  • A good understanding of networks.
  • The Cisco Packet Tracer or similar simulator
  • A desire to absorb the information to be able to apply it in a test environment or in a real world scenario

This course is over 10 hours in length and will cover
everything from connecting to a router, configuring administrative tasks on the
router, learning the routers internal components such as RAM, ROM, NVRAM and
FLASH; learning how to manipulate the Registers on the router, backing up
configurations, using the CDP protocol, and all aspects of Static, Default and
Dynamic routing.

Please Note: The Cisco Packet Tracer is a Cisco proprietary software and can only be given out by Cisco. So, if you hear me say in any of the lectures, that I would be providing the CPT, please disregard since I cannot do so.

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.

If you are unable to get a hold of the CPT, remember that you have other options, like: GNS3, Boson or even live equipment.

It is recommended that you use any of the simulators mentioned above to follow along with the course.

Students will get a thorough understanding of how the routing process actually works and they will also learn how to configure all inter-networking components using the Cisco Packet Tracer (link attached for download), look for it under external .

Students will also be configuring RIPv2, EIGRP and OSPF and understand how to manipulate each routing protocols attributes to meet the requirements of the network.

This is a lecture based course using the Touch-IT Technology Smart board, which will make learning very interactive and engaging.

Hands on labs will be used to drill down the concepts learned in each lecture using the Cisco’s Packet Tracer.

My method will make you feel like you are sitting in a classroom environment and give you the most needed hands on experience!

Handouts will be available to facilitate learning and practice.

This course is designed to help the student become comfortable with the routing concepts and router administration…but it will also help in preparing them for any networking certification or Computer Science Degree; not to mention the fact, that for those already in the field, it will further
improve routing decisions in their particular networks.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is intended for anyone that is preparing for a network certification or Computer Science Degree. However, it does go beyond that, it is also intended for those Networking and/or IT Professionals that are already in the field and need a better understanding of routing.

This lecture will explain the difference between what a routing protocol such as Ripv2, EIGRP or OSPF and a routed protocol such as IPv4 or IPv6 is.
Preview 04:37

In this lecture we will talk about what does routing really mean and the different types of routing, Default, static or dynamic and how would you make a decision on which one to use.
What does the term Routing mean?

 In this lecture you will learn what exactly happens when information travels from one network to a different network. Show examples of routing tables and how they learned those routes.

The IP Routing Process

In this lecture we will start learning the Administrative Distances, configurations on static routes and default routes
Preview 34:57

In this lecture we will create a 3 router lab from scratch and configure basic administration on the routers, then we will configure static routes and analyze what happens to the packet as we start configuring the routes and finally will add default routes to the stub routers and see what the routing table looks like.

Static and Default Routing Part2
Dynamic Routing
4 Lectures 01:45:05
In this lecture we will discuss the differences between RIPv2, EIGRP and OSPF. We will discuss also which routing protocol to use base on infrastructure you are working with an manufacturer of the router. We will look at the different variables that we must look at that will help us decide which routing protocol to use. 
The basics of Routing Protocols

In this lecture we will discuss how distance vector routing protocols choose to route a packet and how to avoid routing loops using Split-horizon.
Distance – Vector Routing Protocols

In this lecture I will show you how to configure RIPv2 and explain to you what exactly is happening in the routing table.
Routing Information Protocol (RIP)

In this lecture we will configure static routes using a higher administrative distance than RIP. We will also configure RIP and RIPv2 and analyze the routing tables behavior and how we would fix it so we can have full connectivity through the use of the RIPv2 routing protocol

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.

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, 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 physics jargon or mumbo jumbo in my teachings. My courses are very interactive and extremely dynamic! 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!
