Students in the NSA program develop comprehensive skills in network infrastructure support using Cisco Systems and Microsoft products to create a secure enterprise network. Hands-on work in advanced labs outfitted with industry-grade hardware and software teaches students routing, switching, as well as firewall and server technologies to deploy a reliable and redundant network that also supports remote access and wide area interconnectivity.

NSA students are concurrently enrolled in the Cisco Networking Academy and completed credits can be used as prerequisites for further Cisco training. The program is a member of the VMWare IT Academic Program and is a CompTIA Associate.

Students in the NSA program are prepared to write the certification exams for Microsoft MCSE and MCSA, Cisco CCENT, CompTIA A+, Server+, Network+, and Linux LPI. The cost of certification exams is not included in tuition, but students are eligible for discount vouchers.

Eligible students can participate in an eight-week work practicum placement in the computer industry to provide them relevant practical experience, learn on-the-job procedures, and develop valuable contacts. And all students participate in MITT’s Work Skills Series workshops which provides them a foundation in the employability and essential skills employers demand.

Who it is for

Individuals who love to solve complex problems, have a desire to understand business processes and procedures, who are comfortable explaining complex topics to experts and non-experts alike, and who are eager to acquire progressive knowledge through self-guided lifelong learning.

Continuous Program Improvement

MITT continuously reviews and improves programs to maintain relevance in the workplace and effective learning experiences for all students. Although the institution strives to have the website reflect the most current version of all programs, MITT reserves the right to change the program curriculum as necessary to meet industry and accreditation requirements. As a result, course information and learning outcomes may be adjusted prior to the scheduled course start date.

COVID-19 Response

Due to the challenges raised by COVID-19, MITT reserves the right to alter course delivery methods and/or program durations. Course deliveries may require increased percentages of online/distance learning components, alternatives to work practicums, and extended program durations to accommodate physical distancing and work practicum placement restrictions. MITT will be providing an exceptional level of enhanced student and program supports to ensure this modified program experience continues to meet all required learning outcomes for your program.
