Why is co-sponsoring instructor-led training courses?

Every month, thousands of people come to the site for information and study tools they can use to become better networking professionals. Many of our members, pleased with the assistance they receive from our website, have asked if has plans to expand into Instructor-led training courses.

Wishing to better serve our members and aware that there are scores of Cisco Training Partners providing such services, we decided to ask's own community of technical contributors to recommend a training provider that we could in-turn recommend to the members of our site.

Why did select Advanced Network Information, Inc.(ANI) as our Cisco Training Partner?

When the responses came back, we were most impressed by the comments our Contributors had about a company named Information Innovation Inc. (now ANI). Here's an example:

"What I like most about ANI is that the core of the instructor group is made up of CCIE's, Cisco Press authors, and ex-Cisco employees or contractors, who have been doing network implementations for years and years. In other words, they're networking veterans. A lot of Cisco training partners hire kids who are willing to travel and not make that much money in order to gain experience. ANI hires people who already have tons of experience.

ANI instructors are seasoned network architects, engineers, and consultants who have been in the industry for 10-20 years. They aren't just instructors. They are independent contractors who continue to do network engineering work in addition to teaching. This helps them bring real-world experiences to the classroom to help students address complex design and implementation issues.

Just like CertificationZone, ANI focuses on providing high-quality, detailed technical information. Their instructors go beyond the simple, often slightly wrong explanations that you hear from many trainers and books. They are skilled at providing comprehensible explanations that are also comprehensive."

Why you should subscribe to the ZONE before enrolling in these courses?

If you're a ZONE subscriber and you sign up for any of the ANI classes being co-sponsored by, the ZONE will discount your enrollment fee by the same amount you paid for your existing ZONE subscription. For example, if you are an active twelve-month ZONE subscriber and you paid $179 for your current subscription, you'll receive a $179 discount off the enrollment fee of any of the ZONE sponsored ANI-led courses you enroll. Enroll in two different ZONE sponsored courses during your active ZONE subscription period and you will receive the same discount each time.

So if you want to enroll in one of the ZONE sponsored ANI courses and you're not yet a ZONE subscriber, subscribe before you enroll and your ZONE subscription will essentially cost you nothing. And should you decide to take a second ZONE sponsored course, your ZONE subscription will actually be putting money back into your pocket. You won't find a better deal than that! is an independent product, not sponsored by, endorsed by, or affiliated with Cisco Systems, Inc.
