Is this a new program? How can you make the guarantee?
This program is a modified version of a CCIE training program we developed that ran for over three years at a major Cisco Certification training partner. We have used careful statistical analysis of the passing rates of the hundreds of students that attended the program. We know what it takes to pass the CCIE, and what students need in a training program. The primary instructor and course designer, Paul Borghese, has over nine years experience in teaching CCIE training. Besides his live classroom training experience, Mr. Borghese has also built the oldest and largest Cisco Certification community on the internet, GroupStudy.com, which has helped literally thousands of people pass the CCIE.
How is your program different from others in the marketplace?
Thanks for asking! If you study a typical competitor's training product the bulk of the training experience is spent having the students perform mock labs. While it makes the instructor's life easier, performing mock labs is not a very effective use of time. The student learns how to pass an individual lab, but does not learn the detail of knowledge truly required to understand and pass the CCIE. One major CCIE training provider only spends two days teaching and the remaining three days has the students perform mock labs. How can you possibly learn everything required to pass the CCIE in only two days?
Our program differs by the amount of time we use covering each individual protocol. We focus on one protocol at a time and make sure the students fully understand the protocol to a level required to pass the CCIE before moving to the next subject. Take for example, multicast. Our multicast training materials contain 17 permutations of unique multicast scenarios. We spend a significant amount of time describing to the student the different scenarios, how they differ, and how you can recognize the scenario in the lab. You simply can not cover the same material with the same retention rate if the student simply learns via mock labs.
We do use mock labs to simulate a real CCIE environment, but only at the end of the course when all of the subject materials are fully understood.
Another difference is the availability of the instructor. Because of our guarantee, we are financially invested in our students' success. A portion of that incentive is passed on to the instructor, thus guaranteeing the instructor's availability to the student long after the program ends.
Finally, our classes are not open enrollment. Students are admitted only if they show a willingness to learn and work hard. While this may reduce the profitability of the course it provides for a more homogenous class with a single goal ... to pass the CCIE. When you have a small group of people working on a common goal, amazing things can happen.
