Cisco Course in Lausanne or canton Vaud

Hi guys,

I'm looking for a course in Cisco CCNA(since I can't find a job)

I live in lausanne and I've found 2-3 course but the price are really crazy (more than 4000chf for 10 days of course)

I hope you know some good school

thanks

Re: Cisco Course in Lausanne or canton Vaud

My guys have used this place in Bristol. A lot cheaper (even by UK standards) and still a certified Cisco course. The feedback has been good (even from a ex-CCNP guy who was recertifying).

Easyjet flies to Bristol from Geneva and combined, it's still probably cheaper than a local course!

Re: Cisco Course in Lausanne or canton Vaud

It depends on your Networking level. The CCNA used to be only a 5 day course. This one is quite intensive by all accounts.

Have you had any previous Cisco or networking experience?

Re: Cisco Course in Lausanne or canton Vaud

When I took my CCNA (ahem... about 13 years ago ) it was only a 5 day course (ICND). My background then was general IT support and about 4 months previous experience in Cisco router and switch configuration and troubleshooting.

Perhaps give the course a call and see what they say?

I would recommend looking up some of the labs online or try and locate some old/secondhand equipment running IOS from somewhere. If you can be familiar with the commands, it will help with the course.

Also practice your binary and read up on subnets. You don't need a course to do this but it is very key to Networking.

Finally some places in the UK offer bootcamps but they aren't cheap either. However, some companies do offer last minute discounts if there are spare places.

Re: Cisco Course in Lausanne or canton Vaud

12 weeks? Blimey, that must be to compensate for all the Guinness drinking in between!

Good luck! I hope you find something. If I think of anything else I'll let you know.

Re: Cisco Course in Lausanne or canton Vaud

Have a look at the sample exams before you do the course. Admittedly, I studied networking in university, but I only had to glance at a textbook for a few hours and try the virtual lab a little bit in order to pass the exam (12 years ago).

I have basic knowledge, I'm also sure that 5 days are not enough but they are a start and after will be more easy study at home, isn't it?
