Cisco Networking Academy and TAFE Enterprise - Networking the future
As the worldwide leader in IT, Cisco has a strong demand for qualified students with the necessary skills to succeed in the booming ICT industry. With the rapid growth of ICT expected to persist, TAFE Enterprise continues to assist Cisco by offering training through its Cisco Networking Academies to provide the industry with highly skilled workers.

- a learning platform that tracks student success and connects with educators and IT experts.
