The first develops general computing skills relevant to the networking and security specialist; the second looks at topologies, protocols, hardware devices, security and network management; the third develops communication skills, provides project experience and explores legal, social, ethical and commercial issues.- With Cisco accreditation and a wide range of transferable skills including project management, group working and communications, you’ll develop excellent long-term career prospects and a high earning potential.
