Recently an announcement went out about changes to the CCIE lab exam.
This announcement was not formally approved and will be revised and reissued.
In the interim I want to let candidates know that any exam changes will not impact your study plans. Any content in our exams will be based on the current v3.0 of our blueprints for CCIE security, there is NO change.
A revised announcement will be released shortly.
how do you know its going to be revised please share any offical link ?
I don't have the official link at this time.
please let us know if its going to be revised in upcoming months and is it going to effect the candidates who have already booked the exam for upcoming oct / nov ?
The announcement will be released in the next day or so. There should be no change to existing candidates with respect to additional study requirements.It's still v3.0 content.
When we actually move to a new v4.0 candidates are given at a minimum 6 months notice.
Natalie could you please give a fair idea about the prior announcement time for implementation of the change. Will the candidates be given 6 months of time after the announcement?
All we are doing is removing core knowledge and adding more hands-on lab work.
This doesn't require any changes to your study plan.
is the removing of core knowledge effective from 1st aug or will that also be announced later ?
are you Cisco Team Member?
I am responsible for the CCIE Exam at Cisco.
So, OEQs will be replaced with troubleshooting section, like we have in CCIE R&S ?
ohh sorry i thought you might be a member like us,
it means this info is right, Thanks
Will the introduction of troubleshooting section be applicable for the candidates who have already registered for the exam . If yes , does that mean that the ones appearing before Aug 1 , will continue to get OEQ section in the exam?
The date for the cutover in the erroneous annoucement is incorrect. Once the date is finalized, all exams on or after that date will not have the OEQ section.
can you please tell, if there is any major version change like moving to version 4, cisco will give notice before 6 months or not ?? Update going to come in next days is going to reflect on lab topics or only in the core knowledge part..??if cisco introuduce a new troubleshooting section, normally how many days before cisco announce for this change..?? thanks in advance
