To Become a CISCO Academy

London Metropolitan University was established as a Cisco Academy Training Centre (CATC) in 1998, before later becoming a Super Regional Academy, within the former University of North London's School of Communications Technology and Mathematical Sciences (now the Communications Technology Cluster within the School of Computing (SoC)). It is one of the few places in the UK that has been certified by Cisco Systems to provide CCNP training in one of the most advanced Cisco training labs in the UK.

Since 1998, the University has trained instructors across the UK and Far East, and supported a range of educational institutions including universities, further education colleges, and higher education colleges and schools. In 2012 the University was selected as an Academy Support Centre (ASC) and Instructor Training Centre (ITC) to continue its high quality support and training to academies and instructors across the globe. London Met became one of the first universities to embed Cisco material into its undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in 1999 and has since been offering Cisco professional training courses to local people through part and full-time courses.

The University's part-time and weekend courses in computer networks and internetworking teach students the skills needed to design, build and maintain computer networks, and enable successful candidates to take the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) and Cisco Certified Networking Professional (CCNP) examinations.
