We sale programs not courses like our competitors.

Every course program includes the following:

  • Official Vendor Course- we are strategic partners with both Cisco and CWNP
  • 6-Month enrollment into Group Mentoring- meet in a study group format to dig into topics, strategies, etc. that will help you master both the technology and the exam
  • 6-Month enrollment in live after-hours webinars- we take the extra time to cover the concepts that need more explanation
  • Unlimited Virtual Re-takes of the course-some restrictions apply
  • Exam Vouchers

Why do we do this because these skills are critical today and most people need more than just a few days to master them. Our goal is to give you enough time to feel compfrtable and master the topic. Exams are easy when you know the material.
