Course Overview
The courses in the CCNA Version 7.0 curriculum help students develop 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.

The second year comprises two parts or semesters:

Part 1: Routing, Switching and Wireless Essentials (SRWE) part 2, part 1 being covered in the first year with Cisco Introduction to Networks.

Part 2: Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation (ENSA),

The learning takes place through a combination of Hands-on labs and Cisco Packet Tracer network simulation activities. There are videos, activities, and quizzes to reinforce learning.

Part 1 - SRWE: Switching, Routing, and Wireless Essentials
The 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.
By the end of this course students learn key switching and routing concepts. They can perform basic network configuration and troubleshooting, identify and mitigate LAN security threats, and configure and secure a basic WLAN.

Part 2 - Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation (ENSA)
The third course in the CCNAv7 curriculum describes the architectures and considerations related to designing, securing, operating, and troubleshooting enterprise networks. This course covers wide area network (WAN) technologies and quality of service (QoS) mechanisms used for secure remote access. ENSA also introduces software-defined networking, virtualization, and automation concepts that support the digitalization of networks. Students gain skills to configure and troubleshoot enterprise networks, and learn to identify and protect against cybersecurity threats. They are introduced to network management tools and learn key concepts of software-defined networking, including controller-based architectures and how application programming interfaces (APIs) enable network automation.
Classes are based upon the multimedia online curriculum supplied by Cisco, which is supported by tutor-led teaching and practical lab sessions. Each of the two semesters (ITN and SRWE) are assessed by a theory final examination, through an online assessment .
There are no formal entry requirements for this course, however this is an intermediate to advanced level course and candidates would benefit from having some knowledge and experience with computers and/or hardware and software.
By the end of the CCNA course series, students gain practical, hands-on experience preparing them for the CCNA certification exam and career-ready skills for associate-level roles in the Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) industry.
