CCNA Academy Course


Cisco CCNA Academy course :  2017
Online Blended course (classroom lectures, online material and assessment) over 20 weeks


This course prepares participants for the cisco CCNA exam (200-120 CCNA) or the two exams ICND1 and 2 (100-101 and 200-101). Classes are held once a week in the evening over a 20 week period.

Students of this course will receive access to the Cisco Networking Academy via ITT, providing online courseware and assessments. Students will also have access to the cisco hardware labs at ITT.

When students complete and pass their online assessments and hardware laboratory exams, they will be entitled to a certificate from the Cisco academy, stating that they have completed and passed the CCNA course under ITT's supervision. Separately the student can arrange to sit the official Cisco exam. 

The following outlines details surrounding the course:


20 Weekly classroom sessions.In total there are four modules, each with a supervised end of module assessment.There is also a practical hardware lab exam at the end of each module (except the first). Students must pass all of these exams to receive their certification from the cisco academy. 

The next CCNA academy course will run in early January 2017 and we are taking applications now at the following link:

We will also be running CCNA boot camps (one week day time courses) over the summer months. If you are interested in this or require further details please email  or fill in the contact us form at the end of this page.

Note: Students may enroll in advance to enable preparatory access to the Cisco Academy and online material


The classroom time includes lectures to cover the more difficult course material, Packet tracer labs to enhance the theory, Cisco hardware practice labs to prepare students for the hardware exam, online end of module supervised assessments (four x 1.5 hour exams), end of module supervised hardware labs (3 x 2 hours) and Mock CCNA exam.



Students will receive access to the cisco academy on-line material which they will progress through at home. Online lessons include integrated assessment material. On completion of a lesson, students will receive access to an online lesson assessment which can be completed in their own time. The purpose of the lesson assessment is to prepare them for the supervised end-of-module exam which will ultimately contribute to their score. 






Students carry out chapter assessments at home, and have supervised end of module assessments in class, as well as a mock CCNA exam. Lab exams are based on hardware and are supervised.



Cisco Academy certification available once all exams passed. Students can separately arrange to sit the cisco CCNA exam at an approved centre.
