I was pretty worried about taking the CCNA Boot Camp but thanks to the instructor and course work provided by Intense I found it fun and easy to further my career. I would recommend Intense to anyone serious about getting a certification. You can save a lot of time and aggravation by using Intense plus the entire experience is enjoyable. I would highly recommend this course as I already have to 2 of my friends.

;Great experience taking this class. Never thought I would be able to learn all this material in one week.

- Thomas Horvath
US Army

Great instructor, great class, great subject. I look forward to more.

- Brian McMasters

The instructor was excellent, his teaching style and re-enforcing the topics with examples worked well . It  has been the best training I have ever had including location of the hotel to the training room, the food service (very good too) that saved many hours a day and the equipment was perfect for the tasks required of it.  Getting out of class at 10:30pm and being able to walk over to the room and starting the studying at 10:45pm was such a big help. Was it easy? Not at all, it took discipline before the class (on-line sessions) 45+ hours and during the class. I went to bed at 1am or later each night and was up a going by 5:30am every day.  Was I tired each day? Yeah but I signed up for a Boot Camp not a Skillpath Happy Hour. I got to catch up on my sleep Saturday PM AFTER I had the two exams passed!!  Also the staff were exceptional;  responsive and handled everything right away.
