Networking II

Course Overview

This course is designed for individuals who wish to design complex network systems as well as troubleshoot networks with Wireshark®. Students will set up complex Automated Logic networks, troubleshoot networks, and create a secure WebCTRL® site. They will also focus on troubleshooting a WebCTRL system by reading and interpreting a Wireshark capture. The dynamic BACnet® binding process is also discussed in this course.

The Networking II course has been developed for individuals that are required to design complex network systems as well as troubleshoot networks with Wireshark. Learners will efficiently understand the installation, configuration, and be able to troubleshoot IP and serial-based networks.

Prerequisites

Who Is This Course For?

The Networking II course has been developed for individuals that are required to design complex network systems as well as troubleshoot networks with Wireshark®. Learners will efficiently understand the installation, configuration, and be able to troubleshoot IP and serial-based networks.

Course Formats

Traditional Classroom

A live instructor will lead up to 12 students (course dependent) in hands-on exercises with minimal lecture in between. Using the situated learning techniques of the Kirkpatrick Model, this methodology fosters a collaborative learning environment where students are positioned to maximize knowledge retention. This course is a 2 or 3-day event depending on location.

Instructor-Led eLearning

A live instructor will lead students using video conferencing and remote access software. The student will have remote access to a training station to complete hands-on tasks, giving them a virtual classroom experience from many miles away. This course is hosted in the same 2 or 3-day timeframe and manner as the traditional classroom format.

Video-Led Virtual

The video-led virtual training allows the student to take up to 9 business days to complete the equivalent of a 1-3-day, instructor-led course. Using video tutorials as the instructor, students will execute the workbook tasks and upload assignments using the Automated Logic Training Portal, asking questions through the discussion board where a dedicated instructor will facilitate. This format also offers “instructor hours” where students have live contact with a certified instructor and other registered students.
