This course offers a comprehensive overview of computer networking principles, essential for all IT professionals. It covers the complexities and continuous evolution of networking, facilitating global communication and information access through technologies like email, video transmission, and the Web. The course aims to provide a broad understanding of networking fundamentals, including operation, protocols, standards, and security. Students will learn about various networking technologies, hardware, and software, gaining hands-on experience in configuring and installing systems to understand Local Area Networks (LANs), Wide Area Networks (WANs), and IP data networks.

Successful completion equips students with the ability to install, operate, and troubleshoot small networks, alongside skills in communication literacy, critical thinking, analysis, reasoning, and interpretation, preparing them for employment and academic advancement.

By the end of this course a student will be able to:

  1. Examine networking principles and their protocols.
  2. Explain networking devices and operations.
  3. Design efficient networked systems.
  4. Implement and diagnose networked systems.

There are no formal prerequisites or qualifications required to enroll. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • As the course is conducted entirely in English, we recommend that learners have a good grasp of the English language, both written and spoken, to gain maximum benefit.
  • Since this is an online course, you’ll need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access. Familiarity with basic computer skills would be advantageous.
  • While you can learn at your own pace, dedicating consistent time to the course will help you understand and retain the material better.

          Registration process:

          • Based on course settings, students might be requested to fill in an application (online) and provide us with correct information about themselves before being able to proceed with the course.
          • We will contact you by email if we need more details after submitting your application.
          • After approval, you can proceed with payment and start the course.

          Materials are organized under different lessons. The lessons consist of self-study contents including reading-texts, practical activity, assignment and quizzes in which students can engage and learn.

          The course has supervisors and instructors; they are available online to support students by answering their questions or explain different topics to them. This will be managed under discussion section, forums, direct contact or by online meetings.

          When student successfully completes all lessons, quizzes and pass assignment, he/she will be offered a certificate.

          The Course is available as an individual course or under Pearson Qualifications (HNC/HND) in Computing. The price will be updated based on the selected option. The individual course fee is higher because Awarding Body applies higher fees for individual enrollment. At the same time, a discount will be automatically added when you order HNC/HND in Computing or if you’re already enrolled under these qualifications.

          Courses awarded by Next Gates have no discount, and the fee is already reduced.

          * Note that prices don’t include VAT. Additional fee might be applied at checkout.
