The Networking Technology program at Central Montco Technical High School is intended to meet the needs of the technology industry both now and in the future and with the Internet growing continually, there are many opportunities available to Networking Technology students. Students can earn CompTIA Network+ certification as well as a CCNA (Certified Cisco Network Associate) certificate. With an education in infrastructure-level networking, students are highly sought after by employers in all areas of business and education.
Each student starts the program with an introduction to networking that is the CompTIA Network+ program. The technology community identifies CompTIA Network+ as the perfect entry into a networking career. Topics of study include networking basics with the CompTIA Network+ Program, routers and routing basics, switching basics and inter-network routing and WAN technologies. Upon completing the Network+ curriculum, students move into the Cisco Networking Academy course work.
CCNA® is a comprehensive curriculum that includes four separate modules. These modules cover the learning objectives of the CCNA certification exam, which is the first step in a Cisco career certification path. The curriculum emphasizes the use of decision-making and problem-solving techniques to resolve networking issues. Students learn how to install and configure Cisco switches and routers in local and wide-area networks using various protocols, provide Level 1 troubleshooting service, and improve network performance and security. Additionally, training is provided in the proper care, maintenance, and use of networking software tools and equipment.
