This course will cover all aspects of IPv4. Students will learn IP addressing, Subnetting, VLSM, Route Summarization, Wildcard Masking, common Network equipment, basic Router administrative commands, configuring Router interfaces, planning a Network infrastructure and many other topics that are important and needed, not just for certification purposes, but also for real world scenarios.
The course will also show students how to assign IP addresses to PC’s and Routers. As well as gaining an understanding of the TCP/IP properties such as gateways.
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. Students have other options like GNS3, BOSOM or Live Equipment.
This is a lecture based course using hands on labs. My method will make you feel like you are sitting in a classroom environment and give you some hands on experience.
Handouts and labs will be available to facilitate learning and practice.
My IPv4 course will help you in becoming comfortable with, not only with the IPv4 protocol, but it will also help you in preparing for any networking certification and Computer Science Degree; not to mention the fact, that for those that are going for a Cisco certification exam, it will help you in calculating IP addresses without a calculator, since a calculator is NOT allowed in a testing site.. This method should expedite the way you convert in order to make you faster, better and stronger to pass the test!
Please be aware that I have authored a book on IPv4 that is available on AMAZON called "The Only IP Book You Will Ever Need!". For those interested, this book along with this course, will help you achieve a greater understanding of this still relevant protocol.
(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).
See you in the course!
In this lecture, I will briefly discuss the topics that we will be learning.
This lecture will provide you with a common knowledge of end devices and Networking devices you will use on a network. Will briefly discuss collision domains and broadcast domains, which will allow you to make better decision when designing, or troubleshooting your network
In this lecture you will not only learn what an IP address is and its use, but you will also learn the format of an IP address and how it divides into host and networks.
In this lecture, you will learn that some IP addresses are reserved and cant be assigned to interfaces. Examples would be loopback address, Broadcast address,or Multicast addresses.

2017 will be our year to achieve our many goals! ...yes, I include myself here as well.
If you are determined, ambitious and hungry for a new beginning...then 2017 should be your year!
...and how better to start or end the year than to get your Cisco Certification!
Whether you are interested in the CCNA R/S, the CCENT, ICND2, the CCNP, or you just want to understand the key topics of these certification, taking one or ALL of my courses, will get you a lot closer to that goal with my courses.
But, don't take my word for it...please take a look at the FREE previews (they are available in all my courses) and see for yourself.
As for me, 2017 will be the year of putting out new courses for different types of IT certifications among other things.
These will include, not just Cisco courses, but also CompTIA & Microsoft courses as well.
I also hope to complete my second book based on ALL the Routing Protocols in 2017.
My first book is available in AMAZON and it's called "The Only IP Book You Will Ever Need!"
So, yes, with all these great plans for the future, my schedule will be quite full but fulfilling!
What you wanted to know about me:
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 over 15+ years in the field and in the teaching industry. I hold the following certifications: CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, Security+, Network+, A+, MCP, MCTS & MOS and since I passed the first of two test for the CCIE, I hope to complete the second half in 2017!
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 teaching at my own training facility in Miami, Florida and now being if several e-Learning platforms world-wide.
Having been in all sides of the spectrum; as a student, a teacher/trainer, and in the field, I believe this uniquely qualifies me to understand the student, and what they have been exposed to as opposed to what they 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 the student's rejection of the Status Quo.
I have taught corporate employees at MetroPCS (now T-Mobil) 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 CCNA certification and/or their Microsoft certifications; like the MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist). YES!...I am also an applications instructor and also teach Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access.
I teach in an unconventional way that allows for students to understand the subject matter and can therefore, not only prepare them for a Cisco and/or Microsoft certification exam, but apply my methods in the real world. I strive to give the student a greater opportunity 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, it's also about making sure the student is prepared for a job interview and/or maintaining their current job by enhancing their skills. This is where I step in and make sure that the student is prepared for whatever they need and make them an asset to their 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, what this means "keep it simple stupid" - If things are kept simple, easy and 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. Just take a look for yourself at my video previews, which I always provide on ALL my courses, so you can 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 it you know!), I'm the Cisco & Microsoft Instructor you're looking for!
