Full Stack Networking Project
The Full Stack Networking Project is designed to provide an understanding of a complete HQ/Branch network and the project build-out process. Students will learn how to plan, design, and implement their own Full Stack Network with a headquarters location and two branch offices. This project is performed locally on the student’s computer and all configurations are completed using the Cisco Packet Tracer network simulation software. Cisco Packet Tracer is available for free from the Cisco Networking Academy.
Cisco ASA Upgrade Project
This project is based on a very common deployment: installation of a new dedicated firewall in the network. In this case, we need a more advanced internet edge device to provide better site to site VPN capabilities and also telecommuter support with Remote Access VPN.
Co-Located Data Center Project
Another common extension of the network is to add a hot-site for disaster recovery and redundant network services. A Co-located Data Center will provide us redundancy in our infrastructure as well as our storage and server environments in the case of a disaster.
FSNP SQC Preparation Labs
Before performing the live Skills Qualification Check (SQC) to become awarded as a Full Stack Network Associate, candidates will be provided with preparation labs and lab guides that will assist with reinforcement of all the concepts and skills that are checked during the live SQC.
FSNP Skills Qualification Check
During these final two weeks, all students are scheduled to perform their live SQC to verify skills. Upon successful completion, the candidate will be awarded the Full Stack Network Professional (FSNP) award. The time allotted for the SQC itself is 2 hours. This block of time includes scheduling for all students in the cohort to SQC, get feedback. coaching, and also graduation.
Career Workshop 1
Students will take their career services assignments (such as the cover letter and resume) and LEVEL THEM UP to interview-landing job applications. We’ll cover how to tailor job applications to the specific jobs they are applying to, identify their own brand and voice, and learn how to articulate their responses to frequently asked interview questions. By the end of this career workshop students will be confident in their resumes, their personal brand, and understand exactly how to approach the application and interview process!
Cisco Certified Network Associate
The Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) award is one of the strongest associate level IT award in the world and proves your ability to install, configure, operate and troubleshoot enterprise networks and Cisco IOS. CCNA awarded professionals understand the most core and fundamental technologies related to network engineering, and are versed in the configuration and installation of Cisco routers and switches in a broad range of IT environments. In this course students are presented with a series of premium instructional videos and hands-on labs that teach all the knowledge and skills needed to pass the 200-301 CCNA exam, obtain your CCNA award, and get on your path to becoming a rockstar engineer!
Career Workshop 2
Students will go through all the steps to apply for an IT job through our simulated hiring process. They will complete a formal job application and interview for an IT position with the application materials they created in their Career Services’ exercises. Students will identify a job on our company’s website, interview, learn if they were made a job offer or not, and receive detailed feedback. This process will help our candidates emerge from our program with stand out applications, interviews, and winning first impressions to potential employers!
