Many study programs include courses on communication technology. All these courses explain the basis of communication technology, but they have different levels of detail depending on the study program and the related organization. Several courses include experimental activities, and some of these are based on certification related to a network device manufacturer. This article is based on the experience at the University of Stavanger, Norway, where two Bachelor-level courses based on the Cisco Certified Network Associate are offered. This article generalizes the outcome from this experience and aims to provide a guideline to create similar courses in different study programs. This article will address the course syllabus, the laboratory activity, and the examination by giving some best practice suggestions.
