This CIS Network Admin certificate is a subset of the core AAS degree technical courses. These core courses prepare students with the technical knowledge and skills to excel in administering complex IP networks, which are increasingly integral to the functioning of any large business, from manufacturing to finance to food service to science and government services.
Through a partnership with the Cisco Networking Academy we offer courses which provide interactive learning tools and activities to help students develop practical experience and 21st century career skills such as problem solving, collaboration, and critical thinking.
Since this CIS Network Administration certificate is a subset of the core AAS degree technical courses, it will enable CNM students who have completed the CIS AAS degree in a different concentration to complete the remaining technical courses in this area and earn a CIS certificate. Additionally, this cert is ideal for students coming to CNM with AA/AAS/BS degrees who wish to do the core technical course work for this area.
Some courses are not eligible for Financial Aid. Please check the list here when considering a course.
Many of the courses in this program are transferable and some may be applied to four-year degree programs at other institutions. CNM currently has transfer agreements with many colleges and universities in New Mexico and elsewhere.
Career and technical education courses in this program will qualify for credit for a period of ten academic years. Due to changing technologies, trends, and professional demands, courses completed ten or more years in the past will satisfy program requirements only if they are approved by the instructional school in which they were offered. Cohorted programs may have additional restrictions.
