Live Instructor Sessions Available Daily
Attend the sessions you need. Videos alone don’t answer all your questions. Get your questions answered at the live online Q&A sessions. Master the more difficult topics by attending a live online Power Lecture.
View Live Sessions
Our Power Lectures and Q&A Sessions are scheduled daily throughout the week. All sessions can be attended online with any web browser using our RemoteLive™ platform. You can participate fully in the session and speak out loud as if you are sitting in the classroom!
Switches and MAC addresses
In this session we will discuss the movement of frames between switches, how this is different from hub performance, and what is a MAC address in greater detail, such as bit length, format, and OUI.
This session will go deeper into the art of subnetting, from creating a given number of subnets to solving for a given host requirement. It will also discuss working backward from a completed subnet, and explain Variable Length Subnet Masks.
Login vs login local
This session goes deeper into configuring device-level security and scaling up from device-managed authentication to a centralized authentication solution. Discusses the IOS differences between the “login” and “login local” commands.
(Also called “router-with-a-trunk-link”) In this session we will discuss in greater detail how to provide inter-VLAN routing using trunking between a layer 2 switch and a router. We will describe and explain subinterfaces and the dot1q (802.1Q) encapsulation command.
IPv6 address types
This discussion explains the IPv6 protocol for those seeking to broaden their understanding of this topic. It will explain the various address types included in this protocol such as global unicast, multicast, anycast, and the absence of broadcast messages.
Daily Q&A Sessions
Students can attend online and ask any ICND1 questions to our live instructor.
What is the native VLAN?
This topic will cover the importance of the native VLAN in inter-switch communication as well as the IOS commands which influence its selection. It will go deeper into the 802.1Q tag that identifies VLANs as they cross trunk links.
What is the longest prefix match?
This section seeks to define the term “prefix match” as well as explain its importance in the path selection process used by routers to move packets between networks.
EIGRP path selection
This session focuses on the EIGRP DUAL formula used to determine routing metrics and how it is used in path determination decisions. We will also cover how EIGRP reacts to topology changes in best-case and not-best-case situations.
OSPF neighbor states
This sessions covers, level-by-level, the process through which OSPF routers pass as they advance from not configured to ready to move user data. It will discuss designated routers, backup designated routers, and how and when these are needed.
Copying to and from Cisco routers
This discussion centers around disaster preparedness and being proactive as a network administrator. It will discuss methods of saving important configurations, both on the device and on alternate storage locations in case of device failure.
Daily Q&A Sessions
Students can attend online and ask any ICND2 questions to our live instructor.

How many live sessions are there?
There are two daily Q&A Sessions – one for ICND1 and one for ICND2. There are two Power Lectures daily -– one for ICND1 and one for ICND2. The Power Lectures will cycle weekly and the schedule will be staggered to accommodate student schedules.
Is this an Authorized Cisco Course?
Yes. Interface was granted IP rights from Cisco to build videos from Cisco Official Courseware. The entire course maps directly to Cisco Authorized curriculum, and a printed copy of Cisco Authorized courseware will be included with the course.
How is this course different from 5-day live training?
This course is different because students have flexibility to train at their own pace, and on their own schedule. Students have daily access to our live instructor over the entire 3-month training period.
Can I just buy the videos?
No, the licensing agreement with CISCO that allowed us to make the videos prohibits us from selling them as a video-only product.
Are the videos just live classroom recordings?
No, we receive the video rights from Cisco to develop videos based on Official Courseware. They were developed in our studio specifically for video users.
Do I need to attend all of the live sessions?
No. You may attend as many sessions as you need, and sessions are available daily.
What are Power Sessions?
Power Sessions are live lectures on the more difficult course topics. You attend only those sessions that you feel you need.
What are Q&A Sessions?
Q&A sessions are live interactive sessions with the instructor. If you have a question, attend a Q&A session at your convenience to get it answered.
