With thousands of IT Certifications around the world, there is a giant in Networking domain – Cisco. Cisco Certifications are the Industry Learning IT Certifications amongst others. Cisco has set its benchmark in the limitless pool of IT Certifications. It is one of those certifications which still have its values and standards.
There are the total of 27 Cisco Certifications divided on the basis of Networking domains and difficulty levels, with Entry level having two certifications, Associate level with ten certifications, Professional level with eight certifications and Expert Level with seven certifications.
There are 3 ways to do Cisco training with I-Medita that are, Classroom Trainings, Online Trainings and by Recorded Videos. Apparently, there have been many students confused about the idea of Online Training and it perks.
To understand this lets deep dive into how Cisco Online Training works at I-Medita, how over 300+ students have attended live online training by I-Medita in past 6 months and how over 6000+ students have taken our pre-recorded videos of CCNA Version 3, CCNP Routing, CCNP Switching, CCNA Security, CCNP Security.
As suggested, there are three ways training can be given:
1. Classroom Training – This is a regular classroom training method, where an individual has to come to our Cisco training labs / institute in Pune or wherever we arrange boot camps across the world and attend the training. This is a traditional training which we all understand.
2. Online – Instructor-led training – This training is the main focus for the article’s discussion.
Online trainings are for those who cannot attend the classroom trainings. They take these trainings through video conferencing softwares.
How does it work?
I-Medita’s Cisco-certified CCIE instructors get online via Skype/ Webex/ Team Viewer and have digital pads with them to write on screens. They set up a Skype voice call and share their screen with the respective audience (enrolled students). Now, sometimes we see that students have less bandwidth internet, in that case, we share the screen via Team Viewer and a voice call is set up via Skype.
To understand better, watch this small 15 seconds video of how I-Medita takes these Instructor Led Cisco Online Trainings. This video has three views; one shows the screen of the trainer, second shows the screen of student and the lasts one shows the online broadcast of whatever trainer is writing. In this video, we have trainer and student sitting at one place, however, as the internet is globalized so this Online Training of our Cisco Professional Courses can be imparted across the globe and if we can connect to Martians via the internet. 😉 Kidding!
Now when you have seen this video, one question that might have come to your mind is, how can I resolve my doubts?
You can keep adding your questions in notes, or you can even ask your doubts like we all do in regular classroom training, ‘coz you are on a live call via this online training, you can directly ask the question, speak to trainer and get a feeling that you are in a classroom actually.
Another question that comes is how to access the real cisco devices for which I-Medita is famous and how to do lab practice?
Well, we have solution for this as well, we help you take remote access of the real devices from our lab and those devices are dedicated to you for 2/3 hours per day as per your request, however if you need the device access at night (Indian time 8PM – 8AM) you can have it for more than 3 hours as well.
I-Medita’s sole focus is on grooming you to be the best in class, best in town, best network engineer with amazing knowledge about Cisco and its routers, switches, firewalls in state, country and across the world.
Let me answer some more questions for you.
Do I have to pay the fees first and then only I can attend the training?
Dear students, I-Medita believes in quality education and we do give demo classes for free of cost i.e. you can speak, spend over 4/6 hours spread over 1/2 days with the trainer. You can have all your concerns cleared before paying the fees, and one you are assured, you can move forward.
Just fill out this simple form and our Training experts with getting in touch with you and guide you through demo sessions as per suitable timings of you and trainer for this live cisco online training.
What else benefit you get when you attend an online training?
If you are from outside Pune (India) – You save accommodation cost, your meal cost, and travel cost. You need not leave your home, family, friends, job, and business and come to Pune. The same amount of money can be invested in your learning rather than spending on these things. I am sure you understand the difference between investment and expense.
Save time – Time spent on traveling, time spent on arranging funds, adjusting to a new city/country can be saved and can be invested in your learning. More time you invest in your learning, more you gain. More you gain a better engineer you come out to be and help your country grow.

3. Online – Recorded Videos Training – We have candidate / students who are short of time, want to take trainings 10-15 hours a day and revise them over and over. There are the students who take these trainings as per their time, schedule and convenience. They do not prefer regular trainings i.e. every day training rather 10 hours per day or someday 1 hour a day for the training to enhance their knowledge about Cisco Products. The recording video training are for these students.
We recommend students to watch sample/demo of these videos and download/view the same from our online video store.
We are in process of recording videos for CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert), however, as of now we are suggesting CCIE training to be taken online i.e. live instructor-led training.
That’s all for the types of training at I-Medita. You can choose yours wisely now.
