BCIT is an Instructor Training Centre for Cisco Networking Academy and this training is only open to sponsored instructors who are affiliated with an institution that has an active Cisco Networking Academy. Switching, Routing, and Wireless Essentials (SWRE) covers the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small to medium sized network. Wireless local area networks (WLAN) and security concepts are also covered in this course. Students will perform configuration and troubleshooting as well as identify and mitigate Local Area Network (LAN) security threats. The course delivery will be through distance education where the students read the on-line materials and complete all the on-line chapter quizzes prior to attending 12-hours of in-person sessions scheduled with the instructor. The in-person sessions may be conducted virtually and will concentrate on instructional techniques, technical clarification, skills exams, challenge lab activities, and an on-line final exam.
