5-Day Course Description Cisco CCENT 100-101

Todd Lammle Newest Authorized Cisco CCENT Bootcamp (exam 100-101) is now available, delivered by CCSI instructor Todd Lammle.

In March, 2013, Cisco announced a revision to the existing CCNA and the introduction of a brand-new CCNA Routing and Switching (R/S) certification, as well as the CCENT being a pre-requisite for achieving other Cisco certification, such as Voice and Wireless. GlobalNet Training is now delivering a brand new 5-Day CCENT course complete with Todd Lammle curriculum, a brand new, state-of-the-art equipment topology, exam voucher, and onsite testing.

Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT Test 100-101)

The new Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT) certification is not as easy as it sounds, nor is it close to the older pre-2013 tests – this new exam is 100% harder. The new CCENT at GlobalNet Training is a whole new course and exam, and Todd Lammle has everything you need to be successful and learn the foundation of the objectives. This course is not an exam cram, but a full course based on Todd Lammle’s past successes in classes that he’s held for more than a decade. Lecture, hands-on labs, troubleshooting labs, written labs, and reading are all used to build a strong foundation that you need to be successful in the class, the exam and in your career. Our repetitive hands-on labs feature individual student pods with Cisco high-end ISR routers and Catalyst switches.

GlobalNet’s 5-day, 12-hours long, CCENT boot camp will provide you with everything you need to be successful in a Cisco routing and switching environment and to pass the new Cisco Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 (ICND1) test 100-101) certification exam.

    The New Cisco Certification Path

    Visit the blog, where Todd further discusses the new Cisco associate level certifications and the future of networking professionals in the IT world.


    Understanding how to configure routers and switches is important, and GlobalNet’s Cisco students gain that experience by training on 4 Routers and 2 Switches, including the Cisco Catalyst Switch series and the brand new Cisco ISR Router series, per student pod.

    No sharing equipment!

    Plus, GlobalNet Training offers more lab time than any of our competitors with over 35 labs!

    We encourage students to bring their own laptops to take full advantage of our labs after class each day.


    CCENT Topology


    Mandatory Network+ current certification is required in order to obtain the GlobalNet Training class guarantee. Equivalent job experience can be used in place of the Network+ certification.

    It is important to understand that even though the name has “Entry” in the title, this is not an entry level course or certification. If you have little or no experience you need to work on your Network+ certification before attending the CCENT class.
