The main objective of this Engineers training program is to provide the adequate hands-on skills that can be applicable in campus environments, this training is a hands-on lab work to teach the skills needed to design, build, operate and manage a tertiary education institution’s campus network infrastructure according to current best practices. The participants will be able to:

  1. Understand Network design principles
  2. Understand core organizational infrastructure design best practices
  3. Physical infrastructure (cabling and cabling installation)
  4. Implement Switching (spanning tree, VLANs, L2 best practices)
  5. Routing (static routing, OSPF, and BGP)
  6. IPv4, IPv6 and deploying dual stack infrastructure
  7. Choosing routers and switches
