It seems like the “deal” sites are hitting infosec/IT pretty hard lately. First, it was a practically free VPS for as little as $30/year (which I bought two of). And now thanks to a tweet by @drinfosec, it’s two free CCNA video streaming courses by INE.
The first course focuses on the traditional routing and switching exams while the later provides material for the “Voice” certification. In total INE is offering almost 50 free hours of video training. Not only does this deal work out nicely for those wanting to learn some networking basics but also for industry vets looking for some CPEs.
Having a strong understanding of computer networking is essential for any security professional. Whether you get the certification or not, I’ve always found that the CCNA material provided a big chunk of that foundation.
Here are the course descriptions for the two courses:
CCNA Associate Video Course – 640-802: For the CCNA Routing & Switching Exams
