Course Description

UPS, cables, racks, failover tests, network diagrams, troubleshooting... things that you need to know and will struggle to find in a book!

You know that passing a Cisco exam is not enough, right? You need some real world experience. I appreciate it might not be easy. That's why I came up with this unique idea and recorded a real network refresh project. I use a special action camera so you can see all details (racking, cabling etc.).

If you are CCNA certified or you are studying towards that exam, you will get a chance to see a lot of topics from your book in action. This training will show you a network refresh project step by step. When things go wrong... I keep recording. There are no hidden or preconfigured tasks here. You will see everything live!

CCNA Real World Project covers:

  • Overview of project processes
  • Network diagrams
  • MS Project
  • Replacing core Cisco switches
  • Stacking Cisco switches

Contents and Overview

In over 6 hours of content, including 50 lectures, this course covers the full cycle of a simple network project. You will find quizzes and challenges to allow you to test your knowledge before moving to the next section.
