BREMERTON — Olympic College’s “Computer Information Systems 270 — CCNA I” is the first in a series of four courses which prepares students for passing the exam for the Cisco Certified Network Associate technology certification.
Certification can help launch students into careers as computer systems analysts.
This series of courses can be completed in either three or four academic quarters and includes the option of day or evening scheduled hybrid courses (half on-ground and half on-line). Cisco students typically meet twice per week and complete almost all of their graded coursework online or at home.
According to U.S. News and World Report, significant growth is expected in this high-wage, high-demand field.
Students transferring in from Bremerton High School, North Kitsap High School, South Kitsap High School, or Klahowya Secondary School, where the Cisco Networking Academy curriculum “Discovery” is taught, may receive college credits for one or more of their secondary/high-school Cisco courses.
