Updated Saturday 10/18: Cisco Launches Authorized CCIE Training Program “Cisco 360”

194 Words. Plan about 0 minute(s) to read this.

Cisco has launched their own authorized CCIE training program for the routing and switching track. The program is being referred to as the “Cisco 360 Learning Program”. Cisco will be issuing more “official” details in November.  From what I can tell so far, Cisco is offering a program giving the candidate a range of training options (self-paced class-on-demand all the way through instructor-led) at a range of prices from roughly $5K to $20K.

More speculation on my part is that NMC was closely involved and might be behind much of the content. This is based on the fact that NMC is offering the program already, and on URL tip I received several months ago. The URL is still hot, and is presumably still relevant.

  1. The 360 program sounds very interesting, but I’m having trouble getting any actual info on it. cisco.com says ‘go to the learning site and take an assessment.’ it also says ‘cisco partners’ put on the training. But…. what partners, specifically. And what’s the web page for the assessment, specifically. Anyone have any luck getting some real info?

  2. yeah, I saw that link. but it seem to just have info about becoming a company that teaches the class – no info on becoming a student that takes the class.
