Course Description

The Cisco Networking Academy CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum is designed for students who are seeking entry-level ICT jobs or plan to pursue more specialized ICT skills. CCNA Routing and Switching provides comprehensive coverage of networking topics, from fundamentals to advanced applications and services, with opportunities for hands-on practical experience and career skills development.

The course is divided into 4 modules:

  • Introduction to Networks
  • Routing and Switching Essentials
  • Scaling Networks
  • Connecting Networks


30-60 hours per module of instructor led training (usually two – 3 hours sessions a week – about 10 months to complete all 4 modules in the course)


  • Learn the basics of routing, switching, and advanced technologies to prepare for the Cisco CCENT and CCNA certification exams, networking related degree programs, and entry-level networking careers.
  • Emphasize critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and the practical application of skills
  • Help students develop critical thinking and complex problem solving skills with hands-on labs and Cisco Packet Tracer simulation-based learning activities
