My company needed us to polish our skills for Cisco Security and then I decided to go from CCNA Security Certification. Our IT manager recommended Network Bulls and I heard from him was not wrong. NB's vastly experienced & CCIE Certified trainers equipped me with all the skills and knowledge required to manage network security devices. Here I learned about all potential security threats, practiced to troubleshoot them under guidance of certified lab instructors. Post completion I was ready for new challenges in my company and my work has been appreciated as well.

Hi everyone, my name is Vikas Kumar and I came from Bihar. After completing my B.Tech, I switched to networking. One of my friends told me about Network Bulls and I finally joined NB in CCIE R&S integrated course training. NB all trainers are CCIE certified and are technically very strong. The placement is very dedicated in organizing campus drives. After completing my training, I got placed in Gigantic Infotel Pvt Ltd. Proud to be an NBian.


Hello everyone, I am Swatantra and like every other graduate, I also wanted to build a bright career. However, getting placed was seeming an unachievable task, then I got to know about NB’s 100% job guarantee course and enrolled at CCIE R&S Integrated course. After a year of hard work, dedication and hands-on training, I got placed in AGC Networks at quite a good package. They have the best trainers and world-class training infrastructure. Their 24*7 lab access facility helped me to learn for long hours without any disturbance. Thanks a ton, NB and team!
