Why Global Knowledge?
We have delivered a Cisco Authorized CCNA Boot Camp longer than any other Cisco Learning Partner, and we've helped thousands of network technicians prepare for and pass the Cisco CCNA exam. To maximize your classroom experience and ensure that you get comprehensive coverage of the CCNA materials, our three-step, blended learning approach to the CCNA Boot Camp consists of:
1) Pre-Class Activity: Approximately ten hours of review materials and exercises - including a pre-test assessment, Self-Paced e-Learning content, and a readiness test - designed to give you a firm foundation and help you get the most out of your time in class.
2) Classroom Instruction and Hands-On Labs: Our instructor-led training goes above and beyond the standard Cisco courseware with enhanced content and 24-hour access to the hands-on labs. To ensure the most real-world experience possible during your time in class, each pod is connected to a dedicated core router set up to act as a Frame Relay switch, making each pod completely independent. Every router has multiple serial interfaces that can be configured for HDLC, PPP, or Frame Relay, along with a Fast Ethernet interface to support different combinations of forwarding paths. The switch is interconnected to the core through multiple interfaces and to the pod routers so you can practice configuring and testing the switch as needed for the exam.
3) Post-Class Lab Practice: Your CCNA Boot Camp package includes 10 e-Lab credits (good for 30 days) for further practice and both the ICND1 and ICND2 Self-Paced e-Learning CDs, so you can continue your studying any time, anywhere.
