So you've decided it's time to work on getting that cert you've been eyeing. You feel like you have the experience and are ready to take on the challenge, but how do you know when you're ready to take the exam? You may be asking yourself what topics are the most important? Are my skills and knowledge level really up to par? What should I expect once I get into the testing center?
Many candidates feel a certain level of uncertainty about whether they are truly ready for their certification exams, even after studying for months or even years. We created instructor led bootcamps precisely for this reason. Our bootcamps serve as a final stepping stone to solidify your knowledge and give you the confidence boost needed to book that exam! Don't take it from us though, listen to what some of our students are saying.
"So I passed my CCIE R&S at the start of January, and I just want to say a big thank you to Rohit for helping me get there with the advise, training and motivation offered during the bootcamp.
I attended the bootcamp having studied on and off for a while, and went there with a mind set of 'I wanted to do my CCIE, but wasn't confident in my ability.' Therefore I had always found a reason to put it off.
The bootcamp was so helpful for me on a number of different levels. Firstly, the way it was taught really worked for me. The combination of bits of theory combined with ad hoc labs worked really well. The way the labs were created during each session got the whole class involved and thinking how to resolve the issues in front of us, then once an issue was resolved you would throw something else in, to get everyone thinking again. I found it kept me engaged throughout the whole day and throughout the course, which was good. The labs also got me in the mindset of how the exam would be, with the style of questions that could be asked, and in all honesty I really enjoyed doing the labs because they were a real challenge.
Secondly, I found the course really helped with my motivation and confidence. I remember Rohit saying to me that I should book my Lab soon as I wasn't too far away, and that really had a big impact on me. I came away with a lot of motivation after that, and it pushed me to carry on and get it done.
Finally, Rohit's advise on what to study and where to focus was a massive help. It made the study more manageable and helped improve my speed on the core topics, which was really useful in the exam.
All in all the course was awesome, and I probably wouldn't of got there without Rohit's help and guidance during that week."

"I just wanted to let you know that the bootcamp I attended this week exceeded all of my expectations!!! The hotel was a great venue and the staff was quite accommodating.
The design of the curriculum, along with the systematically designed labs, allowed us to apply everything we learned throughout the week. I started using Keith Bogart's INE videos in October and was able to earn my CCENT just one month later. I already knew the instruction was going to be exceptional, but getting to work with Keith at a live bootcamp has definitely made a difference in my understanding of the CCNA material. Any time a question was asked Keith didn't just give a simple answer. He gave detailed examples from multiple points of view including white board diagrams and live demonstrations on switches/routers. Of course Keith always had the answer, even if it was out of the CCNA realm. The fact that he never had to look up anything and just completely knew anything after being asked definitely shows he's an expert in the field. It is one thing to know a topic, but far different when you are explaining it to a group of students with varying skill levels. I am planning to take my CCNA exam in the next couple of weeks with what I learned this week!!"

"I passed my CCIE collaboration v2 Lab Exam on 15th February, 2019 and I just want to say a big thank you to my instructor Mr. Rohit Pardasani and also a big thank you to the whole INE team. I attended the bootcamp with Rohit and he really motivated me and cleared all of the doubts I had about various new topics in the new blueprint. To me, this bootcamp was a game changer. It helped me understand the topics and the inner-workings of them. The combination of theory with lots of labs was really helpful. The most important part about this bootcamp was the post bootcamp support. Rohit really helped me and sat with me on various evenings helping me with doubts that I had and that really helped me pass my lab. This is a tremendous achievement that I could not have accomplished without attending the INE CCIE bootcamp. I would recommend INE bootcamp classes to anyone interested in achieving their CCIE certification."
