My company is going to pay to send me to a bootcamp and they want it
to be local here in Dallas, TX. I have found 2 coming up and was
wondering if anyone had experience with either, or if someone knows of
another good one. The ones I found are through Globalnet Training
(this class will be taught by Todd Lammle) and one through Global
Knowledge, though they do not offer on-site testing or lab equipment.
I am leaning toward the first one, but am also looking for opinions.

Thanks in advance.

I liked the Global Knowledge one and yes they had hands-on labs, the
equipment wasn't on site, but it was real equipment and labs were
descent.  I don't about Globalnet....

Re: looking for CCNA bootcamp recommendation
I've taken a fair amount of classes through Global Knowledge.  Some better
than others, but all pretty good.  I never took a boot camp there.

For the regular classes, they used to have live equipment.  Then, they
started going with remote labs.  There is good and bad with that.  It is
always nice to be able to look in the rack and plug the cables up yourself.
But, then again, with the remote labs, you can just set your equipment to
start at a particular lab number and reset.  It takes a little bit for it to
configure and load (because it is real equipment).  This is a very cool
feature though.  You can sometimes access after hours from your home/hotel
as well depending on how they schedule the equipment.

Some of the classes (such as voip) would still mandate that equipment is
brought in.  I would suspect that the CCNA boot camp would be remote labs.
If I was looking for a CCNA boot camp, I'd certainly consider them.

It might a question worth asking both places if they have equipment local or

Hope that helps,

I am looking into a class for you.  I'm waiting to see about the hands-
on lab, pass guarantee programs and etc. for you.
