Academy Impact Profile 2013CaliforniaPreparing Today’s Students for Tomorrow’s ChallengesFor a competitive and sustainable economy, the United States must have a skilledand well-trained workforce that can meet the evolving needs of industry. Studentsmust now acquire problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, in addition tospecific job-related expertise, to reach their full potential as a vital work resource.The growth of global networks has resulted in a shortage of people qualified todesign, build, manage and secure the information infrastructure needed to dobusiness, support communications, and even save lives. Every business, school,hospital, nonprofit, and other organization that relies on intelligent networks needstrained professionals to keep them running and secure.A workforce that is well-schooled in information and communications technology(ICT) and engineering can spur innovation across many industries, which in turninspires additional opportunities to fuel productivity and economic growth. ICTinvestments are expected to play a major role in generating stable, high-payingjobs and boosting the nation’s GDP.An Innovative Education Program that Supports StandardsCisco Networking Academy is a technology education program that partners withpublic and private organizations to provide the knowledge and skills required forcareer- and college-ready students. Students acquire basic-to-advancedknowledge of information communications technology and learn networking skills.They develop the analytic, teamwork, and efficiency skills and the self-confidencethat are so essential in the 21st century, both in the job world and in college.Coursework reflects all STEM Cluster Topics, and teaches many of the reading andwriting Common Core Standards for technical subjects. College-ready studentsstrengthen their understanding of technology, as well as math, science, andengineering concepts, improving success in their advanced studies. Career-readystudents prepare for globally recognized certifications.“Cisco is the firstvendor to offer a robustnetworking certificationportfolio that meets theANSI accreditationstandard.”Yahoo! Finance1/16/2013“Most of my students getmultiple job offers beforethey even graduate.”David Kotfila,Director/Instructor,Rennselaer PolytechnicInstitute, NYTechnical and Career-Ready SkillsCourses include IT Essentials, Cisco CCNA (Cisco Certified NetworkingAssociate), CCNA Security, and the more advanced Cisco CCNP (Cisco CertifiedNetworking Professional).With a focus on learning technical skills, the instructional approach encouragesstudent engagement and the ability to synthesize what they learn and apply it inother contexts. Course content integrates four skill areas identified by educationresearchers as critical for 21st century workers: Problem solving and decision making: Students practice and test their knowledge by configuringand troubleshooting networks using hands-on labs and simulation software; real-world scenariosdevelop advanced problem-solving techniques.Creative and critical thinking: Students understand the how and why of networking by combininghands-on learning with conceptual and analytical exercises.Collaboration, communication, and negotiation: Students acquire individual and teamwork skillsby performing lab exercises and practicing problem solving within business scenarios.Intellectual curiosity and information handling: Students develop the ability to locate, select,structure, and evaluate information.Courses also prepare and motivate students to pursue further education or certification. Many go on to apply theirskills on the job or in their own businesses. 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates. Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.Page 2 of 8

We see millions of students,each with a unique educational experience and a track record of accomplishments beyond the classroom. Theirstories are our story.A Career at the Convergence of Business and TechnologyThe diverse skills acquired in Cisco Networking Academy courses give Kyle Thoms an edge in a customer-facing job.The generation that has come of age since the millennium is nothing if not tech savvy.They rely more on digital technology than any other age group. Despite being “digitalnatives,” many of these millennials don’t realize that well-rounded technical courseworkcan give them a distinct advantage in the job market, even if they don’t end up in a handson technical career.Born in 1984, Kyle Thoms got his first computer when he was 10 and “has been hookedever since,” but he thought of computing as more of a hobby than a vocation. He majoredin telecommunications at Indiana University, concentrating on media design andproduction. It wasn’t until he got to graduate school that he was introduced to CiscoNetworking Academy courses, and learned some of the essential skills he needed tobecome a successful account manager at a global information and communicationstechnology (ICT) services company.Roundabout Route to Networking“I came to the Networking Academy in kind of a roundabout way,”Thoms says. “When I graduated in 2007, I realized it was going tobe tough finding a job in my original field. But I had heard aninspirational talk by Rayford Steele when I was a sophomore, andthat got me thinking about ICT.”“When I work withthe engineers andtechnicians, thetechnical knowledgecomes in veryhandy, and they’reusually surprised byhow much I knowabout the specifics.That adds to mycredibility, both withthem and also withcustomers.”Professor Rayford Steele is the founding director of the Center forInformation and Communication Sciences (CICS) at Ball StateUniversity in Muncie, Indiana. CICS offers a master’s degreeprogram that focuses on preparing students for ICT positions thatcombine technological expertise with management and analyticalskills. “I decided that if I could get a graduate assistantship to covertuition, I would apply for the CICS program,” Thoms says. “It’s ahybrid of business and technology studies that includes theNetworking Academy Cisco CCNA networking associate courses.”Thoms became a graduate assistant for CICS Professor Ron Kovac, who received anexcellence in teaching award from Cisco in 2007 for encouraging academic rigor andsuccess. “I was given the award for being tough,” Kovac said.Thoms agrees with that assessment: “Dr. Kovac was known as the toughest advisor inthe program. He convinced me to take the full set of CCNA courses, and he alsorequired outside activities. I did quality-assurance testing for other Networking Academyprograms at high schools and colleges around Indiana. We talked to students, madesure things were running smoothly, and built relationships for future support. I alsoorganized an academy conference in Indianapolis and tutored other students.” 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates. Cisco Systems, Inc.

Inmy present job,those are the abilitiesI use most.”Page 6 of 8

2013 Academy Impact ProfileCaliforniaOne upshot of his graduate experience was learning to collaborate on class projects. “I was used to sitting at acomputer doing my work solo,” he recalls. “But when it comes to networks, it’s best to work in a team and getinput from other people who might know more than you do. Often I found myself leading the group, so I alsoneeded to learn leadership and teaching skills. In my present job, those are the abilities I use most.”Diverse Conversations with CustomersEven before obtaining his master’s degree, Thoms landed a position as an account associate in the Chicagooffices of Orange Business Services, having been recommended by his professors at CICS. Orange, a global ICTservices provider, was the first company to attain the Cisco Global Certified Partner designation. After an 18month apprentice period learning the marketing ropes, Thoms became a full-fledged account manager in early2010. His client portfolio has included 10 Fortune 500 companies, all of which have unique networking needs andrequirements.“My sales job doesn’t require hands-on networking skills,” he remarks. “It’s mostly about developing andmaintaining relationships. But when I work with the engineers and technicians, the technical knowledge comes invery handy, and they’re usually surprised by how much I do know about the specifics. That adds to my credibility,both with them and also with customers. For example, I work very closely with a solutions architect for a largecustomer, and I can talk to him about technical issues—like hub-and-spoke networks versus mesh networks—without having a sales engineer translate for us.”“My biggest challenges are making my sales numbers and keeping customers happy,” Thoms continues. “Thatmeans designing cost-effective solutions that will positively impact the customer from a number of perspectives.And it also means showing them how they can benefit from innovative new technologies, such as CiscoTelePresence . As I move through the sales cycle, my presentations have to appeal to broader audiences. I haveto tailor them to C-level executives as well as to the technical managers—sometimes all sitting in the same room. Ilearned a lot about public speaking in Networking Academy courses, working with students who had variousbackgrounds, and watching Dr. Kovac give lectures to nontechnical people.”Real-Life Knowledge TransferThoms considers himself an “adult learner” because he didn’t encounter the NetworkingAcademy coursework until he was in graduate school. But he knows others who wereconsiderably older when they decided to make a career change and enter the program.“Generally, today’s younger students are into technology early, so they don’t need to studythe basics. Going back to school when you’re older can require a different path. But inboth cases, it’s about discovery: discovering the subject and discovering things aboutyourself and your own abilities.”Looking to the future, Thoms thinks he may ultimately end up teaching at the college level,transmitting to a new generation what he knows and continues to learn as he works at theconvergence of business and technology. He is also interested in the regulatory side of theindustry, which might take him into the legal arena. “I think my technology experiencewould really make a difference,” he says. “I don’t believe it’s very common amongbusiness or law professors.”“My presentationshave to appeal toC-level executivesas well as totechnicalmanagers—sometimes allsitting in thesame room.”For students who don’t have much hands-on technology background, Thoms has this advice: “Don’t beintimidated if you lack networking experience. The Networking Academy courses are geared toward learning fromthe ground up. You’ll be taught what you need to know. It’s not a cakewalk, but when you come out, you’re goingto have real-life skills that you can take directly to an employer.”In many ways, Kyle Thoms typifies his generation’s complex relationship to technology. He grew up immersed incomputing, and he leveraged those skills as an undergraduate. But he also had to be flexible enough to changecourse and master a new set of hard and soft skills after he graduated. This knack for adaptability has alwaysbeen encouraged in the Networking Academy, and it should serve students well in the years ahead. 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates. Cisco Systems, Inc.
