“After experiencing at least four other CCNA instructors/courses Neil’s CCNA course is by far the best. This course just puts it all into action in a clear and concise way.
One of the best things I like is how much of a complete course this is. He provides instructions on how to setup your lab environment with many practice labs, sample study plans and extra guidance and resources.
But to me the real cherry on top is Neil’s active involvement. He is quick at responding to questions and really has a genuine care to help us all succeed.”
– John Artinian
What’s with the deadline to enroll?
Remember when you had a homework assignment for school? And you did the homework the night before it had to be handed in.
The fact is we all leave things until the last minute, and often we wouldn’t do them at all if there wasn’t a deadline there to give us a push.
Doing that homework was good for your future self, and so is this course. I KNOW it’s going to get you a better job and better pay, so I’m giving you the extra bump to get started.

“I found Neil’s course and quickly realized that it was designed to help candidates not only pass the exam, but also to understand how networks function in the real world.
Six weeks later I passed the CCNA exam, and I am now a Technical Consultant at a Telecommunication Service Provider.”
– Abdulai Fadiga
But isn’t passing the CCNA exam difficult?
Yes it’s true that getting your CCNA takes time and work. That’s one of its biggest benefits – it proves you have the motivation to succeed.
None of the topics are hard to understand, but you do need to spend the time to learn them. The harsh truth is that most people are too lazy to learn the skills that will take their career to the next level.
I make the topics easy to understand, whether you already have years of experience or are starting as a complete beginner. I’m with you every step of the way, and if you have any questions just ask, I love to help.
I promise you will learn everything you need to pass the exam.
I’m giving you everything you need to get the job you want, now you just have to watch the course.
I heard that Cloud means we don’t need Network Engineers anymore?
Staff members don’t sit in the cloud, they sit in a corporate office or work from home. Companies using cloud services need network connections between their cloud servers, their offices and their staff, the same as if those servers were in the company’s own data center.
Cloud has made enterprise class data centers more affordable to more companies, and they all need qualified network engineers to support them. Demand for network engineers is at its highest ever:
Network Engineer Job Vacancy Trend
Network Engineer Job Vacancy Trend. ITJobsWatch.co.uk
Every year since I started the doom-mongers have said that whatever this year’s latest technology is will kill our job, yet here we are still earning the big bucks. Every new IT technology since networks have existed has increased the need for network engineers.
And if you go on to specialize in cloud, networking is one of the core skills you’ll need.
You can take the Cisco CCNA 200-301 Gold Bootcamp from home or anywhere in the world.
Student on laptop
You have permanent lifetime access to all the course material so you can go at your own pace and do the lessons on your schedule. You can work through the entire program from start to finish, or pick and choose individual tutorials and configuration demos as and when you need them.
“Breaks everything down and is easy to follow. Also, the format of the course is great because he goes through the entire explanation of the subject then has the lab and with the provided documents it makes it great for retaining information.”
– Brian Briggs
Better Than Classroom Training. WAY better
When you take classroom training you’re taking a gamble on the quality of the course content and instructor. You’ll often find a supernerd who knows the technology but can’t explain it in simple terms, or a lifelong trainer who has no real world experience. When it’s over you can’t experience the tutorials again or ask the instructor any more questions.
With the CCNA Gold Bootcamp you know you’re getting the best training possible, verified by over 10,000 outstanding reviews. I explain things in an easy to understand and friendly way, and the course is filled with explanations of how things work in the real world so you’ll be ready to work on production networks.
You can learn in the comfort of your own home, and I’m always here for you whenever you need any help.
No classroom training comes close to providing the depth of content or quality of this course.
“Explanations are precise and concise. This is the best material on networking in general and on the CCNA. It is very good for those who are new to networking as well as those who are advanced and even experts.”
– Elikem Affram
… and Less Expensive too
If you sat on an official Cisco CCNA training course you’d be looking at paying $4000. You’d get less content, less quality, no quizzes… and pay 400x more for the privilege! If your company are funding your CCNA study then paying for this course is an absolute no brainer for them.
You get the best training available, it doesn’t take you out of the office for a week, and it costs WAY less. Sweet!
Both you and your employer get huge value from this investment in your future.

You can get started immediately with just your laptop. No equipment or previous experience is required.
“Impressive amount of detail in every explanation – I have some years of active networking experience and am still finding myself compelled to sit through to learn more efficient methods.
I wanted a test study guide, and I actually got a much more solid fundamental understanding of networking.”
– Tyler Grimmett
