When it comes to choosing a CCIE track most of the CCIE aspirers are confused, everyday I encounter at least one CCIE aspirers approaching me for an advice. Some times I petty them but there are in need of guidance, so I morally try to support them and guide them to best of my ability.

Why are most of them are confused in choosing CCIE tracks?

Its been observed that most of them are confused at the step 1 of CCIE, they struggle to choose a CCIE track for them, some of them try to meet instructor after instructor of different tracks to select the CCIE track, this makes them more confused. Even I have seem some people start with a CCIE track A for few months and then again they change their track to track B, this is not a good sign for some one who already started the journey of CCIE.

I believe most of them want to choose a CCIE track for different reasons like

  • Which CCIE track is in more demand?
  • Which CCIE track is easy to pass?
  • Which CCIE track offers me more remuneration?
  • Which CCIE track is easy to simulate?
  • Which CCIE track costs less?

So and so forth, well these are not the valid reasons to select a CCIE track. I strongly believe there should be strong desire and passion towards a particular track, which comes out when you ask the series of questions which mentioned in the article “ The Journey of CCIE – Series 1”. Yet some people may need some sort of Pre CCIE counseling in selecting a CCIE track and planning their journey.

Well as per my knowledge no one is offering such service, if some one wants to seek any guidance they can reach me out I can assist them in choosing their passions. Yes CCIE is a passion and can be only achieved when some one gives more than 100%. Please do feel free to reach me out, I will more than glad to help you.
