In addition to the 5 CCIE R&S Scholarships that Brian Dennis announced last week, we have decided to add on 2 more scholarships, specifically for the CCIE Voice track. Just like Brian with R&S, I will personally select two people to receive everything they need to pass the CCIE Voice Lab Exam (Newly-formatted 10-Day CCIE Voice bootcamp, Voice Rack tokens, Voice workbooks, all Voice-related videos for CCNA Voice, CCNP Voice and CCIE Voice, along with CCIE Voice Mock Assessment Labs). This includes paying for their actual lab exam fee once they feel ready to attempt it. Using these products will be straightforward as you work along a clearly defined path to the CCIE Voice Lab Exam.
We are excited to be able to give back to the community in this way, and we are excited to see how it has changed lives. In fact, I recently had the privilege of having one of the winners from Brian and Brian’s previous CCIE Scholarship program – Mr. Jeriel Atienza from Angola – in my recent 10-Day CCIE Voice bootcamp in Dubai. He had passed the CCIE Routing and Switching, which had changed him and his new family’s life in such a positive way, and he was back for more with the CCIE Voice. It was very nice to see an up-close-and-personal example of how such a thing can really help someone.
As Brian mentioned, more information including how to enroll into this scholarship program will be shortly forthcoming.
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.
