SCC Instructor Recognized by Cisco as Expert Level Instructor

Kelly Caudle(March 31, 2014) As a result of his impressive accomplishments and contributions to the Cisco Networking Academy, Kelly Caudle, Program Head, Information Systems Security and Lead Contact and Instructor Trainer for the Cisco Networking Academy at Stanly Community College (SCC), was recognized as an Expert Level Instructor by Cisco. This award recognizes his achievements as one of the top 10 percent of instructors globally in the areas of: participation in professional development opportunities, attention to student need, student performance, and use of resources.

Since 1999, SCC has been a regional site for the Cisco Networking Academy that helps individuals prepare for industry-recognized certifications and entry-level information and communication technology (ICT) careers in virtually every type of industry. The courses cover a range of topics from basic network design and theory to network security and advanced troubleshooting tools. 21st century skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration are integrated into the curricula to help students succeed in their careers.

SCC prides itself on having instructors who maintain current certifications in the ICT industry. “All the students that take Cisco classes at SCC are prepared to work not only in Stanly County, but throughout the state and our region,” noted Kelly Caudle. “We teach our students everything from the basics to the advanced topics in this program. They learn how to install and configure servers, switching, routing, security, blocking and allowing sites, and so much more. When you turn your cell phone on and it connects to a cell tower, chances are one of my students probably configured the routing and switching that takes place in the cell tower, so that you can get on to the cell network and use your cell phone. We teach our students how to make the equipment work. Many know the theory of how the equipment works, but if you don’t know how to literally program the equipment, you can’t make it work,” added Kelly.
