How do we teach you?
Everything is online, delivered as a MOOC (massively open online course) and can be accomplished from the comfort of your own domain. There will be clear start and end points. While each course is self paced. There has to be deadlines so we can 'pass' you as an instructor.
Every course will be accompanied by weekly webinars - these are delivered entirely on social media using our Facebook Live page. If you dislike social media, we appreciate that this may be somewhat difficult. After all, you are accessing this course for free!
How do I enrol?
This is the easy bit, all you need to do is press one of the following buttons and share your email address - this will automatically connect you to the Cisco NetAcad system and enrol you on each course.
We have not opened all courses for enrolment (yet) - please keep an eye on our social media and email communication. The following buttons take you to the enrolment pages for each of the available courses:
Please note, while this is free - it is for TEACHERS ONLY.
