In order to promote it among newer breed of Cisco IT Professionals they introduced a Global $ 10-Million Scholarships for security programs. Cisco would invest $10 million over a two-year period, to establish a scholarship program with the specific goal of increasing the cybersecurity talent pool.

The training was really well organized and we learnt a lot in a short period, the course materials were inline and easy to practice by your own. It was little bit challenging to balance work and study within 12 days consecutively, but Meena made very comfortable and enjoyed sessions because she makes you want to come to class to learn about more and she explains the content so well and doesn’t move on until students really understand it. She was very helpful on exam preparation questions. Finally, I’m feeling comfortable and understood all the concept and preparing for exam. I recommend this class to all....

The CCNA security Training is the basic knowledge for us to clarify and prepare for the CCNA to CCIE Security Certification. During the 13 days of training, we have Increased our Knowledge and we have well understood all theories part and practical part as well. We are working in ALL what we covered on the training. CCNA security is the same practice, what we find in our client Infrastructure. I was really satisfied by the Online training of Luminis, also by the trainer, Meena.

Fantastic training sessions with so much interactivity. I personally enjoyed the labs and the communication methods of the trainer. Ensuring that the whole class was carried along every step of the way, she also made sure to check if we all understood everything before proceeding. Training material was also in line with the curriculum, and I must say that this training has added more knowledge to me. The exam preparation sessions were also made very easy, thanks to the trainer. I will surely take my certification exams to validate my knowledge, and I definitely will enroll for more trainings in the future. Good job! Thumbs up!

I feel that the training needs more practical portions to it. I also feel that the trainees need to be given the chance to do the practical’s on their own before the instructor just gives us the answer on -- how to configure. The instructor needs to articulate more. For exmaple, we only did Private VLan’s and the FirePOWER section last day during the exam-questions session. I felt that for they were important, but we just rushed through them. For someone who has worked on Palo Alto, Watchguard and Fortigate, I feel that the training I have done for the other vendors was stronger than the one I did for cisco. I was expecting a lot more from the Cisco CCNA Security training.

It is my first time undergoing an online training and I have to say it was an absolutely great experience. The level of engagement the Trainer had with the student was top-notch which discouraged anyone being left behind, with active troubleshooting for every student issues in order to progress was outstanding. We had theoretical explanations for each concept, practical examples and scenarios to back them up which transformed an abstract idea into real life situations. I would say joining this training has been a life changing decision for the better as I have greatly increased my knowledge in Networking and the zeal to push and attain higher goals. It is worthy of note to mention Meena has been absolutely fantastic, and I greatly appreciate the sacrifice she has made to make this project a success. I’d be eternally grateful to Luminisindia for the opportunity to be a part of this story and I look forward to more sessions like this.

I admit that the training was absolutely of high pedigree and full of examples, concepts and well labelled explanations. Meena has been on fore-front in making sure that every student understood the discussed topic. Her engagement with the class had been tremendous and most of the time she would like to hear from the students on their issues. The training had meet my personal threshold of being on higher level just like a physical class …I will have a good compliment to other people about changing their career path through such causes i.e. CCNA Security.

I am pleased to be part of the training. It is an opportunity that I could not take 100% benefits because of technical issues (Internet and Power). However, it was a well-prepared training with quality and summarized presentations. All the necessary materials provided were very helpful. The time for the training, though it was tiring because one have almost down as a result of the work, but I always felt happy and eager to join the session on daily basis. The timing were very right. The duration, 12 days was actually loaded with so much, though in a simple manner, but participants may need to revise the contents, video and jottings before a new session, this was not always easy to achieve. As for our formidable tutor, teacher and trainer, Meena, I am blessed to know her and part of her students. If I have future opportunity, I will love to have her as my teacher once again. A strong woman, she never tired, and always encourages the participants to be at alert. Well done, Meena. Namaste!

I would like to say that this CCNA Security course has really broaden my knowledge not only in Cisco configurations but also in terms of security. The trainer explained all the concepts in a way that made understanding those concepts easy as well as how those concepts were applied. I am grateful to the trainer for giving her time to educate me on key and important concepts of security. I will definitely be taking my CCNA Security exam in the near future. The trainer also provided me with all the resource required in order for me to better prepare myself for the upcoming exam. The training was of a high standard and I would definitely be recommending Luminis to my colleagues. Thank You Luminis for this wonderful opportunity you’s have provided me with.

It’s been a very interesting journey, We learnt a lot in a short space period of time. All the theory and practical were very informative. Some days were challenging but that’s how we learn. This was a very interesting journey sadly it came to an end so soon. I wish to do more bootcamps with Meena in future. Once again, many thanks for this incredible training opportunity, please continue to change people’s lives. Thanks you, Meena, for your massive effort, for encouraging us and for your positive energy towards us. Much appreciated!

The practicals and examples were very useful. The recordings helped too. The teacher took time to re-explain in case students did not understand. And the past test questions was a good idea too. I guess the practice project was also a good idea. The whole 13 days was a good experience.

The quality of content and way of content delivery was excellent as trainer did not withhold any information sort of that needed to be shared. I connected to the trainer as though it was a one-on-training as room was given for questions, hands-on practical section and verifying each steps done. I am more vast in CCNA Security and with more little study I would be ready to take my certification exam soon. Thanks, I really appreciate being honored to be ...tutored by Luminis Consulting Team!

The training was informative and the trainer did a good job to make sure the whole concept was understood. Meena took her time to make sure I understand whatever she is talking about with illustrations. Also the study guides and also the projects went a long way to give more insight into CCNA Security.

We had a very mind blowing 13 days of CCNA Security (210-260) Online Training Bootcamp, ...was a bit clueless about few security concepts. I have learned and gained more about the following: (1) Secure Routing and Switching, (2) Cisco Firewall Technologies and Intrusion Prevention System Technologies, (3) Content and Endpoint Security. With full knowledge of above, I think it paved a way for me to easily write my CCNA security exam.

The training has been so helpful. Ms. Meena was so committed in doing this training. She was spending more hours and sleeping late each night. This has been an ultimate gift since it was a fantastic training. I would like to thank her and the entire team that made this happen. Technically, this training was so well laid out. The content of the training was so thorough and Ms. Meena is so skilled with the security part. She taught and demonstrated so well and answered every question informatively. Study material were provided, support was provided and everything.. that we required. I really appreciate to known her and I hope she will be available always to when I have something to ask. Much appreciated!

I found the training to be effective and informative, really opened my mind to understand the concepts better. The practical sessions made the understanding much better and gave me a hands-on feel. Going through the exam dumps gave me a feel of how the actual exam will be. The project assignment will be a good platform to practice all the knowledge learned and acquired. At the end of the process, it will make me more confident to prepare and sit for the exam.
