Transform skills in network monitoring and analysis into an exciting career.With a Network Administration certificate*, you’ll gain proficiency in configuring routers, switches and installing other key network devices. In addition, you’ll learn how cybersecurity factors into network administration and be able to demonstrate how hackers break into network systems. These and other critical skills will give you the flexibility to adapt in the changing landscape of network systems. Once completed, you should be prepared to take the Cisco CCNA certification exams and begin a promising career in network administration.
You’ll also leave here with the skills to communicate effectively, articulate your career preparation confidently and collaborate with others meaningfully. And in all things, we’ll help you work toward becoming a capable and trusted disciple of Jesus Christ. So whatever you do, you’ll be prepared to be the best you possible.
Ensign College programs are designed to prepare students to be capable and trusted disciples with market-ready skills. The College programs are not designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional license or certification that is required for employment in an occupation in Utah or in any state, country or territory.
*If you're interested in pursuing a certificate in Network Administration, Business Intelligence, or Cloud & Systems Administration, you'll need to complete your IT Fundamentals certificate as a prerequisite. Equivalent industry experience may also qualify with prior approval from the Program Chair.
If your goal is to get a transferable, skills-based degree, you’re in the right place. Any certificate can be combined with general education courses to create your AS degree.
Seeking to expand your job-related skills to broaden career options? Strengthen your resume by including two certificates in your degree. Or, discover new interests by choosing one certificate and exploring elective credits. Are you a Pathway student interested in attending Ensign College? Those earned credits can be transferred to your AS degree as electives.
Whichever option you choose, you’ll graduate with the technical, critical thinking and interpersonal skills that employers look for, so you can secure a career and excel.
Interested in continuing your education after you graduate? No problem. Your regionally-accredited AS degree, which includes the credits from your selected certificate(s), can be transferred to a 4-year institution.
|AS DEGREE + 1 CERTIFICATE||AS DEGREE + 2 CERTIFICATES|
|Core Curriculum||34 credits||34 credits|
|Certificate(s)||15 credits||30 credits|
|TOTAL||60 credits||64 credits|
