Short description of shared resource

The Cisco Networking Academy Program (CNAP) is a not-for-profit training series organized under the auspices of and in close cooperation with Cisco Systems. The CNAP program has been implemented worldwide since 1997, and in Poland since 2000 in cooperation with universities and secondary schools. The idea of creating regional and local academies is to reach as many listeners as possible in order to present them with modern knowledge on building, developing and maintaining local and wide area computer networks. During the course, participants both learn about the standards used in computer network construction and have the opportunity to acquire practical skills through laboratory exercises. The teaching materials as well as the program of laboratory exercises used during the course are updated on an ongoing basis in order to show the latest trends and present the most up-to-date knowledge in the field of computer networks.

In July 2001. The University of Gdansk was granted the status of a Cisco Regional Academy, and starting in October 2001, our institution began offering numerous courses. In 2012, due to changes in the structure of Cisco academies in Poland, our academy took on the roles of:
- Academy Support Center,
- Instructor Training Center.
