We are so excited to be debuting entry-level training in Cisco internetworking soon! This CCENT (Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician) training program will prove to be unique and unmatched in the Cisco training industry.

The training program will include live equipment, hands-on practice labs; Class on Demand video instruction; dynamic student assessments; and online mentoring 24 x 7; just to name a few!

All Class on Demand modules will feature CCIE-level (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) instructors. As such, students will not have to doubt for a moment the qualifications of their instructor.

Here are some highlights and unique advantages provided by the InternetworkExpert entry-level training program:

  • Personalized Class on Demand Training – the classroom training is provided by one of our 5 CCIE Senior instructors; these are the same instructors who provide the mentoring throughout the program; more information regarding these incredible instructors can be found at the InternetworkExpert main Web site
  • Interactive Class On Demand Training – too often with online, self-paced training, students just sit and watch, never given a single opportunity to interact with the training materials; InternetworkExpert Class on Demand is unveiling unparalleled levels of interactivity with CCENT training
  • Real-world training focus – our CCENT training certainly covers every point needed for success in the exam, but the main focus is ensuring our students succeed in the support of actual networks
  • Unmatched practice exams – to ensure candidates are ready for the actual exam, InternetworkExpert provides detailed practice exams for the ICND1 test; exams include hands-on practice, drag and drop, multiple choice, and other questions formats that students can expect to see on test day
  • Hands-on practice – to ensure that students succeed in real-world network environments, and to ensure success in the exam, students work through rigorous hands-on lab exercises using actual Cisco equipment; lab scenarios are real-world based to ensure candidate success in the industry
  • 24×7 mentoring support is available through Instructor Hours, the InternetworkExpert Online Community, and e-mail and Live Chat options

Be sure to watch for sample course materials on our site soon. CCENT should be available prior to Q1 2009!

    This is interesting. I am hoping that this will actually be different because quite frankly cisco material often states something is fact but does not give any explanation behind why it is fact now

    This being the 3rd posting of CCENT related news in a short period, I would like to make a suggestion. Hopefully others can chime in to see what their views are.

    One of the reasons that I like this blog is that it’s CCIE focused, and has good meaty content. There’s not much fluff. It says it all at the top of the page. “Internetwork Expert’s CCIE Blog: helping you become a Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert”. I’d rather not come here and have to sift through CCxA and CCxP level topics and news to get to my CCIE stuff. Maybe there could be different zones of the blog that focus on the different certification levels.

    That’s my 2 cents at least.

  3. Yes – I agree Roger.

    A constant theme throughout our training will be answering questions like – Why do I care? Why am I doing this? and Why does it work that way????

  4. Hi Jeff,

    We are currently in the process of implementing this. There will be separate RSS feeds and homepages for the different blog topics, so for people that want to see just CCIE vs CCNx, or vice versa, they don’t have to sort through the other topics.

    Thanks for your feedback!


  5. Jeff Rensink says:

    That’s good to know. Thanks for the heads up!

  6. Roger says:

    Thats great to hear. I look forward to this because honestly I am getting tired of the how to’s.

    I want the why’s this happens. Why would I choose subinterfaces to solve this particular issue for a given frame relay topology?

    Why does OSPF display this particular behavior in this instance?

    What problem was a particular technology created to solve and what were the tradeoffs etc?

    I mean really why do we have to wait to get to the highest levels of certification before somebody tries to give us these answers. I mean sometimes I have to read CCNP level books to try to fnd out the reasons behind things that were casually mentioned at the associate level. It is absurd

  7. Hi Roger.

    Yes – I agree – it is absurd. We are very, very excited to be providing these training materials after many, many requests to do so.

    We have here the opportunity to build very strong foundations of knowledge for candidates to grow to CCNP and beyond!

    “Internetwork Expert Unveiling Cisco CCENT.”

    “CCENT should be available prior to Q1 2009!”

    That was 11/02/08; it is now 12/30/08 or “prior to Q1 2009″ and start dates, training fee, and registration have not been posted.

    Little more than intent has been “unveiled”.

    Please provide a courtesy update to the release schedule.

  9. Hi fxsaucedo!

    We have decided to start with a full CCNA Bootcamp! The course will be in our High Tech classroom in Reno, NV. The price and date will be announced soon. It will be in Q1 of 2009, and sooner than later :-)

    The self-paced version of CCENT and CCNA will follow that quickly.

    Thanks so much for your interest, and please be sure to contact our Sales department to ensure they will e-mail you updates directly.
