This course will be scheduled on a weekend-by-weekend basis when attendance reaches minimum 5 students, and maximum 7.

Who should attend?

Individuals with basic computer experience can benefit from this course, however this information-packed curriculum is focused on new IT professionals who wish to take their game to the next level. Motivation is the number one factor to successfully complete this course and obtain your CCNA certification.


Who is the Instructor?

My name is Nicholas Biller. I have been in the IT field for 15 years, worked for several large corporate companies, consulted for the US Gov't, and served in the United States Air Force. I have attended the Cisco Academy, 5-day Boot Camps, and have self studied my way to 5 Cisco certifications. I have trained friends, family, corporate partners, and the nations finest. My methods are firm, but affective. Credentials can be furnished upon request.


Is this Boot Camp sponsored by Cisco?

No. This means I can teach the curriculum they don't want you to see! I can teach MY way!


What does tuition include?

This class will include my customize 25+ page curriculum, 24 hours of intense one-on-one style instruction, hands-on real Cisco routers and switches, custom designed scenarios, testing strategies and tips, coverage of all the CCNA exam objectives, practice questions, a highly trained instructor, and of course fuel for the class (coffee, snacks, lunch etc...)


How much does tuition cost?

The current rate is $1200 and will include everything listed above. Contact me for further details!


What methods of payment do you accept?

I accept Cashier's Checks, Cash, Money Orders, and PayPal. Once payment is received in full, you will be scheduled for class - even if you need to reschedule, your payment is good for up to 1 year!


What if I'm new to IT?

Anyone who is willing to put in the time and dedication to become a network professional can and should take this course. I have designed the material from beginning to end, progressing logically and building upon learned concepts. If you can follow simple instructions, study, and practice what you are taught, even you can pass the CCNA!


Why is tuition cost so low, compared to corporate competition?

Large corporations have TONS of overhead, for example, I have no boss to pay, no nationwide advertising to keep, I do not provide Cisco Press Books or testing vouchers (which the corporate training programs roll into tuition costs and pass it to you)


Why should I choose your Boot Camp?

I am currently working as a Sr. Network Engineer at the hippest company in this industry, who also ranked at #7 on the forbes 500. I am passionate about what I do, and I teach because I love it! I have sat in on several Boot Camps and training programs, and they all have the same draw backs:


  • Corporate atmosphere fueled by Under-motivated instructors.
  • Overbooked, large classrooms create impersonal vibe.
  • $3500-$4500 tuition!! You pay 3-4x as much as my course!!
  • Courses are 5-day, Mon-Fri. What if you work, or go to school?
  • Advertised 5-day, courses turn into 4-day (Friday is review & testing)
  • Advertised 50hr week turns into less then 30! (large classrooms, breaks, lunches)
  • Corporate style training regimen suited for the masses (aka, lower 80%).
