The communication between computer systems or devices is a very intricate
area. It involves a network, which is any set of computers or devices that are
connected to each other with the ability to exchange data. Professionals in this
field have studied computer networking training and have a variety of titles such
as project management analyst, IT program manager, technical account manager,
business account manager, network administrator, network analyst and network
support. The one thing they have in common is that Ontario is experiencing a
critical need for properly trained computer and communication network

Let’s take a look at some of the jobs in this field. For example, network analysts
install, lay out and maintain all network components. They also plan, design,
analyze and provide technical support for data communications and network or
group of networks. Lastly, network analysts conduct research and evaluation of
network technology. Another example an IT program manager who runs complex
projects or programs from design and development to production. He or she also
defines resources and schedules implementation, directs and oversees the project
engineering team, performs assessments, as well designs and maintains technical
and project documentation. The last example of a professional with computer
networking training is a technical account manager. His or her responsibility
involves helping customers to make changes to accounts (such as updating
payment and production information) and assisting companies to forecast
revenue based on customer accounts.

Reliable training in this field can be obtained at Centennial College’s Computer
and Communications Network program. It is the only post-secondary institution in
Ontario to offer a bachelor’s degree program in Computer and Communication
Networking and results in a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Information Sciences.
Taking a university level program in a college setting offers a unique blend of
technology and business subjects, creating an innovative balance between the
practical and the theoretical backgrounds.

All of the courses within this computer networking training are offered in
equipped classrooms and state-of-the-art computer lab that are specially

Advanced Routing and Switching or Network Management. These course include:
Computer Network Fundamentals (introduces current networking technologies
models and concepts in network communications); LAN Switching and Routing
(teaches theory and implementation of Routing and Switching, the most
complicated and important functions in communications networking); Wireless
Networks (designed to provide students with necessary tools to help them
become part of the revolutionary change in communications and networking);
and more.
