This program offers comprehensive associate-level training and certification focused on the technologies students need to implement and administer networking and IT infrastructure.
CCNA certification requires one exam, 200-301 Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA). This exam covers a broad range of fundamentals you need for any direction students want to go. This MedCerts program will help students prepare to pass the exam, with hands-on lab practice for real-world job skills.
Completing the training course not only prepares students for the exam; it also earns students:
A Level 200 training badge. Training badges broadcast specific skills and learning outcomes that employers care about.
30 Continuing Education (CE) credits, which students can use to recertify your CCNA. Students can also recertify by retaking the exam.

“As an experienced healthcare professional making a transition into the IT field, I have been extremely pleased with the support that MedCerts has given me from the time that I started taking their courses. Being a married professional with a child, my life is extremely busy, and the advantages that their online course offers are substantial. I would, in particular, like to acknowledge the tremendous support that I have received (and continue to receive) from the IT academic advisor. The team has all worked diligently, and gone above and beyond the call of duty, to resolve my concerns, and assist me with the completion of my IT program. I would heartily recommend MedCerts to anyone who is thinking about changing their current field, or acquiring a new skill set, while they are currently employed.”
