My name is Kiel Martin CCIE #54443. I have been teaching Cisco topics for a while now and I take great pride in getting others to use the equipment to get the answers that they are seeking. So I spend lots of time helping others to learn the basics and advanced topics of Routing and Switching. We spend lots of time behind the command line and using labs to provide us the answers that theory claims to exist. Come learn the concepts the right way.

When is comes to understanding what it takes to pass, I do not sugar coat it. I currently work as a Network Engineer in a Multi-Tier Large Enterprise environments. My teaching techniques are based on the concept of keeping it simple and straight to the point. You will notice a difference in my teaching immediately.
