Firebrand instructors, Dave Petts and Richard Greaves, were this year acknowledged for providing the highest quality of Cisco training when they won the Cisco Instructor Excellence Award 2015.



Both trainers were recognised amongst the top Routing & Switching instructors in the EMEAR region.

When announcing the award, Cisco said: “The 2015 award winners exemplified the highest quality training experience and demonstrated best overall performance.”

The award, as measured by student satisfaction surveys in 2014, highlights the exemplary commitment of Firebrand’s instructors around the world. Both Dave Petts and Richard Greaves have proved their technical expertise and drive to become the best in their field.

Cisco CCNP Voice and CCNP Security Updates

Cisco has rebranded and updated the CCSP and CCVP certifications. As a result, our courses have been updated to reflect this. The content now includes the latest curriculum and exam updates.

14-day Cisco CCNP Security & CCNA Security

This is aligned specifically to the job role of the Cisco Network Security Engineer. The CCNP Security certification is the most efficient way to ensure Network Security Engineers have the practical skills needed to deploy, service, maintain, and support Cisco network security solutions.

11-day Cisco CCNP Security

This was previously the CCSP. The CCNA Security certification is a prerequisite for this course. Students now have a choice of whether they attend the 11- or 14-day course, depending on if they already have the CCNA Security certification.

14-day Cisco CCNP Voice

This was previously the CCVP. The course will provide students with the knowledge required to implement, operate, configure, and troubleshoot a converged IP network.

Cisco CCIE coming soon...

Cisco recently announced that the four "core knowledge" questions that were added to the CCIE R&S v4.0 and Voice v3.0 exams a year ago have now been removed. This is due to the fact that the rest of the exam is deemed to be successfully validating expert skills.

However, they will continue to be used in other CCIE lab exams. Core knowledge questions appear at the beginning of an exam, and normally require five words or less to answer.

Cisco explains: "Total lab time will remain at eight hours. For the CCIE R&S Lab Exam, this means candidates will begin with the two-hour Troubleshooting section, followed by a six-hour Configuration section.

"For CCIE Voice, candidates will have the full eight hours to complete the integrated exam. At this time, only the R&S and Voice certifications have been designed and validated to allow removal of Core Knowledge."

Continue to check the Firebrand Training website, as we will soon be offering the Cisco CCIE certification faster than anyone else.
