Internetwork Engineering Program

Program Requirements

PC AGE’s comprehensive Internetwork Engineering program provides both fundamental and advanced level courses and are designed to meet industry certification requirements. No prior computer experience necessary.

Career-focused approach

At PC AGE, preparation is key and it starts with our program structure. With each main course we teach, there is a companion course that focuses on two career objectives:

Training for a technical interview by asking and explaining hundreds of questions that will also prepare them for related Microsoft, CompTIA, and Cisco certification exams. Ensure students are ready to do the job by working on real-world projects and all possible scenarios as independently as possible.

Intensive training and preparation

  • Courses taught by our instructors are also available online to our students to reinforce the concepts learned in the classrooms. These online modules include contents, quizzes, graphics, and simulated hands-on exercises.
  • You will go through hundreds of hands-on exercises and projects to prepare you for real-world situations and problems.
  • All students will be required to submit a final graduation project. This final project tests all skills needed to work as an Internetwork Engineer.

Core/Required Courses

The program includes preparation for the eight designations below. Obtaining these certifications provides credibility, industry recognition, and the best alternate to experience to help you get a job with no experience in the IT field.
