The Next CISCO Networking Academy Course … Introduction to Packet Tracer is Launched

The Computer Science Department is launching its next CISCO Networking Academy course … Introduction to Packet Tracer.

Deepen your understanding of how a network works, and step into the virtual lab to build your own! With Cisco Packet Tracer, you can watch how data travels across your network using Simulation Mode, or practice setting up your own device rack and cables in Physical Mode. Once you are ready, expand your simulations to analyze network traffic, add Internet of Things (IoT) devices, integrate Python code, or practice network automation skills.

New to networking? No problem. Cisco Packet Tracer enables a suite of tutored activities that give you hints along the way, if you want them.

You don’t have to be a Computer Science student to sign up to the CISCO courses … you just have to be interested in the topic area … want to try something new … able to work independently (approx. 2 hours of self-study) … and work to deadlines (15th March 2024)

If you are in KS4 or KS5 and would like to start or continue working on your CISCO Networking career then you can self-enrol using the following link:
