CollabCert Workshop

Join one of the most successful and longest serving CCIE Voice/Collaboration instructors Vik Malhi for an intense 5 day workshop class aimed at helping you pass the CCIE Collaboration Lab Exam. Vik is the second person in the world (and first outside of Cisco) who passed the Collaboration lab exam.


This class is aimed at candidates who already possess the CCIE Voice certification (or were close to passing the lab in the previous format) and candidates who have sat through the 5 day CollabCert ILT. The major difference between this class and the ILT bootcamp is that there is a larger hands-on component. Candidates who sit through this class should have a good grasp of the technology and can focus on strategy and speed. Remember - it’s one thing being able to complete a lab, it’s another getting it done error free and fully tested in 8 hours.

The equipment and lab setup is identical to what you will find in the CCIE Collaboration lab exam. We have invested in servers that are capable of running all of the virtual machines, we have ISR-G2 gateways with PVDM3 modules, 9971 and 7965 phones. Our goal is to make the transition from the practice environment to the actual environment as seamless as possible. This is very important to help you gather the speed required to succeed in the grueling exam.
