    I got my voucher a little bit ago and scheduled the exam for May 10 which was the earliest available at two locations I checked by me. I was also told I needed a Cisco ID which I didn't have and was told that would take 10 days, not sure about that.

    I think they're dead set on hitting that $10 million metric. There was an email from them some people got back around September 2017 that hinted at Cisco's value for the certification attempts being $3000 per person (the email mentioned paying only $500 per exam - a discount of $2000).

    This would work out to getting 3333.33 people certified. Not a very round number and maybe it's something else. But I think Cisco extending the cohorts was based on achieving a metric sort of like this one.

    I don't think they anticipated how poorly the drop out rate would be. Here we are with a cohort 7 beginning this year. Good chance this is the very last one, since it's going on 2 years they're doing it now. But they do seem devoted to putting out X number of passes; I wouldn't hold my breath, but I think there is a slight chance.

    Was the dropout rate really that high? How do you know about it?

    I was surprised at the number of people asking for extra retake vouchers. One retake was generous. More than one looked fishy. If you put in the time, it wasn't THAT hard.

    Has anyone used the class or certification for CISSP CEUs? I recently passed the CISSP and am waiting for the endorsement to go through.

    Also, I took the SECFND Exam on Saturday and made a 880. I went through it fast and the only prep I did was the course.

    I could never get them to email me the hours for each class. Opened a ticket, reopened, escalated, closed again.

    It is online, 24/7. Take the classes when you take them. Mentoring sessions are held four different days and times during the week, but you can watch any or all of the recorded mentoring sessions when you want.

    cohort 6, SECFND exam. I just used what they provided, you can watch the mentor session exam review along with Google/Wikipedia on various subjects. I also used one other website that had an video series, I didn't watch the videos just reviewed their notes.

    Dude, I gave up and got my CPEs elsewhere. I tracked my hours and applied the actual time I spent studying for the exams. The rule is that a single entry can't exceed 40 hours.

    In the two years since Chuck Robbins announced the Cisco Global Cyber Ops Scholarship, we've had:
    • Over 70,000 Applicants
    • Over 20,000 Students Enrolled
    • And almost 8,000 students complete both the SECFND and SECOPS courses
    So percentage wise, %29 of the applicants enrolled. Of those enrollees, only %40 completed both courses. Of the folks that completed the course, I wonder what percentage actually became certified.

    Regarding CPE hours - I went back and forth with Cisco about it. They finally directed me to the sales pages for the courses and said they are 40 hours each.

    I cannot believe so many didn't finish FREE classes when given four months to finish them. Now I wonder how many CCNA Cyber Ops individuals are out there in the world.

    Does anyone know what time the vouchers process?

    I've had the SECOPs course done since Monday and didn't get anything Tuesday and nothing yet today. Are the emails sent out in the AM or PM?
