I would just like to say that the whole Training Camp experience was fantastic and I would highly recommend it for anyone that is interested in achieving Cisco certifications. All of the things done by them made for a pleasant experience.

Mike Guzman


Training Camp’s trainers, especially our instructor Jeff, are in a class of their own. John’s blend of industry knowledge and teaching acumen is outstanding



I believe self-study would have been much much harder to comprehend the information and pass the test on a first try. My colleagues who self-studied flunked the first time they took it. I passed the first time after attending the boot camp.

Andrew Horan
