Convergence Technologies Professional (CTP) Course 1: Data Networking

The Data Networking course teaches you the fundamentals of networking. Through hands-on training, you will learn the vendor-independent networking skills and concepts necessary for entry-level professionals seeking employment in the Information Technology (IT) or telecommunications industries. In Data Networking, you will learn to identify networking models and topologies, describe the function and purpose of network operating systems, and monitor system performance. You will learn how various networking components map to the layers of the Open Systems Interconnection reference model (OSI/RM). You will also learn about the process of packetization; learn to identify key networking protocols; and explore the nature, purpose and operating essentials of protocols that make up the TCP/IP suite. You will learn about various LAN, WAN and wireless standards, and about wireless vulnerabilities and security. You will explore the routing process, study Internet addressing, learn to identify address classes, learn about the use of private addresses, and learn to perform subnetting. You will also learn how to use various TCP/IP diagnostic and troubleshooting tools.
