Overview

Firebrand Training Official Cisco Learning Partner

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

Get both your CCENT and CCNA Security certifications in just 8 days in this accelerated dual course. That's 20% faster than traditional training. You'll gain the knowledge and skills to install, operate and troubleshoot a small enterprise branch network, including basic network security.

ICND1 gives you the skills needed for entry-level network support positions and is the starting point for many successful careers in networking. CCNA Security introduces you to the core network security technologies.

ICND1 v2.0 is the latest version and includes many new updates. Several topics have been moved from ICND2 into ICND1, while some topics, such as RIP and wireless, have been removed from the curriculum. Course content has been updated to Cisco IOS Software Release 15. All configuration commands are introduced through examples and supported with lab exercises. All labs are developed with new pod topology and new networking gear.

With a CCNA Security certification, you'll have the skills needed to develop a security infrastructure, recognise threats and vulnerabilities to networks, and mitigate security threats. You'll learn 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.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online CCENT & CCNA Security courses
  2. You'll be CCENT & CCNA Security certified in just 8 days. With us, you’ll be CCENT & CCNA Security trained in record time

"Initially thought i would struggle with the Bootcamp method. Dave Petts was able to keep the attention of the group and provide an all round relaxed but intensive learning process."
Rich Bridle. (15/9/2014 (Monday) to 20/9/2014 (Saturday))

"Great course, very well given"
R.H.. (22/3/2021 (Monday) to 27/3/2021 (Saturday))

"Having very minimal knowledge with Cisco before starting, I now feel confident to take the exam and to get hands-on with Cisco kit. The method of teaching from slides, taking that information and then putting them into simpler, more relatable terms on the whiteboard was a great way to make it all understandable for a first-time user. The instructor did a great job."
Jordan Hornby. (22/3/2021 (Monday) to 27/3/2021 (Saturday))

"A good course, providing solid teaching of subject with a large amount of course material and without making it confusing allowing me to learn the subject matter at hand. No questions were off limits and subjects were covered until they were understood"
Richard Jones, South Derbyshire District Councl. (22/3/2021 (Monday) to 27/3/2021 (Saturday))

"Highly skilled instructor leading an interactive and informative boot camp course."
R.J.. (22/3/2021 (Monday) to 27/3/2021 (Saturday))
