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.

|Section 1: The Design and Purpose of Vlans|
This Lecture is an introduction to this course. It will explain the importance and benefits a student will extract after finishing each lecture...and how this will ultimately help the student when taking their the CCNA certification exam. It will also explain how to apply these concepts to a real world environment.
This lecture will explain IP addressing involved in the network and will show the student how to assign the proper addresses to the servers. It will also show how to configure different services on the servers within the Cisco Packet Tracer. Students will be creating multiple DHCP scopes for the VLANs, and configure the external Web Server and its DNS.
This lecture will explain how to create a VLAN, name the VLAN and assign them to a port or range of ports. It will also show how to trunk ports and which ports need to be trunked.
|Section 2: Router Configuration|
In this lecture the student will learn how to access the router through the console port using a console cable, using a terminal emulation program as you would in the CCNA certification or the real world. Students will also be configuring basic administrative task (House Keeping) on the router and understand the importance of these command to include their purpose and function.
In this lecture students will be learning and configuring the IP helper-address in the sub-interfaces of the router, to allow the client machines acquire an IP address from the DHCP server. Students will learn about the encapsulation used for inter-vlan connectivity and how to configure it.
In this lecture students will be finishing the configurations on both routers and configure the distance vector routing protocol RIPv2 . Students will get a brief introduction to RIPv2 protocol and verify that it is working through the use of show commands on the router.
|Section 3: Securing the Network with Access-List|
In this lecture students will learn about standard access-list and how to configure and apply them on the router. Students will create an access-list to block a particular host and then block an entire subnet, always verifying to make sure that the access-list is working properly.
In this lecture students will learn about extended access-list and how to configure and apply them on the router. Students will be controlling the type of access that hosts on a network can access on a particular server. In the Lab, the student will be denying access to port 80. They will then verify that the access-list is working properly using various methods.
|Section 4: Network Address Translation (NAT)|
|This Lecture briefly explains the three different types of NAT we use in todays networks.|
This Lecture will explain how a private IP address gets translated to a public IP address to allow access to the internet and/or go online. Student will learn the terminology of Inside Local, Inside Global, Outside Local and Outside Global as it pertains to NAT.
This lecture will explain and show how to configure the NAT Overload or PAT on the router. The student will be able to verify if NAT is translating by using appropriate commands.
|Section 5: Finishing Up|
This lecture will explain and show how to verify that all the configurations are working as intended.
In this lecture the student will backup their startup configurations of both routers to the TFTP server.
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 or even the CCNP Route or just want to understand the key topics of these certification exams, taking one or ALL of my courses, will get you a lot closer to that goal.
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 among other projects that I want to complete in 2017.
So, yes, my schedule will be quite full and I love it!
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, 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!
