About Cisco Networking Academy – It began as an act of community. In 1997, Cisco donated some networking equipment to a local school. But no one was trained on it, so the gear sat unused. This initial donation led to a valuable insight. Technology is truly powerful when combined with education. Cisco Networking Academy was born that day, as we trained the staff to build their network. It became a movement. Cisco Networking Academy quickly grew from a single school to become an ever-expanding community of students, educators, employers, NGOs, Cisco employees, and customers. Now taught in 180 countries, we help shape communities and economies around the globe. Impacting the lives of 10.9 million students, we’ve created a pipeline of technical talent ready to innovate and shape the future. In partnership with 26,500 educators at 12,100 academies, we’re working with educators and instructors all over the world to deliver the best curricula for today’s world. Amounting to $2.6 billion, Cisco Networking Academy has made in-kind contributions worth billions in tools, resources, and support to students, schools, and instructors. Leading to our goal: one billion people by 2025, by empowering individuals and organizations with problem-solving skills and transformative technologies, we will help bring the benefits of digitization to one billion people by 2025.
