This course teaches you the fundamental skills necessary to configure and manage modern, open standards-based networking solutions. This course consists of approximately 20% lecture and 80% hands-on lab exercises to help you learn how to implement and validate small to medium enterprise network solutions. This 3-day course prepares network professionals for the Aruba Certified Switching Associate (ACSA) V1 exam. In this course, participants learn about ArubaOS switch technologies including: VLANs, secure access, redundancy technologies such as MSTP, link aggregation techniques including LACP, and switch virtualization with Aruba’s Virtual Switching Framework (VSF). You also learn about IP Routing including static and dynamic IP routing with OSPF. This course teaches you how to deploy Aruba wireless Access Points and configure Aruba Instant Access Point (IAP) Clustering technology. It also teaches you how to configure, manage and monitor the network with the Aruba AirWave management solution.

Setup for the training was easy and participants were mostly provided with the necessary things for continued learning, however, a couple people in my class dealt with technical issues with their virtual machines in the virtual training.

This is my first training with ExitCertified and I truly enjoyed this learning experience. I have taken other classes where the instructor solicited students for so much input it was unclear who was teaching the class. Other experiences were filled with so much personal chatter the instructor had to rush thru the course material. This instructor was very professional and actually delivered the materially.

The course is perfectly designed with material and labs to get hands on experience on AWS, nicely done!

We covered a lot of material in three days. This was a real crash course in different AWS Infrastructure.

Pretty concise course mainly covering AWS Redshift while briefly introducing practical use examples with other services for companies.
