SkillSoft Announces Complimentary Live Learning Sample Class on CCNA Exam

Understand the Most Difficult CCNA Exam Concepts in SkillSoft's Award Winning Virtual Instructor Led Training Offering

NASHUA, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SkillSoft, a leading SaaS provider of e-learning and performance support solutions for global enterprises, government, education and small to medium-sized businesses, today announced the availability of a complimentary Live Learning sample class led by Cisco Certified System Instructors Dan Young, CCIE and Raymond Lacoste, CCNP. The sample class, "Understand the Most Difficult CCNA Exam Concepts," will take place on Friday, December 2 at 11 a.m. EST. Register here for the free class.

In this one-hour class, the instructors will introduce attendees to powerful exam-ready approaches to subnetting calculations. These methods will prepare IT professionals to tackle the most difficult topic of the CCNA exam: IP addressing. While a complete discussion of subnetting is left for a full course, this short presentation is targeted at IT individuals who have been exposed to the power of subnetting, but have not unlocked all of the subtleties of the subnet mask.

"It can be challenging for IT professionals to stay current with the certifications they require for their positions," said Dan Young, Live Learning director for SkillSoft. "For many professionals finding the time to achieve and maintain their certifications is a struggle. Because of the college-style scheduling and lack of travel, students can integrate their Live Learning class time and studies with minimized impact to their existing responsibilities. We are offering this sample class to demonstrate how effective Live Learning can be for both employees and employers."

SkillSoft's Live Learning courses give IT professionals access to world-class instructors with years of industry experience on their own schedules right at their desktops or laptops. For employers, they can get more employees trained within their training budgets, while ensuring they are receiving the training they need to do their jobs.

SkillSoft's Live Learning courses help IT professionals achieve the certifications critical to their job functions by providing comprehensive content in a convenient, online format. The Live Learning virtual classroom brings together subject matter experts in a team-teaching arrangement, providing an interactive, smaller college-style session.

"Our students frequently tell us about their exam successes after completing a Live Learning class" added Young. "Our focus in Live Learning classes is twofold. First, we aim to prepare students for their real world tasks. Students often tell us that the discussions we hold in class are immediately applicable in their day to day operations. Secondly, we try to give students skills and tips to provide them every edge possible in the certification exam environment."

In addition to receiving guidelines for passing critical areas of the CCNA exam, class attendees will receive a complimentary copy of an IT Learning Guide which provides tips for improving first time certification pass rates.
