Planning your Class Schedule (CNET Certificate)

If you'd like help planning which courses to take for each semester while you're in the CNET program, you have come to the right place. Below is everything you'll need.

This flow chart depicts the order that Computer Networking (CNET) classes should be taken in the Electronics Department at Mt. San Antonio College. It shows that ELEC 11 and TECH 60 can be taken at any point. It shows that CNET 50 is the first class you should take. After CNET 50, CNET 52, 62, 64, 66, and 68 can be taken. It shows that CNET 54 should be taken after CNET 52, and that CNET 56 and 58 should be taken after CNET 54. It shows ELEC 50A can be taken at any point followed by ELEC 50B and then ELEC 56. No classes have strictly enforced pre-requisites. Instead our courses have ‘advisories’. Use this chart as a guideline for how to sequence your courses.

Semester  Classes Typically Offered
Fall   ELEC50A/50B, ELEC56, ELEC11, CNET50, CNET52, CNET54
Winter CNET64, CNET66, TECH60
Spring ELEC50A/50B, ELEC56, ELEC11, TECH60, CNET50, CNET56, CNET58

What to consider in your schedule are the following:

  • CNET50, ELEC50A, ELEC11 and TECH60 can be taken concurrently. None of these courses have material that is prerequisite to another
  • It is recommended to take CNET52 after CNET50 but not essential
  • Take CNET56 and CNET58 after CNET54
  • Take ELEC50B after ELEC50A
  • Take ELEC56 after ELEC50B
  • See the 3 year tentative class schedule on the Electronics Website
