The Skills Academy – Cisco Networking

With an emphasis on understanding how networking works, this five-day Skills Academy workshop is perfect for those wishing to build their knowledge in this specialist subject. Covering networking fundamentals, LAN, WAN and wireless technologies, students will gain practical experience by building and troubleshooting their own network pod. Although this workshop is based on Cisco, the principles students learn can easily be applied to other vendor network environments.

Skills Academy workshops offer a better way of learning by building the skills and confidence required to work in a real world IT environment. With a more time efficient and ‘hands on’ approach to training, resulting in hundreds of satisfied students, businesses have benefited from improved IT productivity and a rapid return on investment.
