The UK’s only Technical CCNA training course
Using real Cisco kit and led by Expert Instructors with comprehensive hands-on lab work
One of the most common questions we are asked by prospective students is will they be able to get a job after having done the CCNA Course or will it improve their career prospects.
The answers to both questions are undoubtedly yes! Commsupport CCNA Course not only follows the official CCNA syllabus, but we also focus on the practical elements of the theory.
From start to finish from no CCNA knowledge to being able to start looking for a CCNA level network engineer level position is generally 8 to 10 weeks. This is the time it takes to complete all of the labs we provide you with. Don’t worry if you don’t have Cisco equipment at home, we can provide you with a solution to that.
Although other providers may claim they can do it sooner we say it is important to understand all the technologies well. We have created lots of CCNA focused lab workbooks which once completed will arm you with the skills to call yourself a network engineer with confidence.
We focus heavily on the hands-on skills required in the real world. Don’t be a paper CCNA.
If you doubt us, then why don’t you come and pay us a visit in our classroom and see how we deliver the CCNA course.
We have two aims in our CCNA course, the first is to equip you with the technical skills to design, build, configure and fault find Cisco networks. We do this through our unique teaching methods and comprehensive lab workbooks.
The other aim is to help you pass the CCNA exam the first time around. By teaching you how all the protocols work and how they work together to create networks will set you up with a solid foundation so that all the theory makes complete sense.
If you don’t lab then the theory is worthless. Practice enforces the theory. This is something which Commsupport pioneered in the I.T technical training industry from the start in 2008, and we are still enforcing the rule of if you are not labbing then you are not learning.
If you are still not sure why don’t you come and pay us a visit. You can either come and sit in the classroom for a couple of hours and take part. If you can’t make it into the classroom in North London then you can attend our classes via our live remote sessions. Call us today for details.
The CCNA certification has for a very long time been the corner stone of every network engineers’ career. It was said that if you did not have a CCNA you could not be considered to have the correct foundations.
This has now changed slightly since there are other certifications provided by other vendors such as H.P, Juniper, Huawei. These are all good certifications, but they take their inspiration from the best of the best which is of course the Cisco CCNA course.
Our CCNA course will take you from novice to a very decent level, in fact our students who have done our CCNA course claim that they were able to pick up the more advanced CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional) material and understand it.
We take you from the basics of the Layer 2 switching, VLAN’s, Trunking all the way through to the more complex OSPF, NAT, Access Control Lists.
You will leave your CCNA course feeling confident that in only a few weeks you will move into a new career, pay rise or both.
Our CCNA course is conducted over 6 consecutive days from Sunday to Friday. Our Weekend CCNA courses are conducted over 5 consecutive weekends.
We go into all of the protocols in detail, we use everyday examples to explain the more complex theories. Our approach to teaching has been described as unorthodox but the results speak for themselves. With many 1,000’s of happy students since we started in 2008.
Come and visit our CCNA course in action and judge for yourself. We will turn you into a real cisco network engineer.
When Commsupport first started in 2008 we used the official Cisco lab material. It soon become very apparent that despite the best intentions of Cisco’s education dept had when they wrote their official labs that they left a lot to be desired.
So, we decided to take what Cisco had written and decided to improve on it. Since 2008 we have developed a series of CCNA lab manuals which completely out class and out lab anything provided by any other Cisco technical training provider in the U.K.
Our ccna lab manuals focus on the following:
Walk Through Labs: Hundreds of lab exercises for you complete with detailed instructions of what to do, how to do it and the result.
Build Labs: This lab manual is crammed full of challenge labs which put your skills to the test. We challenge you to build networks against the clock.
Fault Finding Labs: Another great Lab manual packed with broken networks that you have to fix also against the clock.
No one else in the CCNA course provider industry has such fantastic lab materials in the UK. Remember the reason you want to take the CCNA course is to become a competent network engineer and not just a paper CCNA which we see too many of in the I.T industry.
If you would like a sample of our CCNA Course labs just drop us a line or call us and we can send it out to you.
We are unique in the I.T technical CCNA course training industry in that we never use power point. We believe power point is probably on the of the worse ways to torture a human being. Power Point is an offence to humanity and will never be used in our CCNA courses.
We believe in live demonstrations and lab work. We use good old-fashioned chalk and talk for all our CCNA course lectures which are done on a digital board which we record for you to take home at the end of the week. We also encourage interaction between the students and instructors to reinforce the theory and practical.
Our instructors believe in the free exchange of ideas and questions, lots of questions in both directions.
Even though our prices are Ryanair budget level we do not believe in packing you in like sardines, so close where you can smell what your fellow students had for dinner last night.
Our class limit is never more than 10 students in one CCNA course. We want everyone to benefit from their time with us and this can only be done with small class sizes.
Our focus is first your development and secondly the development of our bank balance not the other way around.
How would you have liked for every lecture you attended at school, collage, or university to have been recorded so that you could review at your leisure?
It would have been great and with the technology we have at our disposal today it does seem crazy that academic institutions do not do this, it’s just common sense.
We pioneered the use of session recording. We are the only CCNA course provider that routinely records every single lecture.
We do this because we are sensible and understand that it is not always possible to remember or take in everything that is said during the course. So, we figured why not just record the entire session then hand it over to you at the end of the Week.
We have encouraged other training companies to do the same. Their refusal speaks volumes.
Commsupport, always the first to innovate and pioneer new ways to deliver CCNA courses.
Another first we pioneered in the technical training industry was to offer our students free retakes of the CCNA course if they felt that they needed to brush up before taking the exam, if they wanted to hone their skills after the exam prior to a jo interview, or if they had nothing better to do other than drop in sit the class again to eat biscuits and make coffee for the instructors.
Our only conditions for the retakes are as follows:
Complete the initial course without missing any days
Take the free retake one year of having done the original course
Book the free retake one week (7 days) prior to course commencing.
We allow our students to retake the CCNA either in the classroom or remotely via live webinar
Once a Commsupport Student, always a Commsupport student. We don’t forget about you after the class has ended. We keep in touch using our weekly monday night webinar sessions.
Each week our students, past, present and future will log into our live instructor led webinar revision sessions.
We use these sessions to revise CCNA course topics and to cover new material that is relevant and connected to the CCNA course.
Who else offers this service? Only Commsupport.

When Commsupport first started we wanted to be different. We wanted to focus on our students first and foremost, their experience in the classroom was and is important to us. So, one of the first things we did was to have a policy of having one physical lab per student on the CCNA course.
We have never expected our students to share any lab equipment. Everyone works at their own pace and we understand that it can be counter productive to have students sharing equipment.
On your CCNA course you are responsible for all the mistakes you make on your kit and then you fix them 😊
We always encourage anyone wishing to undertake our fantastic CCNA courses that they come and visit us or at least talk to one of our instructors. If you can’t make it into the classroom, we have the facility for you to log into the live stream we run during the CCNA course.
