Cisco NEW CCNA R/S (200-125): The Complete Course

About This Course

This course is for Cisco’s newest certification, the CCNA R/S 200-125, that became effective on August 21st, 2016.

This course was produced on September 27, 2016.

Laz is notorious for his nonchalant and unorthodox way of teaching, and has quickly become one of ENLIGHTME’s top instructors with a student base of over 38K+ students in his old CCNA 200-120 (now a private course), and an overall student base of 48K+ for all his courses combined (as of October of 2016).

Not to mention his achievement in being instrumental in getting hris students certified world wide.

Laz’s courses are being taught in over 194 countries and some of these have been translated into other languages.

This is why he has become a rising star in Cisco certifications and Networking!

This is his latest course for the CCNA R/S and has everything you needs to prepare for the 200-125 certification exam.

The course was produced in a very effective manner where you, the student, would feel as if you are in a classroom setting and the instructor is speaking directly to YOU.

Following Laz’s instructions and using his recommendations for other resources like books, etc., has proven to be the key to lead his students to achieve success in passing the certification exam.

In Laz’s style of teaching, (and there is a method to his madness), is very laid back and somewhat unorthodox, as you will see for yourself.

However, this is to make the topics covered more digestible and easier for anyone to understand. Even if you are totally new to Networking.

So, whether you are a novice, need to pass the CCNA or just need a refresher for your current job, this course has everything you need.

Don’t doubt the Instructor with the proven record, but rather embrace his knowledge and his experience when it comes to this; after all…his reputation depends on your success!

You will acquire the knowledge in this course to make it transferable to real world use, as a Cisco and/or IT Professional.

DISCLAIMER: Please note that the simulators/emulators used in this course are not part of the course. It is the students responsibility to have these to practice with. The Cisco Packet Tracer & VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary software and can only be obtained through Cisco. But students have more options that those. They can create their own lab with real equipment, get BOSON or GNS3. It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course. Please also NOTE: .pkt files are not up-loadable to ENLIGHTME’s site. This means you would have to replicate the labs here in order to practice and follow along.

This course will give you an in-depth understanding of networking, using routers and switches and their various configurations and connections. You will learn how to configure; default, static and dynamic routing. You will comprehend how to manipulate each of the routing protocols attributes to meet the requirements of the network.

This course will also prepare you in Layer 2 technology and its various configurations, such as; VLAN’s, VTP, STP, PortFast, EtherChannel, Port-Security, Inter-VLAN communication & Trunking; plus the newest requirements needed for CISCO’s NEW CCNA (200-125) certification exam as well.

You will also acquire the knowledge needed to secure the routers through the use of Access-list, configuring the different types of NAT & will be able to manage the router’s components.

As a students, you will also be able to thoroughly grasp the concepts of both Internet Protocols; IPv4 & IPv6. These are KEY to any Network!

Please keep in mind that Laz has his own book called “The Only IP Book You Will Ever Need!” that will further help those that need a more in-depth understanding of IPv4 & IPv6.

Also covered in this course is Wide Area Network Protocols like HDLC, PPP, Frame Relay, HSRP, BGP, MPLS, NHRP, MGRE among other things.

You will also learn how to create redundancy in networks through the use of Redundancy Protocols such as HSRP which is just as important. Also, within the WAN, you, the student, will also learn how to create VPN’s and GRE Tunnels among other things that are crucial in passing the new CCNA.

Great achievements and success is at your grasp!

All you need to do is let this course guide you through it.

The possibilities are going to be endless once you take this CCNA certification course.

And now, with ENLIGHTMES Pilot program for Certification TEST Courses (which this course is part of), your odds of succeeding has just skyrocketed!

2016 will be the year to reach your goal!

If you are determined, ambitious and hungry for a new beginning…then 2016 should be your year.
…and how better to start the year than to get your CCNA!
Whether you are interested in the CCNA R/S, the CCNA Wireless or just want to understand the key topics of these certification exams, taking one or all of my courses, will get you a little closer to that goal.
But, don’t take my word for it…please take a look at the FREE previews (they are available in all my courses) and see for yourself.
As for me, 2016 will be the year of putting out new courses for different types of IT certifications among other things

What you wanted to know about me:

If you are tired of the same old methods of learning and want someone that is pretty much unconventional, but at the same time will provide you with an enjoyable learning experience in layman’s terms…then please preview my courses and you will discover that I am your guy.
I am a Network Engineer with over 14+ years in the field and in the teaching industry. I hold the following certifications: CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, Security+, Network+, A+, MCP, MCTS & MOS and I just passed the first of two test for the CCIE! My teaching experience stems from teaching at institutions like Palm Beach Community College, New Horizons, Florida Career College (now Anthem College) and The Academy of South Florida, not to mention teaching at my own training facility in Miami, Florida.
Having been in all sides of the spectrum; as a student, a teacher/trainer, and in the field, I believe this uniquely qualifies me to understand the student, and what they have been exposed to as opposed to what they really want to accomplish. These two are sometimes extremely conflicting and frustrating. That is why I teach in the manner I do and can relate to the student’s rejection of the Status Quo.
I have taught corporate employees at MetroPCS (now T-Mobil) and have also taught IT professionals of companies like The Florida Marlins, Hospital personnel & Attorney’s firms amongst others to be able to acquire their CCNA certification and/or their Microsoft certifications; like the MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist). YES!…I am also an applications instructor and also teach Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access.
I teach in an unconventional way that allows for students to understand the subject matter and can therefore, not only prepare them for a Cisco and/or Microsoft certification exam, but apply my methods in the real world. I strive to give the student a greater opportunity to compete in the current job markets. Do I go above and beyond what is needed for a certification?…YES, I do!…because it’s not only about getting a certification, it’s also about making sure the student is prepared for a job interview and/or maintaining their current job by enhancing their skills. This is where I step in and make sure that the student is prepared for whatever they need and make them an asset to their employer. Everyone has different requirements and I make sure, or at least I try, to provide information for most scenarios.
My classes and/or courses are very simple and that’s how I like to teach. If things are kept simple, easy and explained in a way that the student can grasp quickly and retain the information…then I have achieved my goal!
For those that do not know me yet, you may not be used to my style of teaching, but you will soon get accustomed to it :)… I’m very laid back, I try to make learning fun and I teach in layman’s terms…no physics jargon or mumbo jumbo in my teachings. My courses are very interactive and extremely dynamic!…you will not find my lectures monotone or boring, because falling asleep, for lack of excitement, is just NOT an option. Just take a look for yourself at my video previews, which I always provide on ALL my courses, so you can determine if I’m the right guy to help you get your industry specific certifications. ;)
I certainly hope that after a careful review of my credentials & testimonials (you can Google it you know!), I’m the Cisco & Microsoft Instructor you’re looking for!
