, financial services, fashion, entertainment, and more. Students also gain access to a global support group, career developments tools, and social networking resources to help them become architects of the human network.
As networking capabilities continue to grow and expand, corporations, nonprofits, schools, hospitals, governments, and NGOs around the world are experiencing a shortage of qualified information and communication technology (ICT) specialists to design, install, secure, and manage their networks.
Students who gain ICT knowledge and practical experience through the Networking Academy program can earn Cisco career certifications and help fill an estimated eight million networking jobs around the world. Our courses map to globally recognized certifications to help students and alumni stand out in the job market and demonstrate their skills and competencies to employers.
One of our learning partners, CompTIA, has developed a TechCareer Compass to give you a better idea of the job opportunities available for networking professionals.
