Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be CCENT certified in just 4 days. With us, you’ll be CCENT trained in record time
  2. Our CCENT course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass CCENT 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

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. The IPv6 Forum is a worldwide consortium of leading Internet vendors, Industry Subject Matter Experts, Research & Education Networks, with the mission to advocate the adoption of IPv6 technology.

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a Certification Guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
