8 Hours of Training
This course is several hours long and will cover OSPF at great lengths. I will explain the inner workings of this highly scalable and complexed protocol.
Students will get a thorough understanding of OSPF and how we would implement it in a real world environment.
We will discuss the following concepts OSPF terminology; process ID's, LSA, DBD, LDB's and much more. We will be configuring OSPF in a point-to-point and broadcast type of network and understand the differences between them. Analyze the election process of DR and BDR using loopback addresses, priority numbers or putting in the router id manually.
Once you get an understanding of how OSPF works and it's configurations we will then go into explaining and creating multiple area OSPF and OSPFV3 and analyze them as well.
This is a lecture based course using the Touch-IT Technology Smart board, which will make learning very interactive and engaging. Hands on labs will be used to drill down the concepts learned in each lecture using Cisco's Packet Tracer.
My method will make you feel like you are sitting in a classroom environment and give the most needed hands on experience!
Handouts will be available to facilitate learning and practice.
This course will help the student become familiar with OSPF routing using various methods and how to implement them in your environment…but it will also help in preparing for any networking certification or Computer Science Degree; not to mention the fact that for those already in the field, it will further improve routing decisions in their particular networks.
If you are tired of the same old methods of learning and want someone that is pretty much unconventional, but at the same time will provide you with an enjoyable learning experience in layman's terms...then please preview my courses and you will discover that I am your guy.
I am a Network Engineer with over 15+ years in the field and in the teaching industry. I hold the following certifications: CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, Security+, Network+, A+, MCP, MCTS & MOS and I just passed the first of two test for the CCIE!
My teaching experience stems from teaching at institutions like Palm Beach Community College, New Horizons, Florida Career College (now Anthem College) and The Academy of South Florida, not to mention teaching at my own training facility in Miami, Florida.
Having been in all sides of the spectrum; as a student, a teacher/trainer, and in the field, I believe this uniquely qualifies me to understand the student, and what they have been exposed to as opposed to what they really want to accomplish. These two are sometimes extremely conflicting and frustrating. That is why I teach in the manner I do and can relate to the student's rejection of the Status Quo.
I have taught corporate employees at MetroPCS (now T-Mobil) and have also taught IT professionals of companies like The Florida Marlins, Hospital personnel & Attorney's firms amongst others to be able to acquire their CCNA certification and/or their Microsoft certifications; like the MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist). YES!...I am also an applications instructor and also teach Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access.
I teach in an unconventional way that allows for students to understand the subject matter and can therefore, not only prepare them for a Cisco and/or Microsoft certification exam, but apply my methods in the real world. I strive to give the student a greater opportunity to compete in the current job markets. Do I go above and beyond what is needed for a certification?...YES, I do!...because it's not only about getting a certification, it's also about making sure the student is prepared for a job interview and/or maintaining their current job by enhancing their skills. This is where I step in and make sure that the student is prepared for whatever they need and make them an asset to their employer. Everyone has different requirements and I make sure, or at least I try, to provide information for most scenarios.
My classes and/or courses are very simple and that's how I like to teach. If things are kept simple, easy and explained in a way that the student can grasp quickly and retain the information...then I have achieved my goal!
For those that do not know me yet, you may not be used to my style of teaching, but you will soon get accustomed to it :)... I'm very laid back, I try to make learning fun and I teach in layman's terms...no physics jargon or mumbo jumbo in my teachings. My courses are very interactive and extremely dynamic!...you will not find my lectures monotone or boring, because falling asleep, for lack of excitement, is just NOT an option. Just take a look for yourself at my video previews, which I always provide on ALL my courses, so you can determine if I'm the right guy to help you get your industry specific certifications. ;)
"This course made it so easy to understand the ospf protocol. Laz makes everything so very easy to understand. The quality of teaching couldn't be better!! Keep Laz making videos for this hard to understand occupation Please. We need a course for all certifications!!!!"
"This is a very detailed and informative series. You broke everything down and cemented many topics for me. Great job, thanks for putting this together."
