Technology is changing the world! Connecting billions of devices in The Frost improves the way we live and work!

The CISCO-Academy at "Institute of Defense "Professor Tsvetan Lazarov" offers training in the CCNA course (Cisco Certified Network Associate – Certified by Cisco Network Assistant) Routing and Switching. The course program includes four modules, each lasting 70 hours.

CCNA Routing and Switching's learning content provides knowledge of the theoretical basics of networks and network devices, and the skills to work with them. Students are trained to install and configure routers and switches on local and larger networks, detect and fix problems, optimize networks, and take care of security and protection from attacks.

The program of the course does not require preliminary knowledge in the design, construction, administration and maintenance of computer networks. It is necessary for students to use (reading with understanding) English at technical level, because the educational material and the tests are in English, and the lectures and exercises are held in Bulgarian.
