What you will do in this class

In each course, Cisco Networking Academy students will learn technical concepts with the support of interactive media and apply and practice this knowledge through a series of hands-on and simulated activities that reinforce their learning:

  • Students complete a basic procedural lab, followed by configuration, implementation, and troubleshooting labs.
  • Cisco Packet Tracer activities allow students to model and analyze routing processes that may be difficult to visualize or understand and practice their skills within simulated networks.
  • Quizzes, skills assessments, chapter exams, and practice exams provide feedback as students advance through the curriculum.Student working at computer
