HOPE PROJECT ACADEMY
The objective of this course is to teach students to analyze, test, troubleshoot and evaluate existing network systems, such as Local Area Network (LAN), Wide Area Network (WAN), and internet systems or a segment of a network system. Students will also learn to perform network maintenance to ensure that networks operate correctly with minimal interruption. Students must meet the requirements of this course to qualify for Graduation.
The course is administered through classroom training with lectures, interspersed with Power Point presentations, handouts, using the internet, and some hand-on workshops. Students will learn to configure and define parameters for installation or testing of Local Area Network (LAN) Wide Area Network (WAN) hubs, routers, switches controllers, multiplexers, or related networking equipment; configure security settings or access permissions for groups or individuals; determine reliability of hardware or software; accurately communicate technical information and consult with customers concerning their needs. Students will use copper and fiber cabling, termination tools, Cisco routers and Cisco Switches. Students are expected to complete home-study assignments and will be tested after each chapter. Students are required to participate in Job Readiness, Job Search and Retention Activities and must provide information on employment. Following is an outline of the course:
NLT 1 – Introduction to Network Technologies
