ICND1 (CCENT) Training

ICND1 (Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices, Part 1) v3.0 is a five-day course that will enable students to understand QoS, virtualization and cloud services and network programmability related to WAN, access and core segments. It will provide the foundational understanding of network layers 1-3 that are applicable to core routing and switching plus other advanced technologies.

Configuration commands are introduced through examples and supported with lab exercises. A full suite of labs have been developed using the virtual IOS environment with flexible topologies that reinforce concepts with guided, hands-on discovery and challenge labs that align to each lesson module.

This course is presented using a combination of lecture and lab activities and incorporates all the material a student needs to pass the ICND1 exam and achieve the CCENT certification.

5 stars Excellent Instructor, materials, and facilities.

Brian done an excellent job in presentation of the material, answering questions, and providing solutions to subnetting problems.

4 stars Very good course

A very good course and a very knowledgeable instructor. I just wish I could have been given a little more help where needed. The instructor spent more time assisting those who seemed to know the material. He didn't seem concerned with assisting me as I asked questions or asked for help. Scheduling breaks besides lunch would have been nice also.

4 stars Pretty Good

Course overall was pretty good. The course book seems to need a bit up updating and more consistency between some of the screen shots according to what our instructor said.

5 stars I am taking so much away from this class

Bryan was great. I could not have asked for a better teacher. I have learned so much from this class, and I feel very prepared to take the icnd1 test. I will be taking the second portion that is icnd2 in about a month and I look forward to it.

5 stars By far the best training I have had
