Cisco CCDP

- Only 10 Days

Courseware for this course is provided digitally. Students will require a device to access their course material. If they do not have one, we can provide this upon their arrival at the Training Centre

Firebrand Training Official Cisco Learning Partner

This course is designed to give you advanced knowledge of network design using Cisco's SONA (Service Oriented Network Architecture) methodology. During the course, you'll discuss, design, and create advanced addressing and routing, security, data center, and IP multicast multi-layered enterprise architectures. This includes virtual private networking and wireless domains and it focuses on the design components of larger networks. The course will prepare you for the Cisco CCDP (Cisco Certified Design Professional) exams which you'll sit on the course.

Upon completion of this course, you'll be able to:

  • Build scalable internet works
  • Build multilayer-switched networks
  • Design network service architectures

"Training and resources provided are great, and the tutors are always available to help."
Euan Turner. (7/2/2020 to 9/2/2020)

"A work colleague recommended Firebrand training to me. I wasn’t too keen as the price was steep for my budget. I invested and have no regrets. Everything works like a clockwork at Firebrand. I traveled by train to the local station, was collected by Firebrand taxi without any delay. Was taken to the on-campus hotel, a short moment later was my induction, after which the actual training commenced. The lectures start early in the morning and end late evening. Labs are open and available 24/7. Food & accommodation – great. Quality of tutoring – unparalleled. Concise, yet in depth. All I needed to learn and pass. Thank you."
J.L.. (2/12/2019 to 8/12/2019)

"Tough, but worth it. "
Jamie Hird, HDFT. (2/12/2019 to 5/12/2019)

"Excellent course you need to know a lot of theory before hand but it makes you understand whats going on in those Cisco devices, and is excellent preparation for the CCNP exams. The tutor is extremely knowledgeable and happy to explain. Being on site and with 24 hours access to the classroom and away from the distractions of family life also help your revision and practice."
Mark Boardman. (20/10/2019 to 27/10/2019)

"The setup at Firebrand is fantastic. Being in an environment away from home definitely helps to focus your mind and means you can concentrate totally on learning. Accommodation is good, and gives you everything you need. Small but comfortable rooms, together with plenty of good food and strong coffee to get you through the day. The training is fast paced and intense, which means its not necessarily for everyone, but there is no better way to get through all the course material in a short space of time."
Stewart Beel, Waters Corporation. (20/10/2019 to 27/10/2019)
