  • Redundant topologies
  • Troubleshooting common network issues
  • Configuring EIGRP
  • Multi-area OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6
  • Wide Area Network technologies
  • Device management
  • Cisco licensing

Why is Cisco training at Firebrand different?

Firebrand’s accelerated CCNA training course offers you access to more equipment.

Typically, CCNA training providers and the equipment made available can vary greatly. Often, you'll only be given access to remote labs and never see the actual equipment, only doing exercises based on a connection to a rack of equipment “somewhere”…

At Firebrand we do things differently. We believe that in your first exposure to Cisco you should see, feel, and touch the kit. You need to get hands on practitcal experience to know about interfaces and ports, but not by seeing a PowerPoint slide or a diagram, rather by actually connecting cables to the router or switch.

You’ll work in pairs and share a “pod” of equipment located in a rack. You have your own 2811 router and 2960 switch, access to additional equipment such as a Frame-Relay switch, along with additional routers and switches should you wish to tinker.

The equipment we supply, alongside 24 hour lab access, gives you the tools to prepare you both for the CCNA exams, and more importantly, the real world.

Gold certification from the IPv6 Forum's Education Certification Program

CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE Routing and Switching certifications have received Gold certification from the IPv6 Forum's Education Certification Program. This means that students who gain these certifications can display the IPv6 logo, demonstrating that they have attained IPv6 knowledge and skills.
