INE is proud to announce that our CCNA Security Class-on-Demand is now completed and available for viewing! Taught by myself, this class includes more than 12 hours of instructor-led videos to prepare you for the latest Implementing Cisco IOS Network Security (IINS) exam. Video samples of this series can be found below.

This series uses INE's tried and true hands-on learning approach. This unique method of delivery allows you to not only learn how advanced networking technologies work in real-world design scenarios, but to also see live Cisco IOS command line and SDM GUI examples of how to configure, verify, and troubleshoot those scenarios.

Whether your are preparing for the CCNA Security, or beginning your studies for the CCSP or CCIE Security certifications, this series will exceed all of your expectations.

Samples of the CCNA Security Bootcamp Class-on-Demand can be found below. Note that the quality of the actual Class-on-Demand recordings is much higher resolution than the YouTube videos, as some quality is lost in the YouTube encoding process.
