The Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) programme is open to University IT Supporters. It covers network technology, protocols and theory at deeper levels reflective of University practices. There is a fee to attend this course and an additional fee to take the CCNA (200-120) certification exam.

CCNA Routing and Switching provides a comprehensive overview of networking concepts and skills, from network applications to the protocols and services provided to those applications by the lower layers of the network, with an emphasis on practical application, work-force readiness, and soft-skills development. You will progress from basic networking to more complex enterprise and theoretical networking models later in the curriculum.

There are four modules in the recommended sequence:

We offer this program as instructor led with online access to the curriculum with the support of interactive media and an online networks laboratory called NETLAB. There is a mix of lecture, demonstrations and a heavy emphasis on practical activities using live lab equipment and a simulation package.

Introduction to Networks is the first module of four modules in CCNA. Please book onto this first module to reserve your place for the whole programme.

This module introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and computer networks. The principles of IP addressing and fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum. By the end of the course, you will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes.

By the end of this course, you will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

This is the third module of the CCNA series, should you wish to book on the series please book on Module 1 Introduction to Networks.

This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a large and complex network. You will learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. By the end of this course, you will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, STP, and VTP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. You will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement DHCP and DNS operations in a network.

This is the fourth module of the CCNA series, should you wish to book on the series please book on Module 1 Introduction to Networks.

This course discusses the WAN technologies and network services required by converged applications in a complex network. The course enables you to understand the selection criteria of network devices and WAN technologies to meet network requirements. You will learn how to configure and troubleshoot network devices and resolve common issues with data link protocols. You also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement IPSec and virtual private network (VPN) operations in a complex network

C++: Programming in Modern C++ Wed 4 Jan 2017   09:30 [Places]

This is an introduction to programming in modern C++, based on the book "'Programming: Principles and Practice using C++"' (2nd ed.) by Bjarne Stroustrup. The aim is to teach participants how to write non trivial, practical programs that are comprehensible and portable. Participants should also be able to understand and modify most well-written C++ applications, though not necessarily every aspect of them.

C++ is a large and complicated language, which is reflected in the length of this course. The creator of C++, Prof. Stroustrup, estimates that newcomers to programming will have to devote in excess of 200 hours' of work to learn how to program in C++ properly. Please bear that in mind if signing up for the course. It would also be of help (though not essential) if attendees have some prior programming experience in another language, e.g. Python.

This course is intended to build on the introductory EndNote course and give attenders practical experience of editing EndNote output styles.

EndNote output styles control the way EndNote sets out references and their citations in printed documents. By editing these, you can achieve precise control of the way your bibliography is set out.

An introduction to using the bibliography program EndNote to store references and notes and use them to achieve correct referencing in your documents without re-typing. This course covers both EndNote Desktop and the free, browser based, "lite" version, EndNote Online.

Using EndNote will enable you to keep a note of references as you research online so that you will always be able to document your sources correctly. It can save you time as you should never need to retype references and you can alter their layout with a couple of mouse-clicks.
