CISCO Network Security

As communication systems become ever more complex, the skills needed to design, support, and secure them also increase. In Francis Tuttle’s CISCO Network Security program, students acquire the knowledge and skills they will need to provide and maintain the level of security that modern work demands. Students learn to configure routers and switches, maintain wide area networks, and develop processes essential for adequate system security. After receiving the training and education included in this program, students will be eligible to take a variety of   certification exams,  such as the CompTIA A+, Cisco Certified Entry Network Associate (CCENT), CompTIA Security+, and then will have the option to choose Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA), Cisco Certified Network Associate Security (CCNAS), and/or Cyber OPS.
