Why Learn from Me

In this course, you won’t just gain the book smarts to pass the exam. You’ll also hone your hands-on skills to succeed as a network engineer in the real world. I’m a professional instructor who has been entrusted by Cisco since 2007 to develop and deliver training courses for their own engineers and partners. I’ve also designed multiple training courses for the largest service providers in the Asia Pacific region such as IBM, Verizon, and the Australian National Broadband Network. I’ve spent years distilling my decade’s worth of networking experience from the field into mentoring and supporting other systems engineers, and I’m passionate about passing my knowledge of Cisco networks onto others.

 

Who is the target audience?

  • Anyone who wants to pass the Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching 200-125 exam and start or improve a career in networking.
  • IT helpdesk engineers who are interested in careers such as network engineers, network administrators, systems administrators, or solution architects. This course can help start your career journey into these fields.
  • Network engineers who are not Cisco CCNA certified or who have an expired certification. Even if you’re an experienced professional, you’ll fill gaps in your knowledge and master concepts like IPv6, EIGRP, OSPF, and BGP in this course.
  • IT professionals who want a comprehensive resource on Cisco networking theory, configuration and troubleshooting.
