As of September 2016, after less than two years active as an ASC. The Open University Cisco Academy team was recognised by Cisco Systems as a 'Premier+' ASC. Similar to a three star rating, the accreditation is based on the work accomplished in community engagement.

We would have never have accomplished this without the support of all our academies and many others. Having the opportunity to apply for a grant based on our status - the OU ASC team decided to use these monies to give away mass distance based free CCNA1 instructor training, from Feb 14 2017.


We are proud to discover that we have been awarded again the status of Premier+ for Sept 2017 - moving us into the top 3% of Cisco ASC's.
