View Curriculum
Requirements
  • This is a CCENT/CCNA Real World Labs Training so I assume you have a very good understanding of topics I cover (theory)
  • Understanding of the OSI model
  • Basic Router and Switch Configuration
  • Understanding of TCP/IP
Description
20 hours of Real World Videos and Packet Tracer / GNS3 Labs and Challenges!
Learn things that you really need to know.

Right... so you want to work in networking? Great choice... wait a minute... what about your experience? Oh... you read two books and played with Packet Tracer? That might NOT be enough!

  • 20+ hours of Real Life Networking videos (HD) including troubleshooting of switches, routers and access points (wireless), creating a perfect network diagram, installing and managing monitoring tools (PRTG, Kiwi Syslog etc.), applying for a job as a Cisco Engineer, working with Cisco TAC Support...
  • NO boring and useless topics which you will not find in the real world!
  • GNS3 and Packet Tracer Labs and Challenges
  • Real World Questions and Quizzes

.

Why are your videos better than 1000+ similar offers online?

Simple! Because it is ALL about real life examples! No boring and useless topics, no marketing, no useless commands - labs, labs, troubleshooting exercises....

I cover things that you SHOULD know but you will struggle to find in a book: network diagrams, monitoring tools, racks, applying for a Cisco job etc.

.

I am studying towards CCENT/CCNA. Will it help me get my cert?

Of course! There are a lot of questions and labs on your CCNA exam so for sure my videos and labs will help you prepare for your exam. However, my project is more focused on real life examples so not all CCNA/CCNA Sec topics will be covered and some will be covered in more details (including some CCNP topics and Microsoft topics). That's a good thing as you can use my videos at ANY stage of your career in Networking!

Who is the target audience?
  • Studying towards CCENT/CCNA or be certified already
  • Interested in real world networking examples
  • Interested in troubleshooting network devices
  • Studying for a Microsoft or Comptia exam and willing to learn more about Cisco Real World examples

A lot of CCNA students struggle with this concept. We will spend two videos showing what a native vlan is, how and when to use and... break the rules - yes - break the rules :)

What is this native vlan all about?
21:11

Time to break some rules again. Using a laptop to simulate a switch (trunk) and Wireshark to capture packets - we will see native vlans in action. A lot of fun sorting out issues. And I was sick at the time :)
