Recently we’ve been working hard to put some things together and come up with new products for people who are just beginning their journey toward CCIE R&S. The new, 5-Day Kickstart bootcamp is designed for those who look to bridge the gap between CCNP and CCIE levels of knowledge.
This live, intense class is the fastest way to learn advanced topics such as MSTP, Catalyst QoS, Multicast, tricky NAT scenarios, and many other topics that students find notoriously difficult. All five days will be densely packed with technical information and with the detail level similar to that you find in many of our blog posts. Some of the topics covered in this new class cannot be found anywhere in Cisco documentation. These topics are the result of our hard work and research.
With all this said, probably the most attractive feature of the new class is its price – 2495$ base, which could be even less if you catch one of our special discount offerings!
The first class is scheduled for the first week of September and I'm going to be on the list of instructors of this one for sure! :) Of course, you are required to have a solid "foundation" prior to attending the bootcamp - at the very least, have a good understanding of all the topics covered in the CCIE Written exam.
Finally, remember that the ultimate goal of the 5-Day Kickstart class is to teach you the technologies that you need to know in order to pass the CCIE R&S lab exam. However, just knowing the technologies may not be enough to pass the exam – you need extensive hands-on practice and solid troubleshooting skills to complement your technical background.
