Ten Years of @CiscoNetAcad with @OUCisco @OUstudents from @OpenUniversity ....

Do you remember November 2005 - a different era and much has happened since. That year and the particular month in question heralded the entry of the Open University onto the Cisco Networking Academy scene.

With a modest pilot of 273 students - the first presentation of T228 was a memorable experience for all the right reasons. Using version 3.1 of the CCNA - combined with Netlab and Day Schools - the two years of preparation slotted into place.

Having lost count somewhere around the 6000th student mark - we now offer CCNAv5, CCNPv7 and CCNA-Security-v2. Many have gone on and acquired Cisco certifications and/or their degree of choice.

In this time, the Open University has become a strategic member of the UK ASC (academy support centre) community - having the privilege of supporting other interesting and diverse Cisco Academies.

Today a new group of students start - same hopes, desires, dreams and opportunities. Each a part of our journey.
