Cisco Systems is considered to be one of the worldwide leaders in networking for the internet. Innovation in communications technology is constantly expanding the scope of networking. Much like the role that modern telephony has played in creating international business activities and competition, networks have helped to create global industries. With a predicted shortage of over 80,000 network-skilled employees in the UK alone, and 600,000 in Europe, networking qualifications are at a premium.
London Met is one of the very few places in the UK which has been certified by Cisco Systems to provide CCNP training in one of the most advanced Cisco training labs in the UK. We were established as a Cisco Academy Training Centre (CATC) in 1998 (originally within one of our predecessor institutions, the former University of North London), and subsequently a Super Regional Academy (RA). Our Cisco training centre now sits within London Met's School of Computing.
