#vBrownBag Cisco Certification Track

Starting on May 13th and going through July 23rd, the ProfessionalVMware.com #vBrownBag will bring you a series designed to strengthen your networking skills and help prepare you for various Cisco certifications.

Overview

The series will kick off with a tour of the Cisco Learning Network by Matt Saunders and Brett Lovins; the CLN is a great resource as you prepare for various Cisco certifications.  Then Chris Wahl will give us a Networking for VMware Administrators primer followed by  Josh Coen covering the installation and configuration of the Cisco 1000v virtual distributed switch.  With an understanding of network concepts for VMware admins under your belt, Byron Schaller will help you setup a virtual lab to use as you prepare for your journey towards the Cisco certifications.  The Cisco exam track will start with the CCENT exam blueprint by Daniel Bogda.  We will then move on to the CCNA Routing and Switching and Datacenter certifications presented by Ed Henry, Scott McDermott and Tom Hollingsworth before wrapping up on the CCNP with Lawrence Kohan.
