Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT)

StormWind’s Routing & Switching courses deliver real-world tips and tricks that students can’t get from any other standard Cisco training courses. We know that most networks incorporate the best gear from multiple vendors – so learning about Cisco technologies in a vacuum is just not good enough. Not only do our instructors cover the latest Cisco software and its interactions with other common devices, they make sure our students understand the “how and why”, how to avoid common pitfalls, and know the important workarounds.

This certification training program delivers the skills needed to help your team install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks.
