CCNA FAQ - Cisco Certified Network Associate Frequently Asked Question

Types of Academies and Their Responsibilities
Q » What are the different types of Academies and their responsibilities in the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) Program?
A » There are three types of Academies: Local Academies, Regional Academies and Cisco Academy Training Centers (CATCs).
Local Academies teach the curriculum to students. These are usually high schools/secondary schools and colleges, but can also be other agencies with education programs.
Regional Academies are usually colleges, but may also be high schools/secondary schools, education service centers and other agencies with education programs. Regional Academy instructors train and mentor Local Academy instructors in the operation of the program and the teaching of the curriculum.
CATCs are Cisco-selected Regional Academies that train instructors from other Regional Academies. CATC instructors get their training directly from Cisco.
CATCs and Regional Academies can also be Local Academies if they teach the curriculum to students.
