What you'll learn
- Once the student finishes the IP Helper-Address lecture in this course, they will have a strong understanding of the topics covered.
- The understanding of the topics covered is an essential element for any Networking Professional.
- Hands-on-Labs will include; Routing, Switching and Access-Lists. This will come in very handy when configuring these at the CCNA testing site.
- Students will be able to create and implement an IP addressing scheme, configure and assign vlans, configure and assign access-lists, the NAT protocol and more
- This course will prepare the student for the networking certification such as the CCNA or CCNA 2013.
- Taking this course translates into making the student familiar with all of these topics so the student can prepare to pass the certification exam
- Of course, not to mention that this course will give student a big understanding of ALL these topic
- A basic understanding of networks and the desire to learn.
This course is almost 3 hours in length and will cover several aspects of the CCNA certification. Topics covered in this course will include; IP configuration, Vlan and Inter-Vlan communication, the use of the IP Helper-Address, Access-List (both extended and standard), the NAT protocol and backing up the startup-configurations to a TFTP server.
This course is very different from the rest because It's the beginning of a new way of teaching using Smart Board Technology. (We've come along way from the traditional Whiteboard).
This is a fun & interactive course that will give you the knowledge to master these subjects and prepare you for the CCNA certification. (..and yes, I said fun!)
You will need a simulator if you want to follow along. (i.e.: Cisco Packet Tracer, GNS3, Boson or live equipment). The course was created with the Cisco Packet Tracer.
Please Note: Unfortunately, the Cisco Packet Tracer is proprietary to Cisco and it is not part of this course. So, if in any of the lectures, you hear me say that I would provide the CPT, please disregard this for I cannot provide it and it is not part of the course.
DISCLAIMER: Please note that the simulators/emulators used in this course are not part of the course. It is the students responsibility to have these to practice with. The Cisco Packet Tracer and/or VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary software and can only be obtained through Cisco. It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course.
The course will also show students advanced configurations of the Cisco Packet Tracer Server components, DHCP, DNS and HTTP. Students will acquire and have a better understanding of the topics covered to guide them towards the CCNA or CCNAX certification.
This course is primarily hands on using the Cisco Packet Tracer with some lectures using the NEW & Improved Smart Board Technology. This type of course is most helpful, not only for the CCNA, but also for real world implementation of networks.
Handouts and labs will be available to facilitate learning and practice.
Once the student finishes the course they will be comfortable with IP configurations, Vlans, Access-lists, and Router configuration. It will also help them in preparing for the CCNA certification so they can have an advantage and pass the exam…also, for those already in the field, it will help them to better understand the use of the topics covered so they can implement it in their prospective networks.
(Please always check the ANNOUNCEMENTS section for new updates and events, since I am always letting you guys know of my newest and latest endeavors!)
Who this course is for:
- This course is intended for anyone that is preparing for the CCNA or CCNA 2013 certification. However, it does go beyond that, it is also intended for those Networking Professionals that are already in the field and need to acquire a better understanding of the topics covered.
This can be the year to achieve your goals if you are serious about you 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
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!
