Network Security Releases!

Posted: 7th April 2021 by ccna7guru in NETSEC

The Network Security 1.0 course is now available – with a highly interactive design to engage your students. 

This enhanced curriculum ​introduces the core security concepts and skills needed to configure and troubleshoot computer networks and help ensure the integrity of devices and data. Students will gain practical, hands-on skills to design, implement, and manage network security systems and ensure their integrity, preparing them for entry-level network security positions. 

Network Security complements CCNA, CyberOps Associate, IoT Security, or DevNet Associate courses. Students can pursue a career in network security, expand their cybersecurity expertise, or broaden their networking or software skills. ​ 

What’s New? 

  • Digital badge – Now available for students who successfully complete the instructor-led course. 
  • Highly interactive – Designed for engagement and real skills development, students build and reinforce knowledge throughout the curriculum.  Course includes labs with Packet Tracer, virtual machines, and real equipment, plus, quizzes, videos, interactive activities, assessments, a final exam, and more. 
  • Same equipment as CCNA – We’ve removed the additional equipment requirements. If you’re teaching CCNA, you’re ready to go!  
  • Improved interface – Built with the new user interface, now mobile-friendly and more accessible​.
  • Streamlined for just-in-time learning – We’ve removed outdated products and processes and updated the virtual machines and Packet Tracer labs. ​ Information about equipment and configuration is now moved into labs reducing the amount of reading with more emphasis on just-in-time learning. ​ 
  • Updated Assessments – We completely updated the assessments to give students more ownership and instructors more control over exams. Now featuring self-assessments, module quizzes, module group exams, updated PTSA & Skills Assessment, updated practice final, and a new secured, dynamic final exam.​ 

Network Security 1.0 is available now on NetAcad.com in English and consists of approximately seventy hours of instructional material.  

This course replaces the CCNA Security course.  CCNA Security in English is now end-of-life (EOL) with last class start date on 31 March 2022.
