Anthem Institute in Parsippany, N.J. recently introduced two new continuing education courses to complement professional development for network engineering and healthcare students and professionals.

  •     Cisco Networking Academy has partnered with Anthem Institute to offer the Cisco® CCNA® Exploration program, which gives students a comprehensive overview of networking concepts. The CCNA Exploration curriculum is hands-on and features simulation activities that lets students develop skills and knowledge to work in networking-related programs. It also helps them prepare for CCNA certification and further degree training. The program is 280 hours long and taught over a six-month period.
  •     BLS (Basic Life Support) for Healthcare Providers teaches cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills to use on patients of all ages, as well as training to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) and relieve a choking victim. The course follows American Heart Association guidelines on treating infants, children, and adults. It is taught over five hours on a single day. Students who successfully demonstrate proper CPR and clearing of airway obstructions will become CPR certified.

“We are excited to offer continuing education courses that complement two of our Diploma programs,” says Diane Gilles, Campus President for Anthem Institute-Parsippany. “These courses are excellent CEU opportunities for graduates of our CNS [Computer Networking & Security] and healthcare programs and other industry professionals.”

The first CCNA Exploration program begins March 26, 2012 and will last through September 26, 2012. The registration and payment deadline for each of the four, five-week courses is seven days before each start date. Future dates have not yet been announced. The BLS program will be held each day from February 22-25, 2012.
