"The training environment is very good. Good classroom and hotel accommodation, which is less than a minute walk from the classroom. Food excellent too. Training is very intense but if you put in the effort and get a couple of exam passes it is worth the effort. I passed 2 out of the 3 CCNP exams, not perfect, but it would have taken me far longer to get these if I had self-studied and trained elsewhere. Overall I'm very happy with the Firebrand experience and would recommend it to those willing to put in the effort and dedicate themselves to study during their stay."

Thanks for the excellent course and instruction."
Andrew Winters, NATO Afghanistan. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (4/8/2013 to 11/8/2013)

"Back again for some more training. Must say it really show much you can learn in 8 days. I love Firebrand ! "
Andre Mellet, 5G. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (4/8/2013 to 11/8/2013)

"Im a serving member of HM Forces going through resettlement. I chose Firebrand because it is an ELCAS authorised learning provider, and as such I was able to subsidise the cost of the course with my Enhanced Learning Credits. Coupled with the savings made because the food and accommodation charges were paid for by the MOD I end up receiving a HUGE discount on the personal cost. For those going through resettlement I would thoroughly recommend Firebrand, not only are the facilities at a high standard, the instruction and course material surpassed my expectations. And to top it off, if you dont quite make the grade, youll be able to return for free, because the food and accommodation charges will be covered through resettlement. All you need to pay for is your re-sit. You cant argue with that."
P.M, HM Forces. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (2/6/2013 to 9/6/2013)

"Forget about work for a few days, get your head into the material, work hard, and the rewards will come! 4th course with Firebrand, and, as usual, overjoyed with the results."
Mark Elen, Independent Communication Solutions Ltd. - Cisco CCNP (Routing & Switching) (8 days) (2/6/2013 to 9/6/2013)

CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE Routing and Switching certifications have received Gold certification from the IPv6 Forum's Education Certification Program. This means that students who gain these certifications can display the IPv6 logo, demonstrating that they have attained IPv6 knowledge and skills. The IPv6 Forum is a worldwide consortium of leading Internet vendors, Industry Subject Matter Experts, Research & Education Networks, with the mission to advocate the adoption of IPv6 technology.

Technical certification is a sound investment in your career. Although certification does not guarantee success, research has shown that it can have a significant impact on:

  • Morale and confidence
  • Efficiency and productivity on the job
  • Monetary rewards
  • Career advancement

Build Your Skills And Your Career: Certify Yourself

Cisco CCNP certification enhances your career path by:

  • Validating achievements, knowledge and hands-on skill base
  • Increasing professional credibility
  • Diversifying and heightening skills, ensuring the ability to tackle the newest, cutting-edge technologies.

A CCNP can do the following:

  • Implement appropriate technologies to build a scalable routed network
  • Build campus networks using multilayer switching technologies
  • Improve traffic flow, reliability, redundancy, and performance for campus LANs, routed and switched WANs, and remote access networks
  • Create and deploy a global intranet
  •  Troubleshoot an environment that uses Cisco routers and switches for multiprotocol client hosts and services

Positions for a CCNP include:

  • Network administrator
  • Level 2 support engineer
  • Level 2 systems engineer
  • Network technician
  • Deployment engineer

The Cisco CCNP certification indicates advanced, or "journeyman", knowledge of networks.  With a CCNP, a network professional can install, configure, and operate LAN, WAN, and dial access services for organizations with networks from 100 to more than 500 nodes.

With Firebrand Training, you will:

  • Learn all of the fundamentals
  • Hone your implementation and troubleshooting skills
  • Improve your creative thinking skills
  • Obtain your certification

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
