Overview

CCNA Data Centre - Firebrand Training Official Cisco Learning Partner

This certification retired on 24th February 2020. Our closest replacement is CCNA.

On this accelerated 6-day CCNA Service Provider course, you’ll learn the skills you need to configure, implement, and troubleshoot baseline Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation networks – 40% faster than traditional training.

Using our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, your expert instructor will teach you to deploy, maintain and improve carrier-grade network infrastructures.

You’ll also learn about the major components of a service provider network construction and the Cisco service provider IP NGN architecture and how service provider networks function.

Once you've completed your training, you'll be able to deliver a scalable, optimised network, capable of rapid expansion and able to support on-going introduction of new services and other customer needs.

You’ll have 24/7 lab access, which means you can test your practical skills in deploying basic Cisco IOS / IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR software, whenever you like.

On this course, you’ll prepare for and sit the following exams, covered by your Certification Guarantee:

  • 640-875 SPNGN1: Building Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Networks, Part 1 (SPNG1)
  • 640-878 SPNGN2: Building Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Networks, Part 2 (SPNGN2)

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online Service Provider courses
  2. You'll be Service Provider certified in just 6 days. With us, you’ll be Service Provider trained in record time
  3. Our Service Provider course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass Service Provider first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn Service Provider faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying Service Provider with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 76796 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
