Comprehensive Training Materials


Boson’s Courseware is organized learning material that contains the information that you need to know to become a proficient IT networker. We offer courseware for IT professionals working to achieve their Cisco CCNA and CCNP certifications and for the person wanting to understand basic networking. The courseware has been built by a team of instructors and subject-matter experts that keep the material fresh and up to date. The courseware is designed for both instructors and self-learners.

What's Included


  • Curriculum is designed around the objectives required for the relevant certification exam. It contains the information you need to know to study for and pass the exams.
  • Lab Guide is a companion to the curriculum. The labs will help you put what you have read into practice by walking you through the application of technology. You can perform the labs using the NetSim network simulator or on real equipment.†
  • Lab Pack for NetSim allows you to perform the Lab Guide exercises in NetSim. Optional.†
  • Administrator Guide simplifies implementation into the classroom (for instructors - available upon request).
  • Instructor slides enhance the classroom experience (for instructors - available upon request).
†An active license for NetSim 11 or later is required to use the Courseware Lab Pack for NetSim. NetSim for CCNA can be used with the Lab Packs for CCNA (ICND1 and ICND2). All Lab Packs can be used with NetSim for CCNP. Lab exercises may also be performed on real equipment; however, due to the complexity and size of some of the topologies, the time and hardware required to set them up and run them on real equipment would not be practical in a classroom setting.

Training Centers, Instructors & Classrooms


The Courseware is organized as a 5-day (40-hour) class for each subject. The courseware itself includes a course administration guide, instructor slides (available upon request), detailed lab setups and an easy-to-follow layout. This, along with its design for classroom use, sets it apart from other courseware, books and study tools available. When Boson Courseware is paired with NetSim network simulator for hands-on lab experience and ExSim-Max for exam preparation, it is everything you need to train your student for the Cisco certification.

Self-Study


The Boson Courseware is not only ideal for classrooms; it can also be used by individuals looking to gain knowledge or achieve the related Cisco certification(s). Each module within the courseware contains an overview, the section’s objectives and the corresponding information in a logical order and simple presentation. Each module also contains a few review questions to help test your knowledge of the covered material and a reference to the related NetSim lab exercises. Pair the Boson Courseware with NetSim network simulator for hands-on lab experience and ExSim-Max for exam preparation, and it is everything you need for your training.
