Cisco Certified Network Associate or CCNA is a first-level Cisco Career certification, which is considered a fundamental certification program/course for network support engineers, network administrators, and network specialists, which is designed to provide them with the basic knowledge about networks routing and switching, which helps increase the value of the networks and its efficiency, as well as optimize its cost.
CCNA course, in brief, validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks.
So, to facilitate the access to the knowledge and technical skills offered by this certification program to our student members and colleagues, IEEE AlexSB organized CCNA course, which is the first long-term course organized by the branch. the course started at the beginning of the second term of the academic year 2013/2014, inside the campus of the faculty of Engineering, Alexandria University.
The course was meant to cover some basics about networks that qualify to the CCNA certification program, to present an opportunity for the students to get this certification, and to help them discover the career options in the field of networks.
The Course was instructed by Ms. Mariam Wagih, an ICT Engineer at Bibliotheca Alexandrina. She is a Faculty of Engineering, Alexandria University graduate, class of 2010, Communications & Electronics department. Ms. Mariam has studied and completed many courses related to the Networks field (CCNA, CCNP Routing, CCNA Wireless, CCWA, IT essentials, CompTIA n+ & CompTIA a+), and the Communications field (GSM, GPRS, UMTS, LTE, WiMAX and PSTN).
