Why choose Ranken for CCNA training?

Composed of a combination of computer desktop operating systems, Local Area Networking (LAN), Wide Area Networking (WAN) and microcomputer hardware, Ranken’s four-semester evening program leads to a Certificate in Computer Networking Technology.

The first two semesters of the program focus on preparing students to become A+ Certified technicians. The curriculum covers installation, configuration and troubleshooting of desktop computer systems.

During the second year, students are introduced to network devices and how they fit into the network. Using Cisco routers, students learn how to implement routing among the LAN protocol suites and across WANs. With the skills gained in this program, students are prepared to design, build and maintain small and medium-sized networks.

At the completion of the second year, students are eligible to earn Cisco® Certified Network Associate (CCNA™) certification.

For students interested in furthering their education, these courses can be credited toward the Bachelor of Science in Applied Management (BSAM) degree.
