Save 25% on Cisco ENCOR & ENARSI by bundling!

Cisco ENCOR and ENARSI classes are covered in this 10-day course designed to help you achieve CCNP Enterprise certification. The CCNP Enterprise Bootcamp covers ENCOR during the first week and ENARSI during the second week. We refer to it as a bootcamp because the class covers all the material you will need for the certification.

The Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) course gives you the knowledge and skills needed to configure, troubleshoot, and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks. You'll also learn to implement security principles within an enterprise network and how to overlay network design by using solutions such as SD-Access and SD-WAN.

The Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services (ENARSI) course gives you the knowledge you need to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot an enterprise network. This course covers advanced routing and infrastructure technologies, expanding on the topics covered in the ENCOR course.

This bootcamp includes: ENCOR & ENARSI Instructor-Led Training, ENCOR & ENARSI Exam Vouchers, and a Live 'Ask the Expert' Session - Reinforce Your Knowledge Before the Exam.

"While going through the course content and slides, the instructor took time to draw on the slide and help us understand what each slide was referring to. He also explained real-world scenarios of where we would use the material within the field. Excellent job!"- ENCOR Student

Free Webinar October 24, 2023: NIST Cybersecurity Framework 2.0 Initial Public Draft Overview

Since 2013 the NIST Cybersecurity Framework has been used as an effective method for improving cybersecurity programs by public and private entities in the United States and around the world. Although the current version from 2017 is still valuable, threats and technologies have changed considerably. In response, NIST recently released the Initial Public Draft (IPD) of the newest update to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, version 2.0! Register for this one-hour webinar, and we will take you on a tour of the NIST CSF version 2.0 draft, get you up to speed on the most significant differences from the 1.1 version, and show you several critical new features. The NIST CSF is changing, and we don't want you to be left behind!

"The in-depth look into not only what the standards were, but how to apply them, was extremely helpful. I very much appreciate the practical examples that were given."- NIST CSF Training Bootcamp Student

"I'm relatively new to the IT field and have a very elementary understanding of some cybersecurity concepts. Part of the reason for taking this course, and working toward the certificate, is to build a better knowledge base. Hopefully I will continue to move into the more technical aspects of cybersecurity with this knowledge under my belt."-CompTIA Security+ Student
