Due to Covid-19 safety restrictions PhoenixTS will temporarily be unable to provide food to our students who attend class at our Training Center; however, our Break Areas are currently open where students will find a constant supply of Coffee, Tea and Water. Students may bring their own lunch and snacks to eat in our breakrooms or at their seat in the classroom or eat out at one of the many nearby restaurants.
Our 5-day instructor-led SWITCH (Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks) training and certification boot camp in Washington, DC Metro, Tysons Corner, VA, Columbia, MD or Live Online is part of the CCNP certification path. It is designed to provide the necessary knowledge and skills to plan, configure and verify the proper implementation of complex enterprise campus switching solutions.
In addition, students will be led through all the exam objectives so that they are properly prepared to handle the SWITCH exam at course end.
Currently, there are no public classes scheduled. Please contact a Phoenix TS Training Consultant to discuss hosting a private class at 240-667-7757.
