Cisco Networking Academy
In co-operation with the Cisco
Systems company, CARNet started in November 2000 the Cisco
Networking Academy, a unique educational program for networking experts.
The program trains attendants to design, develop and maintain computer
networks for local, national and global needs of companies and institutions.
In the world, Cisco Networking Academy started to operate in 1997 with the aim of overcoming the increasing shortage of networking experts and to support universities in maintaining their own networks.
Currently more than 80,000 students are attending the Cisco Networking Academy in 84 countries of the world.
The Academy is intended for everyone older than 16 and especially for secondary school children, undergraduate students and those who are considering changing profession. Training by means of practical work is performed using the latest network communication equipment and personal computers. The backbone of theoretical education consists of multi-media educational material available to attendants via the Internet. After completing the program the attendants can sit for an exam in order to obtain an internationally acknowledged certificate CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate).
The first group of attendants is being trained at CARNet, and an equivalent curriculum is planned at another 12 institutions in Croatia. The first partnership agreements have been signed with the Technical College in Zagreb and Polytechnics in Split.
