CCNA Courses

CIS 83  (CCNA 3 & 4 )  Scaling Networks and Connecting Networks)

This course discusses the fundamental of networking protocols and processes, building an in depth understanding and a foundation in these protocols. This course includes Ethernet, IP, subnetting, ARP, TCP/IP (including TCP, UDP, DNS, DHCP, ICMP), LANs, switching, wireless LANs, packet forwarding, encapsulation, and the interoperability between the protocols.

This course discusses the fundamental of routing and switching essentials along with addional routing protocols. This course discusses switching concepts. securing the switch, VLANs, VLAN trunks, routing concepts, EIGRP for IPv4 and IPv6, OSPF for IPv4 and IPv6, static routing for IPv4 and IPv6, ACLs, and Inter-VLAN routing.

NOTE: I have not taught this course in a few years but my materials are still available. The presentations for the routing protocol chapters are available in CIS 82. For more current information for this course please visit Gerlinde Brady's web site: http://www.cabrillo.edu/~gbrady/cis83.htm

CCNP Courses


This course surveys the fields of study within computer science and computer technology with a focus on computer literacy in the 21st century. Topics covered include: hardware, software, development systems, the Internet, and networks, including PC and Macintosh.

Previous Course Materials

NOTE: This course is no longer taught but the materials are still available. This aligns with the obsoleted Implementing Secure Converged WANs (ISCW) 642-825 exam. This course covers advanced skills required to secure and enhance services in enterprise networks for teleworkers and remote sites. It focuses on securing remote access, VPN client configuration and other topics including Mulit-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS), IPsec, Cisco device hardening, IOS firewall features, and IOS threat defense features.

NOTE: I have not taught this course in a few years but my materials are still available. This course discusses the fundamentals of Wireless LANs (WLAN) including wireless fundamentals, 802.11 protocol and standards, 802.11 MAC, medium access mechanisms, DCF operations, RTS/CTS, 802.11 technologies including FHSS, DSSS, OFDM, ERP; 802.11 a, b, g and others; station connectivity and association, access point configuration, antenna systems, security and site surveys.


IPv6 Course

This course will give you a solid understanding of IPv6. IPv6 is much more than just addressing. IETF used this opportunity to improve the protocol including address allocation and neighbor discovery. In this class we will understand how IPv6 is implemented on hosts (Windows, MAC and Linux) and on the router and switches.
