“To advance their careers, many individuals in the IT field find they need to acquire additional certifications. One of the certifications most sought after by employers is the CCNA,” said Troy Kruse, director of Accelerate by Westwood.
The Cisco Academy: CCNA Essentials course is taught by Cisco-certified professionals who train students to install industry-relevant operating systems and apply industry-standard tools and techniques to manage networks. The coursework is designed to fit the needs of working professionals including a combination of on-campus training during weekends and lab hours to be completed in an online environment. Upon successful completion of the coursework students will receive a voucher to pay for their CCNA exam, worth $250.
“Although there is a lot of competition for Cisco training programs, including one-day boot camps and one-year degree programs, we believe Accelerate provides the best solution with intensive hands-on training combined with lab time to truly master the skills needed to pass the certification exam,” continued Kruse. “Plus, the program costs less than many others currently being offered.”
The Cisco Academy: CCNA Essentials course is the first of many to be offered through Accelerate by Westwood. It is initially offered only in Colorado, Virginia and southern California with the goal of expanding to other markets within the year.
