Gain an edge over others with this comprehensive, complete understanding, and hands-on course OSPF's routing protocol!

This course is designed to cover ALL the Cisco CCNA (ICND1 & ICND2) level OSPF curriculum. However, this course is a more high-level course which will also introduce many of the topics related to the Cisco CCNP ROUTE curriculum! Students will also follow along using their LAB environment of choice to gain real-world, hands on experience!

Why do we teach both CCNA and CCNP Topics?

  1. Allows sutdents studying for the CCNA to have a much better understanding of all the KEY TOPICS
  2. Allows students looking to move into the industry, to know OSPF in more detail, so they can answer interview question confidently, or perform in the workplace at a higher level.
  3. Allows students looking to prepare for their CCNP ROUTE exam an advantage as this material introduces many of the CCNP level topics relating to OSPF
  4. Students that have not utilized or studied OSPF that hold a valid CCNA, can use this course to prepare for their CCNP studes.

Presenting both CCNA and CCNP level material really allows students to have a solid conceptual understanding of OSPF. This course breaks down the KEY IMPORTANT TOPICS so you UNDERSTAND them thoroughly!

★★★★★   Keith has an engaging teaching style that held my attention very well. I appreciated the practice subnetting questions and the 'cheat sheet' that he provides at the end. I would definitely recommend this course and this instructor - in fact I've already bought another course from him!

★★★★★  Great course and excellent teaching methodology!

★★★★★  Love the way Keith teaches. He phrases concepts in a manner that is easy to follow and understand!

How YOU will LEARN!

Keith is an industry professional with many years of experience. He began his teaching in classroom environments through various consulting positions he has held. Keith loves interacting with students to make the learning not only valuable to the student, but fun as well. Keith will joke around, impersonate random characters, but his teaching method has quickly become a favorite.

This course requires you to be engaged! Keith will teach this course as if you were in an actual classroom environment!

He utilizes whiteboard styled teaching for most of the course just as if you were sitting in a classroom learning the same information. The course is not read from a script, which means you do not listen to Keith sound like a robot reading material and get bored - he will be speaking to you as if you are sitting in a room with him.(SO BE SURE TO SAY HI)

The course expects you to be engaged, taking notes and writing down information as he teaches it. Study the information he tells you is important for your exams!  You will also be required to have a LAB environment, being physical or virtual to practice all of the configurations with me!

Hello everyone, Im Keith and I have been working in the IT industry for a little over 6 years now, working for both small companies and large fortune 500 companies. Working for a variety of companies in different industries has allowed me to gain a great insight on the important roles and responsibilities in the networking industry. Being in IT is a fun, but at times, challenging career. Technology is always evolving so it is important to stay well educated in many domains so you can grow with the technology and keep a strong, secure, and healthy network. 

I began teaching in 2016 in small classroom environments, for different consulting jobs I had. That has lead me to dive into the world of online education which I only hope grows so I can help educate those who are eager to learn the material to be successful in today's technologically advanced industries.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, and please connect with me on LinkedIN and Google+.
