There are a couple of pieces of information that I wanted to pass on to any CCIE Wireless hopefuls out there.
First, it looks like the wireless track is growing in popularity. At the moment, there is a fair amount of time before the next available lab slots. In San Jose and Brussels, there are 1-2 slots left in April. Otherwise, May is the earliest month with a plethora of open lab dates. In RTP, there are some dates available as soon as February thanks to them recently adding an extra day per week to their schedule. So it might not be a bad idea to get a lab date on the books now if you think that you will be ready by the first half of 2014. Remember, you can always reschedule up until 90 days prior to your lab date and your credit card will also not be charged until then.
Hopefully we’ll get even more dates added soon. If Sydney comes back online, that should help as well.
Second, it looks like the physical lab books may be gone from the wireless lab. I have received word that students are seeing the online lab delivery system in Brussels for the wireless CCIE already. I haven’t heard for sure if it has made its way to San Jose or RTP yet. But don’t be surprised if you don’t see a 3 ring binder at your lab station.
