A Glimpse into Our Comprehensive Program: Key Modules & Details


Network Foundations:

Kickstart your IT journey by exploring the roadmap to becoming a Network Engineer and grasping essential IT architectures. Delve into foundational IT and networking concepts, including the OSI Model, Ethernet, VLANs, TCP/UDP, and topologies. Master IP addressing and subnetting, transitioning from IPv4 basics to an introduction to IPv6. Discover the intricacies of Ethernet, LANs, and switching, including hands-on cable creation. Dive deeper into IP routing in both LANs and WANs, learning about static and dynamic routing. Explore full-stack networking, covering security, wireless networking, voice over IP, and virtualization. Finally, immerse in real-world network engineering, acquainting yourself with vital tools, technologies, and simulation practices.


Modern Project Portfolio:

The Network Engineering Immersive (NEI) Program transforms students into proficient network engineers through a blend of theoretical instruction and hands-on practice. Spanning three weeks, the curriculum has them undertake three major IT projects. They initiate with the Planning Phase, crafting project diagrams and a comprehensive Statement of Work. This evolves into the Execution Phase where plans become tangible solutions. In the Controlling Phase, meticulous testing ensures quality, while addressing customer needs. Concluding with the Closing Phase, students present a holistic Full Stack Network, encapsulating facets like routing and network security, readying them for real-world IT project management.


Simulating Complex Networks:

This module emphasizes the practical validation of students' networking skills. Initially, participants undergo preparation labs designed to fortify the knowledge they'll need for the Skills Qualification Check (SQC). During the SQC week, students, within an 8-hour timeframe on an online lab platform, must achieve at least 80% completion and resolve troubleshooting challenges to demonstrate their hands-on proficiency. Beyond technical skills, the module also focuses on career development. Through the Career Workshop #1, students refine their job applications, learn personal branding, and become adept at tailoring their resumes and answering common interview questions, ensuring readiness for the job market.


Network Associate Certification Prep
:

The module delves deep into bolstering foundational knowledge for aspiring network engineers. It initiates with an exploration of essential security concepts vital in today's interconnected digital landscape. This section underscores the importance of safeguarding networked systems using advanced techniques like VPNs, DHCP snooping, and port security. Next, students are introduced to the evolving domain of network automation, including controller-based networking, REST-based APIs, and tools like Puppet and Ansible. Preparing for the exam becomes a pivotal point, where students not only get test strategies and a practice session but also prepare for pertinent industry certifications. Lastly, students immerse in a simulated hiring process, enhancing their job application and interview skills, ensuring they're primed for real-world job hunts.


Certifications:
