As you may know, I will be the lead instructor for our New CCIE Voice Advanced Technologies Class.
The main purpose of this post is to outline the class duration and format as well as to announce that I am taking student submitted topic requests for the class. If there is something that you’re having trouble understanding during your studies, or have found something that is not covered in enough depth in other classes or products, submit your requests below as a comment, or directly to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The class will run 10 days, beginning on Monday 25 April and ending on Friday 6 May (sans Sat & Sun), and will begin each day at 07:00 PDT (GMT -7) and run roughly 8 hours, though some days could may very likely run longer.
The format of the class will consist of:
- Some Slides
- Live Hands-On Demos
- Intense Debugging and Trace Troubleshooting
Just as Brian McGahan stated in his post – I too have *so much* content that I am going to be covering in this 10 day class, that I don’t want to rush through any topics or skip any key points just to make the class fit into a normal template. Therefore class length will depend largely on your topic requests as well as how many questions I get from students during the class.
As we noted previously, if you have an All Access Pass subscription (either yearly or monthly) or you previously purchased either the self-paced or live version of the Voice ATC in the past you can attend the live class free of charge by contacting sales. We can only seat 50 people in this particular online course, and last I talked with our bootcamp coordinator, more than 60% of those seats were filling up – so if you want a seat, you had better not hesitate and book it now by getting in contact with sales. Even if you end up not being able to attend part or all of the online version, the recorded class-on-demand version will still be available in your members area. Obviously the nice thing about attending the live version is being able to interact in real-time with me and other peers.
I look forward to seeing you in class!
About Mark Snow, CCIE #14073:
Mark Snow has been actively working with data and traditional telephony as a Network Consulting Engineer since 1995, and has been working with Cisco Call Manager and voice-over technology since 1998. Mark has been actively teaching and developing content for the CCIE Voice track since 2005, and the Security track since 2007. Mark's story with both data and voice technology started out quite young, as he began learning around the age of five from his father who was a patented inventor and a research scientist at AT&T Bell Laboratories. Mark started out on Unix System V and basic analog telephony, and went on from there to large data networking projects with technologies such as Banyan Vines, IPX and of course IP, and large phone systems such as Nortel 61c, Tadiran Coral, Avaya Definity and of course Cisco Unified Communications Manager in both enterprise and 911 PSAP environments across the US and internationally. Mark is also an accomplished pilot and punched his ticket in 2001. When Mark isn't learning, labing, consulting or teaching, he can be found either piloting or possibly jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, hanging off a rock somewhere or else skiing out west. He also might just be enjoying a quiet day at the beach with his wife and two wonderful young kids, Ryleigh and Judah.
