Cisco Training+ Programme

Our unique Training+ programme has taken NCAT over 10 years to develop and has been built by listening to feedback from our customers. It starts with the CCNA Training Course. Cisco CCNA certification achieved either of two ways. Look here for more intermation on how the CCNA exams questions are structured or understand how the exam engine works

Whilst other training alternatives exist none provide such a comprehensive training package supporting our customers every step of the way to career and exam success.

  1. Practical Hands-on Training
    A vitally important part of training is the hands-on practicals labs. We understand this and ensure our practical labs start simply and build in complexity gradually introducing problems to improve troubleshooting skills. Delegates who finish labs ahead of others are offered additional tasks instead of being idle which increases pressure on other delegates whilst also improving their own skills. Ensuring that all delegates are fully challenged in a structured environment

  2. Modern Equipment
    NCAT use modern Cisco equipment in all our training courses. However, others training companies still use old legacy equipment which use different configuration commands (very confusing) and do not support the current exam objectives. For examples, 2500 or 2600 routers or 2900XL switches.

  3. Real Equipment
    Simulations, are just that. NCAT training is greatly enhanced by the use of real equipment. For example, cables can be disconnected to check how real networks will respond.

  4. Remote Lab's
    It's difficult to visualise and configure equipment that's invisible. At NCAT equipment is located with the delegate during training allowing experimentation if desired. Not centrally located for the convenience of the training company

  5. Course Manual and Practical Lab Guides
    A comprehensive course manual and practical lab guide developed over 10 years ensures even the most difficult subjects are a breeze. This structure ensures delegates absorb information easily

  6. FREE Cisco Press Books
    For exam focused training Cisco Press books are provided in addition to the course manual and practical lab guide.

  7. Class Size
    Smaller class sizes (max 8) ensures that each delegate receives individual attention ensuring that no one is left behind.

  8. Equipment Sharing
    Each delegate should have their own switch and router. Watching someone else type is not very interesting! Individual equipment also enables students to work at their own pace and make their own mistakes (an important part of learning)

  9. Experienced Instructors
    All training companies claim to have experienced instructors, well they would. It's all relative. NCAT instructors are fully Cisco certified and have all been delivering Cisco Training for over 10 years. Not just the foundation CCNA courses but also the more advanced CCNP courses ensuring all your questions are fully answered. Our Instructors also have extensive practical field experience installing and troubleshooting networks. These experiences not only make the training more relevant but also enable Instructors to pass on many tips not in the books

  10. Post Course Support
    Whilst studying for exams delegates often have questions which only come to light after the training, hence the need for 'Post Course Support'. Just email of phone us with your questions.
