5 day – Cisco CCNA Security course

<

 

Designed to build knowledge and show competency with network security, the CCNA Security qualification from Cisco focuses on the latest hardware and software from the market leader in networking. With a huge demand for job-ready network security experts, the CCNA Security certification is a great way to qualify IT professionals for a range of roles in an established area of the industry.

 

Holding a CCNA Security certification highlights competency in installing, troubleshooting, and monitoring network devices with an emphasis on safety and security. With a clear focus on core security technologies, this certification shows that a network professional is able to recognize and stop threats before they develop, as well as identifying and fixing network vulnerabilities before they are exposed.

 

At Commsupport, we include real-world, hands-on experience with ASA technology with our CCNA Security course, because we appreciate what hiring companies expect from their network engineers. Getting hands-on experience with ASA while studying the CCNA Security course will ensure you are ready to hit the ground running as a network security engineer after you receive your qualification.

 

Comprehensive CCNA Security Lab manuals

 

We are the only technical training company focusing not only on passing the Cisco CCNA Security exam but also focusing on ensuring that all our students are put through their paces with our unique comprehensive Lab manuals and classroom technical practical exercises. Our CCNA Security training course lab manuals are a product of nearly 10 years of continuous development. Our CCNA Security training course lab’s manuals are responsible for creating great network engineers. Contact us for a sample of one of our labs.

 

More than the Official Cisco CCNA Security training course Syllabus

 

From the very start we have always been of the mind that the official Cisco CCNA Security training course syllabus left a lot of room for improvement, when Cisco first released the CCNA Security course the content was a little thin on the ground so we added our own very comprehensive sections on the Cisco ASA firewall and very detailed study regarding a wide range of VPN’s

 

With our CCNA Security training course, you will benefit from a deeper understanding of the Cisco ASA Firewall along with Site-To-Site VPN’s, Anyconnect VPN’s, VTI tunnels, DMVPN tunnels. We really throw the book at our students when it comes to VPN’s and Firewalls.

 

No Death by PowerPoint on the CCNA Security training course

 

We are human ourselves and the last thing we want is to bore our students with an endless stream of powerpoint slide after another. All of our lectures and training sessions are focused on involving the students all the way with live demonstrations before our students practice what they have learned then backed up with challenge labs against the clock

 

 

Your Complete CCNA Security training course Session recorded

 

Your Instructor-led CCNA Security training course Is RECORDED from start to finish, That’s right from the first to last, every word and every example and every piece of configuration is recorded in real time just for you, at the end of your course you will have access to the recordings of the class you just attended, We were the first and are the only training company in the world which does this.

 

 

FREE RETAKES – Attend the CCNA Security training course again from anywhere

 

If you feel you need more time and instruction, you can come back onto the course for free from anywhere in the world provided you have internet access via our unique Virtual On-Line CCNA Security training course or come back to the classroom. When you book your course you can start pretty much straight away if that course is running that week.
