Cisco Netriders Competition

Written by

There is a yet another chance for our Cisco students to register and compete with their peers worldwide in Netriders Skills Competition.


Cisco Networking Academy NetRiders IT skills competitions are a great opportunity for students and alumni in Africa to showcase their networking abilities, learn valuable new IT skills, and gain visibility among talent recruiters in the growing ICT and networking field.

We will be running 3 levels of competition in Africa. At all three levels, the majority of the questions deal with technical skills but there will be some questions about Internet of Things (IoT) and career soft skills.

  • CCNA - geared toward CCNA certifications and open to students currently enrolled in or recently completed the 3rd or 4th CCNA course
  • CCENT - geared toward CCENT certifications and open to students currently enrolled in or recently completed the 1st or 2nd CCNA course
  • IT Essentials - geared toward the IT Essentials course and open to students currently enrolled in or recently completed the IT Essentials course

Eligibility Information

For all the eligibility requirements and rules of an individual students can download the Rules PDF and FAQ files for the competition they are interested in. A few things to note about competition elibility:

  • Students must be currently or recently enrolled in a Cisco Networking Academy CCNA Routing and Switching, CCNA Discovery, CCNA Exploration or IT Essentials course in a country in Africa
  • Students represent the Cisco Networking Academy and therefore the country where they are currently enrolled or most recently completed a CCNA or IT Essentials course
  • Students must live in a country in Africa
  • Students may not compete in both CCNA and CCENT competitions in a calendar year
  • Students may only compete in CCNA and CCENT two times and in IT Essentials one time, so we recommend students are strategic in selecting the best year to compete in each level of competition based on courses enrolled in or recently completed and all other eligibility rules


Prizes are awarded at the end of Round Two for CCENT and IT Essentials and at the end of Round Three for CCNA.

The grand prize for CCNA is a one week study trip to USA fully paid funded for the top student in the region.

See the poster and brochure attached for more details. 

Registration will be open from Wednesday, 15 February 2017 through Friday, 21 April 2017.
