How is each course taught?
All courses are online and self-paced, meaning you do it in your own home, in your own time, at your own pace. 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. Most lessons are also interactive, prompting the learner to participate. This might involve answering on-screen questions, participating in tasks, and using simulators as if you were using the real software program.
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?
Once you have completed each course and passed the mock tests, you have the option to sit an official Cisco exam for each course and get certified. The exam fee for each course is already paid for as part of this pro pack. To book your exam date, email [email protected] with your preferred date and time. We will usually reply to you within 24 hours (during business hours: Mon-Fri 9:30am-6pm GMT) to advise you whether your time slot has been approved. If approved, you will receive a second email with further instructions. We ask that you give us at least seven days notice to book your exam slot. We recommend you take one exam after completing each course, rather than attempting to take all the exams after completion of the entire course. On the day of your exam, you will be required to attend a test centre .
What do I need?
All you need is an internet connection and a PC. While most of the lessons work on MACs, we recommend you use a PC for the best performance. Certain parts of the course may not display properly on older MACs. Once you’ve logged into your course, you may be prompted to down certain free plugins such as Java. Just follow the on-screen prompts.
