Yoshinori Okayama

Disclaimer : This is a Guest Post, prepared by Yoshinori Okayama, 8xCCIE & CCDE for www.orhanergun.net which is the most visited and well known network design website in the world.

First of all, please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Yoshinori Okayama. As a CEO, I’m managing my own company called Root Riff Systems, Inc. in Japan and holding 8xCCIE/CCDE.

Ethan Banks and I have been managing Google CCDE Study Group for more than 2 years. Ethan who is the packetpushers.net founder and friend of mine created this study group to discuss Cisco Certified Design Expert related topics and real life network design with the experts.

Orhan Ergun July 2015 CCDE Training

Attention CCDE Practical & CCIE Career Track Candidates!

I am pleased to announce that my next online WebEx CCDE live stream training will begin on July 20th, 2015.
This class will be recorded and distributed to all students for their future review.

This class will not only help CCDE students pass their practical exam, but also aid CCIE candidates fill in knowledge gaps and further their understand of technical concepts and theory.

Course will be delivered over a one month period, 3 days a week, 3 hours per session.
This is to allow the student to digest the information as well as work through the topics presented.
This approach not only aids in your retention of the information presented, but is also HIGHLY cost effective since ancillary training costs (travel and lodging) are nil.
Students may also take future CCDE offerings free of charge until they pass their CCDE.
