Our bootcamps are a great study resource for CCIE candidates. No matter whether you're just starting out on your CCIE training journey, or have been studying for months, an INE bootcamp can help you gauge where you're at in the study process and what you need to focus on before attempting your CCIE Exams.

What is a Bootcamp?

Bootcamps are intensive, live classes that typically last from 5-7 days. Bootcamps allow you to dive further into your study path in a small classroom environment with an in-person, expert INE instructor leading the way. Each bootcamp class will cover a specific list of topics tailored to the Cisco track and certification level you are studying. Our instructors will customize the training to focus on certain topics and technologies that best meet the individual requests of the students in your bootcamp.

What's a Bootcamp Class Actually Like?

In our Written Routing and Switching Bootcamp you will learn about Switching, RIP & EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, MPLS, Redistribution and Evolving Technologies. Our 7 time CCIE, expert-instructor, Rohit Pardasani, will not only help you understand all of the essential R&S topics for this exam, he will also share study techniques and prepare you for what the actual exam environment will be like.

Bootcamp participants will find that our in person classes are laid back, private and comfortable study environments, where questions are encouraged and each student is afforded the attention they deserve. Our small class sizes (less than 20 students per bootcamp) allow our instructors to customize curriculum and focus on the specific needs and requirements of the individuals in your class.

Typically, our R&S Bootcamps run 10 hours a day, with a 1 hour lunch break, and ample snack and coffee breaks to fuel your studying. Each day will be a combination of lectures, instructor-led demonstrations, Q&A sessions, hands-on exercises, and frequent quizzes. Students will also have full access to lab equipment throughout the bootcamp and in the evenings to continue practicing on their own or as groups.

Starting in 2018, our bootcamps will always take place in one of three locations; Durham, North Carolina, Salt Lake City, Utah, or Amsterdam, Netherlands. For those that can't, or don't want to travel, we also offer online live options.

What Our Students Have to Say About the Routing and Switching Bootcamp Experience:

Don't believe INE has the best in-person training? Take it from our students, our bootcamps are the best on the market!

"I would like to thank INE and Rohit Pardasani in particular for the great experience I had. This course has provided me with a good idea on how the CCIE exam should be approached in terms of study and preparation. I will highly recommend this training to anybody that is on the same journey as I am. Also, many thanks to the Coordinator in providing all the information needed and answering my questions, this made everything as smooth as I hoped."
Berry Batist

"I enjoyed Rohit personally. I would look for him if seeking another workshop. The content/material informed and challenged me. I feel better prepared."

Module 9 is here! Tune into Josue Vargas's newest video - Certified Ethical Hacking: Denial of Service to learn about DoS and DDoS attacks and how to prevent them.

About the Course

DoS and DDoS are disruptive attacks meant to bring a server or network out of operation. You might have seen some of this in the news, especially as related to hacktivism (people who hack for a cause). A DDoS attack can be a big financial hit on an organization. In this module you will learn how this type of attack is accomplished and even how it can be done stealthily. As an ethical hacker you will get the point of view of the attacker, as usual, but you will also learn how to protect your organization from this type of event using the right tools and strategies.

Hi, my name is Gilad Gressel and I’d like to tell you about my new course: Deep Learning with Python.

Deep learning is an old technology that has recently been sweeping through the field of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Deep learning powers many of the cutting edge technologies that appear to be “magic” in the world today. Voice recognition, image detection, facial recognition, AI game playing agents (Dota, Chess, and Go), all of these are examples of deep learning in action.

Why Would You Be Interested in Deep Learning?

You might be interested in studying deep learning simply because you want to know what the “magic” is, what the hype is all about. That’s a fine reason to take this course, but I urge you to dig a bit deeper. If you have ever stared at a bunch of data and known “there is a pattern here, but I can’t find it,” then this is the course for you!

About The Course

In this course you will learn what is going on in a deep learning program, what it can do and what it’s limitations are. If you are wondering if you can apply deep learning to your field of expertise – the chances are that yes you can. If you simply watch the introductory trailer you will know what is required to make this work (hint: data).

This course is an introduction to deep learning. It assumes zero prior knowledge and has no prerequisites aside from the ability to code comfortably in any language. That said, we will be coding in Python, so you will either need to learn it (it’s easy) or already know it. I won’t assume you know much of any math, except what you would have learned in high school.

This is a practical course, although the course runtime is listed at 3 hours and 30 minutes, there is another 3 hours of additional video just going through code with you! To be clear – these are not boring “here is how you code this” videos, there are detailed experiments that will reveal what the different levers and knobs of a deep learning network actually do. All that extra course video is to help you learn how deep learning works.

In this course you will code your own image recognition model (for handwritten digits), predict housing prices and perform sentiment analysis on the IMDB movie database dataset. During all these exercises I will be helping you understand how your decisions will affect the performance of your deep learning models. I am going to help you understand what affects what when you build your deep learning models, and we’ll do this all in practical coding sessions.

A Bit About Me

I’m a mostly self-taught machine learning practitioner. I have published papers in machine learning applied to security topics, both in Europe and the U.S. My passion is to understand a topic deeply enough that I can explain it to my mother.

I sincerely invite you to join me in this course, we’ll explore this fun topic together and rest assured that you will succeed and have a great time.

Tune into Gabe Rivas's most recent course release, Network Foundation Protection: Management Plane, the second in a series of eight CCNA security courses.

Network Foundation Protection is a security framework that provides with strategies to protect three functional areas of a device: Management Plane, Control Plane, and Data plane. In this Course we will focus on the management plane functionality and we will look at ways to protect and secure management access to network devices. We will compare the Pros and Cons of using an in-band vs an out-of-band management network and we will learn how to use network management protocols such as SNMP, NTP, SCP, RADIUS, TACACS+, Telnet, SSH, HTTP, and HTTPS to name a few. We will also learn the difference between the Cisco ACS and ISE servers and configure TACACS+ on ISE and an IOS device to provide with AAA for device administration. As a bonus, we will look at commonly used tools that can help you determine Cisco product vulnerabilities, best recommended software, and how to search bugs.

Prerequisites

If this was a single course covering the entire CCNA Security blueprint, the pre-requisite would have been the CCENT Certification or equivalent knowledge. Since this is just a subset of the CCNA Security blueprint, for this specific portion it is recommended that you start with the INE Security concepts course and have the following pre-requisites: Basic network fundamentals, basic knowledge of infrastructure devices, and basic knowledge of infrastructure services.

Why You Should Watch

This course covers topics for the CCNA Security certification, so if you are pursuing this certification you'll definitely want to watch this video. Regardless of certification achievement, this course will give you a lot of foundational network-infrastructure security knowledge, enough to become a hero at work! With the knowledge obtained from this course, you will be able to maximize device uptime and implement secure management solutions.

Who Should Watch

This course was designed for anyone interested in pursuing the CCNA Security Certification, or simply interested in gaining knowledge about network security in the management plane functionality of infrastructure devices.

About The Instructor

Gabe started his network engineer career in 2010 as a Co-Op at Cisco Systems in Herndon, VA. He landed a full-time position as a network consulting engineer and moved to Raleigh, NC, where he worked at Cisco from 2011-2013. Gabe then moved to a network support role working at ePlus Technology, a Cisco Gold Partner, from 2013-2016. Gabe is currently working at Cisco again as a test engineer, and has been teaching CCNA R&S, CCNA Security, and CCDA classes at Wake Technical Community College since 2015. Certifications that Gabe holds are: CCNA R&S, CCNA Security, CCNA Wireless, CCDA, CCNP R&S, and CCDP. Gabe is currently busy developing CCNA Security courses for INE and studying for his CCNP Security certification.
