Purdue Research Park tenant offers Cisco certification prep classes

August 5, 2015  


MERRILLVILLE, Ind. - Networking engineers in all industrial sectors who are preparing to take the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) exam may benefit from a Purdue Research Park tenant that offers products and monthly preparation courses.

iPexpert Inc. is a tenant in the Purdue Research Park of Northwest Indiana that helps its clients prepare to take the CCIE Collaboration certification exam. Andy Vassar, senior technical instructor, said the prep courses are suitable for all networking professionals.

"Today, almost every company will have a networking engineer design and implement computer networks, and almost everyone runs Cisco Systems equipment in their network," he said. "A CCIE certification is the most respected, sought-after certification in networking and there are many opportunities to use it. Those who earn it are considered the top experts in their profession."

CCIE certification is available on several subjects including Routing and Switching, Data Center, Wireless and Security. Vassar said iPexpert classes at the Purdue Research Park of Northwest Indiana prepare attendees for the CCIE Collaboration certification, which covers communication via telephone, instant messenger and video.

"CCIE certification exams have two parts: passing the two-hour written test makes you eligible to take the eight-hour lab exam," he said. "We offer two classes per month, including the lecture-driven Lab Preparation Boot Camp that covers the technology on a topic-by-topic basis. The following week is the One-Week Lab Experience during which an attendee has the opportunity to take two full-scale eight-hour mock lab exams. The Lab Experience class provides them a good perspective of what the real lab will be like."

Vassar said most students take the two classes in tandem, one week following the other.

"The next class sessions are Aug. 10 for the Lab Preparation Boot Camp and Aug. 17 through 21 for the One-Week Lab Experience," he said. "Next month the courses are Sept. 14 and Sept. 21-25. People can buy admission to the class through the online checkout system at www.ipexpert.com or by calling training advisers at 810-326-1444."

Vassar said iPexpert's sole focus is to help attendees prepare for CCIE certification exams.

"All of our instructors are on the same page, aiming for the same goal: we want attendees to pass these exams," he said. "In addition to the courses that the instructors teach, iPexpert has created workbooks and video on demand solutions so that attendees can pass the lab exam strictly on their own documentation."
