The Gauntlet....

.....Has been dropped.

I was told today that our team needs more CCIEs. So, they expect me to get my CCIE R/S by the end of December. Sooo little time....since I have not been focusing on it lately.

The good thing is...I think they will be paying for my IE bootcamp, the trip to San Jose, and the test. :D

Now all I have to do is the "easy" part ..... PASS... icon_lol.gificon_eek.gif

    Like an IT outsourcing firm type? Work for one company but do all your work for other companies?

    Thats what I figured, they seem to be the most willing to shell out bucks to mold employess. I to work for an IT Outsourcing firm, we cover everything from communications, to data farm management, to simple break fix and PC sales.

    I have lost track on how much money my company has spent on my training, has to be at least above 100K, certs and college tuition.

    Good luck with that CCIE, you are redefining the certication section on everyones resume icon_lol.gif

    After having all those certs, I think the lab should be a walk in the park for you. I think it'll more about having fun for you than being under stress to pass. And the good thing is that you're not picking up the check.

    Good luck doing the 'easy' part ;)

    Good luck with the lab, Im sure with all your credentials (is that spelt right???) you will take it in your stride. You gonna wait as long as december? I heard that the 3550 is being replaced by the 3750 in October, and those arent cheap to get!

    Just as a matter of intrest do you work? or do you spend all year explaining to your employer you need the day off to re-certify? lol only kidding were all just jelous of your CV

    That's great news Kenny! I think the CCIE lab exam is a challenge regardless of current experience and credentials, but I'm sure you'll take this chance and be one of those who pass the lab exam the first time. Good luck!
