We regularly receive enquiries about Cisco Networking Academy Instructor Training and Accreditation. Only for a number of Cisco Netacad Courses it is necessary to obtain an instructor accreditation. We would advise all insitutions to look at "IT Essentials". Especially with a view on internships, this is a very important course for students.
Every teacher wishing to teach CCNA 1-4 needs to obtain an "instructor accreditation" from an Instructor Training Center (ITC). This is also the case for a number of other courses: IT Essentials, CCNA Security, CyberSecuruty Operations, CCNP, Connecting Things, Big Data & Analytics. Many courses , however, do not require accreditation.
In order to obtain an instructor accreditation, a teacher needs to go through a formal training. A lot of this training is possible via remote communication (Webex), but for each course a minimum of two in-person sessions are essential.
For each course the teacher is able to show his self-confidence in doing the exams and in presenting a relevant case study regarding the topics of a particular course.
For CCNA, we normally organize one training for CCNA1-2 (ICND1) and one training for CCNA3-4 (ICND2).
Cisco Academy Instructors do not need an industrial certification.
Since Instructor Training is remote for 80% of the time, it is possible to start a new training at any time in the year.
