Detailed Course Description:
The SWITCH Course is one of the three components of CCNP and is used to help prepare for complete CCNP certification. Students will learn to analyze the campus network design and accommodate voice and video in campus networks. They will learn to implement VLANs and Integrate WLANs in the campus network. They will learn to implement spanning tree, inter-VLAN routing, and security features. Student will also learn implementation of high-avalibility technologies through techniques used for multilayer switches in the campus environment.

The instructor was the best teacher I have ever had at any level. I learned more in the last 7 days than I did studying on my own for the past 6 months. The material was presented in a way that was easy for everyone to understand. He by far had the most knowledge of anyone I have ever met in the subject and I hope to learn more from him in the future.

Instructor was to the point, and stayed on topic. Appreciated that he doesn't get led off tangents by students questions.

- Mark Yu
MBL Technologies

Incredible instructor. The coursework covered 300 topics in 10 domains, and he was able to speak intelligently on all of them. Better, his teaching style was relaxed and informal, which lessened the feelings of impending doom about the exam we were about to undertake. He knew exactly which sections of the material to emphasize, when we needed a break, and in many cases was speaking ahead of the slides (he knew exactly what was coming up before turning the slides). Rare gem.

- Thomas Dunn
Georgia Tech Research Institute

My instructor is a freaking genius, however he really enjoys bringing the info and material to life so in a way you do catch a bit of genius by the end of the course.

- Samuel Angura
World Bank

Instructor was very intelligent and had lots of experience to draw on, outside of the written paterial that made it more interesting. I was very pleased with him.

- Sandra L. Speck

A great instructor, very intelligent and well spoken and excellent course materials.

- Jeff Clemmons
Blood Systems

One of the most intelligent and well-spoken instructors I have ever had the privilege to work with. His in depth knowledge of the 10 domains in CISSP surpassed my expectations as well as the expectations of my classmates. His teaching style kept the otherwise dry information very memorable and exciting. I would HIGHLY recommend this course to my peers.

- Student
National Institutes of Health

Fantastic instructor! Really knew the material, and was adept at communicating in an understandable manner to those without an IT background. I couldn't ask for a more genuine, concerned instructor who had her students successful learning as the main motivator for everything she did. Simply superb!

- Timothy Dalhouse
Spectrum Training

Instructor did a fantastic job of delivering a large set of very dense course material cogently to the class. She obviously had the material down cold and could easily break down elements of the different knowledge domains in clear explanations.

- Byron Caswell

My instructor is a genius. He has the perfect combination of knowledge and humor. I learned so much this week and enjoyed every minute of it!

- Matthew Miller
Waste Connections

Excellent instructor. One of the best I have had in over 27 years in the IT business. Genuinely cared about the students understanding the subject material and their success in passing the exam. She taught how to think and reason to pass the test. That is something not found in any text book.

- Craig Calder

The instructor was very knowledgeable about the pen testing and ethical hacking. He was great in delivering the lectures, lab and was very helpful in having us complete the capture the flag exercises. In addition, he provided valuable insight about security in general and pen testing in particular.

- Tijan Drammeh
University of Maryland University College

Instructor demonstrated advanced knowledge of the subject matter as well as INFOSEC in general. He provided us with all of the tools and reference materials we needed to perform the DIACAP process. The course materials are great!
