Network Technology and Cybersecurity

Success in the dynamic field of network technology demands a well-rounded student, and CCBC’s Network Technology programs rise to meet the challenge.

CCBC emphasizes technical skills as well as skills to enable our students to articulate and implement thoughts and ideas. Our students can attain certificates in networking and computer- related technologies including Microsoft (MCSA, MCSE), Cisco (CCNA), CompTIA (A+, Network +, Security+), Linux (RHCT) and information technology support.

The Associates of Applied Science degree in network technology prepares our students to work with the latest technologies including Windows and Linux servers, network security, Cisco technologies, wireless systems, Voice over IP, as well as other skills necessary for the network professional.

Students are our first priority in the network technology programs at CCBC. We want to help guide you toward a rewarding future.


A+ Certificate

The program prepares students for the industry recognized CompTIA A+ certification exams and validates the latest skills needed by today's computer support professionals. It is an international, vendor-neutral certification recognized by major hardware and software vendors, distributors, and resellers. The Certificate program confirms a technician's ability to perform tasks such as installation, configuration, diagnosing, preventive maintenance, and basic networking. The exams also cover domains such as security, safety and environmental issues and communication and professionalism.



CCBC is a Cisco Networking Academy offering degree and certificate options. Both are designed to prepare students for Cisco certification (CCNA) and careers in computer networking. 

The combination of these credentials will open doors to a new career by ensuring that students have the knowledge and skills to successfully manage and troubleshoot Local and Wide Area Networks using Cisco routers, switches, and other data communication equipment.

The A.A.S. degree in Network Technology with a concentration in Cisco networking enables students to easily transfer to select four-year academic institutions.


Associate of Applied Science


The Cybersecurity Institute was created to coordinate the varying security-related activities taking place within CCBC and is committed to providing solutions to the national cybersecurity workforce shortage problem by helping shape standardized cyber security curriculum.

General Network Technology

In the General Network Technology program, students acquire the knowledge and skills needed to become a well-rounded LAN technician and pass the industry recognized CompTIA A+, Network+, and Security+ certification exams, all at the same time!

Students install, configure, troubleshoot, integrate, and secure PCs, multiple network operating systems, wireless components, various network perimeter devices, and the associated client and server software that run on today's enterprise networks.


Associate of Applied Science

Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP)

The purpose of the Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) certification, is to prepare the student to work as an entry-level network technician, network administrator, and/or network engineer. 

Upon completion of the program, students will be able to install, configure, manage, maintain, and troubleshoot a Microsoft-based local area network and related services.

Using leading-edge technology, students will:
  • Learn the theory and principles of data communications
  • Perform hands-on exercises in which they will install workstation and server operating systems; configure network communication protocols (e.g. TCP/IP); install network services (e.g., DHCP, DNS, Active directory); setup user and group accounts; implement security (e.g., firewall and router configurations); implement fault tolerant disk systems; enable Internet connectivity; optimize system performance; and, most importantly, troubleshoot common networking problems.


Associate of Applied Science

Red Hat

This track prepares students for careers as Linux system administrators. Using the core requirements for the RHEL certification exams and a “hands-on” practical approach, students will gain skills to effectively troubleshoot, manage, implement, design, and recover RHEL environments.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux system administration is one of the fastest growing areas in technology today. Linux is utilized in so many devices and infrastructures, that having a background in Linux is essential for today’s technology needs.
