The FHSU Internetworking Certificate is designed to provide key skills for persons desiring to be computer networking professionals. A student completing the FHSU certificate will have finished the course work necessary to sit for the prestigious Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) examination. The five courses that comprise the Internetworking Certificate may be completed separate from a degree program or may also be applied toward a bachelor's degree in Computer Networking and Telecommunications.
The three internetworking courses focus on the key concepts covered by the Cisco Certified Network Associate exam. The two Network Architecture and Data Communications courses cover a variety of network communication theories. The first Network Architecture and Data Communications course covers the following topics: the OSI Model, physical media, electrical signal, line coding, link level protocol, network routing and addressing, as well as LAN and WAN concepts. The second Network Architecture and Data Communications course introduces students to a variety of network related services that reside in the upper layers of the OSI Model. Students will also have an opportunity to study advanced concepts not included in the first Network Architecture and Data Communications course. Topics may include, but are not limited to: Internetwork Design, Internetwork Security, Synchronous Optical Network (SONET), Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Point to Point Protocol, advanced routing protocols and other networking services.
