Cabrillo College offers the Cisco Networking Academy CCNA courses courses, but with a more in-depth study of the information, including additional theory and concepts, more in-depth analysis, additional assessments, and advanced lab assignments. It is our goal not only to help students obtain their CCNA, CCNP and other certifications, but to help them develop the knowledge and skills to live up to that certification title. We want to make CCNAs, CCNPs, etc., not just people who can pass the the exams. For these reasons, all of our CCNA and CCNP courses teach information beyond that of the certification, including college and university level material.
Many High Schools and ROP programs offer the Cisco CCNA level courses. In order to attract and accommodate students who have taken the Cisco CCNA courses at other schools which primarily teach to the Cisco curriculum, we have created an articulation process that will allow students to articulate these courses directly to the CIS program, and with additional work, towards the Computer Networking and System Administration program.
Students who have taken any of the four Cisco CCNA courses at another school will receive the following credit towards the CIS degree/certificate, but not for the Computer Networking and System Administration program:
CIS 181A : 3 units for Cisco CCNA 1
CIS 182A : 3 units for Cisco CCNA 2
CIS 183A : 3 units for Cisco CCNA 3 and Cisco CCNA 4 combined
CIS 181A, 182A, and 183A are not directly articulated to the Computer Networking and System Administration program but can be applied towards degree/certificate options in the CIS program.
If a student wishes to apply any of these courses towards the Computer Networking and System Administration program, they will need to take the following CIS 160 independent studies courses to receive the additional information required by Cabrillo College and included in Cabrillo's Cisco CCNA courses:
CIS 181A, plus the completion of CIS 160A: 1 unit, will count as CIS 81
CIS 182A, plus the completion of CIS 160B: 1 unit, will count as CIS 82
CIS 183A, plus the completion of CIS 160C: 1 unit, will count as CIS 83
