Last time I attempted to certify on CCNA was with a competitor, and I was imperessed with the instructors style and delivery. However, once I had experienced your method of teaching, I then had a different view. He made understanding the subnetting so much easier. He explained things that didnt make sense, and the labs he provided were outstanding.
We prepare every student for class by giving them study material prior to the start of the CCNA® /CCENT® training course along with expert Cisco instructors and mentors to assist throughout the course. Students’ skills are greatly increased during the CCNA® /CCENT® course through hands-on practice and exercises using remotely accessed pods of genuine Cisco equipment.
You should know that you have TWO options for achieving the CCNA certification (both options result in the CCNA certification):
With over 10 years of preparing students for Cisco Certifications, InfoSec Institute has found that taking the two ICND exams (Option #2) offers a much better chance of certification success for the CCNA. Having two exams allows you to break up your exam preparation into two distinct phases during the boot camp. You will test the first exam half way through the CCNA boot camp, concentrating all efforts on passing the exam during the first 3 days. You can then rest assured you are 50% completed on your way to the CCNA, and concentrate efforts on the second exam to be delivered on-site at the training location on the fifth day of the boot camp.
This two exam approach to the CCNA also allows you more time to build real-world networking skills in addition to passing the CCNA.
In addition, we have gotten at the secrets of the CCNA: Security and CCDA exams, and will prepare you for real world network security and infrastructure design work while assuring that you leave this course certified with 4 Cisco certifications.

After completing this boot camp, you will be certified with the following four Cisco certifications:
CCNA R&S® Certification
CCNA certification is recognized as a key route for network professionals on their way to a rewarding career in the Cisco inter networking field. The demand for highly skilled network professionals increases daily. InfoSec Institute’s Authorized CCNA course is an innovative and challenging 7 day CCNA training course designed specifically for network engineers and administrators requiring full knowledge of Cisco router and switch configuration.
The Cisco CCENT certification validates the skills required for entry-level network support positions, the starting point for many successful careers in networking. Candidates should have the knowledge and skill to install, operate and troubleshoot a small enterprise branch network, including basic network security. CCENT certification is the first step toward achieving CCNA, which covers medium size enterprise branch networks with more complex connections.
Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA®) validates that you have the knowledge required to design a Cisco converged network. With a CCDA certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to design routed and switched network infrastructures and services involving LAN, WAN, and broadband access for businesses and organizations. The CCDA curriculum includes designing basic campus, data center, security, voice, and wireless networks.
CCNA: Security® Certification
With a CCNA Security certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to develop a security infrastructure, recognize threats and vulnerabilities to networks, and mitigate security threats. The CCNA Security curriculum emphasizes core security technologies, the installation, troubleshooting and monitoring of network devices to maintain integrity, confidentiality and availability of data and devices, and competency in the technologies that Cisco uses in its security structure. The National Security Agency (NSA) recognizes that CiscoCCNA Security courseware meets the CNSS 4011 training standard.

The CCNA is one of the most highly regarded entry-level IT certifications on the market today. Earning the CCNA proves to colleagues and employers that you are an educated networking professional that’s able to manage small to medium sized networks in the real world.
The CCNA exam itself has no prerequisites, and there are no specific degree requirements to hold the certification. However, it is recommended that you have at least 2 years of real world networking experience before preparing for the exam. Familiarity with networking basics like routing, switching, and TCP/IP protocol will go a long way.
There are two ways for students to earn the CCNA certification. The first option is to take the 200-125 exam. This is a longer, more difficult examination, where you answer 50-60 questions within a 90 minute timeframe.
The second option is to take two smaller exams, the 100-105 ICND1 and the 200-105 ICND2. Both of these exams are between 45-55 questions that are required to be completed in 90 minutes. The price for the exam will vary depending on the exam you’d prefer to take, with the 200-125 exam costing $325 and the ICND1 & ICND2 exams costing $165 each.
No matter which exam you take, the majority of the questions will be in a multiple choice format. In addition to multiple choice, you will be required to complete both “drag and drop” and simulation questions. In order to pass the exam, you must score 825 or higher out of the 1,000 possible points.
Simulation questions will present you with a scenario that you will then need to investigate and solve. Simulation questions are more intensive, and thus can carry greater weight than the multiple choice or drag and drop questions. InfoSec Institute’s boot camp lab environment will prepare you for all of the question types found on the exam.
The CCNA is one of the most highly-regarded certifications in the IT industry, which in recent years has grown at a considerably steady rate. In fact, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predict that between 2016 and 2026, employment opportunities for computer and information technology professionals are expected to increase by 13%. Becoming certified is a surefire way to stand out in this competitive industry.
Upon successful completion of our training course, you will hold the following four Cisco certifications: CCNA R&S, CCENT, CCDA, and CCNA: Security. Our course’s lab environment will give you unmatched hands-on experience with Cisco-certified materials to prepare you for the CCNA exam(s), which we will also provide you with vouchers for. Lastly, our Exam Pass Guarantee can give you the peace of mind you need in order to study effectively!
CCNA certifications are valid for three years after their date of issue, and can be renewed before their expiration date by passing the designated recertification exam(s). Click here for more information on CCNA recertification.
Other rigorous certification processes, like the MCSE, require that students take 7 different exams in order to demonstrate their expertise—whereas the CCNA only requires you to take 1 or 2 exams. While the Network+ certification is also attractive as an entry-level certification, it doesn’t cover the more advanced networking and technology specific concepts that Cisco does in the CCNA.
Students typically find the most difficult topic to comprehend on the CCNA exam is WAN Protocols, specifically anything to do with PPP, Frame Relay, or ISDN. Brushing up on Routing Protocols (RIP, IGRP, OSPF, etc.) and Access Lists (basic and advanced) is also recommended.
There is no limit to the amount of times one can take the exam(s). The only protocol Cisco has is that the candidate must wait 5 calendar days before retaking the exam. While the CCNA has a high first-time fail rate, InfoSec Institute boot camp students have a passing rate of 93%!
Common job titles for CCNA professionals include: Network Engineer, System Administrator, Technical Support Engineer, Computer Systems Analyst, and many more.
Apart from developing good habits of self-study, it is recommended that students gain practical experience related to the fundamentals of routing and switching. Enrolling in a training boot camp like the one offered here is also a proven strategy for success! Click here for more practical tips.
CCNA holders can negotiate higher salaries for themselves and make between $39,195 to $118,830 annually—depending on location, job title, and experience. Click here for more info on CCNA salaries.
