Overview

Firebrand Training Official Cisco Learning Partner

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

Get both your CCNA Security and CCNP Security certifications in 17 days. On this course you'll learn how to reduce the risk to your IT infrastructures and applications using Cisco Switches, Cisco ASA, and the router security appliance feature.

CCNA Security

Develop your own security policies and protect your IT infrastructure with the CCNA Security certification. As prerequisite for the CCNP Security cert, this course will teach you how to:

  • Develop security infrastructures
  • Recognise threats and vulnerabilities to networks
  • Mitigate and respond to security threats

CCNP Security

During the CCNP Security part of the course you'll learn how to plan and implement end-to-end network security measures using Cisco Switches, Cisco ASA, and the router security appliance feature.

You'll also learn about:

  • How to configure and implement security on Cisco network perimeter edge devices such as a Cisco switch, Cisco router, and Cisco ASA firewall.
  • Various Virtual Private Network (VPN) systems that Cisco has available on the Cisco ASA firewall and Cisco IOS software platforms.
  • The different components and architecture of secure access, by utilising 802.1X and Cisco TrustSec.
  • Advanced firewall architecture and configuration with the Cisco next-generation firewall, using access and identity policies.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online Cisco Security courses
  2. You'll be Cisco Security certified in just 17 days. With us, you’ll be Cisco Security trained in record time
  3. Our Cisco Security course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass Cisco Security 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 Cisco Security 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 Cisco Security 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 75,861 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business

"Exceptionally Professional Delivery!!"
Tony Faulkner. (2/2/2009 (Monday) to 15/2/2009 (Sunday))

"The labs, in particular, make this course stand out from other training courses that I have taken. All other courses offer labs, but quite often the student is left to flounder around through the course work to figure out what the required commands are. The student eventually gets the job done, but is left with nothing that can be referred to a week, or a month later. The instructors labs, in contrast were incredibly well-detailed and presented in a spiral binder. The required steps were all spelled out, making it easy to make notes in the lab books and to refer to those notes and commands in the future, when I am attempting to incorporate this course at work. Test-preparation labs were also provided - when all the steps were not given to the student. The course could easily be considered to be worth the money - just for the labs."
Keith Terrell, Intergence Systems. (2/2/2009 (Monday) to 15/2/2009 (Sunday))

"I have just finished my CCSP course, and i would say instructor has gone through every single point and cleared all concepts. Spot on and highly recommended."
Asim Mukhtar. (2/2/2009 (Monday) to 15/2/2009 (Sunday))

"Overall a tough course, lots of material to cover and successful results."
Vernon Grandison, Real Solutions Ltd. (2/2/2009 (Monday) to 15/2/2009 (Sunday))

"I thoroughly enjoyed my Cisco CCSP course and came away with not only a conceptual understanding of the kit, but a good grounding in its application and possible uses."
Steve Wilde, Game Group. (2/2/2009 (Monday) to 15/2/2009 (Sunday))
