Due to the overwhelming positive response that Brian Dennis has had in his newly-formatted 10-Day CCIE Routing and Switching bootcamp (take a look here at his new format here and what students have to say about it here and here), we have decided to completely change our CCIE Voice 10-Day bootcamp to the same, highly-acclaimed format. We now no longer offer just a 5-Day course, as we feel that one simply cannot possibly prepare students fully for the CCIE Voice lab exam (especially with complex, in-depth topics like troubleshooting) in that short amount of time. Instead we are now offering only a 10-Day bootcamp in which NO powerpoint slides are used at all. Actually that's not entirely true - I do have about 10-15 slides that are animations that help a student visualize a call flow - but that's it - everything else is hands-on, live demonstration and in-depth discussion between me and the students of absolutely everything that is covered and testable in the CCIE Voice lab exam. This most definitely includes copious amounts of troubleshooting with debugs and UCM traces - an area most often reported by students both as being a contention point in the lab, as well as one that other vendors don't seem to care much to cover. Students are allowed to work alongside me on their own rack of equipment if they like, or simply follow what I am doing while taking notes and asking many, many questions. There will be lively discussion and example for around 10-12 hours per day, and students are encouraged to work late into the evening on their labs after we are done for the day. There will then be Mock Labs that are designed to be taken home and worked on in the following weeks. If you like, you can work on those labs during the week, however most choose to simply follow along and ask questions as we work through every situation and permutation that can possibly be experienced in the actual CCIE Voice practical lab exam.

Finally, we added a new date in Bangalore, India in August and also decided to lower the price to this newly-formatted class style. Also, I will be teaching every one of these classes. INE doesn't outsource any of our classes to unknown instructors as some care to do. Check out the very detailed course outline to this new style bootcamp.
