Cisco CCNA

About

As the Cisco regional academy for Malta, STC Higher Education has been providing CCNA courses locally since 2003. 

Earning a Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching Certification is the best way for you to prepare for a successful career in networking. 
As Enterprises migrate toward controller-based architectures, the role and skills required of a core network engineer are evolving and more vital than ever. To prepare for this network transition, the CCNA Routing and Switching certification will not only prepare you with the knowledge of foundational technologies but ensure you stay relevant with skill sets needed for the adoption of next generation technologies.


The Cisco Certified Network Associate course covers a comprehensive range of networking topics, from fundamentals to advanced applications and services, while providing opportunities for hands-on practical experience and soft-skills development.
 

The curriculum consists of four modules (semesters):

  1. Introduction to Networks (Network Fundamentals)

Following a top-down approach, the first course introduces applications and application services very early in the curriculum to provide a foundation. Advanced technologies (voice, video, wireless, and security) are also introduced.

  1. Routing and Switching (Routing Protocols and Concepts)

  2. Scaling Networks (LAN Switching and Wireless)

Routing and switching topics and concepts are grouped to allow for a higher level of flexibility in the course delivery. All routing topics are covered in the Routing Protocols and Concepts course and all switching topics are covered in the LAN Switching and Wireless course. These courses can be taught either in sequence or simultaneously.

  1. Connecting Networks (Accessing the WAN)

The last course, Accessing the Wan, thoroughly covers all WAN technologies.

 

All 4 modules include advanced and challenging labs and activities which encapsulate hands-on sessions on actual hardware (Cisco Routers and Switches) as well as making use of the Packet Tracer network virtualization software. These coherently allow students to visualize and gain an in-depth hands-on experience with the application protocols and services introduced in the course.

Short Courses

Since short courses are normally beginners courses most do not have specific entry requirements. With regards to the programming short courses a basic understanding of this field is recommended. A good level of English is essential.

IT Professional Courses

Entry requirements for these courses depend on the course in question. Normally those who apply for such courses have a number of years of work experience within management or IT.

If you do not have the necessary requirement we also provide you with foundation courses that will provide you with the entry requirement for your diplomas.
When can I apply for a course and when are the closing applications?
Applications are open year round and normally close 2 months in advance of course commencement for degree courses and one month in advance for other courses. Some of our courses fill up fast and have waiting lists; we therefore, suggest that you apply as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
When is the course commencement date?
The ICCS, DC, BSc 2nd year and BSc final year start in October. While the MSc starts in January. Short courses normally start every January and June. IT Professional Courses normally run 3-4 times a year. Extra courses might be organised during the year, depending on applications, so if you are raring to go send us an e-mail and we’ll tell you if you are in luck!! Check the STC Calendar for the exact starting date.
I want to join the degree programme but I will be unavailable for an extensive period of time during my studies?
The education programmes we offer are extremely flexible and modular in form. This means that generally speaking students can plan their own study time. If there is a particular event in your life, which requires a period of time where you will have to be absent from classes, talk to us (ideally much in advance!) and we will be able to guide you! In case, of unexpected circumstances students are able to apply for an extension which will then need to be approved.
