Cisco CCENT and CCNA certification exams
Cisco Systems®, world leader in Information and Communications Technology - ICT has put together the program CCNA® (Cisco Certified Networking Associate), unique by its content and structure.
CCNA® (Cisco Certified Networking Associate) is composed by a theoretical and practical course. At ICT Foundation, Constanta, Romania, the training process is personalized for every student. The theoretical part is presented in English and it can be accessed on-line. This is presented rhythmically and documented in the training program conducted under the direction of a teacher/instructor. The practical part takes place in the Cisco Academy laboratory of the ICT Foundation, Constanta, Romania, which is equipped with computers, software, simulators and proper Cisco Systems equipment. The course cover the networking basics, from Local Area Network (LAN) and Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) to Wide Area Network (WAN).
The course is addresseed to high school and university students, as well as people working in operating, designing, building and maintaining computer networks and modern data communication systems. The course is also recommended for those students who choose interdisciplinary training.
Since the '80's networks, which used coaxial thin cable and which were used mostly for one building, nowadays it has reached a moment when computers, generally intelligent systems, not connected to networks or Internet don't exists. The technologies used for data communication are more complex, the percentage of the people using computers has been exponential during the last decade. In fact, all activity fields use, for various purposes, network computers. Cisco defines the Internet of Everything (IoE) as "bringing together people, process, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before - turning information into actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity for businesses, individuals, and countries".
In order to ensure professional data communication services it has been proved that professional equipment isn't enough. Qualified specialists are needed with high quality training.
A study conducted by IDC IDC requested by Cisco Systems shows what the situation in the workforce in ICT (Information and Communication Technology). Career development of our graduates is a goal to which we contribute by carrying out a high quality of teaching, appropriate for all activities of the Foundation for promoting ICT (ICT Foundation), Constanta, Romania. Constanta.
Cisco® has created a new version of CCNA®, CCNA v6.X version - CCNA® Routing and Switching, four semesters, in response to the requests of administrators, instructors and students/trainees in the context of the current development and in the immediate future of the Society.
