Dynamic Routing, Security and Network Services (CCNA 3)

Online course Upcoming
10 weeks part time Instructor led

Build your career in networking and IT security with this deeper look into routing, networking, security and automation.

IT security is important for any organization, to prevent unauthorized access to assets such as computers, networks, and data. The digital transformation, accelerated by Covid19, has increased the need for skilled IT and networking professionals.

Routers are key devices in the management of network traffic, not only in the local area network but also in the greater wide area networks spread across the globe. Configuring these devices requires not only consideration for which traffic should receive preference, but also on the related security aspects. Modern networks also need to incorporate aspects of virtualization and allow for a level of autonomy via network automation.

This bootcamp covers the third of three courses the Cisco CCNA 7 curriculum, and after completing the bootcamp you will be ready to take the globally recognized and respected CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) certification. If you want to pursue a career in CyberSecurity and give yourself a solid foundation within networking and IT security this 10-week bootcamp is for you.

About the course

This course describes the architecture, components, operations, and security to scale for large, complex networks, including wide area network (WAN) technologies.
