This program provides an engaging, hands-on learning experience to teach core networking with an emphasis on environments networking professionals may typically encounter in production of live events and entertainment.

The curriculum is delivered through the Cisco Networking Academy consisting of three courses designed to prepare students for the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) exam. Supplemental materials provide an understanding of project requirements and popular technologies including Audinate Dante used in production of live events such as music festivals, large conferences, and theater performances.

The program runs for 12 consecutive weeks and requires a full time commitment (35-40 hours per week). The curriculum and materials allow students the flexibility to work from the coworking site on campus as well as from home or other locations, provided they are on campus for at least 10 hours per week for hands-on labs and in-person instructor support. Students will learn using a combination of lecture and reading content accessed through their own devices, interactive activities, online simulations, and in-person hands-on labs (using on-campus network equipment).

In the first phase of the program, students will be introduced to the architectures, models, protocols, and networking elements that connect users, devices, applications and data through the Internet and across modern computer networks (including IP addressing and Ethernet Fundamentals). Students will receive detailed instruction on switching technologies and router operations that support small-to-medium business networks and includes wireless local area networks (WLAN) and security concepts. The program will give students a deep understanding of the architecture, security, and operation of an enterprise network. The final phase of the program will introduce students to the new ways in which network engineers interact with programmable infrastructure.
