This Sunday I will be live blogging the CCIE Routing and Switching Techtorial (TECCCIE-3000) at Cisco Live 2014 in San Francisco. If you have any questions that you would like me to ask the CCIE team, such as specifics about the new retake policy, submit a comment below. The session runs from 08:00 – 17:00 PDT (UTC -7) on 2014/05/18, so check back on the blog as I post updates live from the techtorial.

Sunday will also be your last chance to get a VIP invitation package to INE Rewired – our 2014 Cisco Live Customer Appreciation Party. Come find me on a break during the CCIE RSv5 seminar which is scheduled in “Moscone West 2010” in order to claim one. There’s only a few left so make sure to get there early!

    Does the retake policy reset over time – for example – I sit the lab this August and fail. Due to work/home life etc, I do not take a second attempt until January 2015. I unfortunately fail again. Can I retest, 30 days later in February ?
