Cisco technologies are by far the most advanced technologies in the Network Engineering sector. Cisco has developed a an entire business model around the technologies in the domain of training and certification to support the technologies. These are scalable technology careers and they go a long way to influence the technology careers of the young technocrat who aspires to climb the ladder of success. Some of the best certifications from Cisco are the CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE on verticals like Routing and Switching (which is basic and fundamental to the world of Network Engineering), Security, Service Provider, Datacenter, Collaboration, Cloud, etc.
As these certifications become popular especially the CCNA which became the talk to the technology training world and eventually learning to the most esteemed certification in the technology world, the CCIE ( Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert). There was a boom of institutes across India especially in the Indian Metro Cities like Delhi, Bangalore, and Mumbai. Some of these institutes eventually became factories churning out large number of CCIEs. They present their graduates and their accompanying numbers on the websites scrolling, some of them showing 100s. For your information, every technology student studying the Cisco Certification Ladder, dreams to be come a CCIE and get awarded the CCIE #XXXXX number. This is more prestigious like the prefix Dr for doctors.
Seizing the opportunity of the attraction of students to the CCIE# numbers, many of the Indian institutes started to create a model of training businesses where the student is promised a 100% pass. Now that is ridiculous!!. Abnormal!! Can you believe that? An examination with an assured pass. Can you smell a rat somewhere?
Here is the game… The institutes get around to finding out the potential questions asked in the exam. They collect this from around the globe and these are called as DUMPS or DUMS or SOLUTIONS or whatever and the likes. The student is then trained to these questions and made to pass the exam. Imagine a whole generation of dummy technologists with certifications that does not mean a thing with regard to their actual understanding of technology and its application in the real world!
We once conducted interview for CCIE Lab certified trainers. A gentleman walked in who studied in one these PREMIUM CCIE MANUFACTURING UNITS that mass produce CCIEs. During the interview, we found out that he could not communicate in English at all. Of course that is not a deterrent for hiring. But when we asked him technical questions, he could not open his mouth, not even the basic, not even in his native language. Finally, frustrated he told us that all we need to do is hire him and he knows the “TRICK” to get CCIE numbers and he assured us that we will become the number one Institute in India and abroad. We closed the interview and asked gentleman never to step into our premises again.
Please be warned. Avoid CCIE manufacturing units/factories. Join a genuine technology training institute that coaches you to be a technology expert to deal with real issues in the real world.
BEWARE YOUNG ASPIRANTS! BEWARE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS. DON’T FALL FOR THE SCROLLING NUMBERS!!!
