My Experience at IP-GATES http://www.ipgates.com


I have been to IP-GATES (IT TRAINING) training session in Goa India. I completed the CCNP course in batch size of just 2 students. I have around 2 yrs experience on basic router config Its a fast pace class stressing on the important points course. The courses is well designed for this fast track speed.but there was a lot of studying. My instructor was a well experiences faculty, the entire courses was based on practical examples of situations and trouble shooting steps. The instructors were prepared to answer any questions you might have. They made
Sure I knew the previous day material ? ha ha .. I felt like a kid back in school
But its was good!!! It kept me going ???????.

Everyday, you need to put in your effort, study at least 1 hours at the resort. You need to be ready to absorb more the next day
BUT ALL YOURS EFFORTS WILL PAY OFF ?I PASSED ALL EXAMS ? CHEERS?

Now let me tell you about the STUDY AND HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE THEY TALK ABOUT
The beautiful beaches and parties are a relaxation after a intense class , It?s a wonderful experience on the beautiful lawns and beaches at the hotel !!! Goa is a beautiful holiday destination. There was a dinner arranged for me on a dinner cruse on the rive Mondovi. The cruise was called ?Noah?s Arch?. It was great !!!! great food on board
I went on sight seeing trips in a private taxi , some old churches and temples
Goa is clean and unpolluted
This is a great link on Goa..

At the end of the course I made my way to a few pubs and discos? Party is a hard out here in Goa?Great crowds
There was a overnight market, This place has live music playing all the time and unusual things being sold.. its an experience?

The training facility is a great one.. a carpeted and air condition class room with 4 computers in each class and a UPS for each?The rooms are colourfulll.. green yellow and white.. Its cozy.. you could sleep in there ?.

IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE AT IP-GATES? A TRUE STUDY & HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE.

MCSE CCNA AND CCNP TRAINING AT IPGATES INDIA

by danstevens55 In reply to My Experience at IP-GATES ...

Hello everybody!!

I just came back from GOA, India, from a CCNA and CCNP Cisco boot camp training course with IPGATES Cisco training centre.


The course is taking place in the city of PANJIM, which is the main city of the region of GOA
I am not sure if you have been to India yet, the city of PANJIM is actually right on the coastline, several beaches are easily reachable.

The CCNP course takes place over 23 days (slow track) start at 10:00 am and finish at 17:00 hours, Monday to Friday, Saturday can also be a classroom day for extra studies or for taking exams. The teacher was also available on a Saturday for lessons or Labs.

In the class I was with two other international students, all of us got along well, exchanged ideas and also worked together to achieve course work labs.

In regards to the teacher (CCIE qualified), I thought he was particularly good, not only he know his subject very well, but he was also able to answer all questions and provide all materials for practical labs and sample questions. This allowed me to pass all four CCNP exams and also the CCNA exam.

I cannot deny you that it was not easy to keep up with the course and the exams,
I managed to take an exam every 8 days, therefore I allow myself to take an extra day to be sure to pass them all.
I was told that some people were able to take en exam every seven days, but some of them also failed one exam because it is actually a lot to take in every week.
The teacher was flexible to allow extra time for studies and practice labs in order to archive the qualifications.

Lots' of studies were done at home in the evening with all labs and samples exam questions (about 400 for each exam)

All information about the IPGATES training centre in GOA India and costs of the CCNA and the CCNP Cisco training course can be found on the following web site:

http://www.ipgates.com/ccnp_boot_camp.asp

The price of the course included:
(This is what I got; you can also compare it to what it says on the IPGATES web site)

- CCNP course and course materials (books and notepad to write on)
- CCNP exams included
(Only the 1st attempt for each exam is for free, if you fail, then you have to pay for retaking en exam)

- Accommodation
(I took the budget accommodation, and that was good enough, a nice apartment at about 10 minutes from the training centre, almost by the seaside coast.
Apartment of approx 60m2, with 2 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, balconies and bathroom with shower and bath. Air-conditioning, good conditions, There was also a cleaner coming to clean everyday for free.)

- Taxi service in the morning and in the evening, from the apartment to the training centre and back.
- Laptop provided
- Local mobile telephone provided
- Lunch provided by the training centre
- Pick up and drop from/to Goa airport to the apartment.
- One day sightseeing, whereby a driver will take you to all the popular tourist spots for free, or anywhere else you would like to visit.


Finally, The IPGATES team were also a nice group of people, always helpful and polite.
Brian Fernandes, the responsible person for the IPGATES training centre in GOA, was able to accommodates all my needs and capable of coming out and solve any problems at any time, also over the weekend.
I remember the time I phoned him up on a Saturday evening at around 18:00 hours for a problem with the laptop. By 21:00 hours, Brian was already at my apartment and able to solve the problem immediately.
That night he also took me out with some friends of him, therefore he is not just your point of contact, but he can also be a friend. Basically I never felt alone when I was in GOA.

I will be happy to answer any questions you might have about the CCNA and CCNP training course with IPGATES Cisco training centre in GOA, India.
For me, it was the first time in India, and I fully enjoyed the experience.
I spent about five weeks in GOA and I could have stayed even longer.

On the top of that, I managed to pass all exams, something that I could have never believed before going over.

If you are planning your next Cisco training course, please come back to this Post with any questions you might have over the IPGATES Cisco training centre in GOA India. I will be happy to provide extra information.


Cheers,
Dan

HI ALL,

BEWARE OF KOENIG. I HAVE BEEN THERE. THEY PROMISE THE EARTH AND DELIVER ONLY A LITTLE. LOST MY MONEY. FORGET ABOUT THEM PAYING ANYTHING BACK.

ALSO, DANGEROUS PLACE TO STAY. ONE OF MY COLLEGUE HAD ALL HIS BELONGINGS ROBBED IN THE HOTEL HE WAS STAYING.

KEEP AWAY.

My experience about Koenig Solution

by matthias_s In reply to Good experience

Hi,
I was at the Koenig solutions center in Goa this march. I have to say, that overall I was very satisfied and it exceeded my expectations. Yes, they arranged all, the fetch at the airport, the accommodation, etc. I took my MCITP EA certification there. Because of the short time I had, I chose the one-on-one fast track training. I have to say, that my teacher spoke very good English and she really could explain me the things in an easy way. My three weeks weren?t like holiday, because I had to study a lot. But in the end I passed my exam, saw a beautiful country and saved a lot of money. I would definitely come back!
