New York State Approved CTE Program
The Cisco Networking Academy helps students prepare for careers in Computer Networking, Computer Science, and Information Technology. Students who successfully complete a sequence of four Cisco program classes are eligible to take the CCENT and CCNA certification tests to become Cisco Certified Entry Network Technicians and Cisco Certified Network Associates. Currently, there are over four hundred students in the Cisco program and we expect the program to continue to grow.

Networking for Home and Small Businesses
Uses a SOHO network to introduce some basic networking concepts such as cabling, addressing, wireless, and security, and teaches students how to plan, deploy, and troubleshoot a small network.
Working at a Small-to-Medium Business or ISP
The second course uses small and medium business and enterprise sized networks to take concepts such as IP addressing, switching, routing, WAN technologies, and security to the next level.
Introducing Routing and Switching in the Enterprise
As the complexity and size of the network grows, associated concepts such as advanced routing protocols, enterprise switching, and network performance are introduced.
Designing and Supporting Computer Networks
Consolidates many of the concepts and introduces elements of network design, equipment selection and configuration, and LAN and WAN addressing. An integrated case study presents critical thinking scenarios to help students develop skills such as analyzing business objectives, determining technical requirements and constraints, planning timelines and resources, and preparing and delivering customer presentations.
