Cisco Networking Academy Success for Intraining

Intraining have recently become a Cisco Academy, which with the support of the Open University allows access of up to date technical training courses. These courses will be embedded into some of the digital apprenticeships being offered by Intraining, in subjects such as Networking, Cyber Security and coding, and will all be provided by one of the world’s largest and well known IT networking companies, Cisco.

Recently, the Open University in collaboration with CompTIA and Cisco Networking Academy provided a free 5 months long IT Essentials (ITE) remote course for instructors to attend weekly Facebook live teaching videos, self-study via e-learning and collaboration and support through social media. The Open University supports over 100 Cisco Academies globally, and had in excess of 1600 people enrol on the course last year. Out of that number approximately 300 completed the programme and passed the end of course exam and skills based assessments. All of the IT technical trainers at Intraining passed the course with flying colours and are now certified Cisco ITE instructors. Congratulations to Craig Lancaster, Ryan Ashurst, Tudor Britton and Paul Hand.

With the success of the ITE course, a new CyberOps - CCNA Cybersecurity course is now underway, with all the instructors taking part once again looking to become Cisco certified in this challenging area of security breaches, threats and incidents.

This ensures that Intraining trainers are able to help develop the workforce of the future and change the world - one student at a time.
