Description

If you’ve ever considered working as a Cisco Networking Engineer or specialist, but felt you lacked the knowledge or skills to launch your career, this might be what you’re looking for.
 
This course bundle is aimed at absolute beginners to IT who want to start a career in Cisco networking or just develop their skills in this area. The course assumes you have no technical knowledge of IT whatsoever. To understand Cisco networking and practice it at a technical level, you must first possess an understanding of basic IT literacy as well as certain technologies, which you will be taught through this course. Through this course, you will gain a series of globally recognised networking certifications from CompTIA and Cisco. You will also possess a set of networking skills you can apply to a vast range of IT job roles.
 

Learn about the benefits of getting Cisco certified.

 
From the beginning, we teach you about basic IT literacy, basic software features and functions, basic networking, operating systems, and basic security threats. From there, the course steps up a notch exploring these areas in more depth. As you progress through the various stages, your knowledge of networking will gradually begin to develop.
 

An example of the CompTIA Network+ certification you can gain through this course.

 

 
The course bundle is comprised of five separate courses in total. Once of which is skills based only with no exam, and four certification courses with a final exam after each course. The final course being the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA). The first course (CompTIA IT Fundamentals) provides a soft introduction to basic IT terminology, concepts and technology.
 
As part of this bundle, you will also get access to a MeasureUP practice test for each certification course. Scroll down to read more about the MeasureUP practice tests and how they will help you pass your exams the first time.
 

Learn why NOW is a great time to get Cisco certified.

 
If you’re looking to get ahead of the crowd and don’t have any technical experience, then you might want to consider adding live labs to your course.

Each lesson is pre-recorded allowing you to pause, fast-forward, skip sections, or go back to another lesson if you need to. The lessons are multi-media based, which means video and audio are used to teach the lessons. Your tutor will PowerPoint slides, illustrations, diagrams and give demonstrations to teach each class.  Most lessons are also interactive, prompting the learner to participate.  This might involve answering on-screen questions, participating in tasks.

 

Learn what the CompTIA Network+ can do for your career.

 
How long will it take me to complete each course?
 

As mentioned above, our courses are self-paced.  Some people finish their course faster than others.  Each certification course is between 12-30 hours. If you choose to only do one of the certification courses from this bundle, then it will take you less time than if you do two or three or all of them.  No matter what though, you will always have 12 months to complete your course.

 
How do I book my exams?
 
When you’re ready to sit your exams, email [email protected] with your request along with the title of the exam you wish to take. We will then send you an email with instructions on how to complete your exam booking. The exams for this course must be sat at your local test center, which we will locate for you.
 
What do I need?
 

All you need is an internet connection and a device, such as a smart phone, tablet, laptop or PC, and an internet connection. To get the most out of the course, we recommend you access it using either a laptop or desktop computer through Google Chrome.

Course Features
 
With Hudson’s e-learning system, certification has never been simpler! You can be starting your IT career or taking your current IT skills to the next level in just a few short weeks. Our learning system gives you all of the benefits of a live class at just a fraction of the cost. Courses include:
 
hudson-expert-instructor-led-training

Expert Instructor-Led Training

We only use the industry’s finest instructors in the IT industry. They have a minimum of 15 years real-world experience and are subject matter experts in their fields. Unlike a live class, you can fast-forward, repeat or rewind all your lectures. This creates a personal learning experience and gives you all the benefit of hands-on training with the flexibility of doing it around your schedule 24/7.

 
hudson-visual-demonstrations-multimedia-presentations

Visual Demonstrations & Multimedia Presentations

Our courseware includes instructor-led demonstrations and visual presentations that allow students to develop their skills based on real world scenarios explained by the instructor. We always focus on real world scenarios and skill-set development.

 
hudson-quizzes-exam-simulators

Quizzes & Exam Simulators

Our custom practice exams prepare you for your exams differently and more effectively than the traditional exam preps on the market. You will have practice quizzes after each module to ensure you are confident on the topic you have completed before proceeding.
 
This will allow you to gauge your effectiveness before moving to the next module in your course. Hudson courses also include practice exams designed to replicate and mirror the environment in the testing center. These exams are on average 100 questions to ensure you are 100% prepared before taking your certification exam.

 
hudson-social-learning-networking

Social Learning & Networking

Hudson has designed a world class Learning Management System (LMS) This system allows you to interact and collaborate with other students and staff, form study groups, engage in discussions in our [email protected] Forums, rate and “like” different courses and stay up to date with all the latest industry knowledge through our forums, student contributions and announcement features. This LMS is unmatched in the industry and makes learning fun and enjoyable.

 
hudson-flash-cards-educational-games

Flash Cards & Educational Games

Hudson knows that education is not a one size fits all approach. Students learn in different ways through different tools. That is why we provide Flash Cards and Education Games throughout our courses. This will allow you to train in ways that keep you engaged and focused. Each course will have dozens of Flash Cards so you can sharpen your skill-sets throughout your training as well as educational games designed to make sure your retention level of the materials is extremely high.

 
hudson-navigation-controls

Navigation & Controls

Hudson’s self-paced training programs are designed in a modular fashion to allow you the flexibility to work with expert level instruction anytime 24/7. All courses are arranged in defined sections with navigation controls allowing you to control the pace of your training. This allows students to learn at their own pace around their schedule.
 


 


 
Add experience to your CV with Live Labs

 
If you’re looking to get ahead of the crowd and don’t have any technical experience, then you might want to consider adding live labs to your course. Because many IT jobs take place at the virtual level (i.e. behind a keyboard and mouse), the experience you’ll gain through a live lab is very similar to experience you’ll gain in the workplace. Consequently many employers regard live lab experience as a valued asset on a CV.
 
Live labs are also a great tool for experienced technicians as they allow individuals to put their newly acquired course skills to practice. To find out more about our range of live labs, including costs, and how they can enhance your skills, click here.
