    3. Curricula Updates

    4. CCNP CCNA Exploration CCNA Discovery Relevant Curricula Portfolio ROUTE: Implementing IP Routing SWITCH: Implementing IP Switched Networks TSHOOT: Troubleshooting and Maintaining IP Networks  Network Fundamentals Routing Protocols and Concepts LAN Switching and Wireless Accessing the WAN Networking for Home and Small Businesses Working at a Small-to-Medium Business or ISP Introducing Routing and Switching in the Enterprise Designing and Supporting Computer Networks CCNA Security Professional Levels Network Professional IT Essentials: PC Hardware and Software Network Specialist Security Network Associate Network Technician IT Essentials Packet Tracer: Simulation tool IT Technician Improve Student Networking Knowledge and Skills

    5. IT Essentials 5.0 in Cisco NetSpace • ITE 5.0 is available ONLY in Cisco NetSpace • Users must upgrade to Cisco NetSpace to create a course and to access course materials • Instructor Training classes are only available in Cisco NetSpace • Benefits of delivery in Cisco NetSpace • Curriculum is accessible on mobile devices • Improved user interface • Ability to increase and decrease size of text box within the course • Course management flexibility for instructors • Ability to re-arrange course chapters • Ability to add additional course content, including videos, documents, links, etc. • Ability to add assignments • Communication and collaboration tools, including groups, discussion threads, and course calendar with automatic notifications

    6. New in IT Essentials v5.0 • Developed for Cisco NetSpace Learning Environment • New design aligned to CompTIA exam topics • New and updated content including • New mobile device skills • New virtualization skills • Increased Windows 7 OS skills • Increased troubleshooting skills • Increased networking and security skills • Reported errors in prior version corrected • Updated Cisco Packet Tracer activities • Packet Tracer’s rich simulation environment allows students to explore, experiment, and develop problem solving and troubleshooting skill

    7. Important Milestones

    8. CCNP CCNA Exploration CCNA Discovery Relevant Curricula Portfolio ROUTE: Implementing IP Routing SWITCH: Implementing IP Switched Networks TSHOOT: Troubleshooting and Maintaining IP Networks  Network Fundamentals Routing Protocols and Concepts LAN Switching and Wireless Accessing the WAN Networking for Home and Small Businesses Working at a Small-to-Medium Business or ISP Introducing Routing and Switching in the Enterprise Designing and Supporting Computer Networks CCNA Security Professional Levels Network Professional IT Essentials: PC Hardware and Software Network Specialist Security Network Associate Network Technician IT Essentials Packet Tracer: Simulation tool IT Technician Improve Student Networking Knowledge and Skills

    9. CCNA R&S Highlights • The new CCNA R&S curriculum continues to focus on routing and switching technologies to help students prepare for entry-level networking careers, and aligns with the Cisco CCENT and CCNA certifications. • First set of CCNA R&S courses will be available in the Summer 2013 and then progressively released until the end of 2013 • Business context or Technical Context • Teaching approach: Routing & Switching together or independently

    10. CCNA Routing & Switching Curriculum • A set of 7 courses • Align to CCENT and CCNA Routing and Switching certifications • Major content revision to incorporate technology changes • Improved instructional design • Technically equivalent • Flexibly supports different learning and teaching options CCNA ROUTING and SWITCHING CERTIFICATION CCNA ROUTING and SWITCHING CERTIFICATION CCNA ROUTING and SWITCHING CERTIFICATION CCENT CERTIFICATION CCENT CERTIFICATION CCENT CERTIFICATION CCENT CERTIFICATION Routing Protocols Introduction to Networks Network Basics Switched Networks Connecting Networks Scaling Networks Scaling Networks Routing & Switching Essentials

    11. Improved Chapter Learning Progressions Simple chapter introduction Lots of labs and PT activities to choose from (can’t possibly do all) Increasingly open-ended activities across courses Chapter introduction includes an activity to set the stage how new concept build on previous chapters and why it is important Skills acquisition through carefully selected progression of activities Develops competency through increasingly faded scaffolding Culminating skills integration activity CCNA Routing & Switching CCNA Exploration CCNA Discovery Putting latest learning research into practice Improved Student Success

    12. Re-think > Teach These Courses! Recommended CCENT CCNA • Optimizes for student employment opportunities with CCENT as the foundation to pursue advanced technologies • Enable students to acquire skills for immediate use on the job • Students learn switching earlier in instructional flow Introduction to Networks Routing & Switching Essentials Connecting Networks Scaling Networks

    13. You can Look Forward to…

    14. Are you ready for CCNA R&S?

    15. Start to Get Ready… • Study IPv6 (ask your ITC and ASC) • Get familiar with the DRAFT Scope & Sequence (on Cisco NetSpace in Offerings > CCNA section) • Sign-up for Networking Academy Maintenance • Work with your ASC and articulation partners for regional planning • Take the Are You Ready? Technologies self-assessment NOW AVAILABLE!!! • Continue to look for more information on Cisco NetSpace as we make it available

    16. CCNA Routing and Switching Certification

    17. Redesigned Cisco CCNA Certifications CCNA Composite Certification Exam Associate Level Advanced Technology Certifications CCNA Routing and Switching (ICND2 exam) CCNA Security CCNA Voice CCNA Wireless CCNASP Ops CCDA Entry Level Pre-Requisite Certification CCENT(ICND1 exam) • CCENT is the new pre-requisite certification for advanced technology certifications • CCNA Routing and Switching retains a single exam option, CCNA Composite • NetAcad CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum aligns to the redesign of the Cisco CCENT and CCNA Routing and Switching certification exams

    18. Certification Exam Changes Grayed out topics mostly covered in CCNA Discovery and Exploration

    19. NetAcad Certification Recommendations • If students are finishing CCNA D2, D4 or E4 today • Study and take the old certification by September 30, 2013 • Employers and Cisco do not differentiate between old and new CCNA certification • But remember … students need to know these topics when renewing their certification in three years • If students cannot take the old CCNA certification exam by September 30, 2013 • Additional topics to learn … means they can do more • Technologies are evolving and everyone is expected to know more • Students need to know these topics when renewing their certification in three years

    20. CCNA Certification Exam Vouchers • CCNA Routing and Switching Curriculum Before August 20th, 2013, students can select vouchers for the old CCENT/CCNA certification exams or the new CCENT and CCNA Routing and Switching certification exams After August 20th, 2013, students can only request vouchers for the new CCENT and CCNA Routing and Switching certification exams Students can take the old CCENT/CCNA certification exam up to September 30th, 2013
