Zero to Engineer
offered by NexGenT
The Zero to Engineer Program consists of six. During the first two modules, you’ll learn about enterprise networks, security, data center and virtualization, collaboration and current industry trends. This will give you an understanding of the big picture of IT and empower you to better understand your career goals and options.
In module 3 you’ll start learning about technical concepts such as ethernet frames, MAC, hubs, switches, routers, subnetting, IP addressing, the OSI model and more. Even going through early modules you’ll be able to schedule one on one mentor sessions with Terry and Jacob. That said, once you finish module 6, you’d have unlocked a network of world-class mentor engineers.
Module 4 is about teaching you how to build your own labs. You’ll work on a bunch of Packet Tracer labs and learn how to install GNS3.
You won’t find the teachings of module 5 anywhere else. In that module, you’ll earn real world engineer skills, how to think like an engineer, which tools you need to get familiar with and the foundations of network management.
Modules 1-5 will prepare you to tackle Zero to Engineer’s monster final project, presented in module 6, where you’ll learn how to plan design and carry out your very own full stack networking project from start to finish. By the end of this module, you will understand HQ/Branch networks and the project build out process that is used in the “real” world.
