SPC to offer four CISCO Networking Academy classes starting Jan. 16

 

REESE CENTER – South Plains College Workforce Development will offer four CISCO Networking Academy classes starting Jan. 16.

 

Raymund Elizondo, program coordinator and professor of Industrial Manufacturing/Emerging Technologies, will be the instructor for all four courses.

 

CCNA 1 – Introduction to Networks will be offered from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. from Jan. 16 through May 10 on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Room 452 of Building Four. The textbook “Network Fundamentals, CCNA Exploration Labs and Study Guide Second Edition, will be used. The cost of the course is $583 and participants will earn 96 hours or 9.6 continuing education units.

 

This introductory course covers networking architecture, structure and functions. It introduces the principles and structures of IP addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media and operations to provide a foundation for the curriculum. At the end of the course, students will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configuration on routers and switches as well as implement IP addressing schemes.

 

CCNA 2 – Routing and Switching Essentials will be offered from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. from Jan. 16 through May 10 on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Room 452 of Building Four. The textbook, “Routing Protocols and Concepts, CCNA Exploration Labs and Study Guide Second Edition,” will be used. The cost of the course is $583 and participants will earn 96 hours or 9.6 continuing education units.

 

This intermediate course describes the architecture, components and basic operation of routers as well as explains the basic principles of routing and routing protocols. It also provides an in-depth understanding of how switches operate and are implemented in the LAN environment for small and large networks. At the end of the course, students will be able to configure and maintain routers and switches, resolve common issues with routing protocols, virtual LANS and virtual inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

 

CCNA 3 – Scaling Networks will be offered from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. from Jan. 16 through May 10 on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Room 452 of Building Four. The cost of the course is $583 and participants will earn 96 hours or 9.6 continuing education units.

 

Scaling Networks (Scan) covers the architecture, components and operations of routers and switches in larger and more complex networks. Students learn how to configure routers and switches using advanced protocols. At the end of the course, students will be able to configure advanced routing and switching, resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP and STP in IP networks, implement a WLAN in a small-to-medium network.

 

CCNA 4 – Connecting Networks will be offered from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. from Jan. 16 through May 10 on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Room 452 of Building Four. The cost of the course is $583 and participants will earn 96 hours or 9.6 continuing education units.

 

This advanced class will focus on WAN technologies and network services required by converged application in a complex network. It will enable students to understand the selection criteria of network devices and WAN technologies to meet network requirements. At the end of the course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot network devices, resolve common issues with data link protocols resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP and STP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks as well as implement virtual private network (VPN) operations in a complex network and implement security best practices.
