Technical and business training specialist Vortex 6 has partnered with remote learning specialist Retendo to offer interactive Cisco training over WebEx.
Vortex 6 will offer all Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) and Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) classes delivered in two hour sessions twice a week over a five week period. The courses are aimed at the significant number of engineers who would like to undertake education but who are unable to attend training in a classroom due to budget, time or geographical constraints.
Students are taught by Cisco Certified Instructors using official Cisco student material. In addition to the lab exercises, all students will be given three months access to live labs over the internet to allow them to practice their learning without affecting a live environment.
The courses follow the industry recognised GEAR (Gather, Expand, Apply and Review) standard and each lesson is followed by self paced lab exercises using a highly interactive and informative format. Students aiming for CCNA certification at the end of the course can also book attendance to a Cisco testing centre through Vortex 6.
“Not everyone can undertake classroom training so we have introduced this range of interactive courses”, commented Peter Olive, Managing Director at Vortex 6. “Remote training allows engineers to study in bite sized chunks without leaving the office while reducing travel and accommodation expenses. Organisation can also train groups of people at the same time no matter where they are located.”
