Course Description

About this Course
This course is over 6 hours in length and will cover all aspects of IPv4. Students will learn IP addressing, Subnetting, VLSM, Route Summarization, and Wildcard Masking. The course will also show students how to assign IP addresses to PC's and Routers. Students will gain an understanding of the TCP/IP properties such as gateways, DNS, WINS, and the use of alternate addresses

DISCLAIMER: Please note that the simulators/emulators used in this course are not part of the course. It is the students responsibility to have these to practice with. The Cisco Packet Tracer and/or VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary software and can only be obtained through Cisco. It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course.

This is a lecture based course using a whiteboard and hands on labs using Cisco's Packet Tracer. My method will make you feel like you are sitting in a classroom environment and give you some hands on experience.

Handouts and labs will be available to facilitate learning and practice.

My IP course will help you in becoming comfortable with, not only IPv4, but it will also help you in preparing for any networking certification and Computer Science Degrees; not to mention the fact, that for those that are already working in the field, it will help you in calculating IP addresses without a calculator. This method should expedite the way you convert in order to make you faster, better and stronger!

Basic knowledge
Students will need a basic understanding of Networks
Students will need a simulator/emulator to go along with the course
Students can follow along with my book (available on AMAZON), called "The Only IP BOOK YOU Will Ever Need!
Students should have a great desire to know this protocol, not only for certification purposes, but also for the real world

Learning Objectives

This course will prepare students to subnet without using a calculator
Once you finish my course on IP’s, you will have a strong grasp of IPv4. Students will be able to create and implement an IP addressing scheme, assign IP addresses to PC’s with proper subnetmask, gateways if needed, as well as DNS
At the end of this course, students will learn how configure an IP address on a routers interface through the CLI and finally test the network for connectivity using various commands.
The understanding of IP’s is an essential element for a Network Professional and this course will prepare the student for any networking certification that has IPv4 as part of their exams
This course will help students that are looking to take certifications such as N+, CCNA, CCNP and MCSE
IPs is the core of networking and mastering this knowledge is key to any IT position
This course will make the student efficient, valuable and an asset in a Networking environment
