Support and training

London Metropolitan University, as a "Cisco Academy Training Centre" (CATC) and subsequently “Super Regional Academy” (RA) was established in 1998 within the former University of North London's School of Communications Technology and Mathematical Sciences (now the Communications Technology Cluster within School of Computing), 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.

Since 1998, the University has trained instructors across the UK and far east and supported a range of educational institutions, including universities, colleges of further education, colleges of higher education and schools. In 2012 the University has been 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 Metropolitan is one of the first universities that have embedded Cisco material in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes since 1999 and offer Cisco professional training courses to local people in part and full-time mode.

The University is located in the heart of London, only 7 minutes from Kings Cross St Pancras International station.
