Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Skills training, Laboratory work, Stimulating activities (simulation, games, drama)
Learning outcomes
Advanced course based on Cisco Networking Academy CCNA2 curricula. An emphasis will be placed on the routing and Cisco router configuration. Students have an opportunity to gain the advanced skills in the CNA lab. To continue in Computer Networks III-IV, students should successfully pass the CCNA2 class.
Students gain both the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the field, allowing to hold the corresponding function (network administration, network installation). You also get the necessary language skills, enabling further training in the field without language barriers.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination, Didactic test, Systematic monitoring

Given assignment confirms that a student attended lessons to the extent required and fulfilled qualified requirements. Conditions for credit are: active work at labs, min. 80% presence, passing the CNA (Cisco Networking Academy) CCNA2 class. Form, contents and length of the exam are determined in accordance with Study and Examining Rules of University of Pardubice. The exam consists of two parts, a written test and a theoretical exam. Student passes successfully the written test as well as the theoretical part of the exam if he/she obtains at minimum 50% of possible points in each part.
