What you will study in the Cisco Networking (CCNA) course from The Open University UK
This part will provide you with a strong theoretical and practical grounding in all aspects of networking, with a particular focus on local area networks (LANs). It will introduce you to the key networking hardware and software, and give you your first insight into the importance of internet addressing.
Routers and switches are used extensively in wide area and local area networks. Their basic function is to forward data packets across networks and between networks. Part 2 focuses on how you can configure routers to operate in computer networks as well as their switch counterpart.
Each part consists of a number of chapters. Most chapters have an online exam, and each of the two parts has an online final exam.
