The mission of Network Technology Academy Institute is to train students and help them acquire the technical knowledge and skills necessary to become and remain ‘highly relevant’ and successful in this ever-changing technological world. Our focus since the start has been to give our students the greatest opportunity for success at the forefront of technology. We incorporate the latest research on student learning styles, learning partner resources, and experiences gained from more than 20 years of training IT professionals to build our model for serving our students.
Our teaching methodology is influenced by our F.A.S.T. framework. We live in a fast past world, and it is our responsibility to prepare students for the realities they will face when they complete their training at NTAi.
DEVELOP LOGICAL THINKING
Technology is no longer about the mechanics of setting up equipment.
Moving forward it is all about the individual’s ability to understand abstract concepts and apply this specialized knowledge in ways we can currently not predict.
The world is changing, and different technologies will come and go; however, the need for people who can learn and think will always be in demand in the marketplace.
LEARN FOR YOUR FUTURE GOALS
Network Technology Academy Institute enables individuals to acquire the technical knowledge and skills necessary to become ‘relevant’ and successful in this ever-changing technological world.
Some things you learn best by doing. It may be enough to understand concepts in other subjects, but when a
couple thousand people
depend on your competence and the decisions you make we don’t want to mess around. You’ll build the confidence necessary to make the tough decisions under stressful timelines.
Network Technology Academy Institute
is focused on bringing cutting edge technology in networking, internet security, software, virtualization, data science and analytics, artificial intelligence, and Internet of Things to local communities in New England and beyond.
NTAi was founded in 2003 as a 501c3. For the past two decades has helped to reskill the unemployed, underemployed, and businesses with state of the art career advancement training. Under Axell Emmanuel’s leadership the academy has built relationships with Microsoft, Cisco, EMC, VMware, Palo Alto Security, Google, Amazon, and more. We’ve been able to take these partnerships and create programs that take new IT professionals from the bottom to the top of their careers in 1 to 5 years. We also take established professionals and help them earn highest levels of professional certification available anywhere.
Over the past fifteen years we’ve been able to help many students earn their Cisco CCIE credentials. To provide some context— during a Cisco Live US-2013 Presentation
Cisco reported there were approximately 38,005 CCIEs on the planet. Since then we have helped people get certified in additional technologies for software, web development. Our newest training and certification programs include data science, and analytics, and the Internet of Things.
Our mission is to help more people reach their highest career levels, and help them qualify for and get high paying jobs, while having the freedom to shape their own destinies.
What We Do
We help people, in diverse circumstance, grow their IT and software experience as quickly as possible.
Founder Axell Emmanuel, the “Cisco Guru,” and a team of over 16 industry experts skilled in technologies such as Cisco, Microsoft, VMWare, EMC, Security, Palo Alto Networks, Citrix, Adobe, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Firewalls and IT Defense Compliance.

Why We Do it
There is a great need to reduce our the United States’ unemployment and underemployment problems. There are many underemployed hidden in our communities.
occurs when a person does not work full time or takes a job that does not reflect their actual training and financial needs. That is, their job doesn’t use all their skills and education, or provides less than full time work or a low salary through no fault of the worker. Outsourcing to countries beyond America’s shores is a major reason why there are so many underemployed in the US. NTAI has programs that utilize Federal and State funding to help re-skill people whose jobs were exported or outsourced overseas.
However, there is an even greater need to train our youth for skilled jobs.
Right now, there is a big gap between the number of certified Network and System Engineers, Data Scientists, and AI Engineers and the number of high-level jobs available. We have a passion for creating and nurturing top-level IT, data, and AI professionals. As millions more people get online, and more of our lives become connected, we will see an exploding demand for skilled professionals who can confidently navigate the networking, data, and AI-driven world.
Training the next generation of engineers, scientists, and technology managers helps to close the gap between qualified candidates and available jobs, reduce unemployment, and help our community be prepared for the future.
This is a WIN-WIN-WIN for everyone!
NTAI wins because we have an opportunity to share our trainers’ experiences gathered over many decades.
The student wins as they develop hands-on skills and book smarts relevant to their career, and they become part of a larger technical community.
Employers win because they get access to qualified professionals experienced using real equipment to solve practical industrial problems.
The community wins because people with good jobs contribute to the well being of society, are able to take care of their families, and set a positive example for the youth entering the workforce in the near future.
How We Do It
NTAi has over 15 years of experience training IT and data professionals. We focus on helping our students become highly competent
confident at what they do.
Students are able to make consistent progress each week because we try to give everyone the appropriate amount of attention and resources to get the job done.
Here are just a few of the ways that we help our students:
You get access to a dean recognized by the Cisco Networking Academy as an Expert Level Instructor who personally assesses each student’s aptitude for the course PRIOR to beginning. The Data Science, Analytics, AI, and software program training staff also do rigorous aptitude assessments as part of the intake process.
We have fully integrated curricula that takes the student from zero to certification in a short period of time. We include test-based learning and certification as a key component of both the curriculum and tuition.
NTAi staff can help guide unemployed and underemployed through the confusing process to receive approval and funding from state and federal programs targeted at reskilling the workforce.
NTAi provides an academic mentor to each student to ensure success. They also have access to a personal advisor to help manage life events that might interfere with academics and technical training.
Students get access to real equipment onsite and remotely. We help can students get training equipment if necessary.
Hands-on experience is the primary focus. We take an active role in taking you beyond just reading the book.
