We were already in the process of doing a minor version update for our 3.0 security workbooks and will continue to work on that. That will be ready by the end of this month. We will of course start planning for the version 4 update and rack updates. A post will follow this one with more details but we will start putting out material and racks before the actually changes so if you’re planning on taking it after the blueprint change you’ll be covered.

As a side note I would really hope the R&S lab goes to version 15.2T for the ISRs and 15.0 for the 3560s! Talk about some cool features ;-)

    I’m just begin the journey for V3.0. How soon will your new workbooks and labs be available? Should I simply wait on the 4x materials?

  2. Asai says:

    Is it sure that from Nov 19th new lab exam will be implemented. I need this info as I want to book my lab for version 3(current version) Based on this date, I need to take a date. Please help!

    • Yes. Beginning on the day of Nov 19, CCIE Security v4 blueprint will be tested, and you will not be able to take the CCIE Security v3 exam at any location. You may or may not know this (but just in case you don’t happen to) CCIE is not like the lower-level exams, where there is an overlapping period during which both old and new exams are tested. Rather, with CCIE, once the new date hits it’s a hard switchover.

      HTH!

    I say, if u have some familiarity and can seriously buckle down, have access to the equipment and training material… U and get 2 attempts in one around 12 Oct, and a last v3 attempt 16 Nov. That being some 128 and 163 ish days or so away respectively.

    What is the target for Security Rack to be fully updated ?
    “we will start putting out material and racks before the actually changes”

  5. Chris Winter says:

    Hi. I would like to take the written and lab on the 3.0 blueprint before the 19th November. Will I still be able to schedule these?
    Many thanks

  6. Michael says:

    I bought the v3 materials 3 month before, do I still need to buy new materials for v4 ? eg; the VOD and workbooks

    • When the v4 materials are released you’ll get access to them for no extra charge. It’s part of our Investment Protection Program. More information will be available about it as the new product releases get nearer.
