Understanding Network Protocols and Routing

Description: 

Understanding Network Protocols and Routing is an introductory course designed to provide participants with the fundamentals of IP networking and routing. IP networks have become the foundation for the networks used in the broadband industry. Understanding how the devices in the network are configured and the protocols they use is key when designing and maintaining these networks. This course covers the concepts of digital numbering and how it relates to IPv4 and IPv6 addressing. Participants will also learn about the purpose of protocols, networking addressing, routing, and IP video.

Included in the Course:

  • Engaging and Interactive LightningMod™ to prepare the learner for training 
  • In-depth interactive eBook modules 
  • CORTEX mobile app to access eBook modules in the field 
  • Module assessments
  • Course final exam
  • Fun VirtuGame™ to improve absorption and retention of competencies 
  • SCTE·ISBE course completion certificate
  • 1 recertification units (RUs) towards SCTE·ISBE certification renewal


Requirements for Successful Course Completion:

  • Module quizzes 70% or higher
  • Course final test 70% or higher

You may take the course final test up to 3 times.


Format:

The course is delivered online via the SCTE·ISBE virtual classroom, or it may be completed in 1 day (10 hours) as an onsite.


Online learners interact with web-based course materials and complete assessments (quizzes) at a time that is convenient for them. Learners may also contact the instructor when they have questions.


SCTE·ISBE recommends learners spend approximately 1 - 2 hours per week, on average, completing the various course activities in order to maximize the learning benefits. 100% of the schedule is determined by the learners (interacting with online materials, completing quizzes and a final exam).
