My name is George Allard and I have just completed the CCSP course here at Koenig Solutions, Goa.
Like anyone attending a CCSP course in another country I was concerned about the availability of Cisco equipment on the course or if I would be using simulators. I needn’t have worried. On the morning of the first day I walked into my Lab and there waiting for me was all the Cisco equipment needed for the course, routers, switches, IPS’s along with a pair of ASA firewalls. There were also multiple Windows 2003 servers configured and ready to go which we used through out the course.
All this excellent equipment wouldn’t have been much use without the guidance and instruction of a security expert and this came in the form of my trainer called Ajit. .To say Ajit is an expert is an understatement. Not only has he got the technical knowledge in depth but has the ability to explain complex topics in easy to understand terms and give real life examples and scenarios which really helped me grasp the concepts. I know that without his patience, help, encouragement and the brilliant practical labs we completed I would never have passed my exams or gained the confidence that I now have.
The centre itself is really good, very clean and tidy. Labs all have A/C which is vital in the hot weather here and there are a couple of smoking areas. There is free coffee and bottled water always available. Lunch time is when all the students meet in the canteen and chat while eating whatever they choose from the huge variety food that is available including pizza.
I found all the staff at the centre, especially Maria the centre manager, to be helpful, polite, very friendly and they really go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and painless as possible. It is a direct result of how much I enjoyed my time with Koenig that I have just booked the CCSA and CCSE course with them.
