What am I going to get from this course?
What are the requirements?
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.
What is the target audience?
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 many years in the field and in the teaching industry. I hold the following certifications: CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, CCNP, Security+, Network+, A+, MCP, MCTS & MOS and since then, I have passed the first of the required two test for the CCIE.
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 that I also do private consulting.
Now, I bring the classroom to you by being in several e-Learning platforms world-wide, teaching over 100K students...courtesy of the internet. Thank goodness for technology! ;-)
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 you, the student. I know first hand what you have been exposed to as opposed to what you 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 your rejection of the Status Quo.
I have taught corporate employees at MetroPCS (now T-Mobile) 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 IT certifications or general knowledge.
However, my expertice also extends to being able to teach applications as well. YES!...I am also an applications instructor and qualified to teach Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access.This of course includes the MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist) certification.
As you can see, I am a multifaceted person and consider myself to be an eternal student as well.
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, Microsoft or CompTIA 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 that you, the student, is prepared for a job interview and/or maintaining your current job by enhancing your skills. This is where I step in and make sure that you are prepared for whatever you need and make you an asset to your 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, easily 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 or CompTIA Instructor you're looking for!
