CCNP Switch (300-115): The Complete Course

The CCNP Switch is one of three tests needed to pass & become CCNP certifie

Instructed by Lazaro (Laz) Diaz

  • Student will acquire a better understanding of the CCNP Switch requirements for their certification
  • Students will learn the why and how of applying the topics covered to real world environments.
  • Students should be confident that they will be able to pass their CCNP Switch exam if the students adheres to their studies and understands each subject taught herein.
  • Students will be prepared to take my CCNP Switch Test Course here in Udemy if he/she chooses to do so.

 The Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks

is but one (1) of three(3) essential courses needed to pass in order to attain the most coveted CCNP Routing & Switching certification

The CCNP is Cisco's Professional level certification and should be the next logical step for those wanting to advance their Networking Career within Cisco.

This course will cover everything necessary to prepare the student to pass the CCNP Switch (300-115) portion of Cisco's certification exam.

This course is full of information, it is entertaining, engaging and explained in a very simplistic manner to make it extremely easy for the student to comprehend every topic discussed within this course. 

NOTE: Please be aware that you must first pass the CCNA to advance to the CCNP or Professional Level.

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 & VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary software and can only be obtained through Cisco. But students have more options that those. They can create their own lab with real equipment, get BOSON or GNS3. It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course. 

  • Students taking this course should have already passed the CCNA R/S certification before attempting to take the CCNP
  • Students should know that this course is one (1) of three (3) needed to pass and attain the CCNP R/S certification.
  • This course uses the CCNP Switch study guide from Cisco Press, but any CCNP Switch study guide can be used.
  • Students need to get a simulator/emulator to follow along (simulators/emulators are NOT part of the course)
  • Any one that wants to advance their career in Cisco with a professional certification.
  • Any one that wants to advance their career in Networking.
  • Anyone that wants to brush up on Cisco's CCNP Switch exam.
  • Anyone that wants and/or needs Cisco's CCNP Switch certification.

Lazaro (Laz) Diaz,

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 many years in the field and in the teaching industry. I hold the following certifications: CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, CCNP, Security+, Network+, A+, MCP, MCTS & MOS. My teaching experience stems from teaching at various institutions in the US. Now, I bring the classroom to you! I've taught over 100K students worldwide...courtesy of the internet. Thank goodness for technology! ;-) 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 you, the student. I know first hand what you have been exposed to as opposed to what you 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 your rejection of the Status Quo. I have taught corporate employees at MetroPCS (now T-Mobile) and have also taught IT professionals of companies like The Florida Marlins, Ulysse Nardin, Alberta Water Department (Canada), The Assurant Group, Hospital personnel & Attorney's firms, among others. to guide them in acquiring their IT certifications or general knowledge. However, my expertice also extends to being able to teach applications as well. YES!...I am also an applications instructor and qualified to teach Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access.This, of course, includes the MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist) certification. As you can see, I am a multifaceted person and consider myself to be an eternal student as well. 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, Microsoft or CompTIA 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 that you, the student, is prepared for a job interview and/or maintaining your current job by enhancing your skills. This is where I step in and make sure that you are prepared for whatever you need and make you an asset to your 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. I truly believe in "KISS",,,NO, I don't want to kiss you, what this means "keep it simple stupid" - If things are kept simple, easily 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. ;) I certainly hope that after a careful review of my credentials & testimonials (you can Google it you know!), I'm the Cisco, Microsoft or CompTIA Instructor you're looking for!
