    I applied for that a few months ago, I had the pre-req exam yesterday, just waiting to hear about the results on whether I have passed on to actually taking the classes yet.

    Just been reading up, they hope to train about 10,000 people.

    Did they give you any indication of how long you will wait to hear for the instalment?

    It does look like a fantastic opportunity so have just applied myself. I guess we'll see what happens...

    I've not heard anything back yet. Just had a chat with one of the Cisco guys and they have been overwhelmed by the responses.

    Still waiting for the test.

    Sorry to hear that mate.
    Did they say why? Is it score based?

    Their Customer Support said people can apply again in Jan, maybe worth considering?

    I don't remember seeing any indication of 'why' in the email.

    I did not know that you could apply again in Jan. This would be really good as then I could sign up after I complete my CCNA Security. Thanks for the info!

    No worries. I am in the same boat. Working towards my CCENT with the thought of "What happens if I get accepted into this"....in the back of my head ha ha.

    Haha. It's reassuring to know that I wasn't the only one. Good luck on the CCENT mate.
