Communicating with Me

  • Only use the e-mail address I gave you in class to communicate with me.
  • Do not use my address and do not e-mail me via Blackboard.

Required for all Assignments

  • No late assignments will be accepted.
  • Make sure that your full name is neatly written on your assignment.
  • Submit a typed hardcopy at the beginning of class.
  • If you use the RTF or DocX template I supply, type your answers in the table below each question.
    • If you do not use the template I supply, make sure your answers stand out from the text of the question. i.e. bold or underlined, not both.
  • Do not double space.
  • Do not type your answers in all uppercase.
  • Print out your assignments before you come to class.
    • Do not rely on the printer or network in our classroom to be available or functional.
  • Make sure that the correct assignment number and chapter are on your paper. Be mindful that the assignment number is not always the same as the chapter number.
  • E-mail your assignment only if you are going to be absent, and at least 2 hours before class starts, on the day that the assignment is due. This should ensure that I receive your assignment before the start of class.
  • No late assignments will be accepted.

As of February 24, 2020, all current Cisco certifications will be retired, and Cisco will begin offering new certification programs.

The good news is if you’re working toward any current CCNA certification, keep going. You have until February 24, 2020 to complete your current CCNA. If you already have CCENT/ICND1 certification and would like to earn CCNA, you have until February 23, 2020 to complete your CCNA certification in the current program.  Likewise, if you’re thinking of completing the current CCENT/ICND1, ICND2, or CCNA Routing and Switching certification, you can still complete them between now and February 23, 2020.
