  • How to Become a CCIE?

    Cracking CCIE Security Lab
    By Himawan Nugroho, CCIE #8171 (R&S, Security)
    Two weeks ago I passed my CCIE Security lab. It was my 2nd attempt in Brussels. I passed my CCIE Routing & Switching lab 5 years ago in Tokyo on 2nd attempt too. I become double CCIE in R&S and Security without taking any trainings or bootcamp. Only with self-study, countless hours in my home lab, and lots of Starbucks Mocca Frappucino.
    Based on my experience taking 4 lab attempts, I try to write down the summary how I did it. This how-to is specific to CCIE Security lab, but the general idea can be applied to any CCIE tracks.
    Scott Morris, Quad CCIE, wrote the article ‘So You Want To Be a CCIE?’ and it’s really worth reading. Yusuf Bhaiji, CCIE Security lab program manager and the author of CCIE Security Practice Labs wrote ‘Insider’s Tips on Earning Your CCIE in Security’ in Packet Magazine August 2004 page 18.

    Why Become A CCIE?

    By admin | March 21, 2009

    The CCIE is a very difficult and expensive (potentially VERY expensive) certification. So why in the world would anyone want to spend the time and money necessary to pass the CCIE lab exam and get their digits? While each CCIE candidate has their own reasons for doing this, there are some common benefits:

    1 Salary

    Oh the vulgarity of chasing filthy lucre! Regardless of your views on the whole “mo’ money, mo’ problems” debate, money is one of the leading motivations for many candidates seeking the CCIE. Because the CCIE is such a difficult and highly respected certification, there is a very competitive market for CCIEs. With high demand and low supply come high salaries. The CCIE has consistently been at or near the top of the certifications with the highest salaries. The current average salary for a CCIE is somewhere in the $93,000 – $111,000 (US dollars) range. I live in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota and I’ve been told that $125,000 is the average salary of a CCIE in this area. Brad Reese has a nice collection of links to various salary surveys. As with any “average” salary you need to take into account that there are likely other variables at play (years of experience, location, specialization, consultant versus permanent employee, etc) but suffice it to say, a CCIE can make a decent living.

    What is CCIE?

    By admin | March 21, 2009

    The expert-level certification is the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE). It is the highest level of professional certification that Cisco provides. There are 5 active CCIE tracks, as below. As of February 1, 2007 there are 14,177 people with active CCIE certifications.

    The CCIE is comprised of a written exam and a “CCIE lab” exam (each in the specific area of the chosen track). The written exam is required to take the lab exam, and has a cost of $300 USD per attempt. Upon successful completion of the written exam, the candidate then qualifies to register for the lab portion. The CCIE Lab is currently $1,250 USD per attempt. CCIE Labs are offered only at Cisco locations. There are currently 10 locations to take the “lab” exam worldwide. The locations are Bangalore; Beijing; Brussels; Dubai; Hong Kong; Research Triangle Park, NC; San Jose, CA; So Paulo; Sydney; and Tokyo.

    The CCIE Lab is an 8-hour hands-on exam designed to demonstrate that the candidate not only knows the theory, but is also able to practice it. Many prospective CCIEs need multiple attempts to pass the lab exam.

    There are no formal prerequisites for the CCIE exam, but Cisco recommends one has at least 3 – 5 years experience in networking before attempting to become a CCIE. CCIE was the first Cisco Certified qualification, and as such there were no other certifications that could be taken prior. The development of the associate and professional certifications was due to recognition of the fact that a CCIE is overkill for many networking personnel, and also for the vast majority of businesses who employ such people, and that certifications needed to be offered at lower levels. Despite the development of the lower certifications, Cisco has chosen not to make them formal requirements for the CCIE certification.

    How to Become a Cisco Certified Design Expert (CCDE Certification)

    By admin | March 14, 2009

    Cisco network certifications are some of the most sought after IT (Information Technology) certifications. There are four levels of Cisco certifications (Entry, Associate, Professional, and Expert) to enhance your professional credentials. Specialist certifications are also offered to verify focused knowledge in many topics.
    According to Cisco, "Expert Level Network Design and Architecture Experience CCDE Assesses advanced Network Infrastructure Design Principles and Fundamentals for large networks.
    A CCDE can demonstrate an ability to develop solutions which address planning, design, integration, optimization, operations, security and ongoing support focused at the infrastructure level for customer networks."

    The next CCDE Practical exam registration is open. There are only three locations around the world: Chicago, Illinois USA, London UK, and Hong Kong, and the exam will take place on 26th August 2009.
    The way to register was not very clear too me, so let me share it here in case you are confused too just like I was.
    1. You need to pass the CCDE qualification 352-001 exam first
    2. You need to have an account in pearsonvue.com (you should have it by now, since you must create an account there to register for the qualification exam)
    3. Go to Cisco Learning Network, CCDE, Practical Exam tab.
    Or just click this link.
    4. Click on one of the locations in Registration Steps point no.2.
    5. The location you select will take you to pearsonvue.com website, login, then select the 352-011 CCDE practical exam. Follow the procedure to pay the exam.
