NC-Expert Self Study Programs

We recognize not everyone can afford the investment in time away from work or in the money to get standard 5-day certification training.

We have created several webinar series that cover the core topics from certification blueprints.

These webinars are NOT copies of courses and are NOT streamlined just to teach you an exam.

We are experts with hundreds of years of combined experience from working in the industry for major companies of all sizes.

We know these technologies inside and out.

And now we are offering you the chance to sit, listen and learn from our experts.

You will still need to read and research to pass exams, which we can guide you through BUT this will be much easier once you understand
HOW the techologies work and WHY they were created.

The Series are split into Core and Advanced Topics, giving you coverage from Entry to Expert Level

Vendor Specific Advanced Configuration Sessions Available for Multiple Series.

NC-Expert Route & Switch Self Study Program


These webinars are NOT structured to be copies of the vendor programs, they are instead our Experts discussing the topics.

The webinars cover a topic and progress you from understanding what the technology is, how and why it was intended to be used, common deployments and then we take you to the expert level covering the lesser known configurations that are often expected of CCIE engineers.

The webinars are offered "after work hours" and on Saturdays to enable you to get your training on your own time

We currently offer revolving schedules for the US and European timezones, ASIA coming soon. If you can't attend one then catch it the next time around!

The Self Study Series was not designed to be a short cut to certification however, most of the certifications in the market all test the same 80% of topics. Taking and mastering the subjects in these webinars will certainly prepare you for the knowledge the certifications are meant to validate however, you will still need fill in the gaps to cover the vendor specific "exam gotchas" they include specific to their certification.
