I.T. Certification Program

The worldwide use of Computer and Internet as a powerful means of communication has undeniably reached to its near peak that ignorance to such excuses no one. Thanks to the modern-day technology, where everything has been speedily facilitated, making its wave to the most remarkable path in the history of Technological Advancement.

While a lot of expectation is constantly laid on the overwhelming outpour of new inventions in Information Technology, more and more Industry-Standard Certifications swift their way to a never-ending demand here and abroad. It seems just like yesterday when all we need are diploma and transcript in order to find a job. How time swiftly flies and it becomes a lot different now. In this advanced era of Information Technology, Certification is a Universal Quest. Certainly, Certification gives an instant sense of reliability and credibility as far as skills, knowledge and abilities are concern on the part of the applicant or worker. IT workers with Industry –Standard Certifications are the top priorities for hiring not only in America, Europe, Middle East and Asia but also in all parts of the world. And that is the reason why too many IT people crave for as many certifications as they can, that they can't seem to balance on the circus high-wire while juggling 2 or more courses at a time.

Yes, that's how important these certifications are nowadays that before you desire and plan to have one the demand is already there at your doorstep.

How can we pull off with such a difficult situation without falling into the trap of missing what is most important? When this kind of trend swarm in, all too often the wrong ones take the highest priority - ornamental courses with hollow promises so to say.

Asian Institute of Computer Studies (AICS), in its continuous pursuit of top-rated certification courses, comes up with the matchless perfect choice in the field of Information Technology – The CISCO NETWORKING ACADEMY PROGRAM.

CISCO Networking Academy Program

The Cisco CCNA Exploration curriculum provides an integrated and comprehensive coverage of networking topics, from fundamentals to advanced applications and services, while providing opportunities for hands-on practical experience and soft-skills development. The curriculum teaches networking based on technology, covering networking concepts using a top-down, theoretical, and integrated approach – from network applications to the network protocols and services provided to those applications by the lower layers of the network.

CCNA Exploration is designed for students with advanced problem solving and analytical skills. The curriculum offers a comprehensive and theoretical learning experience for analytical students, and uses language that aligns well with engineering concepts. Interactive activities are embedded in the curriculum, along with detailed, theoretical content. Advanced labs build critical thinking and problem solving skills and encourage exploration and research.

CCNA Exploration can be delivered as an independent curriculum or integrated into a broader course of study, such as degree programs in IT, engineering, math, or science. While primarily designed for postsecondary institutions, CCNA Exploration is appropriate for students at many education levels if they have the required skills, and if the instructional approach complements their learning style and educational goals. CCNA Exploration helps prepare students for entry-level career opportunities, continuing education, and globally-recognized Cisco CCNA certification.

CCNA Exploration 1: Network Fundamentals

This course introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. It uses the OSI and TCP layered models to examine the nature and roles of protocols and services at the application, network, data link, and physical layers. The principles and structure of IP addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum. Labs use a "model Internet" to allow students to analyze real data without affecting production networks. Packet Tracer (PT) activities help students analyze protocol and network operation and build small networks in a simulated environment. At the end of the course, students build simple LAN topologies by applying basic principles of cabling, performing basic configurations of network devices such as routers and switches, and implementing IP addressing schemes.

CCNA Exploration 2: Routing Protocols and Concepts

This course describes the architecture, components, and operation of routers, and explains the principles of routing and routing protocols. Students analyze, configure, verify, and troubleshoot the primary routing protocols RIPv1, RIPv2, EIGRP, and OSPF. By the end of this course, students will be able to recognize and correct common routing issues and problems. Students complete a basic procedural lab, followed by basic configuration, implementation, and troubleshooting labs in each chapter. Packet Tracer activities reinforce new concepts, and allow students to model and analyze routing processes that may be difficult to visualize or understand.

Prerequisites:Network Fundamentals

CCNA Exploration 3: LAN Switching and Wireless

This course provides a comprehensive, theoretical, and practical approach to learning the technologies and protocols needed to design and implement a converged switched network. Students learn about the hierarchical network design model and how to select devices for each layer. The course explains how to configure a switch for basic functionality and how to implement Virtual LANs, VTP, and Inter-VLAN routing in a converged network. The different implementations of Spanning Tree Protocol in a converged network are presented, and students develop the knowledge and skills necessary to implement a WLAN in a small-to-medium network.

Prerequisites: Network Fundamentals

CCNA Exploration 4: Accessing the WAN

This course discusses the WAN technologies and network services required by converged applications in enterprise networks. The course uses the Cisco Network Architecture to introduce integrated network services and explains how to select the appropriate devices and technologies to meet network requirements. Students learn how to implement and configure common data link protocols and how to apply WAN security concepts, principles of traffic, access control, and addressing services. Finally, students learn how to detect, troubleshoot, and correct common enterprise network implementation issues. Prerequisites: Network Fundamentals, Routing Protocols and Concepts, and LAN Switching and Wireless
