CCNA Program Overview
Cisco CCNA version 7 is a professional networking program for students aiming to excel in a networking career. This program is currently one of the most powerful qualification requirements required by major & well established organisations (not limited to Fortune 500 companies) in Zimbabwe and across the globe.
This program is a 3-course CCNA series and develops a comprehensive foundation for designing, securing, operating, and troubleshooting modern computer networks, on the scale from small business networks to enterprise networks, with an emphasis on hands-on learning and essential career skills like problem solving and collaboration.
You will be able to develop a working knowledge of IP addressing schemes, implement network security, you’ll be able to perform technical configurations for routers and switches. You will also learn to configure and troubleshoot enterprise networks, and learn to identify and protect against cybersecurity threats.
Series of 3 courses:
- Introduction to Networks (ITN)
- Switching, Routing, and Wireless Essentials (SRWE)
- Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation (ENSA)
No prerequisites required. After completing all three CCNA courses, you are ready to take the CCNA Certification.
You’ll learn these core skills:
- Build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes.
- Configure routers, switches, and end devices to provide access to local and remote network resources and to enable end-to-end connectivity between remote devices.
- Develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills using real equipment and Cisco Packet Tracer.
- Configure and troubleshoot connectivity a small network using security best practices.
- Designed for Distance Learning
A distance learning option is available for this course. Lab activities can be completed with Packet Tracer if lab equipment is not available.

This first course in the CCNA curriculum introduces the architectures, models, protocols, and networking elements that connect users, devices, applications and data through the Internet and across modern computer networks -including IP addressing and Ethernet fundamentals.
This second course in the CCNA curriculum focuses on switching technologies and router operations that support small-to-medium business networks and includes wireless local area networks (WLAN) and security concepts.
This third CCNA course describes the architectures and considerations related to designing, securing, operating, and troubleshooting enterprise networks –including wide area network (WAN) technologies & quality of service (QoS) mechanisms for secure remote access, along with software-defined networking, virtualization, & automation concepts supporting network digitization.
