Live Online Programme
CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) 200-125, ICND1 100-105 and ICND2 200-205 Syllabus
Total Course Fee – £690
No. of Lessons – 8
Duration 8 Weeks – Part-time


Cisco is a trusted leader in networking technology and the Certification provided by the Cisco CCNA Programme is recognised internationally. Any Cisco certification obtained will therefore always be an investment in the learner’s IT career.

Companies using Cisco routers and switches will often seek out IT professionals who hold CCNA certification.

The CCNA certification is also required in order to progress to other Cisco certifications, for example, the CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional) which is at a more advanced level.

This course teaches learners how to install, configure, implement, operate, analyse network security, 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 Networks).

Our CCNA programme consists of 8 live-on-line lessons scheduled to take place out of normal working hours allowing you to ‘learn while you earn!’.

There are two certified courses included in this programme:
1. 100-105: ICND1
2. 200-205: ICND2
A combination of these two certificates will give you the full CCNA 200-125 Certification.

A CCNA certification is valid for a period of three years, after which time re-certification will be necessary. At this point, learners can choose to progress to the next tier of Cisco certification such as the CCNP.

Key Benefits

Studying this course will provide learners with a strong knowledge and skills base from which to build a networking career.

Our focus is preparing you for the real world of IT Networking by providing both academic and practical skills. We provide a remote group revision and discussion forum at the end of each lecture.
Live-online interactive lectures are held outside of the normal working hours

Our lecturers are leading industry experts within the CCNA field and have worked for leading companies in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

We provide an online system (MOODLE) where all your course lecture slides and videos are stored electronically. These can be accessed by you 24 hours a day providing you with the opportunity to rewind and review all of the course materials at your own leisure.

Obtaining the CCNA certification will not only provide a great addition to the learner’s CV but will also boost the learner’s desirability within the workplace and in future networking roles.

The CCNA certification is required in order to undertake other Cisco certifications, so will provide a good base from which to obtain further qualifications.
