Leadership Course


Firstly, Cisco is a trusted leader in networking technology and the Certification provided by the Cisco CCNA Programme is recognised internationally. Furthermore, any Cisco certification obtained will therefore always be an investment in your IT career. Consequently, companies using Cisco routers and switches will often seek out Network Engineers or other IT professionals who hold CCNA certification. The CCNA certification is also required in order to progress to other Cisco certifications, such as the CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional) which is at a more advanced level and demand an even higher salary than the CCNA.

Importantly, our live online CCNA course will teach you how to install, configure, implement, operate and analyse network security. Also, you’ll learn how to manage online threats, optimise wireless and network performance, troubleshoot routed and switched networks and implement and verify connections to remote sites in a WAN (Wide Area Network). Above all, it will teach you everything you need to know in order to pass your CCNA exams.

Additionally, our CCNA programme consists of 8 live online lessons which take place out of normal working hours, therefore allowing you to learn while you earn.

Indeed, there are two certified courses included in this programme:
1. 100-105: ICND1
2. 200-205: ICND2
These 2 certificates together will give you the full CCNA 200-125 Certification.

Finally, a CCNA certification is valid for three years, after which time it will then be necessary for you to re-certify. At this point or sooner, you may choose to progress to the next tier of Cisco certification, the most popular being CCNP.

Key Benefits

  • Most importantly, give yourself the best possible chance of passing your CCNA exams.
  • Also, enjoy new employment or promotion opportunities and the correspondingly higher salary that comes with CCNA certification.
  • You’ll also develop a strong skills base and understanding of Cisco networking that you can then apply to your current and future jobs.
  • Stand out to your employer because you have the initiative and drive to push your career forward for the benefit of yourself and the company.
  • In conclusion, qualifying means you can later progress to higher Cisco qualifications and in turn, earn even more money.

Why choose us?

  • Importantly, you’ll get a manageable timetable that doesn’t interfere with your work life.
  • All lectures are delivered live in order to provide you with an interactive, classroom-like experience. Therefore, you can ask your lecturer questions in real-time and discuss topics with your classmates.
  • We record all our lectures so that even if you miss one you can catch up. In fact, the live online lectures are generally held at weekends for most flexibility.
  • Also, you will use a virtual study platform called Moodle to help you organise your studies.
  • Real lecturers from British universities teach you, thus giving you the highest quality of education an online course can offer.
  • Likewise, the College of Contract Management is accredited by the CIOB, CMI, CICES, CIArb and Pearson Education, among others.

I would recommend the college and the CMP course

Before joining the lectures I had my unknown fears that how would I understand the subject and study materials because of online lectures. But really I appreciate the lecturers who made lectures so descriptive, explanatory and to easily understand. During the lecture I like one thing most that after explaining each topic they put a question for us to know our concentration and understanding towards the lecture. I would recommend the college and the Chartered Membership Programme.
