Unless things have changed since I was in the academy program, you dont get a ccna upon completion of the course in your school, you still need to pay for the cert test and pass the exam
If you plan on pursuing networking, make sure you actually pay attention and try to maintain the highest grade possible... many people will skim things and barely pass the class and think theyre ready to take the ccna exam, but actually remembering what you learned is the best benefit in the academy program
Most of the students in the program seem to not even remember the OSI model, so make sure you memorize the material, apply it in real life and actually learn something...
