Curriculum for students entering program in 2018-19.
Voice over IP (VoIP) is a methodology and group of technologies for the delivery of voice communications and multimedia sessions over networks. The IT VoIP Certificate consists of five advanced lT courses which train the student in the configuration, delivery and maintenance of VoIP services. This certificate stacks naturally on top of the IT Entry Level Networking Certificate, and also serves other workers and students who are already at the CCENT (Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technicians) level. Classes can be taken day or evening, or up to 100% online.
Students who complete these courses will be eligible to test for two widely-recognized industry certificates:
- CCNA Routing and Switching
- CCNA Security
Upon successful testing, graduates will be in demand for professional networking positions in a variety of companies.
