Network Class Available in Summer II

Friday, June 27th, 2014

Hi,  Folks,

I am offering IA354 Network Routing in Summer II.   It is a two-week hybrid course starting in the beginning of August. Compared to the regular full-semester version of IA354,  this summer version focuses more on hands-on labs with enhanced web learning and less lecture hours.  Also please note:  IA350 (Network Switching) is NOT a prerequisite for IA354.  If you are to take both courses in your Plan of Study,  you don’t need to take IA350 first before you can take IA354.

The registration will remain open until August 4th.
