Prerequisites

To fully benefit from this course, students should have the following prerequisite skills and knowledge:  Working data and/or voice background.  In this course, the assumption is that you have experience in either the ?data world? or the ?telephony world?, and are now being asked to gain knowledge on ?Cisco Unified Communications?, which combines both worlds. ICND is a highly recommended prerequisite for this course if you are new to the data world

  • Working data and/or voice background. In this course, the assumption is that you have experience in either the ’data world’ or the ’telephony world’, and are now being asked to gain knowledge on ’Cisco Unified Communications’, which combines both worlds.

This is my second course with ExitCertified. This course exceeded my expectations. The teacher was great and the class was fun.

Better arrangement was made to make sure we receive necessary tools to attend the course days before the date, this saves time to join.

Good job coping with the "new" training, of having video learning in a group setting.

The course material and instructor were very good. easy to follow, lab was setup nicely and was able to complete most of the lab material.
The Koretex App is absolute garbage and very cumbersome to use on a tablet/ipad. A PDF file would be 100 times better than that atrocious app.
As a recommendation this class should be 5 days instead of 4 as some chapters had to be rushed.

Very educational and enjoyable. Format was excellent; recommend to anyone who wants to get serious about learning AWS.
