As a Cisco Academy, The Open University can offer students the opportunity to study the
Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) programme. Cisco is a worldwide leader in
networking for the internet, and students will use the latest online CCNA curriculum for most
of their study. This course will provide them with the knowledge, understanding, and skills
needed to configure a LAN/WAN using Cisco equipment. They will be provided with hands-on

If students successfully complete this course, they will be able to go on and gain the industry
recognised certification by taking the CCNA examination.
