There has been rumors Cisco did this during a beta test in August, but there was no verification. I am just wondering what the Pearson RTP location means for the lab being offered right at Cisco’s offices in RTP, or if this is just a few times per year event.

    With the way they are delivering the VPN now, via a Cisco SSL VPN Portal I don’t think it matters where they actually give the the lab.

    They can do it anywhere – even if the experience sucks (which is does).

    sorry, I means ‘with the way they are delivering the LAB now – not VPN. I have VPN on the brain…

    I saw a posting on this at CCIE Talk as well (http://www.ccietalk.com/2010/02/08/new-ccie-rs-lab-exam-locations).

    Just wondering: If CCIE Labs are moving to Pearson VUE centers, what happens when you need to ask a proctor a question?

    No one knows yet for sure. Some people said maybe Telepresence?

    These labs might just be offerings every quarter instead of the mobile labs so maybe a proctor will be there?

    Sheesh. That should make for a fun testing experience. O_o

    Oh I think this is beta test solely, and someone told Telepresence? =) I don’t think so, it’s impossible, do you know how much it cost? And how many Pearson VUE locations are there in the worldwide?

    I doubt there will be any Telepresence.

    Sorry – I just doubt it.

    Rule of Thumb – Get to the lab before the lab gets to you.



    Should not matter anyway.

    There will be no proctor in the Lab. Only pearsonvue’s proctor who are not technical at all. They will not know anything about the content of the exam. If something goes wrong, their defence is, as an Expert Engineer you are supposed to know how to troubleshoot and pin point the problem. If you can prove that it’s the equipment/cabling problem, you can be given additional time or even retake. Hahaha… This T&C is really benefited cisco and pearson. What to do? It’s us who need the cert, not Cisco. Life is not FAIR!

    All the exams in pearson vue are called off due to technical failure. It’s really ALL in all the cities around the globe. Guess what? No experienced proctor at all. Only some pearson vue proctors. The software crashed halfway when we are thru the exam. And now cisco is saying that they are not going to pay any transport fee incurred if we are going to retake in another city… UNFAIR!
