    ICND1/ICND2 6-day Bootcamp

    No Experience Necessary!

    • Suggested Course Track: ICND1ICND2CCNP R/SCCIE R/S Written

      Todd Lammle’s Newest Authorized Cisco® CCENT/ICND2 Bootcamp (exam 100-105 & 200-105) 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 Security and Wireless.

      In May of 2016, the CCENT and ICND2 was updated again, and Todd Lammle LLC is now delivering a brand new 3.5-Day CCENT and 2.5-day ICND2 course complete with Todd Lammle’s NEW CCENT and ICND2 books, new videos, new curriculum, and new all new practice questions!

      The new Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT) certification is not as easy as it sounds, nor is it close to the older tests – this new exam is 100% harder. The ICND2 has been updated and is much more difficult as well.

    Cisco Collaboration Devices (CICD)

    Implementing Cisco Collaboration Devices (CICD) v1.0 is a 5-day training program that follows the ICOMM blueprint. The primary difference is that video topics have been added into the course and Cisco Unity Express has been removed. CICD v1.0 also introduces a new type of lab called a Discovery lab. Discovery labs are a learning environment and enable students to learn about principles and technology in a more interactive, hands-on way. Discovery labs are located in the Student Guide embedded in the lessons and are intended to be performed by the students when they reach them in the course. Discovery labs replace content from ICOMM with an interactive learning environment and are considered mandatory and should be treated as a part of the lesson.

    CCNA Data Center Boot Camp (DCICN + DCICT) is an accelerated 5-day course where you will be introduced to the three primary technologies that are used in the Cisco data center. Through hands-on labs, you will focus on viewing configurations, but not making configuration changes or creating new topologies. In the second part of the class you will be introduced to the Cisco technologies that are deployed in the Data Center: unified computing, unified fabric, and network services. The introductory level of knowledge that is taught in these training courses is targeted for individuals who can perform only the more basic configuration tasks. The course labs will focus on verifying configurations, with selected exercises involving making configuration changes or designing new topologies.

The 5 days FirePower / FTD class I attended lead by Todd Lammle, and supplemented by his great support staff was one of the best training experiences I have had in my 20 years in IT. The training consisted of lots of relevant, practical, real world hand on labs and lectures,  and as a bonus we even had the opportunity to go through live troubleshooting the tuning of a production environment.
The knowledge gained from this course was immediately applicable to my production environment, and I have already started implementing DNS Sink hole and correlation polices, and now with a firm understanding of the product from the knowledge gained in Todd’s class I have a road map for implementing a lot more policies, rules and features in my environment, needless to say I highly recommend this course.
