Cisco Academy – an integrated approach to learning

Posted in Blog

The purpose of the Cisco Networking Academy is to increase access to education and career opportunities and at the same time to train enough professionals that the ICT industry needs.

From a humble beginning, the Cisco Academy has developed into the largest classroom in the world, which is responsible for the development of the future ICT professionals in its community.

The Academy works under the auspices of the company Cisco Systems and represents a partnership between educational institutions, industry, governmental institutions and non-profit organizations. It is a global education program on networking technologies, which today operates in more than 165 countries around the world and is annually attended by more than 1,000,000 learners. All students around the world have access to the same high-quality multimedia materials, practical laboratory work, online exams and quality instructors.

How did it all begin?

The formation of program was in 1997 prompted by schools that were successfully linking education and industry. In educating they used donated networking equipment. Instructions and courses then developed into a more formalized form of education - Cisco network academy. Today, the Academy programs provide a way of additional training or retraining. They can be carried out in addition to work, studying, during working hours and also within full-time education.

Different routes to the destination

Training in the Cisco Networking Academy is an alternative to shorter industrial programs, designed for experienced engineers who already have a strong background. The advantage of intensive courses, which typically take place within one or two weeks, is that they enable acquisition or renewal of specific knowledge in a very short time. They are suitable for those who will be able to use the gained knowledge immediately at work and in this way consolidate the knowledge on a long term basis.

The content of the programs do not differ, since they both follow the same objectives, i.e. to obtain a high level of knowledge that participants can prove in the final exam at an authorized exam center, which issues internationally recognized Cisco certificate.
