Subscribe to Brad Reese speaks out seeks bargain fee of only $28K plus $1.9K in upfront exam fees for its Cisco training
Thu, 12/16/10 - 2:51am    View comments

More than 2 years ago, I blogged about how was charging $95.00 to apply for its Cisco internships.

Well, they're back and in a new Craigslist Seattle job advertisement (see the below screenshot), is now seeking to charge Cisco interns the bargain fee of only $28,000 for its Cisco training: - Craigslist Job Advertisement

Thankfully below, provides an overview of the more than $28K in Cisco training costs that its interns will pay it. - Intern and Training Program Overview

Raising a giant red flag about its offer, the last sentence in the screenshot above requires Cisco interns to pay upfront exam fees of $1,900.00.

However in my personal opinion, it's an especially giant red flag because the price list of Cisco's exam testing center, Pearson Vue, is so economically priced by comparison.

So if its Cisco exam fees appear overpriced, does that mean that its Cisco training appears overpriced too?

What's your take, at $28K and $1.9K in upfront exam fees, is offering a bargain for its Cisco training?
