This course is over 24+ hours in length (for now) and will cover all the needed subjects to be successful in passing your CCNA 200-120 exam and/or the (200-125).
Let me explain: This course will be updated to reflect everything you need for Cisco’s new certification CCNA (200-125) certification exam! This will happen around September, 2016; and everyone registered will be notified of the update once lectures have been published. However, please remember that the 200-120 test is still good until August 20th for both the CCNA (composite) exam & the ICND1 or CCENT. Cisco has also extended the ICND2 deadline until September 24th, 2016!
Students will acquire the knowledge and practice labs in this course to make it transferable to real world use as a Cisco and or IT Professional. “This course is complemented by my newest course: Cisco CCNA Labs: Gateway to Success! which covers all the labs needed (Newer labs will be added to reflect the new CCNA (200-125) certification exam). This will give the students the practice to prepare for configurations and simulations that will be encountered in the CCNA certification exam. I have also created a free Dropbox on my website that has all the material, labs and other resources to compliment my CCNA courses.”
This is a full comprehensive course that will take you from A-Z in your quest for the CCNA (200-120)…and the soon to be the 200-125 as well. About “the book” referenced in this course: Throughout the course, you will hear me mention “your book”, “a book” or “the book”…and if you’re wondering why I don’t mention a name…it’s because this was done on purpose. I don’t want anyone to purchase a book if they already have one…all CCNA study guides cover the same thing in different manners. So, if you already have a CCNA book, you can use it with this course. However, for those that wonder which book I use and/or mention in this course…I can tell you that it’s the Sybex CCNA Study Guide by Todd Lammle for the 200-120. (the book is not mandatory, but highly recommended). Todd Lammle will have a new book to out for the CCNA (200-125). Also, I have created a free Dropbox for all my students that includes practice labs and other stuff that will be useful to prepare for the CCNA exam.
Hope you enjoy the course! Laz 😉
I do not know Todd Lammle, I do not get referral fees and/or any compensation from him or Sybex, I just happen to think that his books are much easier to understand and follow. It is up to you (the student) to decide which book, if any, you want to use along with this course.

2017 will be the year to achieve your goals!If you are determined, ambitious and hungry for a new beginning...then 2017 should be your year! ...and how better to start or end the year than to get an IT Certification!Whether you are interested in the CCNA R/S, the CCENT, ICND2, the CCNP, CompTIA or Microsoft certifications; or maybe you just want to understand the key topics for these, taking one or ALL of my courses, will get you a lot closer to that goal.But, don't take my word for it...please take a look at the FREE previews (they are available in all my courses) and see for yourself.As for me, 2017 will be the year of putting out new courses for different types of IT certifications among other things.Expect to see more courses on Cisco, Microsoft, CompTIA to name a few.I also hope to complete my second book based on ALL the Routing Protocols either at the end of 2017 or by the first quarter of 2018.However, keep in mind that my first book is currently available on AMAZON and it's called "The Only IP Book You Will Ever Need!" This is for those that may need a little help in understanding IP's since it is the key topic to Networking and IT in general.So, yes, with all these great plans for the near future, my schedule will be quite full but fulfilling!Now...what you wanted to know about me but where afraid to ask:If you are tired of the same old methods of learning and want someone that is pretty much unconventional, but at the same time will provide you with an enjoyable learning experience in layman's terms...then please preview my courses and you will discover that I am your guy.I am a Network Engineer with many years in the field and in the teaching industry. I hold the following certifications: CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, CCNP, Security+, Network+, A+, MCP, MCTS & MOS and since then, I have passed the first of the required two test for the CCIE.My teaching experience stems from teaching at institutions like Palm Beach Community College, New Horizons, Florida Career College (now Anthem College) and The Academy of South Florida not to mention that I also do private consulting.Now, I bring the classroom to you by being in several e-Learning platforms world-wide, teaching over 100K students...courtesy of the internet. Thank goodness for technology! ;-)Having been in all sides of the spectrum; as a student, a teacher/trainer, and in the field, I believe this uniquely qualifies me to understand you, the student. I know first hand what you have been exposed to as opposed to what you really want to accomplish. These two are sometimes extremely conflicting and frustrating. That is why I teach in the manner I do and can relate to your rejection of the Status Quo.I have taught corporate employees at MetroPCS (now T-Mobile) and have also taught IT professionals of companies like The Florida Marlins, Ulysse Nardin, Alberta Water Department (Canada), The Assurant Group, Hospital personnel & Attorney's firms, among others. to guide them in acquiring their IT certifications or general knowledge. However, my expertise also extends to being able to teach applications as well. YES!...I am also an applications instructor and qualified to teach Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access .This of course includes the MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist) certification.As you can see, I am a multifaceted person and consider myself to be an eternal student as well.I teach in an unconventional way that allows for students to understand the subject matter and can therefore, not only prepare them for a Cisco, Microsoft or CompTIA certification exam, but apply my methods in the real world. I strive to give the student a greater opportunity to compete in the current job markets. Do I go above and beyond what is needed for a certification?...YES, I do!...because it's not only about getting a certification, it's also about making sure that you, the student, is prepared for a job interview and/or maintaining your current job by enhancing your skills. This is where I step in and make sure that you are prepared for whatever you need and make you an asset to your employer. Everyone has different requirements and I make sure, or at least I try, to provide information for most scenarios.My classes and/or courses are very simple and that's how I like to teach. I truly believe in "KISS",,,NO, I don't want to kiss you, what this means "keep it simple stupid" - If things are kept simple, easily explained in a way that the student can grasp quickly and retain the information...then I have achieved my goal!For those that do not know me yet, you may not be used to my style of teaching, but you will soon get accustomed to it :)... I'm very laid back, I try to make learning fun and I teach in layman's terms...no physics jargon or mumbo jumbo in my teachings. My courses are very interactive and extremely dynamic!...you will not find my lectures monotone or boring, because falling asleep, for lack of excitement, is just NOT an option. Just take a look for yourself at my video previews, which I always provide on ALL my courses, so you can determine if I'm the right guy to help you get your industry specific certifications. ;)I certainly hope that after a careful review of my credentials & testimonials (you can Google it you know!), I'm the Cisco, Microsoft or CompTIA Instructor you're looking for!Laz
