This course is over 35+ hours long and will cover all the needed subjects to be successful in passing the CCNA 200-120 exam.
But, it will also help the student prepare to pass Cisco's NEW CCENT / ICND1 (100-105) certification exam.
LET ME EXPLAIN:
This course has been updated to reflect everything you need for Cisco's new CCENT or ICND1 (100-105) certification exam.
Please keep in mind that the 200-120 course is still about 80% accurate for the new CCNA 200-125 certification exam.
Students will acquire the knowledge and practice labs in this course to make it transferable to real world use, as a Cisco and/or IT Professional.
DISCLAIMER: Please note that the simulators/emulators used in this course are not part of the course.
It is the students responsibility to copy my labs and practice with them. "Practice makes perfect!"
The Cisco Packet Tracer & VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary software and can only be obtained through Cisco.
But have more options that those. They can create their own lab with real equipment, get BOSON or GNS3.
It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course.
Please also NOTE:
.pkt files are not up-loadable to GlobED's site.
This means you would have to replicate my labs on each lecture here, in order to practice and follow along.
This course will give students an in-depth understanding of networking, using routers and switches and their various configurations and connections. Students will learn how to configure; default, static and dynamic routing. Students will comprehend how to manipulate each of the routing protocols attributes to meet the requirements of the network.
This course will also prepare the student in Layer 2 technology and its various configurations, such as; VLAN’s, VTP, STP, PortFast, EtherChannel, Port-Security, Inter-VLAN communication & Trunking.
Students will also acquire the knowledge needed to secure their routers through the use of Access-list, configuring the different types of NAT & will be able to manage the router’s components.
Students will also be able to thoroughly grasp the concepts of both Internet Protocols; IPv4 & IPv6.
Wide Area Network Protocols will also be covered; HDLC, PPP & Frame Relay. The student will also learn how to create redundancy in their networks through the use of Redundancy Protocols such as HSRP which is just as important. Also, within the WAN, the student will also learn how to create VPN’s and GRE Tunnels.
This is a full comprehensive course that will take you from A-Z in your quest for the CCNA (200-120)...and the new CCENT or ICND2 (100-105).
About "the book":
Throughout the course, you will hear me mention "your book", "a book" or "the book"...and if you're wondering why I don't mention a name...it's because this was done on purpose.
I don't want anyone to purchase a book if you already have one...all CCNA study guides cover the same topics in different manners. So if you already have a CCNA book, you can use it with this course.
However, for those that wonder which book I use in this course...here they are:
Cisco Press book for the new - CCENT / ICND1 (100-105)
Sybex book by Todd Lammle - CCNA 200-120 & his new book for the new CCENT / ICND1 (100-105)
Amazon book by Lazaro Diaz - The Only IP Book You Will Ever Need!
Students will have the best of both worlds...the information from the old exam and the information for the new exam CCEN or ICND1 (100-105)...and then some.
Hope you enjoy the course!
DISCLOSURE:I do not know Todd Lammle, I do not get referral fees and/or any compensation from him or Sybex, I just happen to think that his books are much easier to understand and follow. It is up to you (the student) to decide which book, if any, you want to use along with this course.
This can be the year to achieve your goals if you are serious about your certs!
If you are determined, ambitious and hungry for a new beginning...then this should be your year
...and how better to start or end the year than to get an IT Certification...Especially a Cisco CCNA Certification
Whether you are interested in the CCNA or the CCNP or you just want to understand the key topics for these, taking one or ALL my courses, will get you a lot closer to that goal.
But, don't take my word for it...please look at the FREE previews (they are available in all my courses) and see for yourself.
However, keep in mind that I'm also an author and you can find my books on AMAZON.
NOW...what you wanted to know about me but were afraid to ask:
If you are tired of the same old methods of learning and want someone that is pretty much unconventional, but at the same time will provide you with an enjoyable learning experience in layman's terms...then please preview my courses and you will discover that I am your guy.
I am a Network Engineer with many years in the field and in the teaching industry.
So, if anyone can get you certified it's me.
My teaching experience stems from teaching at institutions like Palm Beach Community College, New Horizons, Florida Career College (now Anthem College) and The Academy of South Florida not to mention that I also do private consulting.
Here I bring the classroom to you.
I am in several eLearning Platforms worldwide, to include my own...but you can look it up since I'm not allowed to put it here.
Courtesy of the internet, I have been teaching students from all over the world and all walks of life.... thank goodness for technology ;-)
Having been on all sides of the spectrum; as a student, a teacher/trainer, and in the field, I believe this uniquely qualifies me to understand you.
I know firsthand what you have been exposed to as opposed to what you really want to accomplish. These two are sometimes extremely conflicting and frustrating. That is why I teach in the manner I do and can relate to your rejection of the Status Quo.
I have taught corporate employees at MetroPCS (now T-Mobile) and have also taught IT professionals of companies like The Florida Marlins, Ulysse Nardin, Alberta Water Department (Canada), The Assurant Group, Hospital personnel & Attorney's firms, among others. to guide them in acquiring their IT certifications or general knowledge in IT and Networking.
However, my expertise also extends to being able to teach applications as well. YES...I am also an application instructor and qualified to teach Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. This, of course, includes the MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist) certification.
But Cisco is my passion ;-)
As you can see, I am a multifaceted person and consider myself to be an eternal student as well.
Remember that I too must keep up with technology since these changes seem to be daily, if not hourly.
I teach in an unconventional way that allows students to understand the subject matter and can, therefore, not only prepare them for a Cisco certification exam but help them apply my methods in the real world.
I strive to give the student a greater opportunity to be able to compete in the current job markets.
Do I go above and beyond what is needed for a certification?...YES, I do...because it's not only about getting a certification, but it's also about making sure that you, the student, are prepared for a job interview and/or maintaining your current job by enhancing your skills.
This is where I step in and make sure that you are prepared for whatever comes your way and make you become an asset to your employer.
Everyone has different requirements and I make sure, or at least I try, to provide information for most scenarios.
My classes and/or courses are very simple and that's how I like to teach. I truly believe in "KISS"...NO, I don't want to kiss you...this means "keep it simple stupid" -
If things are kept simple, easily explained in a way that the student can grasp quickly and retain the information...then I have achieved my goal.
For those that do not know me yet, you may not be used to my style of teaching, but you will soon get accustomed to it :)
I'm very laid back, I try to make learning fun and I teach in layman's terms...no physics jargon or mumbo jumbo in my teachings.
My courses are very interactive and extremely dynamic...you will not find my lectures monotone or boring, because falling asleep, for lack of excitement, is just NOT an option and NOT who I am.
Then just look for yourself at my video previews, which I always provide on ALL my courses. Therefore, you can then determine if I'm the right guy to help you get your industry-specific certifications.
I certainly hope that after a careful review of my credentials & testimonials (you can Google me you know) ...and see if I'm the Cisco Instructor you're looking for!
