Certification Camps Cisco Official five-day CCNA Bootcamp combines all of the content from ICND1 and ICND2 in to one course. Students will learn how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, connecting to a WAN, and identifying basic security threats. It also includes more in-depth topics that teach learners how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks, preparing students for the Cisco CCNA certification. Through lectures, discussions, demonstrations, exercises, and laboratory projects, students are given information sufficient to identify and recommend the best Cisco solutions for anywhere from small to enterprise-sized businesses. CCNA also provides the installation, configuration, and troubleshooting information that technical support people require to install, manage, and configure Cisco products.
The CCNA boot camp incorporates Cisco Official Courses:
200-301 - Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions

We are often asked... "How can you achieve certification with just a few days of training?" Certification Bootcamps is an accelerated learning environment. We take the Cisco Training Materials - remove the unnecessary content and focus on the topics specific to certification. Our instructors use hands on demonstrations to bring test objectives to life. Students are completely immersed in the technology.
During our instructor led class hours - students are taught with lectures, demonstrations, labs and videos. At the completion of the instructor led class time - students focus on study questions covering the topics of the day and looking over material to be covered the next day.
Boot camp requires commitment to achieve success. Students work an average of 10 to 12 hours a day between class time and self study exercises. Bootcamps may sound intimidating and students come with various levels of skill sets - however, they all find success if they commit to our program.
Our instructors explain technical concepts in a way students can see and relate to. No two students are alike - and our class is dynamic to cater to the needs of the students.
CERTIFICATION CAMPS FACILITIES
CAMPUS - Certification Camps invested $150,000 into a complete training center construction build out. Larger classrooms, no sound transference between training rooms, new desk / executive leather chairs & great common areas.
CLASSROOM SERVERS - Students work on a dedicated Dell 8500 / 8700 with an Intel i7 (4th generation), minimum of 16GB memory (Most with 32 GB) and most with 512GB SSD drives.
CAMPUS INTERNET - The campus is connected with a 300Mbs Verizon Fios Business Connection which provides complete internet (including VPN) access for students.
COMMON AREA - Unlike any training facility ever - break room with Mame Arcade, high end "kitchen" with snacks, drinks (Starbucks Coffee, 100% juices, sodas, etc) and breathtaking terrace.
NEAR BY AMENITIES - Many shops, restaurants and grocery options are available within walking distance. Additionally - the hotel provided scheduled shuttle services. Restaurants like Bone Fish Grill, Ruby Tuesday's, Five Guys, Chipotle, Quiznos, Chili's and over 20 additional choices in the immediate area. All of these options are offered in a pedestrian walking village.
CERTIFICATION CAMPS DIFFERENCE
Certification Camps provides an in-depth hands on learning environment. Our instructors teach using demonstrations and explain concepts beyond the scope of the courseware. The best instructors are contracted from all across the US. These professionals are real world consultants who actually implement these technologies. Certification Camps knows our clients work in the "real world" and it only makes sense to have an instructor with the experience in the real world.
Facilities - Many of our competitors over-crowd classrooms by placing 2 to 3 students per desk and 20+ students per instructor. Often these companies "extend" the life of very old equipment with slow performance on the software used today. Our average class size is 8 students. Our facilities have the best equipment with the most comfortable, focused environment for learning.
Instructors - Our CEO, Chester Flake holds one of the rarest Microsoft Certifications - the Microsoft Certified Learning Consultant (MCLC) Certification. This certification reflects a commitment to make sure our instructors are also actively engaged in real world consulting projects. Students expect a professional who can answer questions and demonstrate the technology.
Face to Face Training - We believe the best way to interact and learn is face to face training. Many of our competitors which offer local training are simply providing students with headphones/mic to attend class with an instructor at a remote location.
Test Pass - We offer a free retake voucher (if needed) for each of the exams required for certification. Any training center offering a "100% pass guarantee" would have to use unethical practices or unlimited test vouchers (which is not likely or practical).
Distractions - Students often look for a "local" training center so they can be close to home and work. Boot camp requires a tremendous time commitment during the program. Long class hours combined with self study each evening. The goal of boot camp is to achieve certification in a fraction of the time. We strongly recommend students attend camp away from home and work in a focused, distraction free environment.
Boot Camp - Boot camp is an accelerated training focused on teaching technology and testing students on the official exams. Most training providers "added" boot camps to the existing standard training classes they offer. These training centers think a boot camp is just a regular class where you send the student home with a voucher on the last day. Certification Camps administers exams throughout the camp. Equally important - not every trainer can teach a boot camp and not all courseware is designed for boot camp format. Our trainers know the boot camp format and our courseware is designed for accelerated learning.
Florida - Certification Camps has one of the most scenic locations boasting some of the best weather in US. We believe students should have a comfortable and inviting atmosphere while attending these otherwise intense programs. We place our location, facilities and amenities up against that any competitor.
