CCNA ccna


Telecom industry is at the boom now days and still needs thousands of new network and IT Professionals. UCAT aims to fulfill this gap with quality network professionals.

The Cisco Netacad Academy program uses a blended learning model, integrating face-to-face teaching with a Web-based curriculum, hands-on lab exercises, and Internet-based assessments. The Cisco Networking Academy Program curriculum centers on teaching students to design, build, and maintain computer networks.

CCNA is a four-semester long course to be completed within a period of seven months. After completing the course, a student will get certificate and a letter for each semester from Cisco. UCAT is working as a “LOCAL ACADEMY” of CISCO SYSTEMS USA. We have highly qualified staff that is specially trained by Cisco Systems for this particular course. Our labs are fully equipped with latest versions of Routers (2500 and 2600 series) and Switches on which student perform practical to get experience in handling these equipments.

Course Description:

The Cisco CCNA curriculum provides a comprehensive overview of networking from fundamentals to advanced applications and services. It is based on a top-down approach to networking. This course emphasizes theoretical concepts and practical application, while providing opportunities for students to gain the skills and hands-on experience needed to design, install, operate, and maintain networks in small-to-medium businesses, as well as enterprise and service provider environments.

CCNA Exploration offers in-depth theory, challenging labs, and a detailed overview of protocol operations.

The CCNA Exploration 1/2 curriculum is composed of two courses:

  • Network Fundamentals
  • Routing Protocols and Concepts

The CCNA Exploration 3/4 curriculum is composed of two courses:

  • LAN switching and Wireless.
  • Accessing the WAN.


Professional Recognition:

UCAT is working from the year 2005 as a “LOCAL ACADEMY” of CISCO SYSTEMS USA and recognized by ICT (PTCL) and International Telecommunication Union. Advantage of doing CCNA from CISCO Local Academy is that, After completing one semester you can get admission in any CISCO Local Academy of world for the rest of your studies.
