CCNP Enterprise Bootcamp

ENCOR and ENARSI classes are covered in this 10-day course designed to help you achieve CCNP Enterprise certification.

This class includes two Cisco exam vouchers and one Retake voucher (per exam, if-needed), official Cisco courseware, Boson NetSim network simulator and Boson ExSim-Max practice exams for ENCOR and ENARSI

Our instructor is CCIE Bryan Baize, an authorized Cisco instructor. We use official Cisco courseware and labs and teach the classes as Cisco designed them to be taught. 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, we include exam vouchers and you have the option to test during class if attending in Tampa.

Should everyone test during class? Nope. The class is not a brain dump. If you have a decent grasp of the material before attending and are just looking for a push prior to the exam, then you are a good candidate to test during class. Otherwise, you may need to continue to study for a few weeks after class and then take the exams. The course will teach you the material, our ExSim-Max practice exams will help you focus your studies to prepare for the exam and will give you a good indication of how ready you are for the exams.

This class retails for less than purchasing the two classes individually, includes our ExSim-Max practice exams and NetSim for ENCOR and ENARSI, two exam voucher and one re-take voucher (per exam, if needed). Customers have the option to take the two weeks of class back-to-back or in two different months.
