I got the privilege to train more than 1,000 students in the past 9 years. Most of them are now working in enterprise level organizations.
It was 2007 and I was 22 years old with nothing in hand to start a career. At that time, there was only one Cisco Networking Academy in Sri Lanka, therefore, I chose to self-study to prepare for the CCNA 640-802 exam (old version) in 2008.
In December 2008, I became a Cisco Networking Academy Instructor for IT Essentials. I was the youngest ITE instructor in Sri Lanka at that time and in 2011 I got the opportunity to become the youngest CCAI for CCNA in Sri Lanka. Currently with many recognition awards, I am the first CCNP Instructor trainer in the SAARC region and the only one who can conduct instructor training for all Networking Academy courses in Sri Lanka.
I got the privilege to train more than thousand students under the Cisco Networking Academy in the past 9 years. Most of them are now working in enterprise level organizations and service provider networks. NetAcad programs are designed with lots of hands-on activities and that is one thing which attracts students to the program.
Cisco Networking Academy is a global platform which can be used to inspire students and instructors to make their future brighter.
